Mark, 

Howzit, braddah?  Kinda lost track of you over the years.  Joel, put me onto this site to try track you down.

I had an urgent question to ask you about sourcing White Truffle oil, discovered that nearly all of them use a synthetic flavoring agent.  Apparently essence of truffle oxidize rapidly once the bottle is opened to the air.

Then I discovered http://www.oregontruffleoil.com/node/25 in small, usable 2 oz bottles.  Looks like this solves my problem.  

Also discovered Black Moth Truffle infused Vodka, which also uses real truffles, but doesn't seem to be available through normal consumer channels, (corner liquor stores!).

I've got the same email address as I've had for 15 years.  Give me a shout.  I'm now in Fredericksburg.  Just in case you are now using your iPad2 in the kitchen!  HA!

Glad I discovered this re-connect with you, and hope you are enjoying vast success in this endeavor.

Aloha a hui hou, my friend!!!

Hi Mark:
As I go through the site it's nice to find other personal chefs. It can be isolating at times. How is business for you right now? A little slow here but I'm creative.
Take care and in touch if you'd like.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
