Pokey O's

You have ice cream shops and you have cookie stores. Somewhere in there is a high concept. Put em together! and you get an ice cream sandwich store: Pokey O’s, where you build yr own w/ 12 kinds of cookie + 10 flavors of ice cream. Go crazy - use 2 kindsa cookies. The concept isn't totally new: There's an ice cream sandwichery in L.A. called Diddy Riese which pioneered the idea in the ‘80s. But those folks are content 2B a single store (and charge $1 vs. $2 here); Pokey O’s is the seed of a chain, w/ more branches TK in the DFW area.

tg: sorry I missed yesterday's postings and thus just learned it was your birthday. a belated happy. also, saw your note on chocolate and smoking. a candy bar a day is my new motto.

since you're not going to ever tell me whether you got my email re career suggestion, going to give it here and let others weigh in on it. since glenn mitchell died, kera needs a new lunchtime show. i've heard you on the radio and you're good.with you wit,food and music expertise, you would draw a lot of listeners. does everyone agree?

I certainly do, but KERA can't afford tg's caliber of talent on their own. Though, I could see some nice syndication profits and good tie-in's with NYCE. The first "Radio Blog." We could be the wack pack.

I like that idea! And it would keep KERA from broadcasting the dreck they have called programming between noon and 2 for the last month. Please, Abby Goldstein, pleeaase...no more sappy renditions of Christmas stories. Let's get TG on the airwaves.

You all have been clamoring for my list of New Year's predictions, and I am more than happy to oblige. These predictions are, of course, based on the foremost scientific knowlege of our time. I'd go into details, but why bother with something you just wouldn't understand?

1. Many of you will see "Mission Impossible III" this summer and make it the film with the best opening of all time. A record that will stand for the ages.

2. A popular uprising in the UK in early 2006 will move Paris Hilton to the top of the just-released "most annoying" celebrities list.

3. A new video workout tape called "Jumping the Couch" based on the gym routine of a well-known celeb will sweep the nation and rid it of obese children and old people with weak hearts.

4. Many of the rescue workers from the 9-11 attacks will find themselves surprisingly clean and free of toxins while having regular bowel movements. Some of them, however, will unavoidably die.

5. I may or may not get married. It depends.

BONUS:
I will have a baby. It will be mine. I'm certainly not going to be carrying it around though. Katie has agreed to be the depository for my baby. The sex of my baby is known to ME. I have predicted the sex and I know what it is. That's all you need to know for now, because I don't want to draw attention to the fact that I am having a baby. But here is a clue. Thank you, by the way, for all the blue holiday gifts.

my posting above didn't make it clear, but restaurants would be part, maybe most, of the food content of teresa's radio show.

By the way, TG, I think your discovery of Giftwala.com (for the "12" link) may be the most obscure link you have used yet. Brava!

"Founded in July 2004, in time, Giftwala.com hopes to become the first stop for people looking to send gifts to Pakistan."

I like the idea. I could be a guest authority on airline food, which just keeps getting worse and worse. Some of the glop they serve is so bad you just want to bail out.

d.b.: glad you agree and would love to hear a show with you on it. it also occurs to me that teresa could do a segment on 7-Eleven and why they are such great sources for limited edition candy bars

tg: what's with that new line at the top of your posting, for google ads and recipes?(at least it is new to me; just noted it today).

I would be willing to talk about food in greenland for the kera audience.

I think you should have Scott on to talk about some of his Mex and 'cue finds.

Some listeners would probably like to reminise about the way we used to eat I'm available -- tho I am still looking for an affordable apartment, especially one in a a brash, happening area.

I don't listen to KERA's lunchtime slot every day but from what I've heard, it sounds like a variety of guest hosts doing interviews with authors and the like. Dallas could definitely use a food show, there's enough eople out there with an interest, right

I think we should do away with radio completely, because it promotes treasonous questioning of the Executive Branch. And the Department of Justice is going to investigate each of you, because I believe you may have been the ones behind the leak of information about the NSA's glorious and patriotic tracking of each of your phone calls and e-mails.

Hold on, there was a Twilight Zone marathon? What a weekend for TV marathons. VH1 had an "INXS weekend", USA had Monk all day today, and Law & ORder yesterday.

The only programs worth watching are the Sunday morning shows, on which Donnie Rumsfeld and I lie through our teeth and watch the moderators pontificate about subtle changes in what we say each time we appear on the program. They don't understand that the bigger the lie, the less they can talk about what's different from the truth. Traitors!

Oh, and "The L Word." My daughter and I watch that together all the time.

Folks, I sure appreciate your input about a radio show devoted to nothing but food and eating. I especially appreciate kirk's reference to the week of holiday programs we had on between Christmas and New Years, which we've done for the last 5 years so Glenn could have a vacation. Teresa is indeed wonderful and I can see her being a part of a show that covers a variety of topics and subjects throughout the week. If we were to consider doing a radio show devoted to a single subject, the most appropriate frequency would be once per week. Public radio listeners are interested in a huge variety of issues and topics. I just don't think a daily, single topic program either serves listeners or reflects our active intellects very well. By the way, if someone wants to take the time to propose an actual program, you can do it through our website.
