Ed has previously told Oprah that his favorite comfort food is ‘bangers and mash’.

“It’s basically real sausages – not boiled pink hot dogs – with mashed potatoes and onion gravy. Whenever I go home, my mom makes it for me. If she thinks I haven’t been eating, she’ll put 15 sausages in the dish instead of the 3 it calls for”.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
