The Wild Pea. Boy, that's an interesting image, isn't it? The pea is a chick pea, the stuff that hummus is made of. It's wild because there are no limits to what kinds of flavors they'll develop. Founder and owner Blake Wollman thought, "Why can't you make chocolate hummus? Or Bloody Mary? How about cotton candy…? Chocolate? Why not!
He owned The Desert Cafe in Mt. Washington in Baltimore, for over twelve years. By the time he sold the restaurant in May of this year, he had been doing almost all of the cooking and all of the desserts. He started The Blakery – and is that a clever name or what? – to promote his desserts.
His tenure with the restaurant got him interested in hummus, a staple of middle-eastern cuisine. After trying hundreds of flavor combination, he's settled on eight that are always in the lineup, with others - like mojito and carrot cake - rotating in and out.
He's going to talk with us about how this all got started. He's got excellent marketing skills and we'll talk a lot about that. This show promises to be very valuable for all entrepreneurs who are looking to grown their business.
Welcome to another epidsode of the Sack Heads Radio Show! Coming up tonight:
Arizona Governer Jan Brewer VETOES the proposed "Anti Gay" bill today. We discuss the bill and the veto.
A Russian Spy Ship in Cuba? We highly doubt they are there for a Mojito!
Venesuela - and why America should be should be paying close attention.
Roads? Where we are going we don't need Roads....ok, replace Roads with the Army, and that is where this administation is looking. After the Pentagon announced deep cuts to our national defense, the President is looking to spend 300 Billion on Trains, Planes and Automobiles...ok, minus planes...
The Naval War College has released the journal of Admirial Nimitz, it is as impessive as it sounds!
And, a little video on Obamacare and making a riot, at least comedically...we will play the audio tonight! you will not be let down!
Welcome to the Sack Heads Radio Show! Live from studio 1 (unless you're listening to the podcast, then it was recorded live, but not actually live...you get it).
Each week we rip into politics, news and current events. Has the government gone too far? Are your rights being attacked? Out of control world leaders? We got it covered.
With a sharp tongue and occasional potty humor, we strive to keep the facts straight, and pick up where Main Stream Media ignores or hides. This isn't your parent’s conservative talk show; this is the Sack Heads Radio. “Conservative Kick Ass”
Bonnie Kaye's guest tonight is author Tim Smith, an award-winning bestselling author. His books range from romantic mystery/thriller to contemporary erotic romance. He is also a freelance photographer.

Tonight Tim will talk about his newest book being released this week Who Gets the Friends? This is a romantic comedy that is loosely based on actual events. It does contain some explicit sex scenes for people who like to sizzle when they read!

A glimpse of what is to come from the author's own mouth: I was born in Eastern Canada to a family of modest means, but with deep roots dating back to the Mayflower. My ancestor in Massachusetts, though, only lasted a couple of weeks before coming into fatal contact with the local inhabitants, but thankfully his children arrived after and propagated profusely.
I studied English Literature at the University of New Brunswick and generally interacted quite well with some much smarter people. Indeed a couple of my profs awarded me their highest marks. But literary criticism is a hard subject in which to get really great marks (especially near the home of Northrup Frye) so I didn't proceed onto reading the laws. Which may have been a good thing for both me and lawyerin'.
I tried soldiering, but that just proved that I was a bad shot and had a slight problem with authority (since resolved). So I entered the business world and have spent considerable amounts of my own time and other people's money travelling to fascinating places and meeting interesting people.
After my brother died in the 90's, I became a prominent infectious disease activist and was interviewed by about every major newspaper, television and radio station in Canada. We almost caused a downfall of our government by forcing a vote of non-confidence in Parliament and got a billion dollar plus guilt payment to the victims of the disease with which our family members had been criminally afflicted.
Since these days of action, I've been active in politics and have become one of those reportedly shady characters that spend their days plotting sedition in smoky rooms. I've met any number of prominent political bigwigs, have the confidence of several and commonly get called on to make something happen, get something done or help get someone elected or defeated.
