I have learned so much on this site in my short time here.  Now to see the heart behind the people that are contributors is simply humbling... My congrats to Paige on her accomplishments and to Walter on his steadfast mentoring.  May I some day make a pizza half as good as Paige does everyday!

thanks!  Come down and visit us someday.  We will teach you what we know.  Walter

here is a video of Paige making pies (very nervous in front of the camera).  those pictures I posted are at her job at Denison.  She has stopped making pizza there and switched to food prep.  She didn't like the way they do their pizza.  Last week she started hand tossing.  She has been afraid to drop them on the floor.  I finally got her over that.  The picture quality does not do justice to the pies and I have switched to a different pepperoni - Pavone small, curling type, with a bit of spice to it.

Things continue to unfold in ways I never expected.  Last week while delivering cookies we make for a bookstore owner, who sells them at her shop and online, I ran into a longtime home pizza maker.  We hit it off and he came in today for a pie.  I showed him around and one thing led to another.  He is a filmaker and wants to make a documentary on our program. In exchange I am going to teach him how to make pizzas.   This is exciting because he has a complete studio of top end gear for film and we can make a quality film.  Up till now it has been all home camera stuff.  My dream would be for this generate some excitement and air at independent film festivals and show the world that disabled people can do things beyond our wildest expectations and other programs would pop up that got these people working instead of rotting on the vine all their lives. 
Also a premier pizza authority/pizza maker and writer has contacted me about doing a story on us in a very respected publication.   I couldn't believe this one with our little old shop in podunk OH where little ceasars rules.    I feel so blessed to have made it to this point.  I feel we are poised on really opening some minds on what can be done with the disabled population.  I pray I can keep my ego out of it all and just shed tears of joy and thanks.  Thanks to everyone here.  You all are more important to me than you ever will realize.  I live in isolation here with artisan breads/pizza.  This outlet has really helped me continue each day.  Walter

Such great news Walter.  You are a perfect example of someone who has put himself out there at risk in order to do something worthwhile.  You are an authentic person and of course you and your students would be a great subject tor a documentary.  Go get em!
