Gee, i hadn't expected the welcome wagon....thank you for the notice though . i took your advice and read some of the introductions - too many to go through tonight - you know the drill, so much to do all the time. i did read with interest the subject of favorite beverages! i don't drink much anymore, i'm afraid my husband will need me for something and i'll be alll cross-eyed and lazy, but should i have a preference - i'll take a nice spiced rum (amber or dark) with coke (the good stuff, not diet or flavoured) and a squirt of real lime and no less than three ice cubes in a tall glass (not plastic). if i can't have that how about a chilled (yes, very chilled) dry white wine......ooooh yummy!
