Checking In #20

my weekly column

WINNETKA -- Highlight of the past week probably came on Monday night, as Jeffrey let me help him with his second brew day. I missed the first one, but according to him it went far more efficiently this time around. We managed not to hurt eachother or leave any serious damage to the house. Now its six to eight weeks of waiting to see how delicious his beer tastes.

Following the success of my first Korean Baseball activity, I made another one. Do you have any ideas on how I could make it better? Please, let me know. Also, read an article about basketball that got my b-ball and economics mind buzzing.

Finally, I wrote last week about how Vidal Sassoon has been an inspiration for me. Today I got to experience it first-hand as I got the "$19 model haircut" at the Sassoon Academy in Chicago! Was so cheap, because my hair was cut by a student. Total bargain though, my student had been cutting hair for 15 years and flew into Chicago just to attend this renowned week-long class. Plus, a professional Sassoon teacher was there making sure everything went perfect.
