    Hello and welcome to #Foodiechats, I am Steve Green, Founder and CEO. I’ll start by sharing that I’m born and raised in Downtown Chicago! One of the best foodie towns in the world! So if you’re ever in Chicago, send me a Tweet, so we can Eat, Instagram and Meet

    My Love of Food and being a Social Foodie
    Building Communities, Live and Online
    The Power of the Hashtag


    My love of food began as a young child. My family always had different theme dinner nights, such as Taco Night, which was my favorite. A tradition that I still love to this day! Growing up, I was introduced to very eclectic food such as Sushi, Oysters, Caviar, Pig Ears, Seafood and much more. We equally had dinner at home, as well as, dined out at the hottest restaurants. As a teenager, I worked at the Taste of Chicago, and at my Grandfathers Hot Dog Restaurant.

    S and M Radio: Erotic foods in and out of the bedroom

    in Entertainment

    The erotic power of food has been celebrated for centuries. Casanova was said to share oysters with his paramours to whet their sexual appetites. Greek and Roman cultures enjoyed a parade of ripe fruits and exotic dishes before engaging in sensual pleasures. It has even been said that a delicious meal is the quickest way to a man (or woman's) heart. Afterall, what courtship would be complete without a romantic dinner?


    Nutrition plays a vital role in love and lovemaking. The quality of our diet has a great deal to do with the quality of our sex. Many nutritious foods can stir libido, revive sexual function and enhance overall health, especially when served up in a sensual way.

    The Make or Break of Fulfilling Relationships - Oysters, Focus & Nuance!

    in Self Help

    RELATIONSHIPS are all about oysters, but not how you're thinking!! 


    In the fast-moving chaos of our everyday worlds, so often we inadvertantly turn relationships into a 'process of relating'. We polish the shell, and forget about the oyster! We lose our focus on what actually matters, and gradually erode the precious connection that holds two people together - the deep dynamic of being together in some personally fulfilling and meaningful way.

    Relationships are not merely about walking in parallel with another someone. Nor are they just about hooking up regularly & touching base. The bonds that really hold people together are more about a deep commitment to moving forwards, facing pretty much the same way. It's all about a magic glue that comes from deep inside. About nuances of precious intention that escape most people as they fight their way through their day.

    To grab hold of that glue takes FOCUS! Love is almost nothing to do with an accrual of shared day-to-day experiences. If it were, why would we have an epidemic of divorce?! It's about what is 'in' those experiences that matters - the deep things that characterize the world that you hold between you... the magic, the quality of love, the calibre of the thoughts that you care to share, the profoundness & clarity of your positive intention towards another human being that tells them: YOU're My Special!

    Yes, it's all about infusion. Of something intangible that comes from inside. An infusion of gluesomeness that takes focus of a different kind & is full of NUANCE of the essence of you.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

     


    ON MY BLOCK


    BY MONA LISA SALOY


    The milkman sells dream books


    And nickel bets once a week.


      Never pay much mind 


       never pay much mind.


     


    Chicken wire fences


    keeps out stray cats and kids.


    Pecan tree brunches hold clothesline,


    Wrinkled sheds, and army blankets


    that shade the sun from


    big galvanized tubs of shrimp,


    Oysters, and crayfish.


     Never pay much mind


     


    Louisiana red clay 


    Track every living room floor each summer


    'til it smokes in red clouds,


    When air never cools,


    but lights up with fireflies dancing,


    Never pay much mind.


     


    On my block,


    the heat stick throat


    and streams off the banquette


     if you spill a hucklebuck


    or a snowball cone


     Never pay much mind.


     


    Smiling faces from coconut mills


    to copper to coffee say,


    "Hey now," or "What'cha know?"


    Never pay much mind


    Never pay much mind.
