For all your many welcoming messages - thanks! I'll post a few of my Julia memories from the sixties when everything was black and white TV, screens were little and talent was supreme.

Thank you all for your gracious welcomes letting me know I'm not the only male aboard. I want to share a Julia moment with you. I was a TV intern who didn't know very much. Actually, although very nice, the TV crew I'm sure, thought we were there to baby sit wet behind the ears college students. Julia and her husband came to the set and quickly spotted a newbee as we were known then. She kidded the three of us, told us to be aware that when she chopped the big monk fish for her menue that day that fins would fly - "look out" she warned. Her husband Paul, asked me to hold the cue sheets for him so he could get some photos for a story in the Globe. He put his hand on my shoulder and said "you are about to see a master:.
I did. She did wack that monk fish, the fins did fly, we had a camera man underneath the main set and he was covered with fish entrails laughing all the time.
Julia fed us all after the show with all the "vitles" as she called them she cooked on the show . What food!!!! What made her food so great was the love she put into the preparation and the respect she had for hewr profession.
TV in the late sixties was an adventure. Generally what you saw was what really happened - no editing out. But unlike the legends there were few mistakes. The lady could really cook and was, as her husband said, "A master!" Perhaps you have seen that B&W show with the giant monk fish. I'll never forget it. I worked five more shows with Julia and Paul. Each one was a pleasure both food wise and human wise.
