    • Thanks … I’m currently sitting on a train that will take me to a plane that will take me to another plane that will take me to yet another plane that will get me home. Hope you and yours have a great Christmas season as well.

  1. That is an awesome link indeed (Still Tasty)! I’ve bookmarked it and will have to spend some time there during the holidays.

    Have I told you about the book I just read, Garbology (E.Humes)? Another great read that I checked out from the library (twice, in fact, ’cause I read that slowly). It’s a Pulitzer winner. You’ll get much out of it!

    Hey, I hope you get a break with Bonnie Lee for Christmas and New Year. You’ve been travelling a lot it seems. Enjoy the holidays!

    • Yeah, was happy to find that site … and will definitely be bringing Garbology with me on my next trip, which is thankfully a few weeks away. And when I’m here, I work at home, so we get to spend lots of time together.

      Happiest of holidays to you and the dirt ‘n kids clan…
