Hey, Love your podcasts!

I just have one thing real quick…the special Olympics and the para Olympics are not the same.

In the special Olympics the folks sometimes have mental handicaps. In the Para Olympics the participants are not mentally handicapped. This year many of the para Olympians are military members who have been injured in Iraq or Afghanistan and lost limbs. Many para Olympians were born without limbs or lost them in accidents. Or are blind or deaf…but otherwise “normal”.

Glad you two are back! Now we have new German wines to try.
Whitney, thanks again for the wonderful wine pairing at T. and you are very kind to give us a shout-out. Look forward to seeing you again around LA.

That mixologist video was great. I do kind of want some of those ice cubes now though for an over-sized glass or something. For laughs that is.
