Many of you joined in on all the fun with the release of the newsletter last week, followed by celebrating 2,500+ “Likes” on the Facebook page. If you were in on that, then all of this is old news and you have my permission to go do something more interesting.

We’ve been having a lot of Foodie Fridays, but I’m back on my *cough* “healthy eating plan” and trying not to think too much about food right now. I’ll have to round up some help from Alexis, Tristan, Sophia, etc., and maybe from “real” people, too, for some guest posts. But we haven’t done a Five for Friday in ages.
