PPC of Detroit

Has anyone been lucky enough to experience the People's Pierogi Collective of Detroit? They set up shop in Eastern Market during the summer months. Say good-bye to the standard hot dog cart, the PPC has revolutionized mobile deliciousness. Taking requests from fans, the PPC will experiment with random fillings like PB&J but still offer the traditional favorites like potato & cheese. They also blog these cutie Grandma videos that teach you to, "Polish up your Polish". So sweet.

Great Mashup

Jourdan sent over this mash up from The Hood Internet featuring Arcade Fire and Blondie. Sprawl II gives me goose bumps when I hear it. The transition into Blondie's Heart of Glass is flawless. RĂ©gine Chassagne and Deborah Harry have such timeless voices. I really love this track.

Excuse me, have you seen this building?

I heard about this transformation on XM the other day. The building used for the famous album cover of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti is welcoming a tea shop on the ground level. Yep, you guessed it, Physical Graffi Tea will offer affordable loose leaf teas as well as a new social outlet for people in the city.

It's Pronounced Pux-a-tony

According to Phil, Spring is near! Check out the video from Gobbler's Knob. You can even send a cutie Groundhogs Day Card via the website.

I know that the springtime hard to imagine during the winter blizzard wonderland that we woke up to this morning. But, I never mind a good snow storm. It's a simple way of saying that everything is moving too fast, take a break and slow down a bit. Put on your winter boots, make a snow angel, then keep warm with your favorite movie and a hot toddy!

What's Important

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes." The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things --your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained; your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter; like your job, your house and your car. The sand is everything else---the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the smallstuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. "Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first --the things that really matter-- Set your priorities. "The rest is just sand." One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked." "It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem; there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend "
