Back from Chicago

Sure it would have been great to win and sure it’s a cliche to say that winning isn’t everything, that it’s an honor to be nominated, but you know what?  It really is an honor to be nominated by your peers and it really is pretty swell to be surrounded by friends and colleagues who are rooting for you.

Many, many thanks to everyone who crossed their fingers for me.  Do you think you could continue to keep them crossed until the Beard Awards roll around?
