Thanks for your kind comments. Yes, I am most certainly counting down the days until summer (17 school days, only 14 instructional). I've had a fabulous year, but am ready to garden full-time.
I've also lost on the Atkins (or a variation called the Protein Power Plan). I have no problem with it other than the lack of fruit initially. Can't live without it! Anyway, best of luck to you on the Dukan, and I hope we'll be seeing you around here more. You were missed!
