It's Thanksgiving

Listen to how Dick spends Thanksgiving every year, now and when he was young, and what his favourite desserts are.

Sara Fowler

Jason Arber says Sara Fowler does not have a Wikipedia entry and she should have one.  Everyone is emailing Dick this NYT article about her getting married.  She went to Russia with her husband Brian Fiedman who worked for Associated Press, but Dick has lost contact with her for the last 3 years.

Not just a pretty face

Dick and Sara did some sound effects for a company called Valentino.  They made a few hundred dollars.  Dick made a bit more by taking them on to his boat and recording more sound effects.  So Dick is not just a pretty face after all.
