    I'm going to get to know him a little and then give him the "Cowboy up" speech!! LOL

    Thanks in advance,

    They have a young sous chef at the above restaurant that we frequent A LOT! It's right across the road behind us so we roll over. We will be there New Year's Eve with 4 friends. Yummm The new guy was shot on his way home from the night shift at Wendy's where he used to work... So not much experience before this. He's an immigrant from central American and fairly new here. He was shot so the idiot could grab his motorbike (not motorcycle). If he wishes to come down for one of the described cooking classes a meet could probably be arranged. Until then I don't think Erik would mind you emailing him about his newest sous chef. I'm not sure if the young man has his own computer yet. Our local delegate from the Maryland General Assembly has taken an interest in this hard working guy and I made sure the sidewalk he wheels to work on is now free of a nasty pothole. Still working on a tree that bashes anyone in the head on the sidewalk on the main route to the restaurant and a few minor annoyances like prompt snow removal.... I plan on that being my test restaurant when I get a dog.

    So, yes, if his hands work he can be a chef! Wish mine did. I miss all the holiday cooking stuff that everyone else hates.
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Thanks for all of the responses!! I think Pascals story will really inspire him. He's going to have to find a culinary school that is totally accessible and accommodating to his needs.

    I can cook just fine (I'm not saying that it tastes good ;-) at a T-2 level, but I have no idea what goes on behind the closed doors of a professional kitchen. I don't want to feed him ANY information that he will learn to be false later. He's had enough disappointment, he doesn't need any more!

    I'm looking forward to seeing him tomorrow and forwarding the info that all of you have provided. I hope that he's tried to ween himself from that vent!!!

    Happy Holidays,
    Dave

    Jimmy is a walking quad. On his feet all day, I don't know how he does it.
