I believe this post is one of those in the category of "it goes without saying," but here goes, anyway. It goes without saying that whenever our DC friends have problems, illnesses, heavy stress and all, there are limitless quantities of sympathy and well-wishes from us readers which may not reach becoming an actual post. I think I speak for others that sympathy and best wishes are always there, spoken or not. That is not to say that specific words are unimportant -- we're grateful for those; many at DC are so eloquent, conveying our community thoughts so well. Some to thank especially are those sharing expertise and experience.

Sorry if I'm belaboring the point -- just felt moved to take note for this and related threads of the bountiful good will, spoken or unspoken, present at DC, as well as the value of sharing the burdens we face from time to time.

I this place.

"... many at DC are so eloquent, conveying our community thoughts so well." I think your post is an excellent example of this.

I just got back from grocery shoppig. It is bitter cold out. The grocery store is located in a very large flat open piece of land. So that nasty freezing cold wind blows across the parkng lot. I have just added ten years to my life. Because it wil take me that long to thaw out. I have to remember to take my reading glasses with me. Something new for me to learn.

I picked up some diced clams and clam juice for the clam cakes. And since I don'tlike bread, there is one bread product I do like. English muffins lightly toasted. So I will use one of them in the crab cakes. I also got a canister of French's Fried Onions. (Boy did that product shrink!) I figured to toss some in my mini FP and use them also in the crab cakes. Not going to happen. I am sitting here with a spoon and eating them like you would peanut butter out of the jar. The one thing I forgot to get was some sweet relish. I have a hankering for potato salad.

isn't life much more enjoyable when you have an appetite and can look forward to meals and certain special foods? (those you get a hankering for) it's so good to hear you talking about food with such obvious pleasure, addie.

I just finished setting up my DVD to record on Sunday night. Is anyone else as excited as I am to see the new season of Downton Abbey | Masterpiece | PBS ?

I can hardly wait!!!
