Today was a very sad and reflective day. A brilliant innovator, genius, and role model was taken away from us much too early. My father also lost his battle with cancer at the tender age of 56. I learned from a young age that life is precious. Life is short. Life is right now. Steve Jobs seemed to know all of that and much, much more. He proved by great example that every day was meant to exist on this earth to the fullest. Even after his diagnosis with cancer, Steve Jobs lived, loved, and created products that changed the world and our lives forever.
Below are some favorite quotes from Steve Job's 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend taking 15 minutes out of your busy life to watch it. Like Steve Jobs, the speech is inspring and memorable.
"Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose Faith." – Steve Jobs
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do." – Steve Jobs
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose." – Steve Jobs
"Stay hungry, stay foolish" – Steve Jobs

I scream, you scream, we all scream for homemade ice cream! While browsing Neimans, I ran across this pretty in pink number with stainless steel accents. This stylish yet functional Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker makes soft serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and we're hoping gelato at the turn of a dial. It also features three condiment makers on top that dispense your favorite toppings. Oh and even better yet, it's on sale right now for $100.00 from it's original $185.00. When you think of how much $$ you spend out on frozen treats every year, this investment will be sure to pay off. Just another reason to shop for Spring and invite the friends (and their well behaved kids) over for some home made frozen treats. Also available in white for those who aren't quite into the Hello Kitty pink vibe.

If you have a Blackberry and you’d like some help deciding where to eat (or if you’re jealous of friends playing with Urbanspoon on the iPhone) we have a solution for you.
Urbanspoon’s Blackberry app is a kind of restaurant slot machine. Just hit the space bar (or shake the phone if you have a Storm) and the wheels will spin, until they settle on a good nearby restaurant for you. You can also lock down the neighborhood, cuisine and price you are interested in. Keep spinning until you get a restaurant you want to try.
Urbanspoon on Blackberry also lets you search and browse restaurants, and uses your current location to identify the nearest restaurants to you.
Email the app to your Blackberry
Or download the right app for your phone below.
We don’t have an app for older devices, or for the Pearl, but you can always find Urbanspoon on your Blackberry through the web at urbanspoon.com/m
If you have an iPhone, you can get the Urbanspoon app here.
