  2. That pic of your chicken is wonderful; the light, composition, color….and I love that it’s not on the typical serving patter too! I love really good photography! I love your blog just like it is, but I understand wanting to change things up. I do it all the time at my place. Will be changing it up again soon in fact. I kinda look at changing up my blog like re decorating my house. It doesn’t cost me anything and it is fun to have a new look.

  3. Jo-Anna,

    Lovely blog you have. Saw the recipe for the lime thai chicken and wanted to give it a try. So glad I stumbled onto your site through Pinterest. I was looking at the no bake grasshopper pies and this picture caught my eye at the end of it. FYI, I’ll be 50 in a few months. I teach high school math in N. Ga, just outside of Athens, home of University of Georgia. Like so many of your other readers, I often feel younger and usually don’t even think about my age…until a big birthday comes along. I’m mom to two wonderful grown sons and wife of 30 years to Superman, no really. he’s wonderful. I’ll be coming back often to hear what you have to share and enjoy more recipes.

  4. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established
    blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Cheers

  5. Should the selling individual never mske this call,
    the originall dealership will never know the car was sold, that
    the auto extended warranty was not used, and, therefore,
    never issue a refund.If money is not a constraint, then it would be better to buy a rather
    then a used one. In the technical world, you don’t have tto wlrry about anything.
