Honey and Bacon Grease

Honey is akin to bee snot, regurgitated bee spit, or bee beer.  It’s also a good sugar substitute.  Isn’t it amazing how we describe essential ingredients in the modern kitchen.  The common ingredient of honey either devolves and evolves as we choose to use it, and how we choose to describe it. The stages of ingredient descriptions in the kitchen evolve from the newly discovered fad, to mainstream acceptance, and then anachronistic rejection.  Any ingredient in the kitchen, whether it’s honey or bacon grease, is used in a similar manner but for the names used to describe them.   ...

Twitter and Social Media Etiquette

Hard Lessons Learned I must admit that I’m not a social media expert and that lessons here have been learned by first-hand trial and error.   In fact, I’ve been surprised by some of the vocabulary used online.   Others have suggested that I use the online urban dictionary if I’m unsure of the meaning of terms or usage.   And a welcome suggestion it was.   I’m embarrassed to realize that an IT Professional was clueless that the meaning of words can be so different than what i thought.  Nevertheless, I’ve been asked why I share things online....
