Happy 1st Anniversary SSC and Thanks to All Our Readers!

Our nephew Gerrit celebrates his birthday with diet-destroying ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery.

We were so busy over the summer that we just realized it’s been over a year since we started this blog. In fact our first post was in May 2007. So we figure it’s time to celebrate our little blog’s first birthday.

Thanks to everyone who continues to read our posts, and write in with comments, thoughts and questions.

We enjoy hearing from you and, in a lot of cases, even meeting you!
