Time - It really takes a lot of time to enjoy life. To really make dinner remarkable night after night it takes time to prepare and time to enjoy dinner. First I had to catch the striped bass. GP had to prepare and then we had to relax with a glass of wine as it cooked on the grill! .Marc & GP

One of my motivations is doing my best to genuinely help as many people as I can. The late great Zig Ziglar had a great quote to mirror this philosophy. Garrett

I recently took a Saturday afternoon to relax with my wife and a couple of friends at a Butterfly conservatory! Thousands of butterflies fluttering all around. Always good to take time with friends and try something new! Go adventure!
