On Assignment: Chow Hound

One of my favorite things to do lately at The Star Press is when we go and film/ shoot an episode of "Chow Hound" we go around to different local area restaurants. Some are good, some not so good, some downright bad. Last week was a really good one at a new Thai place in town. We don't get a lot of good ethnic foods here in Muncie so when we do, we flock to them. The owner kept bringing out dish after dish all of them delicious. Pictured below is the red curry, chicken fried rice, and the aftermath.

Winter Wedding

I was a little concerned before the wedding started as it snowed all morning totaling about five inches. Adam and Kara were great and braved the weather to shoot some pictures outside. I have never seen a bride wear long johns before.

Sword Swallower Dan Meyer

Sword Swallower Dan Meyer stopped by the Star Press studio a couple of weeks ago. Dan is an interesting character and was a lot of fun to shoot and chat with.  Dan is one of only a handful of remaining sword swallowers and has set numerous Guinness world records.
It was gut wrenching watching him swallow various things, including several swords and a pair of hedge clippers. Everyone in our small packed studio were all hoping it wouldn't turn into a major clean up operation.

Winter Weather

It's been a long week and a half dealing with ice, snow, and freezing temperatures. The last time the grass was visible here was New Years Eve. I really need a vacation somewhere warm to get me in a happier mood. This winter seems to be dragging on forever. 

The National Guard was called in to help ambulances reach their "customers."
