A big Festivus "Thank You!" to Floyd

Once again, it's time for fancy baking and acts of gratitude, so I wanted to go on record as saying "Thank you, Floyd, for this grand site."


I have gained more than I can say from the lessons, the recipes, the photos, the tips and tricks, the educational discussions, the silly threads, the jokes and all the delightful personalities who hang out here. In this matter, you, sir, are The Man.


To give my appreciation some material form, I have made a small donation to Mercy Corps in your honor. I hope some of my fellow bakers follow suit; it is an organization that does great work.


Whether you mark Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus or all the above, I wish you -- and all who visit TFL -- a season rich in comfort and joy.

After baking all morning, or sometimes between shaping and baking, I consider it a reward to sit down in front of the computer and check out TFL.  Excellent work on this always improving site.

Thanks, Mark. 


Thanks again for the awesome videos you've been putting together.  Your contributions here the last year have been invaluable.

PS - Those palmiers Eric posted look outstanding.  Thanks to them, though it is 7:30 in the morning I'm already jonesing for a sugar fix!

It's organic sugar, so you should be having an 'organic sugar fix'.
