We had an interesting discussion on the WIKY Morning Show about a trend in restaurants.  Apparently, more and more restaurants are encouraging their servers to get rid of the pen and paper and take orders by memory.  There are three reasons they're doing this, according to the article in the New York Post  -

 #2.)  It makes the servers concentrate harder, which leads to better service.

On the WIKY Morning Show we posed the question - where is the ONE place you'd take a visiting friend or family member?

Among the several calls and emails we received, The Hilltop, Gerst House, Moonlite, China Bistro, Angelo's, Piece of Cake, and the Log Inn were the most popular restuarants mentioned.  Audubon Park, Garden of the Gods, Angel Mounds, the Evansville museum and planetarium downtown, CMOE, Casino Aztar, Mesker Park Zoo and the LST 325 were the most popular attractions.

The Public Education Foundation is having their 2nd annual Confections of the Rich and Decadent, The Ultimate Bake Sale, and Amy Walker of the PEF successfully recruited Diane and me to donate a baked goodie.  Last year, you may recall, I offered a Coca-Cola chocolate cake, the first thing I had ever baked.  A very nice woman bought it and actually said it was tasty.  Clearly, she was just being polite.  But I thanked her anyway.

This year, I was all set to go with this suggestion from Patti Hilton, a no-bake fudge recipe –

Check this out!  The peeps at UCLA recently finished a 3 year study testing men and women's stress levels around the house. (I'm not sure who thinks these things up, but I digress.) Anyway, they monitered people's brain chemicals to see exactly what stressed people out and what chilled them.
