Also Claudia, what I do is after I have finished making a post, I click on "New Posts" in the blue bar at the top. That way I stay current with the conversations. If you look to the top right of the page, you will also see "Quick Links". In that drop-down menu, you will see "Today's posts", which is often longer than "New Posts" if you are a frequent visitor to DC.
Good luck. Everyone here is very helpful IMO.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...
