Artisan Foods

My friends opened a bakery and cafe. The name is Artisan Foods. It is located in Historic Roswell, the corner of Canton St. and Woodstock Rd. Sayuri and Hoy used to work with Joli Kobe in Sandy Springs. I helped them before opening and give them my opinion after opening.

Hoy makes good bread. I eat more bread than ever. I think the first 3 months is very important.

It is not organized but they need to be familiar and will make their style soon.

My restaurant is well organized because of 6 years of history. I changed a lots. Even now, I change decor or painting of wall. I just made a long bench. Bench seat (booth) is very popular and our customers like that. I am not a carpenter but like those kind of job. No, it is not a job, maybe hobby. I enjoy it very much. Making something is fun and enjoyable. But anyway, everything is for the customer’s satisfaction. The picture is Artisan Foods.

GA state flower

This is Cherokee rose, Georgia state flower, believe or not.

Not Peach, not Magnolia. This tiny petals is rose. I found my subdivision May 4th. It is almost finished blooming but still fine.

By the way, GA peach is bad taste isn’t it! I like CA or SC peach because of taste.

Ecos is great.

Are you friendly for environment? I am and I’m trying to. I got Ecos detergent at Costco.
I bought it when I saw the label which said 100 Natural. And this is good and better than Oxygen. Have you seen TV CM. The guy tests many stain with Oxygen and cleans all of them. That is fake. I tried 1 time and so disappointed. No result found from Oxygen. On the other hand, Ecos is great. Why don’t you but one and try it.

Increasing head speed

I played golf today. Actually I play golf every Sunday for fun, exercise and mental training.
I play with a better players today and learned. He played from back tee, which is longest distance. I carefully watched him. His swing was very first. I almost give up driver recently because of accurate but am trying to use again for breaking 90. I went practice on Saturday and made sure it’s accurate and used it on Sunday. It was not bad and I felt to increase more fast head speed. Professional golfer’s swing is very beautiful and doesn’t feel much power. But their head speed after touch a ball is very fast and hit a sweet spot.
I need swing practice more for this Sunday. I have a heavy weight for club and use it with practice swing. I will see this Sunday. Gold is balance sports. Technically, driver plus iron or wood and putter’s combination. Mentally, keep 18 holes same pace and being cool and need to read distance and wind plus other obstacles.
It is fun and stress. I need to break 90 this year. This is my mission possible. Be cool and practice more.
