Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
Early this morning, Steve (Memphis Morning News producer and co-host) asked me about food safety. Specifically, how long can you wait past the food's date to eat the product? A couple of days? Two weeks? A month?
I'm a stickler for food dates. I have done many interviews on food safety and am permanently sketched out when it comes to the thought of bad bacteria breeding in my food.
So I have looked up a few resources and posted them below - just in case you were wondering the same thing.
