mi: Zucchini Bread - a peace offering (read: Bribe) to make up for the fact that I've been gone so long. - 09/15/09 01:51 AM
           It's been a long time since I've written anything here.  So I'm going to ease in slowly and try to build up a head of steam again.   The 16-months have been months of tremendous change in my life but I'm back and hope to a regular read for you once again, if you'll have me.
           So today, I thought I'd share the recipe that has been in big demand when I take a loaf of zucchini bread anywhere.  Because I planted several zucchini plants in my garden, and it's been a great growing season in Grand Rapids, I've had an … (0 comments)

mi: A fun night of live theatre- Heritage Theatr Group Presents "Woody Guthrie's American Song" @ GRCC Spectrum Theatre (Only 3 performances left) - 07/17/09 01:50 AM
      Because I knew three people in the small cast, because I'm a big fan of Woody Guthrie's music, and because I've felt that over the years I've not attended live theater in Grand Rapids Mi nearly often enough, we went to see a delightful performace last evening.
      Staged in an intimate setting with large screen slide shows at either side of the state to provide context, this show was fun, moving, troubling, laugh out loud funny, well up with tears touching all at the same time.
     With a small but very talented cast telling stories about Woody's travels, passions … (1 comments)

mi: It's Winter in Grand Rapids, But there's a wonderful Bloom that you have to enjoy! - 02/04/09 11:37 PM
A week or so ago, I was having coffee with a friend on Saturday morning when she mentioned that she'd had the most amazing dinner the night before at Bloom in downtown Grand Rapids.   She pulled the restaurant's website up and handed me the computer.  I was immediately intrigued and impressed.  It was a very creative menu that offered combinations that triggered my appetite.
 Finally last evening that same friend and I met for dinner.  It was as delightful as I'd hoped it would be.  I was greeted warmly and seated immediately.  Gwen, our server, and I had a chance to … (2 comments)

mi: Floating away my stress in Grand Rapids, MI - 02/04/09 06:41 AM
Floating Away My Stress at "Just Relax Floatation
Grand Rapids, MI
When my February Grand Rapids Magazine arrived there was an article entitled "Floating Free" which caught my eye.  It was about a business a few minutes away from my house that has Floatation tanks (a.k.a. Isolation tanks or Sensory deprivation tanks).  I'd heard of these tanks and seen them in the movies, but did not know of any in my area, so I was intrigued.  The article said that these 8' long, 4' wide tanks have 12" deep water that contains 800-1000 pounds of Epson salt and is maintained at … (4 comments)

mi: Old Dogs- New Tricks or my first Skype Video Chat with out of state buyers. - 01/14/09 11:30 PM
In the grand scheme of things, I don't exactly consider myself an 'old dog', but I realize that I could be deluding myself a bit as I look in the mirror. 
Last evening though, I proved to myself that I can still adapt to new (er) technology to communicate with the next generation of clients.  I'm pretty geeked!  And, I'm Eric Webster, and I aspire to BE a geek! (crowd in the background says "HI Eric!)  
A nice young couple who now live in NYC contacted me at the advice of one of my past clients.  They're preparing to move to West … (9 comments)

mi: Grand Rapids MI- in the Best Life Magazine's- Top 100 Places to Raise a Family!~~! - 05/20/08 01:30 AM
I'm pretty excited today, there's good news in Grand Rapids, MI.  According to the Today show,  Best Life Magazine has issued their Top 100 best places to raise a family and Grand Rapids is #35!  The only Michigan city ranked higher is Ann Arbor at #30.

Best Life is confirming what we knew in 1989 when we selected Grand Rapids as our new home town.  At the time, I was in the restaurant business in Bay City (a place where at least at that time, quantity was more important than quality).  We were in GR for a food show and as … (4 comments)

mi: Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park announces the Summer Concert Lineup for 2008 - 04/07/08 08:18 AM
Do you enjoy an intimate, outdoor venue for concerts?  Prefer a beautiful garden setting to an amphitheatre where you're so far away that the artist looks like an ant, and the jumbo-tron doesn't do it justice?
Oh have a got a venue for you!  Fredrik Meijer Gardens 6th Season was announced over the weekend, and it's a great line-up to be presented at a wonderful facility.

mi: A Bucket List- What a GREAT IDEA!! - 12/27/07 01:29 PM
I just saw a preview for a new movie coming out.  Generally I don't pay a lot of attention to movie trailers, as I'm a confirmed NETFLIX guy. (That way people kicking the back of my seat and talking on their cell phones don't become a source of frustration for me) 
But this one talked about a concept that caused my ears to stand up.  A BUCKET LIST.  The list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket.  What a great idea!  I'm thinking that I have to have one.
I've had a 'Life List' of performances/performers I really … (16 comments)

mi: Merry Tuba Christmas! What great Holiday Fun in Grand Rapids and around the world. - 12/16/07 09:09 AM

Tuba Chrismas began in 1974 as a tribute to the late William J. Bell who as born on Christmas day 1902.  The first performace was at New York's Rockerfeller Plaza Ice Rink.  The music was traditional Christmas music that had been arranged for Tuba and Euphonium.
Our son, Jared has told us the fun he's had for years participating in the Merry Tuba Christmas concerts in various places he's lived and worked.  This year we saw the notice that the 3rd Annual Tuba Christmas Concert was taking place December 16 at St. Cecilia's Royce Auditorium, so after church we went out for … (5 comments)

mi: Great Dining in Grand Rapids MI- Part 3: Reds on the River - 12/13/07 02:00 AM
 We were pretty excited one Saturday as we shopped at the Rockford Farmer's Market, when we saw a beautiful new building under construction on the banks of the Rogue River in downtown Rockford MI.  We'd seen an item in the newspaper that a new restaurant was coming, and from the look of the building and the location it had great possibilities.
    After allowing some time for the new restaurant bugs to be worked out (we tend to not visit a new place for a month or two after they open), we made reservations at Reds on the River for dinner.  It … (6 comments)
