  1. I love your travel films on pbs, Rick! So glad to happen onto your blog today.

    Please keep up the good work. I’ve been supporting our local pbs channel in order to keep your shows coming.



  2. Hey, don’t knock it. I put parmesan cheese on my vermicelli and clams, too. Tastes pretty darn delicious!

    And I am Italian!

  3. It’s hilarious, and it’s a well-made video! This looks like something you’ll be showing at the annual January get-together in Edmonds.
