I think your best bet is to see if you can hire a good pastry school student to work with you on the desserts you want to make. They're usually willing to work cheaply, and they can cover everything multiple times until you're comfortable with techniques and results. They can also help with the wedding if you find that it's too much. Check with the school of your choice to see about student job listings. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I manage money for clients but I keep it very simple. This week, for the first time, I went to some of the fancy macro meetings to see if I could learn something and do better for my clients. (We're up maybe 1% YTD, it's pathetic). Anyway, this woman spoke, she was so amazing. So smooth, clear, smart, sharp. And it was 8am. I was so intimidated. And impressed. My heart was literally beating on super speed the whole time. I didn't understand everything, but I was so embarrassed to ask questions in front of everyone. Then, I saw her blackberry, and he screen saver had a picture of her kids (I assume). I realized, "she's just a mom". She probably was up last night at 2am like me. She probably went through hell trying to get put of the house this morning like me. So now I'm inspired.

[ - ] I think the thing about naming our kids is that the types of names we give them imply that we care about the types of things names mean, whereas nearly everything else we do in our lives, and in raising our kids, is in direct conflict with the concepts associated with such names. I.e. Grayson (means 'son of the steward' - favored by strivers) or Emma (means 'whole' or 'universal' - favored by people who are not particularly idealistic) . It's why the naming business seems so bizarre and basically trivial what we settle on. If we actually named our kids after the types of things we care about, I guess we could just name them all Mathew Martoma. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

NP.
