★~ Sausage Pizza Day:
For some, cheese is never enough, vegetables are better served as a side dish and meat is king. If you fit this description, then sausage pizza was made for you.
From sausage crumbles to chorizo, you can get mighty creative with the kind of meat you like to eat on a sausage pizza. But for some, it’s all in how you pair the cheese and the sausage.
If you want to go with spicy, set-your-mouth-on-fire sausage, a buffalo mozzarella might be just the ticket to calm things down. Or if you like your pizza with Tabasco instead of marinara, pepperjack is a great complement to chorizo as well.
Sweet pairings with fruit, like figs and goat cheese, or bold, spicy deep dish concoctions are great for those looking beyond the traditional meat-lover’s special. Try some of these ideas from Epicurious.

★~ Good to Know:
This Harvard video about income distribution in the USA is extraordinary. First, because it’s so well produced, well researched and calm. Second, because it does a beautiful job of making statistics come to life. There’s a story behind the numbers, and the producers bring the story to life.
If you agree or disagree with the 92% of the sample that is quoted in the video, is less important, than understanding that presenting information in this way, in a way that allows people to hear and see and think, is one of the most powerful tools available to people who’d like to make change. It’s far more powerful than yelling. (Seth Godin)
