My Maiden Voyage to the World Of Blog

This is the first time I've ever Blogged (is that a word?), so forgive me! I'm still creating the website, so please have some patience as I figure it all out!

I guess I should introduce myself first. My name is Brian and I live in East Point, GA (a suburb of Atlanta). I'm 39 years old and I'm an Atlanta native-- grew up in Decatur and Stone Mountain. I work in a restaurant named The Flying Biscuit- I'm the Operations Manager. I wear many hats at work. I do: payroll, human resources, bookkeeping, accounts payable, accounts receivable, catering, merchandising, advertising, web site maintenance, guest relations and charitable donations. Once in a while, you'll see me bussing tables or running the cash register in the Bakery!

The Biscuit is a fun place to work- there's always something new and exciting going on. Right now, we have two stores and a third is in the works- hopefully by the end of 2005. Our original location has been open for 12 years. We have recently received a lot of press- in the last couple of weeks we've been featured on Good Morning America, $40 a Day with Rachel Ray & the CBS Nightly News. As for print, we've had two articles about us in the Creative Loafing and one in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (all of these were in the month of August).

I'm a single Dad. Well, I guess you could call me that! I am single, but my kids all have four legs and are furry! I've got 4 dogs: Betty (14 yr old doberman mix I got from the pound), Shelby (7 yr old golden retreiver mix I got from a rescue group), Clara (2 yr old white lab mix- a stray that found her way into my fence and never left), and King (7 month old white lab/boxer mix and Clara's son). Clara has two other babies that occassionaly stay with us, and often visit- Cletus and Lady. Cletus was adopted by my friend Beverly, and Lady was adopted by my mother, Harriet. More about the puppies and the hell they put me through later!
