A Reintroduction

I have been part of this forum for several years but I feel like a new member since I have not been actively participating in the last two years. It took me that long to reacquaint myself with the land I had left 34 years ago. After two years of living in Italy I finally feel like I belong here. I apologize for this long silence. You have been a good supporting team. I will do the best I can to be of help. Franca Facchetti.

I agree, welcome back. Throw us all your questions, you know, like, why am I here, what's the meaning of life, where am I going? Of course you have to give us good recipes and discussion as well. And yes, I'm still making odd foods and experimenting.

Again, good to see you.

Thanks. That is very useful. I came across another acronym that does not appear on the list: IMO. Any clue?
