The gratitude season

The gratitude season

Being that the season for counting of blessings is upon us, I have been thinking a lot about how much I appreciate this site and the enduring influence it has had on me.

This online clubhouse gifted to us by our great friend Floyd has been a treasure chest full of inspiration, education, encouragement, confidence, entertainment, belly laughs and darn good eats for more than a year, and I could not be more thankful.

Since it would be impractical to throw a big party in Floyd's honor, I have made a small donation to his favorite charity, MercyCorps, ( by way of expressing my respect. If anybody has any other suggestions, I would be happy to hear about them.

That is very kind, Cooky. Thank you.

"The kindness of the TFL community" was definitely on my Thanksgiving list. We have a great group of people here.

I'm waiting on some French bread dough to rise right now - I've been baking for almost a year now thanks to this site and the great people in this community. A donation in honor of Floyd and The Fresh Loaf. Thanks for all you do, Floyd!
