Thank you for all the well wishes over the past couple days. It warms my heart to know how many lovely, caring people there are in the world. I think foodies are a special breed of caring people. I have my blog enabled so that every comment comes into my inbox. They are most often the first emails I read. I am like a little kid getting presents. Your comments are very much appreciated by me and I want to thank you.
