Heading to a small business becomes a gamble. As chains become more popular, they get more money to spread even further. The cycle spreads. Entrepreneurs struggle to get the opportunity to start their own endeavors. 3. Lumped funding. Venture capital has been on the rise for more than a decade, peaking in 2015 with $63.3 billion dollars in investments and 2016 was impressive, too, with $47.1 billion in investments . Looking at the total dollar values alone, its easy to think that this is actually a golden age for startups and entrepreneurs. The vast majority of this funding, though, pools in a small number of potential businesses. Venture capitalists and angel investors tend to gravitate toward the ideas and businesses with the greatest possible chance of success and understandably so. Yet startups with more tenuous models, or those covering less familiar territory, hardly ever get a slice of the pie.

What's the last thing that's NOT connected to the Internet? Cookware! Your TV? Internet-ready. Your wall clock? Internet-ready. Your washer? Your fridge? Your beehive? Your doorbell? Your water cooler? Your coffee maker? Your dog collar? Your sunglasses? The can of pumpkin pie mix you bought at the local farmer's market? ALL OF THESE AND MORE connect to the Internet now that we are in the 21st Century! But cookware? Cookware is still just what it always was: a tool that stands alone. Add food, apply elbow grease, follow recipe, eat. That's just how they worked back when "e-" wasn't a prefix. You don't have to worry that your pans are going to post your secrets to Facebook or that you'll get spam-tweets to your saucepan. You can just enjoy living IRL for a small amount of time, and enjoy the fruit of your labors. And then, as you eat, you can surf the web. It's about balance, you know?

LAUGHTER Parting? Takes one to know one. I never thought I would hear her say that. Your thoughts on that. I'm sorry. I think we need pastry all the way around for any sort of pie. We will see you two next hour. I think I will look.

Apparently her pie last week or whatever programme this was did not have a pastry underneath bit. It had a pastry top bid. I've had green gauge pie, you don't have pastry.

I know I said going into the break that, but as a true Northerner which I am among a pie has got to have pastry. A meat pie? You don't just want a pastry top, where is the fun in that. It's a quiche without an edge. We are living in nastier times. A tart
