“It all goes back to the long days of summer, growing up just outside Philadelphia where each Sunday the entire neighborhood would gather for a block party of sorts. As a child, there was nothing better than Mr. Kaufman’s burgers. Philip Kaufman was a butcher and he owned the only prime beef butcher shop in the area. He definitely knew his food. You could smell his burgers cooking over the grill for blocks. All the kids lined up, waiting to get their hands on the first one.
My other grandmother wasn’t as much about order and tradition, but loved filling her cupboards with food her grandchildren loved. She was famous, at least to me, for her sausage pie. And never would a visit go by without at least one trip to the fish and chip shop: Battered and fried cod or plaice with chips (French fries) and usually sprinkled with salt and lathered with vinegar.

That way, you will have no other option but to walk from the couch to the phone to make a call or to check your email. While on the phone, stand up instead of sitting down. At least limit your calls to five minutes or less, OK? Don’t fret, you can always make another call later. Another productive walk from the couch to the phone right?
