All you have to do is mention a favorite food scene in a movie, TV show, or book.

I'll pick one winner at random.

  • Food Scene
    Season two of The I Love Lucy TV show where she's devouring the chocolate candies coming down the conveyor belt. First it's slow, then fast, faster..I have never forgotten that for some reason..
  • Favorite food scene
    Wow it has to be the I Love Lucy classic chocolate factory conveyor belt scene my most favorite very very funny
  • Pasta
    Lady & The Tramp - the pasta serenade!
  • Willy Wonka...
    and the chocolate river!
  • Stand by Me
    The scene is somewhat gross, but I will never forget story about the pie-eating contest in Stand by Me.
  • Hook
    The scene in Hook where the lost boys imagine their food and then have a huge food fight with it.
  • Favorite Food Scene
    John Candy attempting to finish "The Old 96er" in The Great Outdoors.
  • Food scene
    The lobster scene from Annie Hall. "Annie, there's a big lobster behind the refrigerator. I can't get it out… Maybe if I put a little dish of butter sauce here with a nutcracker, it will run out the other side."
  • Arrested Development
    The puns come quick and fast throughout the episodes of Arrested Development, but you may have missed the names of 2 restaurants: "Miss Temple's" where you go to skip synagogue on friday/saturday nights, and "Skip Church's" for eating brunch and missing Sunday church.
  • Sure tastes good.
    The dinner conversation at the Italiam restaurant in "The Natural" when the old-time, wise coach tells Roy Hobbs, "I don't know how to pronounce it, but it sure tastes good," or words to that effect. I have the same reaction when I try Burmese, Thai, and other national foods!
  • Favorite Food Scene
    "Like Water for Chocolate" when Tita scrapes her chest with the thorns from the bouquet of roses her suitor gives her and suddenly is overcome with the need to cook with its petals. She lovingly grinds the rose petals with a mortar and pestle to add to a dish of roasted quail that she hand caught, killed and defeathered. The recipients of this mesmerizingly succulent dish are forever changed, and this is my favorite scene.

  1. Hiking blocks to an office after fighting traffic is not logical. Having office buildings around the loop, 465 and in cities in surrounding counties is logical. In other words, counties around Indianapolis need office buildings like Keystone, Meridian, Michigan Road/College Park and then no need to go downtown. Financial, legal, professional businesses don't need the downtown when Carmel, Fishers, North Indy are building their own central office buildings close to the professionals. The more Hamilton, Boone county attract professionals, the less downtown is relevant. Highrises have no meaning if they don't have adequate parking for professionals and clients. Great for show, but not exactly downtown Chicago, no lakefront, no river to speak of, and no view from highrises of lake Michigan and the magnificent mile. Indianapolis has no view.

  2. "The car count, THE SERIES, THE RACING, THE RATINGS, THE ATTENDANCE< AND THE MANAGEMENT, EVERY season is sub-par." ______________ You're welcome!

  3. that it actually looked a lot like Sato v Franchitti @Houston. And judging from Dario's marble mouthed presentation providing "color", I'd say that he still suffers from his Dallara inflicted head injury._______Considering that the Formula E cars weren't going that quickly at that exact moment, that was impressive air time. But I guess we shouldn't be surprised, as Dallara is the only car builder that needs an FAA certification for their cars. But flying Dallaras aren't new. Just ask Dan Wheldon.

  4. Does anyone know how and where I can get involved and included?

  5. While the data supporting the success of educating our preschoolers is significant, the method of reaching this age group should be multi-faceted. Getting business involved in support of early childhood education is needed. But the ways for businesses to be involved are not just giving money to programs and services. Corporations and businesses educating their own workforce in the importance of sending a child to kindergarten prepared to learn is an alternative way that needs to be addressed. Helping parents prepare their children for school and be involved is a proven method for success. However, many parents are not sure how to help their children. The public is often led to think that preschool education happens only in schools, daycare, or learning centers but parents and other family members along with pediatricians, librarians, museums, etc. are valuable resources in educating our youngsters. When parents are informed through work lunch hour workshops in educating a young child, website exposure to exceptional teaching ideas that illustrate how to encourage learning for fun, media input, and directed community focus on early childhood that is when a difference will be seen. As a society we all need to look outside the normal paths of educating and reaching preschoolers. It is when methods of involving the most important adult in a child's life - a parent, that real success in educating our future workers will occur. The website www.ifnotyouwho.org is free and illustrates activities that are research-based, easy to follow and fun! Businesses should be encouraging their workers to tackle this issue and this website makes it easy for parents to be involved. The focus of preschool education should be to inspire all the adults in a preschooler's life to be aware of what they can do to prepare a child for their future life. Fortunately we now know best practices to prepare a child for a successful start to school. Is the business community ready to be involved in educating preschoolers when it becomes more than a donation but a challenge to their own workers?
