Coming Up: Jon Paul scores some resource(ful) traveling tips from a cooking star
Typically a trip to a pier on the Lower East Side of Manhattan would not count as a gay globe trekker excursion, but this outing promised actress Alyssa Milano, various contestants from Project Runway, and something labeled “Electrobatique.” All to help launch the U.S. expansion of Nestlé Waters Resource Natural Spring Water…the thing about Resource I find impressive is that it’s made from 50% recycled product…Compare that to other bottled water from major companies that average out at about only 5% recycled product. So definitely add Resource to your consideration list.
Coming Up: Memories of a life-changing moment.
Standing amidst debris from the fallen towers—a PowerPoint presentation, an old expense report, corners of photos once tacked to a cubicle—I knew that I had crossed a threshold in life. Not so much a loss of innocence. Lord, when had I ever been innocent? But a recognition of vulnerability.
Coming Up: Jon Paul teams up with Wells Fargo & The Advocate to provide tips on growing an LGBT small business using social media.
As a small business owner, no doubt your time is at a premium. So if you already have a company website, Facebook page and Twitter account, you might be asking yourself, “Do I really need a blog, too?” The answer might surprise you.
Coming Up: Chef Juan Pablo lands in the kitchen of The Mrs.—a wealthy, plastic surgery addicted character crazier than any Real Housewife of NYC. He’s stunned by her demands—and the money.
The Mrs. was crazy. There could be no doubt about that. The upstairs maids from Honduras, the downstairs maids from Guatemala, the Puerto Rican house boy, the two Dominican drivers, the Cuban security guards, and the three Colombian nannies all referred to our mistress as The Mrs.—as if she were a flamboyant character straight out of a Telemundo telenovela. Between her collagen-inflated lips, her Botox-smoothed forehead, her surgically enhanced boobs, and her temper tantrums, The Mrs. had all the talents of a trashy TV temptress.
Coming Up: Jon Paul discovers a randy and "Dreadful" gay literary revolutionary from World War II
If you read no further here’s my take: pick up this biography for an insightful examination of a lost literary hero who wrote a seminal book about life in World War II—including gay life. Yep, we’re talking WW2. Not quite the Tom Hanks scrubbed clean greatest generation kind of stuff. And although Burns is no sympathetic character, Margolick makes clear that he’s worth remembering as part of our gay literary history that’s slipping away. Happy Gay Pride Month.
