Hello....i'm a "not-so-newbie"

As you can see, I joined in '07, but this is only my second post.
I live in Lancaster county, PA, right in the middle of Amish country. I suppose my cooking style reflects the Pennsylvania Dutch influence in my life.

I'm 51 and married with a 29 yr. old son. We have chickens and guineas, a crazy Border Collie, and a [soon to be 21 yr.old] cat. I love photography and made my living as negative retoucher for several years, until the professional photographers all went digital! I do digital retouching and have done some work on cd covers. I sing with a bluegrass-gospel group. We have 3 cds out and one in the works.

That's about it. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome to the site. It is so great that you decided to jump in.

My family vacationed in Lancaster county many years ago. What I remember most was some of the most amazing food I have ever tasted.

You roll so many of my favorites up into one. I love photography as well as bluegrass and gospel music.

I look forward to chatting with you more.

welcome back here at DC ;o)
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Welcome back to DC. I'm a picture taker too.

Does anyone know the definition of "prolific poster"? It's NOT retoucher!

Nice to see you out and about!
