Celebrating Young Entrepreneurs on Lemonade Day

I will celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit on May 1 by serving my own twist of a half-and-half lemonade with iced Russian Caravan tea.

Prep. for Lemonade Day on May 1Vine.

1/2 black tea + 1/2 citrus = hole in 1. #teaftw

For inspiration, watch the film with Will Arnett on how Arnold Palmer created his own “lemonade-and-iced tea beverage that has become a piece of Americana.”

I hope that the true American spirit will come to field of business and I will therefore organize an event on Lemonade Day with my new project called Americanized. Here is an excerpt from the article, Government regulation: Lemonade Day done wrong, by Nicolas S. Martin:

Lemonade Day is promoted as a way to “inspire a budding entrepreneur!” But it is actually a dispiriting lesson about how hard it now is to become an entrepreneur, whether you’re an adult or a child. It is about how even the most harmless enterprise, the humble lemonade stand, has been sacrificed on the altar of government regulation.

(Los Angeles Times, May 1, 2011.)

Selling lemonade shouldn’t be a crime! Did you attend the Lemonade Freedom Day in August, 2012?

Cheers!

Far Too Good For Ordinary People

Have you heard the expression: “Far Too Good For Ordinary People” or the acronym, FTGFOP? I am talking about tea nomenclature terms like “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe” in my latest EGO Podcast FTW.

Playing Swing Jazz in Swing States?

Do they play swing jazz in the swing states? Will Barack Obama learn from John Kerry’s mistake by not going after the Southern voters, e.g., Florida? Check out the blog, AmerikanskPolitik.se (“American Politics – Fair and Balanced” in Swedish).

Looking South

Read Is Adam Myers’s article, Romney’s Image Changing Among Republicans? and listen to Jim Blasingame‘s interview (“Is Mitt Romney ready for presidential primetime?“) with Michael Reagan.

We want to know if it is a “rush for” a TeaPartyNu tea blend, so it is time for a poll

Tea Houses of Sichuan

This post is written by Linus Hammarstrand:

Sichuan, a province in Southwestern China, has a long and distinguished tradition of drinking tea. For hundreds of years, the tea trail that connected China and Tibet went through the mountainous province. Even today many Sichuanese cities, towns and villages boasts at least one tea-house. These tea-houses serve as the nexus of many communities and the locals come here to exchange news, gossip, relax and of course, enjoy a nice cup of tea. This picture was taken in a small village on route to the city of Meishan.

Tea break at the South Chinese Countryside

The author was at this time leading a biking expedition through Sichuan’s countryside and here we decided to stop for a tea-break, much to the enjoyment of the locals, who hadn’t seen many foreigners in their lives! I am pretty convinced that they are still talking about the day when the Laowais, foreigners, came to town in their strange biking clothes!
