What's The Matter With Me? Podcast

I have multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia and I made this podcast to share what I’m going through.


In “I Drove,” getting reacquainted with driving, where did kale come from and borscht out the wazoo.

Iconic trio

At Breakfast is a great time to have Hoppin Hot Sauce.

Just like the iconic trios of Larry, Curly, and Moe, or black, white, and grey, or even the Roman numerals I, II and III, eggs, English muffins and Hoppin Hot Sauce form an unforgettable trio that’s sure to become a favorite in your kitchen.

I drove

I drove my van. First, around the block. Next, to the library, where I saw men with nowhere else to go walking around the library grounds in the rain an hour before opening. Finally, I drove to Oakland, up 580 and to Piedmont Avenue, to Cato’s Ale House. I photographed it from my parking space and texted it to my buddy, lamenting that it was too early for beer. He replied, “It’s never too early for beer.” It’s good to have friends. Shout out to Matt. Turning around, I drove back home.

Where did kale come from?

According to the “kale” page of Wikipedia\, Kale came to America in the 19th century from Croatia, brought by USDA botanist David Fairchild, who did not eat it, who detested cabbages of all sorts.


We have a freezer full of borscht. Chock full of borscht, we have borscht coming out the wazoo. My aunt and uncle were in town and we had them over for lunch. We ate borscht.
