Hope all is well. Quick note I know we promised recipes but it is just going to have to be on hold for awhile. Unfortunately, we are under staffed and this time of year is out of control SO we are going to have to wait until we can catch our breaths. With that said I would like share with you guys what we have been up to. The picture you see on the left is a home made cheesecake bite dipped in dark chocolate, yeah you heard my right! We have had to make around 700 this week, of course we make a little extra for just for our taste buds. In addition to the cheesecake bites we have had 3 big catering events this week. I helped set up today and I have got to say WOW, I am truly amazed at how much 2 people can do in a week, They wake up at 6 am every morning and go to bed at around 1 so I have to give credit were credit is due. As I said in earlier posts we can always use extra help! our phone number is 713 446 5826 or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Here is a little update: Oh boy what a long week it has been! We have been working so hard the we forget to sleep sometimes. As most of you know rosh hasahan was a couple weeks ago, which is the Jewish new years, unfortunately we dont spend all night drinking until 12 a.m. Instead its customary to have a big family dinner… we caterd about 3 of those this year…yes they were all on the same day and if it want for my cousins who came into to town to help i don’t know how we would of done it, thanks cousins!
fun fact of the day: Research has shown that allowing chocolate to melt in your mouth produced brain and heart rate activity that was simliar to – and even stronger than – that produced with passionate kissing.

I know that we promised a recipe for this week but the mostly chocolate company has been extremely bust lately which is good and bad. It is good because we are staying busy working hard and reaping the benefits, the downside: It has been time to keep up with our wonderful blog. We promise to be more consistent in the future because we love blogging about cool fun facts and awesome chocolate destinations in Houston. Unfortunately, we have not come up with recipe to share for this week due to this high level of work.
Today I would like to discuss something a little off topic. As everybody should be aware by now, Facebook has changed, once again… I would like to discuss these changes and give my opinion on it. One of the big additions is the Timeline feature. The Timeline feature allows, in a very efficient way, friends/people to see a history of your Facebook activity as appose to just a couple weeks worth. Timeline also includes all of your apps and new ways of expressing who you are. In PC World’s words:
“Timelines don’t replace your Facebook profile, rather offer an alternative view of your activities in greater detail. It is the ‘story of your life,’ and allows people to know more about than just a week’s worth of Facebook activity.”
The Timeline divides content based on high priority, and how long ago it happened. High priority generally means the most up to date news about yourself. Another cool tool with the Timeline is talked about by Alex Wilhelm, who is a Chicago-based writer.
the ability to view a Timeline with only a certain form of content, such as images, or location over time, to better understand a person. Timeline can also include information from individual applications, which Zuckerberg pointed out are wildly popular with its users.
With the emrgance of the timeline comes a new app call the opengraph:
This year, Facebook took the OpenGraph and changed it so that a user can connect to anything. The company highlighted that it is moving from nouns, to verbs. By that it meant that instead of saying that ‘Alex likes Metallica,’ it could be said that ‘Alex is listening to Metallica.’ And so forth.
The addition of the opengraph opens up the idea of sharing music, movies (hulu,netlfix) with your friends via facebook and helps to fill out your profile so people can know even more about you. for example, Facebook music, is a way for you and your friends to be able to listen and share songs together using free online services. After listening to a song it appears on the news feed where friends can click on the song, listen to it and comment or chat about it simultaneously. The same can be done with Hulu via tv shows and movies.
Another cool app I got the pleasure of reading about in Alex Whihlem’s article but have not gotten a chance to see or play with myself is the lifestyle app:
Lifestyle apps that track what a person eats, where they run, and so forth, will track what a user does. This will allow users to see what they have eaten over the past year, and also post certain pieces of that data to their Timeline. The taco fanatic would probably like to share on their Timeline that they went to their favorite Mexican restaurant some 45 times in a year, for example.
I personally do not have a problem with the new features added to Facebook. I definitely notice that privacy in social media is slowly diminishing and this is definitely evident in the new features added. In addition it is annoying having to relearn how to use Facebook every 6 months. Aside from those points, I feel that Facebook should be more detailed and intimate. In my mind, I see Facebook as a social resume. Just like employers want to find people with the right experience and attitude for the job, I think that people what to find friends or intimate relationships with the right/suited social crowd for them, and what better way to do that then to have a online social resume like Facebook.
