One of my favorite quotes comes from Senator Robert (“Bob”) Dole when he was running for President. In one of the Republican debates he made the following comment:
“If you don’t tooteth your own horn it won’t be tootethed”*
In many respects there is no truer quote. So, today we toot our own horn.
Having the blog these past 3 years has been a real blessing and a joy. We have met so many people from all over the world and experienced countless new food experiences because of knowing each one of you. Unfortunately, life has been very harried and hectic for us the last 14 months resulting in fewer posts and less time to read the blogs we follow. For our friends and those of you following the blog, we apologize. I assure you we are still cooking up a storm and taking a few photos. The difficulty is trying to put it all together in an enjoyable, informative and readable post. We simply have not had the time and are exhausted when the weekend rolls around. Hopefully, sooner rather than later, things will get back to an even keel and the posting, liking and commenting will increase back to normal. In the meantime, however, we’re glad to see people still reading the blog and commenting. Thanks for sticking with us.
As for tooting out own horn, recently, we were blessed to be featured in Richardson Living Magazine along with 2 other very nice bloggers in the Richardson Community. Unlike the other featured blogs, REMCooks is not a profit center, not to say having a blog for a profit center is a bad thing because it’s not. So we were thrilled when we were contacted by Richardson Living Magazine and asked if we minded being featured in its May/June 2015 Foodie Issue. Of course, we told them we would love to be featured. For those of you having followed the blog for a long time, there is nothing new. We are just super proud Richardson Living Magazine selected REMCooks for its Foodie Issue. The article is below. 😀
For those of you interested in the entire article and what the other bloggers do, follow this link:
* The quote is Bob Dole’s attempt at a Damon Runyon quote from Guys & Dolls. “He who tooteth not his own horn, the same shall not be tooted.”
Of course, my brother, John, has the equally important corollary, He who impresses himself impresses easily. 😀
