This!

As I posted on my facebook - some of the "food" talk he talked about went over my head (I am not a good cook, nor a food afficianado and don't really have an interest in cooking ), but his ability to use food to bring people together, his ability to use food to get people to open up, and his sense of humor and storytelling, is something I truly enjoyed. I traveled the world vicariously through him. He was my late Sunday night guilty pleasure.

RIP, Tony.

As a side note, the past few episodes I recall saying to myself that he looked awfully gaunt. I truly thought that he was battling an illness, but didn't even cross my mind about it being mental illness.

The posts that get me are the ones that tell a long sad story about why they deserve to win because they have suffered so.
Guess what, we all have our sad sad stories, some people just don't care to share them on social media to win a prize.
