I have 3 more nights of work until I go on vacation for a week. I pick up my new puppy this Sunday at 4:30 in the afternoon. I may not be around a lot for a bit until I work with the puppy.

Welcome! yes, we're from all around and it is great. A very cosmopolitan web site. and not just about food. I even had someone (thank you Princess) answer a medical question I'd spent the day calling every medical source I knew of locally for my mom, who lives across the country from me. Relieved her, but I was so stressed out that I walked in my sleep that night and broke my hip!

It's a coal mining county & I am not sure but I believe it may be one of the poorest counties in the state. I moved here from Berks county in 1997. Reading is the largest city in Berks & has a high crime rate. I carry 2 handguns if I have to enter that city now, it's that bad. I was born there & our family moved in 1977 after being robbed 4 times in 8 years.

if you get to come to this state again, go to a store & ask for Lebanon bologna at the deli. It's soooooo good.
It was actually a cake - Gob Cake. Chocolate, with a lot of marshmallow fluff. The sandwich we had was later, in Pittsburgh. It was a pastrami sandwich stuffed with french fries. Very weird, but oddly good. Since we are trying not to eat much starch anymore, that one would definitely be off limits!

Thanks for the information about your area.

On my side of the state our big favorite cake is a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing.

I am a beginner at the cruising world. We took 2 cruises last year. One in March and the other one over Christmas. We were suppose to go on the Monsters of Rock cruise this year back in March but 3 weeks before the cruise we had to put our beloved dog, Boomer, to sleep. His little body was full of cancer and his sister was never alone before. They were from the same litter and they were/are puppy mill dogs so Smokey took it so hard that there was no way we could leave her. She was so sad and all she did was mope around crying.

We were going to do that cruise and another one this Christmas again but since we rescued a one year old cocker/dachshund, Penny, and we are getting an 8 week 3 day old male cocker this Sunday we cancelled all cruises for this year so we can work on training the new crew.

We are flying to Bermuda this summer though. We had to use the flight tickets or we would have lost our money. We hired a profession dog sitter this time since we are going to have a young puppy. We plan on camping a lot though. Smokey loves camping.

Maybe we can get back to cruising next year.
