Lose Weight and Work Out with GSP: Georges St. Pierre: The Famed Martial Arts Fighter Reveals Some Easy Weight Loss Secrets

In our opinion, GSP, not to be confused with GPS, is perhaps the world's greatest martial arts fighter. But part of the secret is proper nutrition before and after fights, and it is amazing how much weight can be gained and lost quickly. See the video at Georges St. Pierre | Elite Athlete of the Week – Yahoo! Sports where you can see more videos on working out.

Valentino's || History of the Incomparable Pizza Restaurant

We were among the early customers at Valentino's (which everyone called Val's), see Valentino's History, a pizza restaurant then located only at 35th and Holdredge, Lincoln, Nebraska.

The pizzas were incomparable and we have never eaten a better pizza since.

Val's has now expanded to nearly 40 pizza restaurants in 6 U.S. States.

Good food just creates its own word of mouth advertising.

Runza Fast-Food Chain, Runzas and More

Hey, I was one of the kids who were among the early customers at the first Runza Drive Inn in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our father took us there, too rarely for my tastes:
"It all started in 1949 with the Original Runza® Sandwich. Homemade dough made from scratch everyday — stuffed full of ground beef, onions, cabbage, and secret spices—and then baked fresh and served hot."
Let me tell you, now that was a delicious food! We were kids, we knew. There was no advertising in those days. You had to eat a Runza to know how good it was.

They have done well in the intervening years, creating a chain of food stores, and expanding beyond Lincoln, now to over 80 locations. What a story to all of us who knew the first building.

Really, one should look into the prospect of franchising them in Europe.

Present U.S. Supreme Court Justices Not Thinking of Retiring in the Near Future: Chez Panisse, Alice Waters and Organic Food a Big Hit Among the Supremes

Mark Sherman of the Associated Press has a nice article at FindLaw on the Justices of the United States Supreme Court at SUPREME COURT NOTEBOOK: Justices staying put, writing that the oldest Justices on the court have no intention of retiring in the near future and discussing the impact of those intentions as regards the U.S. Presidency.

There is also some "gourmet" cuisine news involving Chez Panisse, Alice Waters, "the use of organic, locally grown ingredients" and the Supremes. Really.
