No no no no no. The Italian in me refuses to even picture anything called "crockpot lasagna". Just call it Italian Mash or something. I also refuse to eat pizza with pineapple. That is just plain wrong.

You're welcome. Jan and Ed are pretty amazing. Holden is as sweet as can be - but definitely with issues. The film crew asked him his three favorite places (brilliant idea since he was happy and relaxed at all places) and he listed our State Park, the beach, and my horses!!
