Just sitting here wondering what the loud bang noise was either on the side of our house or on the roof. Maybe it is just the cold temperatures. It is 2 above zero. Brrrr.

Maybe it was accumulated snow falling off the roof.

No, it sounded more like something hit the house. We looked outside and there is no one around. I'll look around tomorrow in the daylight and see if there is anything laying around. It is strange, because it was really loud.

If you live in a small town and complain you may end up with more snow in your driveway than you ever thought possible!

That wouldn't surprise me here, AB. But I fight snow with snow. Remember my HD mailbox?

My guess is zombies. Zombies attacked your house, Joann.

Zombies are sneaky buggers. Contrary to popular belief, they really can swim.

Krispy Kreme donuts were one of the biggest disappointments of my life.

Mine too. Dunkin Donuts are much better.

As you are also!

It's very interesting here. I can see the passion for cooking and things around the home, and then for children and grandchildren, and many other things. If I were to choose one simple word to describe this website and its members and leaders, it would be just that: passion.

We laugh, we cry, we share, we worry, we fuss, and we talk. This is a family, passionate about everything of the family, centered around cooking and providing good meals for our families.

And when the worst of the worst happens, such as our recent loss of dear Kadesma, we circle the wagons, so to speak. Everyone supports everyone else while also letting their feelings be known. Kadesma's family has our love and our support, which is only the pressing of a power button away.

I know we aren't allowed to discuss PMs, but I've got to say this also: Katie showed me the thread in which she lost her beloved Buck. The wagons were circled again, and so very many of you rallied around her. She needed you all, and you were there.

So, tonight I suppose, the answer to what I am doing now is thinking of this wonderful website, and I feel so blessed to have found it.

With love,
~Cat
