I used to belong to a food forum that seven of us formed from the old food network forum. Therewere more of us, but some just slowly faded away. One of them is a member of DC. We got together with some others from the group. I can tell you she knows her food and is a lovely person. I really enjoyed the time I spent with her. She even came to the Pizza Party I had in my home for a group of us. I really enjoyed her company.
Other than her, I have met about five or six others. I have visited a couple of them more than once in their home. Every time I have taken a trip I end up making that chocolate cake on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. In fact one of the girls flew me out to California to make the cake for her husband's birthday. I have flown twice to Atlanta twice to make it. There is something magical about that cake. And every Saturday, thegirl in Atlanta calls me and we talk for sometimes more than two hours solving all the problems of the world.
The girl from California, came to Boston for the weekend. I took her and a couple of others on The Freedom Trail. Thy got to board the Constitution (Old Ironsides) climb the steps to the Bunker Hill Monument, Paul Revere House and grave, Mother goose's grave, etc. and that night we all went to the Union Oyster House where JFK used to read his Sunday papers. We were so loud and raucous, I am surprised they didn't throw us out. Every where we went I would point out some historical event that happened at certain spots. They were surprised at just how much of Boston History I knew. I am a Bostonian through and through.
Right now I don't feel safe travelling alone anymore. But I think I might have one more trip in me. I would love to go back to Atlanta. But right now she has a lot goinig on and it would be a bad time to plan a visit.
