Ok if we're talking brushes w/ fame......
I met Mark Slaughter once (band named Slaughter, sang Fly to the Angels). Also Bret Michaels of Poison, Jon Bon Jovi (still gonna marry him).
Ok sorry I was in my teens in the 80's I fell for long haired rockers, explaining my obsession with my husband at the time.... (he's since then shaved off all his thinning pretty feathered rocker hair)
I also met Mike Modano (hockey) when the Dallas Stars were the MN North Stars.

Does that not cause a hygiene issue when cooking?

People Iv'e seen Eliout Gould, people I have actually talked to John Ritter, Jane Fonda, Ted turner he owns the ranch I live on. Had dinner at the same table with Steve Miller at the ranch. Cooked for 5 days for George Straight at the little high mountain lodge here on the ranch. Went on a float trip in Moab and Rachel Ward ( The Thorn Birds) was also on the raft. Met Larry King who was with Ted Turner on the Ranch. There have been a few celebrities that have come here but I never go out of my way to see them so I missed Val Kilmer, Tom Selleck I know theres more I met and could have seen but didn't but I can't remember right now. Oh almost forgot I cooked a few meals for Donald Trump Jr. at the ranch I worked at in Texas he adored my Hollandaise Sauce I made for brunch came back for seconds

oh, I just remembered...... I was friends with the sister-in-law of Michael Nesmith (the guy in The Monkees who wore the knit hat and hated it) when we were in 5th grade in 1965------she was a hoot---called our other friend "Patty Fatty" and she was "Joan Bone" cause she was super skinny, boy-crazy and always in trouble with our crabby teacher.........at the time Mike was a struggling musician and had not hit fame yet..........her sister and Mike later divorced as if that's any earth-shaking news!

Wow, jg! Did you get any autographs or was that not the cool thing to do? If you get a chance could you send or post you Hollandaise sauce? We love it on broccoli and asparagus and the K. go nuts over it (I use a package mix---I know ugggh!)

Nope no autographs I'm not into that in fact if I see someone famous I just give them their space they get enough people bugging them. As far as the Hollandaise goes you first have to learn how to make it from scratch it's a little tricky second my sauce is not a true Hollandais sauce but soo good good because I add a tiny bit of garlic powder and a few drops of tabasco and I use some Christian Brothers Brandy it's so good I would like to fill a bathtub and get in with a straw.

I don't care if it's authentic or not.......if you're ready to climb into a tub with a straw then I've got my straw ready and waiting to join you!!! Thanks!!
