And a happy new Year!

Here's looking to 2009 with new eyes and new posts. It has been sparse at best I know. Number one resolution is to get this blog back on track! See you in January!

Here's a post worthy of your time if you happen to go to office parties where alcohol is served! It is written by a law professor somewhere in San Diego.

Merry Christmas!

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Remembering the real reason for stopping, and pausing today. May youfind Joy in this message too. Merry Christmas to all of you, my readers.

It's Christmas, Missing Leslie Harpold

Leslie harpold passed away in 2006. For a few years I had enjoyed her Christmas Advent Calender. Her snowglobe was the best ever. This isn't a food post. It's a post about a person I never knew in real life. Yet, she added a dimension to my holidays while stuck in a workplace with internet access.

She brought a bright spot to the working day during the holidays for me. I also enjoyed her wit and creativity. Others knew her personally and the world took pause to learn of her death in 2006. So today I googled Leslie Harpold in hopes that I'd find another person missing her too.

Last year, the folks over at 43 Folders did a series on Leslie. You should click on the link and find out why me, and others, miss Leslie and her work.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

I'm busy and beginning a new job in a new segment of the food industry. I'll be back soon with stories, rants, and images of a new side of food!

It's almost Christmas! Time for the M&M photos.

We've been working here like little elves. The tree is up. The house lights are twinkling outside (can we say wow!) and the other decorating has been done. I took a moment today to think about the Christmas cards. My friend Tara, has a cute design and has made me think I should chuck the purchased cards and do something as creative!

So I got out the camera, spilled some M&Ms and came up with some cute photos.Christmas m&ms

Christmas m&ms

Then amazingly, I channeled my husband the therapist and got a M&Ms Christmas Rorschach vibe. What do the m&ms say to you?
