Meanwhile, I would like to recommend the following TED talk. No matter which side of the fence you may have stood during this recent campaign this brief talk may explain how the entire spectrum of thinking – liberal to conservative – is critical for our long term success as a civilized nation and world.

  2. Kelli – yes, sharing a recipe in this way is a bit unconventional but I appreciate it. Other readers should know this is the result of an exchange between us over on Thank you Kelli. I’ll put this on my list to try.
