Seems like it has been years but been real busy with life and new chapter in my life!After 18 years of working hard at the family buisness we decided it was time to let got and sell it off! Soon after the decision mom was diagnosed with cancer . Well it is all done now and at my new job starting a new life and seems like it is goiong to be a good one!Still in sales and management but for someone else and it sure take allot of pressure of the shoulders so sleeping way better at night.And mom well she is a strong lady and Dr said she is a tuff one and in perfect health,so now she is doing some radiation as prevetive mesures but all is bright in her futur!! Thank god!
Looking forward to start posting again and cooking more often.Plus since i have been gone many new members as i can see and i have been blessed oneced again with another egg to add to my collection......of course had to get me a mini to add to my small and 2 larges! Liking it allot and thinking maybe i will sell the small and stick with the 2 larges and the mini! Oh well enough of this chit chat, it feels great to be back and looking forward to post!!

  • Welcome back Mike.

    I've been out of touch for a while too - home renovations. Nothing like you've been through I'm sure.

    I hope you enjoy your new job - less pressure than running your own business.

    Wishing your family and mother the strength to fight cancer!
