U. 1942 Sunday: Adolf Hitler orders the execution of all Allied commandoes captured by Axis troops. On the Eastern Front, the German Sixth Army is extremely close to cutting the last Soviet defenders to pieces as they begin encircling the Red October and Barricades Tractor Factories. This is the final push as the first flurries of snow begin to drop. Sludge ice continues coming down the Volga River. The Sixth Army’s offense continues grinding on, eating up bodies on both sides.

Back in the day, I was working at a hotel in Bakersfield, California, down on Union Avenue where I met Stinkbug. It was still nice at the time, and the area was still the original "restaurant row" of the city. Now, I am over 70 years old and work over in Santa Barbara, CA, as a food and beverage director for a fine-dining country club. The pictures you see here of me are facsimiles created by up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the famed Simone. Good work, dude, good work. Chef James “Jimmy” Hall writes from Santa Barbara, CA. Chef Jimmy Hall is a former member of the Peace and Freedom Party and now votes as an Independent.
