first_imgDear Editor:Who was the man who rounded up all of the young children in our neighborhood on 43rd street in North Bergen in the early 1960s? He loaded us into the back of his truck and took us all out for ice-cream.I was only 7 or 8 years old and I didn’t know the man, but my father must have, because he let me go. My 9 year old brother was too shy to come along. The memory has always stuck with me because it was such a nice thing for a grown-up to do. We children had the time of our lives an unexpected thrill on a truck ride with all of our friends and a grown up doing suck a nice thing, treating us to ice-cream.The shy brother turned out to be outgoing, and I’m a hermit-type, too scared to make conversation at a cocktail party, but I still wonder, over five decades later — who was that man?

first_imgCanada Bread’s frozen arm saw sales drop 4.2% to C$123.8m (£77.1m), after lower volumes were sold in its UK business in the third quarter.The Canadian firm said stronger volumes and selling prices in the North American frozen bakery operations were largely offset by lower volumes at Maple Leaf Bakery UK.However year-to-date sales were up from C$369,804m (£230,325m) to C$371,543m (£231,408m) for its frozen business.The firm said UK earnings were consistent with last year, “as improvements from cost reduction strategies, including the closure of a bakery in the first quarter, were offset by lower volumes and the costs of commissioning new croissant capacity”.Adjusted operating earnings for the group increased 7.8% to C$34.2m (£21.3m), while net earnings fell from $30.3m (£18.9m) to C$24.2m (£15.1m), for the quarter ended 30 September 2012.Richard Lan, president and chief executive officer, said: “Our earnings growth resulted from effective buying strategies and a strong positive shift in our North American frozen bakery business. “We have a number of commercial and marketing initiatives under way to support growth in each of our businesses, and we expect to manage inflationary costs through responsible pricing.”last_img read more

first_imgDead & Company played two outstanding shows at Citi Field this past weekend. With special guest Donna Jean Godchaux by their side, the band worked through an epic Saturday night performance that saw the band play beloved songs like “Shakedown Street”, “Althea”, and “Dark Star”, and returned for a rockin’ second night that featured “Help On The Way” -> “Slipknot!”, “Bertha”, and “Goin’ Down The Road Feelin’ Bad”, which featured bass player Oteil Burbridge on lead vocals (even if only for one verse) for the first time with Dead & Company.Burbridge is having an excellent time in Dead & Company, in general. His ultimate positive energy has been a joyous thing to watch, and with each show he seems to slide more and more into a comfortable, jam-leading role for the band. You can find him smiling wide during almost every song, and his new lightning bolt hairdo and new-found love for the Grateful Dead universe were on full display at Citi Field this past weekend.Oteil loved the shows so much, he has actually released a few videos of Sunday’s performance from his own personal stash. With a camera set up side stage, just next to his usual stage right stomping grounds, Oteil recorded and published three videos on his youtube channel that gives the viewer a new perspective on Dead & Company’s supreme musical communication. Originally reported by JamBase, these three videos show a band that is fluently speaking it’s own language, especially in the knowing glances between Oteil and John Mayer, who has shared in Burbridge’s ridiculously positive on-stage energy.Check out the videos of “St. Stephen”, “Bertha”, and “Black Throated Wind” below, and witness a close-up of the the high-energy, positive-vibed playing that makes Dead & Company so unique.“St. Stephen”“Bertha”“Black Throated Wind”last_img read more
