The Daily GLOB


Happy Tuesday!



Good morning GLOBers and happy National “Eat a Peach” Day.    Oh man nothing is more perfect than biting into a fresh peach with the citrus sugars literally coating your mouth with juicy goodness.   The GLOB Master has a peach and cardamom pie recipe that brings smiles smiles all aorund with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. 

Did you know Peaches are native to Northwest China, and China still produces over half of the world's peaches. Its scientific name, persica, stems from the erroneous European belief that it was native to Persia, which is present day Iran. Peaches were brought to the Americas by the Spanish in the 16th century, possibly being planted in present day Georgia as early as 1571.

RESTAURANT OPENING: One of the GLOB Master's favorite lunch stops for NY Bagels, Opus Coffee, Pastrami, Corned Beef, hot and cold subs, sandwiches has opened a second location close to the corner of Tower Rd. and Archer Rd.



YOU MIGHT KNOW GLOBERS when I hear the phrase 'Eat a peach' I immediately think fo the Allman Brothers Blues Band and how they affected my music world my entire adult life. I took Duane Allman's death really hard. there was something incredibly special about his slide guitar wizardy.  Gregg Allman's recent death still hurts my heart every time I hear him singing a great tine on the computer, or the Blues music services around town.  It's like a slice of my peach like world has been taken away . .



If you're still hungry and need a good lunch idea FOLLOW THIS LINK to Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog Instagram page.  This is where the GLOB's Image Editor Erica Corbett takes great pleasure in sharing amazingly looking, deliciously yummy images of what we are thinking about, contemplating seriously, and eventually eating for lunch in the Urban GLOB.

Have a totally terrific Tuesday lunch GLOBers and I will see ya right here tomorrow
