My sincere wishes for better health in 2014 Fi!
That is a wonderful quote, Thanks SB. I'll print that out and hang it at work.

We're menu planning. Mrs D is all excited that the German deli here go a new shipment of sauce mixes in from Germany. I like it when she's back in the cooking mood.

That's a handy way to menu plan. Read the directions on the packet, buy what you need.

Thanks for all the support!
PF As The saying goes, you can't keep a good woman down. I pray that your recovery will be swift and complete. All the best. JoAnn
