Kind of you Gunther but I would like to go to your kitchen and see what 
you do there.
Too bad we are a little far apart, our Rock in Lansing, you in Dallas 
and in Santiago, Chile right now.

    Just flipped the wrong button deleting that last SCA message. 
Probably wise as I have comments so I am more limited saying I do not 
agree with that because I agree with Gunther said we have some of the 
'greatest minds in historical cooking'. Thanks buddy! Our gourmet cook 
in our home when here is our son who broke down last night for the first 
time being a second year student at Wharton Business School working on 
his MA. At 5 am he called he us and cried because of  classes from 9-5 
and homework until 3 am, student loans and a lot more tension. We were 
so honored he did that.
    We hugged him over the phone and emailed him today while he was in 
class to receive our love when he got home.
    We are doubting tonight whether to send him this message or not:
poor kid who never complains. You know we have it so much easier being 
parents of 20 year olds, younger ladies and gentleman, who need us so 
much but when they cry for our love, we cry too!
    So 'my little rock',  Mr. Rocas, we will love you too if you want to 
love us.
