These slogans appear on The Motley Fool Home Page:

The Motley Fool
To Educate, Amuse & Enrich

The Fool Community
Good Friends • Smart People



Over the years, I've gained a lot from posts volunteered by community members on TMF's discussion boards – posts on investments, home, auto, computer technology, legal matters, personal relationships – In all sincerity, I've gained more here than I gained in college graduating cum laude from the Dean's College of the university where I studied.

In the context of the community's objectives of educating, amusing and enrichment, it is fitting to nominate a person for the Feste Award who contributes in such a fashion. IMO, the community is fortunate to have professionals who freely and openly contribute and share their expertise. Chezjohn, also affectionately known as Fat Johnny, is such a professional.

If you enjoy fine dining (and great recipes and howtos), you won't have to look for – A few examples of Chezjohn's Food Porn:

Quiche and Reuben

Fat Johnny's Chocolate Chipotle' Raspberry Sheet Cake

Fat Johnny's Kicked-Up Mocha Cappuccino Banana Mousse
and Wiley's Butterscotch Pie/Pudding/Mousse
- the later stolen, I thunk
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=23566213

Many of his recipes, insightful food preparation instructions, not to mention videos and tall tales have been captured by Bill Ford at his site dedicated to Bar-B-Que and other culinary experiences and linked from the FAQ on TMF's BBQ board.

I think Fat Johnny Chezjohn would wear TMF's Feste Award very well.

It's a dern shame that more Fools don't know who ChezJohn is and what he does for people. He does so much more than we might be able to ever tell about because he doesn't always tell us everything about everything he does.

We have had the pleasure of helping him "get 'er done" in the past because we saw what he was doing and he asked us for our help, such as this Foolish Elves - Acts of Kindness project from 2002 that bookgrrl got started;

2002 SANTA PROJECT INFO

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18264088&sort=whole

There were LOTS of Fools offering to help in anyway they could and then ChezJohn jumped in and said, "Hi bookgrrl ~ God Bless You for organizing this project, and Thanks for letting me be part of it."

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18273770

Y'all jus' gots to read his whole post to see the effort he put into this "project" to help out!!

Then ChezJohn offers an update on what he's been doing to "get 'er done" and...Well, y'all jus' gots to read this post/thread as well;

Update on the bookgrrl santa project

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18275754&sort=whole

And then bookgrrl comes back with a special post to the BBQ Fools, TO THE BBQ ELVES

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18333900&sort=whole

And tells us about the 2002 ELVES PROJECT RESULTS

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18333858

Along with 3blackdogs post of The Final Story on the Santa Project

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18319705&sort=whole

That is just ONE "story" of what ChezJohn has done over the years to help people in any way he can.

Here's another "simple" example of ChezJohn helping a coupla BBQ Fools get an autographed book, and his "frettin' over" the author's slow response in fulfilling his promise;

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=24510967

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=24673153&sort=whole

ChezJohn also participates in several different forums on the Internet, he has helped numerous people and groups raise monies for various causes, and he even helped establish an award program for Others who have helped people/groups in various ways.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=24613137&sort=whole#24613864

I know most of these posts/threads weren't from 2006, but they just go to show how much ChezJohn has done over the years to "help" all of us Fools and so many Others in many different ways!! And, hopefully, it also shows why ChezJohn deserves to win the TMF Feste Award!!

A true testament....mrbear

I realize this post is from today, but this is just how ChezJohn operates...He never stops and never says no when asked to help out regardless of how big or small the request.
