Tell us an interesting fact, hobby or story.

I've recently taken up cooking fairly seriously because a.) I enjoy eating of course b.) I have two hungry boys to feed now and c.) it's been a great way to experience learning a new skill with a "beginner's mindset" so I can relate to my guitar students as they are learning.
