In addition to punctuation and capitalization, spelling is important too. You know, like "Velveeta".

I am back! Sorry for being absent for a while. I was given the opportunity to take a 4 day all inclusive (kinda) trip to the ER and then recovery. Everything is good now and I am back to woot.

I still want to see an updated CT list from you. I'm sure we all do, actually.
Really curious what your actual numbers are, and of what. Aren't you afraid some of your stuff (like the drink-now wines) would start to get too far past their prime? I know previously I've seen some stuff in your CT that I've wondered how good they still are. And that was over a year ago when I last looked.

It is! That Velveta stuff is nasty, unlike Velveeta.

However, any complaints on any current spelling issues with my sig need to be directed to ThunderThighs.

We did another one of our 7 course dinner and wine pairing benefits for Shakespeare in Delaware Park last night. We cooked for 12 including our 2 servers and us. Great time! Our guests left a bit after midnight. Everything is cleaned up already. I'm impressed--usually we're too tired the next day to get all of the clean up done! After our long spring nap, we got right to work and finished off where the boys left off.

I've never posted asking people to "like" something... but here goes.

My friend Sheila has made a short film for the National Cancer Institute.

It's on using stories for improving health knowledge.

"Tamale Lesson" is about cervical cancer awareness.

Please watch and "like" this video (it's about 3 and a half minutes):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSgZEAiPZFA

Sheila says there is no money for getting the most likes, but the winner gets a plaque from the head of the National Institutes of Health.

(Expect to see this repeated in next week's pub...)

Hmmmm. Wanna do a West Coast benefit dinner for Shakespeare in Delaware Park? Warning: you don't get any of the $$ to help defray the cost, but it can help reduce the wine cellar a little.
