    Lisa is great! I took one of her food styling/food photography courses a few years back. It was a great learning opportunity. She taught us some cool tricks of the trade. One of my favorite tricks was to use a clear gum stance to hold food in place that is round and may roll off the plate.

  • Sustain the great work and delivering in the group!

  • Lorri

    You’re a really practical website; couldn’t make it without ya!

  • Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress
    because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • You are so interesting! I don’t think I’ve read through a single thing like that before. So wonderful to discover another person with a few unique thoughts on this subject. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is something that is needed on the web, someone with some originality!

  • A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should write more about this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t talk about such topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

  • An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t talk about these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Very nice post. I certainly love this website. Keep it up!

  • An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me dinner due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this issue here on your web page.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you ought to write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people do not speak about these subjects. To the next! All the best!!
