Thanks, everyone, for all the great comments! I had a lot of fun putting this together...and I may have been hungry when I came up with the idea! ;)

Kudos to Kimberly and Yvonne for taking this on every week!

Elaine, as you can tell from the tardiness of my comment this post is much needed by yours truly. Once the whirlwind ceased I stepped down, shook my head (just to get my bearings) and went back four pages to find this post. THANK YOU for getting me caught up on the happenings in the rain last week. Way Cool!! You did a "fantabulous" job!

Bravo Elaine...once again your blogging talents shine through.  I, like Yvonne above, have been absent at Le SIF...so I was hungry for all the news.  This posting fulfilled all my needs.  Now unfortunately I have a sweet tooth to go satisfy...can I order room service?

Cheers!
