What a lovely site, so full of kindred spirits. I'm happy to join in! Some of my greatest pleasures are searching for cookbooks, running around with my husband and friends in our '29 roadster, trying a new recipe, planning our next meal or our annual Christmas party. My newest project (errr, challenge) is starting a vegetable / fruit garden this Fall in the desert southwest. My name is Cindy and I'm 59, collect cookbooks and have an online cookbook shop on a popular auction site. I hope to make some new friends, plan to learn a lot and hope to be able to add a little too to the forum. Thank you for including me.
