Space Shuttle Enterprise

When Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice heard the Space Shuttle Enterprise was flying over Liberty state Park in Jersey City I grabbed my video and drove over to Jersey City to get some footage near the Statue of Liberty from the Jersey side. Pretty amazing- Enterprise actually never flew into space and was the prototype that tested the Space Shuttle for the Challenger.

“Dear Tom and the rest of the Little Jimmy’s family,

I wanted to write you guys an email about what an incredible business this has been and what the future looks like. This business has been a game changer for my family. My wife and I have been doing this since June 18 here in the Abilene, Texas area. It was great, but it has gotten better. Last month, I made more part-time than I did in my full time teaching job (over $4000). Last night, we did a minor league arena football team’s tailgate party and game. We SOLD OUT. In five hours from 5 to 10, we made about $1300. The baseball caps were flying off the table. I’ve got to place another order tomorrow. I charge $3, $4,and $5, but I give a little larger portions.

The guy in charge of concessions brought his catering truck from DALLAS (200 miles away) where he owns a restaurant right across from the new Dallas Cowboys stadium. He talked to me about bringing my cart ( I will need more) to his restaurant on game days, because he does a ton of business. It would be a lot of gas, but it would be unbelieveable sales. This summer, I will be operating in the mall of Abilene in a prime location for the months of June and July. If it goes as well as I think it will, I will ask for August as well. That will be incredible income. I have events lined up on almost every weekend in the other months, and will need to order more carts as the income from the mall pops in. I could be doing 2-3 events a weekend now be because of the groundwork that I have laid over the past months. My goal is to hire good college kids or husband and wife teams to take carts and work events, giving them base pay plus incentives and expanding my business tremendously. I know that there are risks involved, but I also know that there are really good people out there who need a job and would love to make good money part-time.

Thanks for creating a fantastic business that has changed the financial future of my family. By the way, my daughter and husband are going to be going to graduate school in Rochester, New York starting this summer. He is a physics major with a full tuition plus stipend scholarship and my daughter will have an opportunity to go to the Eastman school of music. Rochester is only a few hours from Elizabeth, so I will be coming up there to see you folks every now and then, and be able to write it off as a business trip, and go see my kids.

Sincerely yours,

Wayne, TX

Margaret Thatcher May Have Helped Invent Soft-Serve Ice Cream
Thatcher

From The Atlantic-
Margaret Thatcher died this morning at the age of 87. While some of her achievements over her long career have been and remain controversial, there is one accomplishment that has proven purely and Platonically beneficial — to Britons, to Americans, to lovers of dairy the world over. Margaret Thatcher, the legend goes, helped invent soft-serve ice cream.

Yes. The Milk Snatcher, who was also an ice cream inventor. The Iron Lady of Soft Serve. Thatcher, you see, before she was a politician, was a research chemist. The future prime minister, then Margaret Roberts, received a degree in chemistry from Oxford in 1947. And she put it to use first in work at a glue factory, and then with a research job at food manufacturer J. Lyons and Company, a “foodstuff conglomerate” in Hammersmith. Thatcher’s task in that role? To help figure out a way to whip extra air into ice cream using emulsifiers — so that the ice cream could be manufactured with fewer ingredients, thereby reducing production costs. (And so that, additionally, the dairy-y result could flow from a machine rather than being scooped by hand.) While Thatcher’s exact contribution to the effort remains, in a way that would foreshadow her future political career, a matter of controversy, her team ultimately succeeded. And the work resulted, ultimately, in the swirly stuff we know today as soft serve. (Or, if you’re in Britain, “soft scoop.”) J. Lyons’s airy dairy was served from ice cream trucks — under the brand Mr. Whippy — in Great Britain. And then, as soft serve is wont to do, it quickly spread.

Despite her work in the field, though, Thatcher didn’t love chemistry. (“I just didn’t like staying in the laboratory that long,” she once explained. “I wanted to have more direct work to do with people.”) But her work in food engineering led to her introduction to Denis Thatcher, then the managing director of his family’s chemical and paint company. Denis encouraged Margaret to switch careers — from chemistry to the field that would prove her real, if not her first, love: the law.
