This Week

This week 02-03-15 “Pork and Pearls” In 2008 we had "Mack's French Laundry hoity toity super fancy dinner", 50 people having dinner, 14 courses, 28 people in the kitchen.

This week 01-13-15 The Easy way out I was talking to a friend of mine last week about getting people to be their best.
