It's Greek to me

The weather in Dallas has finally entered a normal pattern. It is sunny, hot and dry. It is great weather for cooking outside. To that end, the last two weekends have been barbequing and grilling days. Over the Memorial Day holiday, I slow cooked Saint Louis style pork ribs and chicken. I shared those with my wife's family during a reunion held in the area. This weekend I made Korean style beef ribs and grilled a Chinese flavored Cornish game hen. Both were very good. I was quite impressed with the Korean beef ribs. I learned to rub the ribs with brown sugar and let them sit for an hour or so before adding a Korean style marinade of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, toasted sesame seed oil, and a splash of rice wine vinegar. I marinated them over night before grilling. They were excellent. I did not know about the brown sugar. It makes then very authentic, according to someone's Korean Grandmother. However, the recipe for today is Saganaki, a Greek dish. I usually make this as an appetizer for formal dinners but realized it would make a great breakfast as well. Simply consider it as a deconstructed gourmet cheese sandwich. My twist to this is the addition of butter at the end. You can leave it out and still have a very tasty dish. Opa!

I need ten SIP Trunks

Really? I believe that one of the most difficult things we still have to address is the vernacular of SIP Trunking. Normally when someone calls in and requests ten SIP Trunks, we know that they mean ten concurrent call sessions. Of course, they don't know what a concurrent call session is and some members of our industry have given up trying to maintain the distinction. That is a bad practice. There are times when we do need to sell multiple trunks with varying levels of capacity or concurrent call sessions. If we lose the distinction, we will confuse our buyers even more. So, I know it may seem it's not worth the effort to make sure your customers know the difference between a SIP Trunk and a concurrent call session but ultimately it will benefit all of us.  

It doesn't have to be Greek! See you on Wednesday.
