Publisher's Notes:
Today, Jeff on what inspires him:

"The countless news stories, personal experiences and just random things I hear, see or read about each day. Be it the woman who tells me that her office cafeteria is having a Vegan Week, or the news story about the guy who tried to kill himself by putting himself in a bathtub full of ice, there's frequently something that sparks my interest. And from this I either try to write a column, some fiction or a feature article. *None of these stories above are factual--I just made them up to inspire creative brainstorming among other FD readers."

Thanks Jeff!

That's everything for today. Have a good day!
