Hi List,
I had to laugh when I read this:

Tierra Nueva has one or two finger-lickers as well.  We also have a cook
who cuts up raw chicken on our butcher block island.  Multiple requests
to please not do it, use the special cutting board surface instead, have
not changed her behavior.  I don't sign up for her meals, and I make a
stealth run after dinner when the clean up crew is finished to see if
they bleached the butcher block.  If not, I spray it.  Just for my
personal gratification.
