Ma Ma ma ma ma ma, Ron wrote a cook book! Can we get one? Please, please, please!?
To celebrate the publishing of Ron's Newest Cookbook Peace of Mind Presents: Oodles of Options- A survival Guide to Life... Outside of your Mother's Kitchen, we had a photo-shoot. Sorry guys, you've got me today (the artistic director) Diana's at work, so you'll have to settle for the apprentice. We spent nearly 6 hours walking the Lane-ways of the CBD & South Melbourne, setting up promotional photos. Despite the time we spent doing it, we had fun the entire day. The pic's up above are some of our outtakes. No worries though, once we're done in the editing room, you'll see the madness that MOJO created 8D
Remember it is always important to support the people you know and care about. Whether in life as life or in their business ventures. No matter how normal or "extra" their idea's seem to be, lend a hand. It costs nothing to say, good job, keep it up. You have my support. In in the case of a cookbook, you can be a taste tester! There's your benefit if you don't believe in reciprocity.
The bidness: Peace of Mind a.k.a PACE di MENTE
