The Monday Morning Power Digest: August 8, 2022
Small dreams have no power to move the hearts of men.
Monday, Monday, Monday. It’s here. Again. I used to loathe Mondays. Maybe it’s the Boomer in me, but I’ve grown to appreciate the beginning of the week. Tuesdays are another story.
It ain’t all gravy and apple pie though, which is why I started the MMPD. A simple, easy to consume (for the most part) quick-hitter for your Monday morning. If you enjoy that kind of content and haven’t subscribed yet, go ahead and click the button right down there.
Some insane numbers on the MMPD the last couple of weeks. Away we go.
Contemporary Jazz Artist Name of the Week
BBQ Tip of the Week
Use mirin rice vinegar in your coleslaw instead of white or apple cider vinegar. Wonderful umami taste.
BBQ Cupboard Buy of the Week
I added this to my rib finishing glaze Sunday night and it was perfection. It’s got a really unique flavor, not all that different from Mr. Yoshida’s sauce. Has that good deep salty flavor of soy sauce, but finishes sweet like eel sauce and has a little more body than soy sauce. It’s not groundbreaking by any means, but it’s a nice little change of pace.
MMPD Update of the Week
I’ve been doing some serious numbies the past couple of weeks, I’m guessing because I’m sharing some stories from my old TFM/PGP days. In the interest of not living in the past and spiraling down a deep dark hole of professional trauma and personal regret, I’ll be posting more in the future, but for now, we’ll stick with our regularly scheduled MMPD content.
Zillow House That Would Financially Ruin Me of the Week
Price tag: $605,000
Sq. footage: 3,000
Weston, MO is one of the best kept secrets in America. A stunning river town that’s home to the oldest bar west of the Mississippi and Missouri’s first whiskey distillery. It’s a lovely little village that I hope my KC friends visit often.
I would absolutely buy this house and open a bed and breakfast. This house does not have financial ruin written all over it, unless there’s some issues with the foundation or plumbing. I don’t even need to turn a profit off this place. Just break even. Live out my life on the prairie and never need to be bothered, until the new mega-IRS audits my small business into oblivion and I am forced to sell this dream home to Blackrock who will turn it into an Airbnb for people do meth in for three days.
Sorry for the brevity this week, we’ll be back at full strength next week.
