I live just outside of Charleston, moved here 10 years ago from Long Island New York. I am retired, disabled partially but still get around with my cane. As you can see, I'm 67 (where did those years go?) Widowed simce 1982. I have a Siamese Snowshoe cat, almost 5 and I love, love, love my cat. He's a real cuddle in type. However, he weighs almost 16 pounds and kinda crushes me when he wants to be held. The Doctor said he's "just a big cat" (I wish my Doctor said the same to me)LOL For fun, I love to cook but am not always able to since I also have Fibro-Mialgia and I never know what day it makes me tired. I can work through some discomfort but I hate it when I feel so good, go to the store thinking of a million things I want to cook and then I lose my strength. I've had to give away some of the food that would spoil. I can't think of a favorite cookbook because I have a gazillion of them and get something from each and even though I have some favorite sites, I'm STILL buying them. Every now and them I just gather up some and give them away. My pet peeve is "me" and this insatiable quest to collect all these books when I now have the internet. aargh! I was up to 4:30am last night just looking at Greek recipes (that was the second night for that) I finally made a list of all the Greek cookbooks here and will check out one at a time (OCD you bet) I have no excuse for my crazyness. I'm going now to upgrade to Premium Membership and hope I'll be able to understand everything.
