Friday, September 07, 2012      11 comments

I really haven't had much to say lately; plus, spending less time on SP. But thought I'd check in to say hello. Things going fine. Still haven't bonded with Vitamix. I use it daily, but no huge gushing over it. On plateau. So what ... Read more

Yes, the Vitamix is here. I unboxed it yesterday afternoon, registered it online (guaranteed for 7 years!), and watched the DVD. Also thumbed through the nice cookbook that gives a ton of great ideas on all types of recipes. I do intend to ... Read more
