First I want to say I hope all of you out there stay safe, we will get through this. Do exactly what the scientists are telling us to do which means staying , do not go to places were there are groups of people, wash your hands.
Now for updates:
I recently was promoted to a chef at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Warren, MI, bitterly on Friday the 13th I received my chefs coat and the next morning our governor used an executive action to close all restaurants or provide carry out only. The center is not a place that carryout makes sense so I am unemployed for a while.
I have been home since that day. I unfortunately am one of those citizens with underlying conditions. In 2011 I came home from Morocco with the bird flu, that took nearly 4 years to get over and it left me with permanent lung damage. On top of that I have MS which means my immune system is very compromised. In an effort to work from home for the next few months I acquired a 3D printer which will be arriving in a few days. I spent nearly 25 years in the rapid prototyping (3D printing) industry and have the knowledge and means to make this work. I will be offering prototype services after I get the machine up and running.
I'm not done cooking and fully expect to get back to the center when this thing is over. And to that end I am working on a cook book called "Guy Food" which has simple but flavorful recipes.
I have also started to paint again which after a several year hiatus is rather enjoyable. The current new series is large (34" x 48") of the cover-19 virus and others. It turns out when you look at these viruses they are quite beautiful and abstract in nature. Images coming soon.
I hope all of you stay safe.
