Guy Fieri Hit Rhode Island On Diners Drive-Ins And Dives!
Don’t tell my doctor, but on a rainy Sunday, if I’m cruising the TV before the Patriots, I WILL stop on Triple D Nation to see what Guy is cooking. We don’t eat at diners as much as we used to, because we are at the age of watching EVERYTHING we eat. It really sucks. Sure we have a “cheat day.” I remember the days where EVERY day was a cheat day. Not anymore. Why can’t they invent a pill or injection to help us lose weight. Oh, wait. They did.
Why Do We Love Diners, Drive-In’s And Dives?
I saw a statistic a few years ago that just 163 years ago, the Pony Express was invented. Long before wired communication, men on horses would ride across the country on horseback to deliver news. It took ten days. That was the time of my fathers, father, or grandfather. Not THAT long ago, it took ten days for news to travel. Today, information travels MUCH faster. The average TWEET sent out PER SECOND is about 6000, or 350,000 Tweets per minute, all day, every day. In 163 years, we went from ten days to one second, to send information AROUND THE GLOBE. What will it be like in another 20 years?
My point? Data is coming at us at an overwhelming pace. New studies are now recommending that we BREAK from our smart phones to give our brain a chance to to recharge from all the data we must consume for our jobs, our families and our personal life. In the last five minutes of writing this, I have received three texts, four instant messages. SEVEN items that I must find time to look at, that will take away from time I have reserved for other things.
I think we love shows like Diners Drive-In’s And Dives, because it reminds us of simpler times. It was my Dad who introduced me to breakfast at his favorite diner. Every time I go to my favorite, it reminds me of him.
