Finally! Deep-Fried Twinkies at Walmart

If you consider yourself a person who enjoys eating desserts, but also have a considerable fear of living too long, Walmart now has the treat for you.   Deep Fried Twinkies. Hostess has taken their famous dessert with enough preservatives in it to survive a nuclear apocalypse, while being passed down to your grandchildren and still be considered "fresh" and "edible". And with this marvel of the snack world, delicately holding together all that is and isn't "food", they decided to fry it, and then sell it to the general public in the frozen food section of Walmart.

DAD: HUMOR

On vacation this past week we decided to visit the Michigan sand dunes. I should never have suggested my kids and I walk up the dunes. They promptly ran up the dunes, leaving me to crawl my way up, wondering if I would die with every step. My three year old encouraged me with an occasional, "Go horsey," and "Yee-ha!"

Finally! Grass-Fed Mac-N-Cheese

Thank You Whole Foods! Finally! A Grass-Fed Mac-N-Cheese For years I've been concerned about treatment and harvesting practices of my mac-n-cheese. The very thought that my mac-n-cheese is raised in a small cage- never to see the light of day sometimes keeps me up at night. I have nightmares about the terrible things my mac-n-cheese are being fed- probably even parts of old mac-n-cheese. It's barbaric! It's inhumane! I'm so thankful that one company had the moral fortitude to take a stand against these atrocious practices. Thank you Whole Foods for making a difference! I'll finally sleep well tonight, knowing ...

What is Thorne Inc.?….from my weird family to yours: part 1

What is Thorne Inc.? I'm working on a Master's degree in Leadership and Management. As I consider the different ways to make use of all  the things I'm learning, one ever-present source of application is my family. I noticed that  over the years I've worked very hard applying leadership principles and skills to my work-related goals. But, so often, the people I love more than anyone else receive only my leadership leftovers. Two months ago I began asking the question, "What if I treated my family like a company and began applying all the best leadership principles I'm learning to them?" ...
