Simple advice. Profound impact. For as worldly an individual as Stewart Prestley Blake was, there was also a simplicity about him in how he approached both life and business. He would often repeat those words whenever he was asked what guidance he could offer a new generation of entrepreneurs. It had been rudimentary to the story of his personal success that he shared in his 2011 memoir, “A Friendly Life.”

S. Prestley Blake: the (Sometimes) Quiet Philanthropist

I found myself heading to the local Friendly’s over the holiday weekend and ordering myself a Jim Dandy. I’ve always loved Jim Dandies. They are the quintessential ice-cream sundae, a banana split on steroids, if you will, and ordering one always brings me back to my youth. It’s a blast from the past, and it remains unchanged from more than a half-century ago, in my case. Except … I used to be able to finish one in a single sitting. Now, although I could do so if I really, really felt like it, I consider it more prudent to take it over two nights — although you have to eat the banana the first night; once it freezes, you can’t do anything with it.
