We've been loving our nice warm fireplace though. Always look forward to that in the winter time! <BR> <BR> I've been slowly figuring out the food tracker on here and really like the grouping and favorites areas. Very helpful. Thanks Mom for telling me about those! <BR> <BR> I haven't used it before because I "just didn't have time", however now that I am using it I'm actually very surprised at how easy it's getting.
