    Just to say that I hope you are simply away for a while. Haven't seen you, and wish all good things for you! Love, Becky

    If I want to reply to a comment you made on my page, do I need to come here in order for you to see it? That seems a bit bulky.

    I've already learned a little something about my eating, didn't get close to enough protein yesterday (love my carbs). That surprised me.

    Hi Debby. I couldn't find you in the search, probably wasn't doing something right. I'm glad you found me. I'm really hoping SP helps me get a handle on my weight.

    Parallel daffodil universes! I just noticed that the ones I planted nearly 10 years ago are up to beat the band this year and they look particularly lovely and joyful after a long long winter! Good to hear from you!!! :) B
