Panera Bread › Career Opportunities › Search Career Opportunities

When I was on Craig’s List yesterday I saw in the Job secion in the Food Hospitality area that Panera Bread is hiring all positions now.

So, being there are tons of people looking for jobs now, I am going to do the smart and ethically right thing…tell my 247 readers about it because that is news that can change a life.

The link will show you career options like Master Baker, which is a wonderful career Panera will train you how to do. I know because I was seriously considering becoming one, but you must not mind working grave yard hours.

Other than that, Panera will train you how to make all the beautiful baked things you see when you walk through their doors.

Shift Leaders and servers are always in need as well as cooks.

Check it out.

If you have been looking for work for a long time, do something new.
Go into an industry you didn’t try before.

The food industry is doing well as people will always eat and like to go out, and there are over 1600 Panera locations in the USA.

If one person gets a job because I posted it, it will be worth writing it.

Try and Be Someone’s Answered Prayer


Maybe it is because I grew up being a very sickly, disabled kid that no other kid liked (because I was “different”), but I was always a sensitive person who learned big words at a young age and knew the meaning of compassion- Today when I see a door that needs someone to open it, I simply walk over and open it for the man with the cane who is trying to carry his coffee and open the heavy, weighted door.

Many people go through life comparing themselves with others. Here is my advice on that: The moment you stop comparing what you do with other’s is the minute you will do what is right and not what is easy, and pave new pathways to better solutions.

Very simply put…

If you see a need, try and fill it.

If you see a wrong, do everything in your power to make it right, if you can.

If you know things could better for more than yourself about an issue that affects millions of people…if something was changed…as in medical insurance, the epidemic of homelessness I have seen in Orange County, CA, or doing something to create more jobs…do it!


On the way on the bus I met a man named Johnny who was out of work over a year. I asked him if he would be willing to try something new in a new industry, and he was receptive.

I heard that Panera Bread is hiring in all positions now and told him to apply for manager training or be trained as a master baker. He loved both ideas and is going there this week.

I know people in the food industry and I get around.

In a funny way I was Johnny’s Answered Prayer.

To become someone’s answered prayer you can’t walk around with your ear piece on pretending the homeless don’t exist and ignoring the poor disabled guy who for some God-forsaken reason is crippled from the war serving this great country of ours but has no home after he gave his life and permanently crippled from it!!

It is things like that which will annoy me until I see that I have peace of mind knowing I made grand efforts to change them to make things “the way they should be”!

Who can you help today that didn’t even ask for it?

What cause do you know by your actions can help more than yourself?

I hope this post makes you think in new and energizing ways.
If I did that, then it was worth writing it.
You will need to unplug your stupid ear piece from time to time and really listen to what is going on in the world around you, and the people in it.

You will have to look around, be perceptive, intuitive and look for things that don’t look right, and not be afraid to ask if thing’s are alright.

Can you remember when the last time you looked eye to eye with your husband, wife or partner and talked around the dining table…with no cell phones around?

Probably not for a long time, if you are like most families.

Try it.

Unplug yourself and tune in to the sounds of a bird chirping, people talking and the world in general.

Maybe you will be someone’s Answered Prayer this week. It isn’t hard to do. It all begins with a “hello” and a genuine, simple “How are You”?

News You Can Use- Daily Edition. See what’s going on in the world

I got so tired of writing and reading about food I wanted to branch out to other venues so I created “News You Can Use” last year.

Science, technology, animals, environment, education, politics, world events, astronomy and business are a few of the topics covered as it is updated each day.

I hope you like it. Also, if you have ideas of subjects to add please tell me and I will see if I can incorporate it into the already nearly 50 news sources the paper derives its information from.

A Warm Hug and Thank You to My Devout 230 Intelligent Followers!


I wanted to take time to thank the many extraordinary and talented writers, photographers, and others who compose now 230 followers on Totally Inspired Mind-

where positive minds congregate.

I have more fun writing and contributing to this site, than maybe any other.

Even though Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World! is going strong now nearly 3 years, and costing a fortune on to keep running-I still love it. I wish more people would put their recipes up on it, as I didn’t want to be the star of the show with it, but to let other amazing cooks show off theirs, as well as mine!

I wish I could hold some kind of public event where I could see and meet all those who write in an continually say they enjoyed what I write and share and capture with my Kodak or Nikon cameras.

Perhaps I will think of an event to create and then do just that.

