To make the day a bit more festive, I worked with a couple of companies to pair up wines with favorite cheeseburgers. Omaha Steaks has almost two dozen different types of burgers, so I chose six burgers, piled them high with toppings and cheese, and matched them up with some favorite wines from Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits (White Plains, NY). Happy eating and drinking!
Growing up in Missouri, I always knew I wanted to move to New York City - even though I had never been here, and my vision of the city was entirely formed by fashion magazines, TV shows, and Woody Allen movies. Twenty years ago today, I finally moved here. Each August 30, I celebrate my "New Yorkiversary." Many New York transplants celebrate their date of moving here; just Bing or Google the term! I would say that I bought a one-way ticket here, but my work frequently takes me elsewhere.
They don't call Chicago the Windy City for nothing! It's always fun to do segments outside, although heavy blocks and duct tape go a long way toward keeping table coverings and products secured on the table on a windy day.I had a great time this morning talking back-to-school on "Good Day Chicago," doing our segment live on their Michigan Avenue plaza.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
