Best post and uncovering of a story was my discovery of Ed Burns’ escapades in the Chi via Twitter!!!  By piecing together a bunch of tweets, Elevate Your Presence was able to break the below story first- before local media…

Elevate Your Presence has always loved Edward Burns. Brothers McMullen is pure genius! Burns was in Chicago Filmspotting while promoting Nice Guy Johnny (Comcast 10/26). Friday, when Crain’s Shia Kapos tweeted Burns, he replied he couldn’t get a table at Girl & the Goat & went to Giordanos. The mellow down-to-earth actor even replied to Girl & Goat owner Kevin Boehm sayin no worries & he’d be back next time. Delicious Dirt all around.


I’m back!!  So sorry for my absence to all my Delicious Dirt and Sunshine Sealed readers!!   I can simply say that I am back and better than ever.    Stay tuned for full posts.

Quick bite-

Spotted:  Brian Dennehy today at Whole Foods in Chicago.

Spotted:  Liam Neeson in several restaurants in Anguilla, British West Indies.

For so many, 2009 was not the best year.    Luckily, 2010 has gotten off to a wonderful start.  So much beauty inside a short 19 days!

2010 has been and will continue to be the year of action & change, acceptance & love, friendship & compassion, and peace.

For over a year now I have been singing social media’s praises and today I am even more proud to be a part of this incredibly important movement than ever.

Despite the devastation in Haiti last week, America has rallied to help in every possible way.  Social media was insanely helpful in this process as most of you already know.