Have any ideas for a great story?

I went for a job as the PR Director of Battres Construction yesterday. I met with the owner and I sent writing samples and photo samples from various client’s of mine. I don’t know yet but then great things do not happen over night either.

They found me on Twitter and liked what they saw and invited me into their show room.

Any thing is possible in this technological age.

God bless you all and if you don’t believe in God then just I wish you peace of body, mind and soul.

Kind Words May Be Short and Easy To Speak But Their Echoes Are Truly Endless

Mother Teresa said those words when she was living a saint’s life doing good works for lepers and the needy in Calcutta.


I compare good works and especially the recognition of the innate worth of another human being, as like a ripple in a stream.

What you invest in another life comes back in dividends to that person as long as he or she lives. Mother Teresa did this every day in act, word and deed.


The next time you go somewhere, ask the person who is your cashier, waitress or the guy doing way too much manual labor and hasn’t had a day off in weeks.

Ask them genuinely the magic three words that are life-changing…”How are you?”

Watch what happens. We may not be Mother Teresa but we all can do many more kind and thoughtful, totally selfless acts without being told…just because it is the right thing to do and because we can.

See how many times you can ask the mothers on the bus if you can help them with carry something when their arms are full.

Tell the lady who has a brace on her knee you hope her leg heals soon and she has full mobility soon.

I do all the time and it makes me smile when I see the warmth radiated back at me and also surprise that I would genuinely care.

I love people who make me laugh….


When was the last time you watched a good comedy or did something light hearted? You need to from time to time. Doing such things gives balance to your life and a release of all the stress from your day to day problems.
You will find by adding levity to your life you’ll have a fresh attitude about the more pressing things you are dealing with.

Things will be easier and you will accomplish things faster.
Laughter keeps you YOUNG most of all and gives you a healthy attitude towards life.

Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily and Help Me Fight For My Mother

Here is the latest edition of Ramona’s Alzheimer Disease Daily for your reading enjoyment.
This covers topics like memory, recognition, dementia, neuroscience, preventing dementia, exercise, and lots of other important subjects.

I love you mom and miss you a lot and soon I will be able to see you whenever I want again. My mother Ramona is 82 years old and my oldest sister & brother in law have been hanging the phone up when I call and making it near impossible to see her. The rediculous thing is they claim to “care about her” but took her from the house she and dad lived in with no warning, and never allowed her to go back into her own house to pick out things she might have wanted to keep….being that it is traumatic enough having to go into a senior home for Alzheimer’s disease.

It is bad enough dad died not even a year ago and the Mike Bunker, who was made power of attorney with a piece of paper that is void simply because mom didn’t know what she was signing! I have no idea what my sister and BUNKER HAD IN MIND, BUT IT WASN’T MY MOTHER’S WISHES THEY WERE TRYING TO CARRY OUT. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAVE BEEN MY MOTHER’s friend, my mom’s advocate and cheerleader. Just as she was mine.

I want to make this right.

Many reports to Adult Protective Services have been made with no avail.

We have lousy laws pertaining to power of attorney in this country. If someone is alerting everyone that the person has malicious intent and they don’t listen, what the heck do I do to end this horrid charade?

I believe funds have been embezzled.
Mom never got one dime of her social security checks and instead he spent it on my dad..when he was alive, or cartons of cigarettes as my brother Bob did, instead of buying her things with his own money and acting the role of a good son who gave his TIME to his MOTHER. That’s what mom really wanted.
I need the name of a high powered attorney who can remove Mike Bunker from power of attorney proving mom was mentally incompetent when she signed it.

Also a Bogus family meeting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on August 19th 2012 was summoned by Mike Bunker who was given my dad’s credit cards willingly by dad himself. He gave him the power to be Hitler taking his so-called power to maniac standards. He must be stopped, especially since he sold my mom’s house and I have no idea what he did with the money.

If it plays out like all the personal possessions he threw in trash dumpsters that he thought nobody would ever tell or make him accountable for…he was wrong.

Help me hire a hard hitting, kick ass lawyer familiar with probate, elder abuse and criminal matters.

If any one can come up with how to make this right, let me know.

Droughts and Storms

A beautiful story of loss and one writer’s way of giving tribute to her dear father. I can relate to this story because my dad passed away from acute congestive heart failure last September 2012.

Let’s appreciate those we hold dearest in our lives.
