Norma,

Thank you very much for the kind words. I also want you to do that I do not intend to ask for a recount :-D.

But, to be serious, I owe you a lot too. You and I have been collaborators in so many of your projects, where you and I did most of the posting. The things you wanted to do very often forced me to learn things that I never knew before or that sent me into my kitchen to do experiments in order to be able to help you. Thinking back, off the top of my head, I can recall over a dozen instances where you and I collaborated on your projects, and where you and I logged hundreds of posts as a result. Since you had professional equipment and access to ingredients used by professionals, you were the pilot. I, on the other hand, with only basic home mixing equipment, a standard electric home oven and a pizza stone that were older than many of the members of the forum, and with access to mainly supermarket ingredients, was the navigator and consultant and dough formulator. So, our projects were important contributors to my knowledge base.

This forum has meant a lot to me. It has given me an opportunity to do fun and interesting things. It has also helped me keep my mind alert and not atrophy from too little use. But for all that the forum has meant to me, there are things that are far more important to me and that I never forget. My health, of course, is one such thing and, in that respect, I have been blessed or lucky. Having the love and respect of my family is another. I am now at the stage of my life where I am getting to see my granddaughter grow and develop into a lovely young lady. My goal at this time is to try to make her life, and the lives of my son and daughter-in-law, better. Everything else pales by comparison.

I think if I had a bucket list, one of them would be to get one day with the each of you learning.

Nick,

I think Peter could teach and help you better than I could.
