I Noticed This

I was looking around here and I was touched by certain posts about members who have passed. You really care and that is nice. I feel I have found some place that is more than a cooking site which I was looking for. This seems like a family. I sure hope I can be a part of it.

Erin, you have noticed the "heart" of this community. I don't have the words to describe how this family enveloped me when my husband, Buck, died suddenly and unexpectedly in June. There is more love and compassion here than you would ever imagine...and it's genuine. Stick around. This is the premier place on the Internet.

I can not even begin to tell you how much more this site is to all of us!! We are definately a family, there for each other in all the good and hard times of each others lives (that also happen to all love cooking and eating! ) and we always have room for more family members, so I hope you feel at home here!
Welcome again, and hope you enjoy!

well, buck was a member here (we'd kill for our own), and a very special, warm hearted guy.

i'm not so sure it applies to everyone.




he hee.



remember, some people bring joy when they arrive; others, when they leave.

and,

fish, like houseguests, begin to stink after a few days.
