Newbie on the east coast

Hello everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself. Love to cook, but unfortunately not very proficient. I'm retired (sort of) but my wife works and to take some of the burden from her, I want to learn to be more kitchen savy. Also, please excuse my English as some grammar and symantics are still difficult for me. Italian born to a large family.....pretty sad that I don't know how to cook. Hoping to pick up some pointers from the experienced people here and who knows; perhaps I'll even be able to contribute once in a while.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Nice to see I'm not the only guy in here and certainly not the only grammar challenged. Although I studied English in school since birth, I did not begin speaking "American English" until I moved to the U.S. about 7 years ago. English is my 3rd language but with some practice writing and speaking, I hope to become more proficient. Just like my cooking.

Yes, my login name is an indicator of my interests. I am very active with animal rescue and adoption. Dogs, cats and horses mostly. We have a ranch where we board many horses and own some ourselves. Just love animals.

Again, thank you everyone for the warm welcome and I will try not to bombard you all with my questions.

140 lbs?! That's more than huge for a RR, or is there another lion dog that I don't know about?

I'm going to try to post a photo of my furry friends if I can figure out how. Three German Shepherds, 27 horses, and a cantankerous barn cat share my place. If the photo of the doggies doesn't come through I'll try to figure out another way to post it. I love animals.
