Good luck, Rock!

With all your experience, you might want to check into teaching. A lot of schools are looking for "non-traditional" (no teaching degree) instructors for HS and community college culinary arts and other food related courses.

I'm getting ready to amputate my nose. Went to work, lasted 2 hours, then came home. This cold is kicking my behind.

Neo Citron and gin. Sounds a bit extreme, but it works....and if it doesn't, you won't care...

Had to look it up (the NeoCitran, not the gin). It's the Canadian version of Theraflu. Thanks for the recipe!

I was just kidding. I don't recomend mixing alcohol and Thera Flu. But, I'm sure you knew that.

Therer is always a need for any health workers. No matter what field they are in. Good luck.

so sorry to hear you're under the weather dawglover...get well soon! you probably feel like this guy but if you try real hard....and I'll clap my hands three times for you....in no time at all you'll be

I'm packing for our 2-week vaca in Mexico (Isla Mujeres). Never been there, never wanted to travel in January, but son is getting married in a 'destination wedding'.

My idea of a January holiday is 3 nights in a local B&B which has a hot tub, great food, outdoor rink. (did that last year in Kingston, Ontario).

Thanks, Soma! You are gonna love Isla Mujeres! I would happily sacrifice and take your place for you! We just got back from Cozumel. Eat, drink, and be merry! There's a place on Isla that specializes in lobster pizza, can't remember which. Load up on the wonderful fresh seafood!

You will have to go back during Whale Shark and Manta Ray season (summer). Dolphins should be plentiful now. Have fun with the golf carts, and do get underwater!

I am so excited for you! We expect a full trip report!

Seems like there's a cold going around kicking a lot of peoples' butts.
Get better, Dawg.

I took a semi day off and drove around today. Beautiful day with the sun shining and the ice melting off the roads.

Thanks, Pac. Half my office is sick today, along with a bunch of my teachers.
