Okay. The last couple of months have been problematic. I spent seven or eight days without electric after the NorthEast SnowStorm from Hell. That's resolved, other than the piles of brush that someday the town may cart away, or not. Small stuff.

My father is rapidly failing. He has a superb cardiovascular system, but severe muscle weakening, lack of balance (and he falls a lot), and early stage dementia. Far enough along he cannot live independently, but he doesn't want to (or cannot) realize this. I've gone down twice in November to help with the situation. Large stuff.

Anyhow, I hope to be more involved in this team shortly, if only as something to take my mind periodically off of the drama unfolding points south of here.

We've had a couple new members here recently: Welcome aboard. Please make suggestions, and enjoy.

Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

I apologize for being absent recently. At any rate, I am back, and I hope we can grow back on track.

Welcome aboard! I just peaked in at your blog, looks great! I'll link to you from mine as soon as I get back over to mine (Cleaned out my fridge yesterday from the hurricane-induced power outage -- good opportunity to revamp what I buy!)

At the moment, if you can think of organizational ideas that will be great. I'll probably start making some changes tomorrow; I'm still playing catch-up from Irene in all aspects of my life.

A few days ago I got added on as a co-leader of this Team.

I wasn't able to get online until now, due to some meteorologic event known as Irene. Fortunately, she only took out my power, Internet and water, not my house or car or basement. I've dealt. I feel far luckier and indeed extremely grateful for this. With all the trees poised over my house, this could have turned out much differently.

Bloggers like to write. I volunteered to help here because it helps combine my mutual interests of: food, photography, writing.

My own blog is at http://goatsandgreens.wordpress.com. I haven't posted recently to it (reference Irene, and preps before she appeared around here which took up a lot of time), but I'll be back there as well.

What I'd like to see is suggestions for improving this team. I'm still in the process of scrubbing down my refrigerator from the prolonged outage, but I will be around.
