George Martin, 79, is a Native American grandfather - he is of the Ojibwe Nation and lives in Hopkins, Michigan. In this episode George teaches Mo how to make a big pot of corn soup. Sound simple? Think again - the first step in the recipe is to light a fire without a match. George teaches Mo that handy skill, along with many beautiful traditions of his people. George also plays a mean game of mini golf.
You haven't met anyone quite like Michele Riggi! Michele and her husband Ron built a 20,000 square foot castle made of stone on the main drag of Saratoga Springs, New York.

Oh yeah, and her forty beloved dogs with names like Andy Panda, Coco Chanel, and Vicente Fox. Michele is also a great cook - she'll show Mo how to make a delectable eggplant parmigiana and something special for the dogs too.
