With two kids to pick up from schools and a contractor to work around, it wasn't happening this year. The store-bought cheesecake we had was quite good though. A very nice, mellow evening with the family.

Like many others, I have my busy times, and have not had much chance lately to check out TFL.  But it would appear that Oct 16 is Floyd's birthday.  Via another thread I see that Oct 16 is World Bread Day.  What does it all mean?

It means his mother had the good sense to give birth to him on World Bread Day.  Happy Birthday Bread Boy!  And a hardy thanks to your Mom!

Wow....Mini Oven has a point.  The creation of TFL may have been fate or pre-destined to happen!


Slight tongue-in-cheek aside happy birthday Floyd!  Happy labor-day to your mother as well.

We are all so grateful for you and your site, many heartfelt thanks and good wishes!

Happy birthday, Floyd.  Sorry the greeting's a day late, but coming from a family that often sent Christmas care packages in February, I'm glad it's just a day.  Hope the coming year brings health, happiness and outstanding oven spring.

Cheesecake and family sounds like a great birthday.  I know how busy you are these days, so I hope you have many more such mellow times. Have a great year, Floyd!
