I was hoping to try to make my own version of the chocolate filled real eggshells that Martha Stewart created a few years back, but I wanted mine to be more like a Kinder Surprise egg with a toy or small item inside. I also took inspiration from hollow chocolate eggs that contain smaller chocolates and candies, as these make a pleasing rattling noise when you shake them, and I can never wait to find out what is inside.

"This color film clip should interest New Yorkers and those who love the city. It tells of the Gas House District, one of the city's slums until it was demolished in the late 1940s to make way for Stuyvesant Town.

So set a course quickly. Realize that you will be wrong, and plan on making course corrections often.
Great advice for entrepreneurs from a blog post about personal financial planning. I often get hung up on all the things I don't know about what might happen in the future, but it really is all about the planning and not The Plan.
