I was reminiscing about the years between graduating from high school and when I got married (and had to settle down and become a responsible adult). I suddenly realized that some of the people I was close to are no longer alive.

I decided to try to track down as many of my closest friends (male and female) as I could, and reach out to them. It’s been fun reconnected with those who’ve responded.

It was surprising though that two of the people I was closest to gave me the cold shoulder.  It’s been 40 years and people change, I guess.

Old Friends?

If you knew me in my 20’s you may have known me as Barney Barnhart instead of Dave Barnhart.


One of the reasons I created this blog was to make it easier for old friends to identify me and to reach out to me. If you are one then do not hesitate to send me an email.

Tuesday’s cooking class was a blast. We learned out Mother Sauces, and made a few of those and others. I was told that my Stroganoff sauce was better than the chef’s!

I am blessed that there is a culinary school here in Phoenix that does evening courses for us ‘enthusiastic mmateurs’

I’m in culinary school one night a week for 6 months here in Phoenix, AZ. I’m doing this not to become a professional chef, I just want to improve my skills. Tonight we learn about causes.
