Trump commuted his sentence to time served which drove the insane leftists berserk.  Meanwhile, the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue says he won’t back down upon having been at the White House the day prior and complimented the president on a job well done.  Good for you!

We found a classic DVD, a blast from the past, by Pink Floyd that originally came out on January 04, 2005, entitled, “The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story.”  If you have an unquenched thirst for new Floyd music as well as films, you need to seek this one out as it’s only around $18.  We do believe you will find it intoxicatingly interesting which is why we encourage everyone to visit or wherever else it is you do and check it out.  We think it’s a worthy addition to any collection of nothing but the best in psychedelic rock music.  Pick it up and enjoy.  We thank you.

This would have been my photo, I, your host, back in the 1980's when I was the Executive Chef at a country club in the Napa Valley but for security purposes, we have scaled some of our personal info back so now, you get a caricature of me done by up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone. Nice job, Simone! However, I spent many years working in professional Food Service, having begun as a young boy working for my father in his restaurant over on the coast in Pismo Beach. Food Service is in my blood and it's something I still do actively every day in my late eighties in Washington State. Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes from Mukilteo, Washington.
