Sorry for the lack of updates. I had a stroke on August 30th, and although I’m able to get around I have some residual problems. Most seriously, I have a blind spot in my left eye. It’s been a slow recovery, but I am recovering. I actually cooked my first meal last week, a potato and pea soup. I’m going to make a potato and corn chowder today. Something with a bit of heat to battle the fall chill.
