Your presence is missed over in the Thanksgiving Community. Making it a part of your daily sadhana could bring very good results.

And here I am, too, to comment that I just started drinking kombucha regularly this week, and I swear it's making me feel noticeably better. Do you make your own? It's so expensive to buy by the bottle, and I know kits are available - and once you have your scoby, it multiplies for additional use, yes? emoticon
