  • just 2 days ago I was talking to a friend in Cardiff, Wales. He told me of his work collegue who’s parents were Norwegian, but lived in Cardiff. They knew Roald Dhal who was born in Cardiff. So, as a fan of his, I am happy to know I am just 4 degrees from the writer. Also, just 5 degrees from Wili Wonka, and 6 from Johnny Depp and 7 from . . . Anyway, more seriously, good post, Chef Lana, but one heck of a coincidence and just a week apart.

    • Thank you, Bill! Yes it is and how exciting! Seems many greats hail from Wales. Roald Dahl has always been a personal favorite & Willy Wonka, well, is Willy Wonka! one of the best! Thanks so much for your wonderfully informative comment–as always!
