New business idea! Donuts by Drone
(blog only)

I have a new business idea. My first idea was to sell chocolate Easter bunnies with extra ears. That would have worked but it was too seasonal. I totally underestimated how early I needed to start to get all those ears cut off and packaged. Then, I was going to make sweatshirts for writers that were already messed up with ink marks. It turned out that all writers already have a stack of them that they made on their own. My new idea is drones that will deliver doughnuts early in the morning. Don’t tell anyone. I’m afraid will steal my idea…and they already have the drones. All I have so far is one of those balsa planes that has a wind-up rubber band to make the propeller work. I’m trying to figure out a way to make the rubber band also work to carry the doughnut sack. So far, it’s a work in progress. Sign up for delivery now!


I write some serious stuff too: Books, short stories, plays.

A new French toast recipe

Early this morning, I was sleepy, under-caffeinated, vision-impaired, and behind schedule. This happens to independent, free-lance writers a lot. Nonetheless, like the woman on the tee-shirt, I persisted. I slapped the button on the coffeemaker, threw a piece of French toast in the skillet and turned the burner up until the flames almost licked the outside of the skillet. I was in a hurry. Question: has anyone else noticed how, at 5:00 AM in the morning, the bottle of maple syrup and the bottle of balsamic vinegar are surprisingly similar? I didn’t have time to start over. But I have to say the combination of sweet, balsamic vinegar is not totally unpleasant…especially if you wash it down with enough coffee.
