Thats awesome Vicki! Please tell him congrats from all of us. What degree did he receive and what type of work is he hoping to go into?

Since it'll be June when the party occurs......do you want to be standing over a grill or would you rather use your oven and stove indoors with the air conditioning on????? That'll help us in giving you some ideas.

Thanks Sizz- we're probably going to cater all the entrees- I'm just going to do appys and desserts.I like to enjoy these celebration things and cooking for 70 people I've learned takes the fun out of it.
Also thank you all for your kind wishes- the ceremony had to be held inside because of the weather but, it was still very nice.Dennis now has a bachelor's in natural sciences with a concentration in physics and a minor in infinite mathematics-whatever the heck that is!!! He will be going for his master's in education and wants to teach physics.-Don't know where this kid came from!!!!!!

congratulations to Dennis! Well done!
Mum can be proud of her son - even if he wants to go for physics ;o)
