    Enjoyed the program today. Especially the music. “All of Me” was written in 1931 by Gerald Marks and Seymour Simons and has been sung by everyone from Belle Baker (who first recorded it) to Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Michael Buble, and even a punk rock version by NFOX (whoever that is!). AND my all-time favorite singer, my dad! The Untouchables did a bang-up job of it on your podcast. Also laughed and laughed at Mark’s “blackberry drama.” For a minute I thought he was going to give us a SERIOUS gourmet review. He has such a knack for being a side-kick. Well, since I have a jar of Chinese five Spice in the cupboard I’ve never opened, guess I’ll have to get it out and try it now. Thanks for the inspiration! And keep up the good work!

      Wow, thanks for all of the info about “All of Me”, that’s really cool to know. It’s also cool that your dad was a singer. I only sing to the cat (who allows it because saucers of milk are involved), and I think I get that from *my* dad. Your Mark mention made his day. He’s really starting to get into being my podcast helper and *I* think he steals the show, and his humor is really coming out. I also like Mark’s announcer voice. Thanks again for listening and for taking the time to comment. Maybe you and his Lordship would like to do a What’s Tasty segment? Can be healthy as TWM and I need to go strictly on the fitness wagon once home from Vegas. Wonder why this reply is so long? Once done must go clean house 🙂
