That's Andy in the picture with President Biden.  He's one of the most amazing chefs I've ever known, and brother of another amazing chef, Rob.

Still haven't heard from M3, and I'm beyond concerned.  Decided to check in with Rob & Melissa to calm my nerves.

Sending love, always!

    Listen, some of my best advice here; if you haven't already, buy your spouse a heated toilet seat.  Trust me on this, best gift ever...she thanks me every, single day!
