It’s All Mishegoss — Thursday #101

We’re back from celebrating! Here’s Wednesday’s Newsletter!

#100, published, in the books, and we can’t be happier that we reached that milestone. Let’s keep moving on to bigger and better things.

We couldn’t resist covering a load of food posts today. They were coming at us fast and furious over the web so we added them as they came. We only added the ones we felt were the best and we hope you like our picks?

We’ve read a host of stories about organ donation and the results of them. They are all touching and inspiring, but this one was over the top. Not just because of the donation, but the determination of the Dad. Read it and I believe you’ll be inspired as we were.

Want to make your brain smarter? I can’t speak for Patti since she blows me away in brain power, I am always looking for ways to be smarter. I believe I found my resource for making it happen. Join me if you’re up to the challenge. You can comment below if you decide to join in.

Like I said there is a host of foodie posts and they cover the world of ideas. Speaking of ideas there is even a post for 100 ideas for families this summer. See we aren’t just foodies.

One thing we’ve been thinking about is community. How could we build a community of lifestyle adventure seekers and chat between us and share stories, ideas, and food and recipes? Sorry had to get that one in.

We thought of opening a community/group on Facebook? Not sure how we would work it yet, but we’re thinking it would be a good addition to the newsletter so we can interact with our readers. Let us know your thoughts and if you would be inclined to join the community? It could be a great way to get more lifestyle news and views.

Other than that we’ll see you tomorrow as always and then it’s on to the Weekend. Aren’t you glad? BBQ time.
