My Thrive Chef Francesca

Your Independent Consultant

A bit about Francesca …                    

I have been with Thrive, as a consultant, since December 2010 and I have to say I still love it!

I have always loved cooking and creating food. Even though I was in corporate life, I always found time to indulge in my cooking passion.  I have catered weddings for friends, dabbled in personal cheffing, participated in cook-offs & cooking challenges. I have taken many cooking course in the US and abroad. My favorite course was being trained at one of the top chocolate company’s in the US, Burdick’s Handmade Chocolates.

Food, and the quality of food has always been important to me, what we feed our loved ones has always been important to me. When I found Thrive Life and realized what they had, I was blown away with the quality, the taste and the nutrition! I was in love at first bite.

I love to share what I have learned so ask me how Thrive Life and I can help you and your loved one. If you just want to eat cleaner, healthier while saving on your food budget – Great! If you want to do that while earning some extra cash – even better! If you want to do all that PLUS leave your full-time job in the rear view mirror as I did – I am here to help you do just that. Call or email me now.   805-813-1265.  Talk to you soon.

Test Post

February 16, 2012

Apple's OS X Mountain Lion brings a lot of new features to the table. It's the future of instant messaging, for one thing, and probably more than a few other things as well. But with the update, Apple's also moving to push some of the apps you use—and love—to the wayside like so much rubbish. Here's what's at the top of the OS X Mountain Lion hit list. Adium & AIM Most folks probably ditched the plain old AIM client for iChat or Adium ages ago, but Messages obliterates any reason for hanging onto it. Adium's also under the gun, since its main selling points were its Growl compatibility and easy-to-navigate cross-platform logs. The new Messages has Notification Center banners and an embedded hub to nullify Adium's Growl integration. And if you're a log-fiend, then syncing from mobile devices to your desktop is a really nice addition. Then there's the fact that if you want to loop in FaceTime and iMessages to your chat life, you've got no choice but Messages. That's huge because of just how good iMessage is; it's the richest and best IM protocol, and you'd be crazy to ditch it if you've got an iPhone or iPad. Messages also has the added benefit of being actively maintained by Apple; Adium's mostly left to rot. At this point, the only thing left for Adium, it seems, is skin and icon modding. Which is something, I guess?
