Tom Scharpling - As I write this I am listening to Tom host his weekly radio show, The Best Show on WFMU, which is bar none my favorite show of any kind.

Another Thing I'm Thankful For
Here is the second post in my semi annual series of things I am thankful for. This is an old story about my great grandmother, holidays and food.
