    Thanks for the linkbacks Chris!  I love your blog and your commentary.  Have you tried Macaroon’s? They are yummy, but a bit tricky to make so I haven’t attempted them yet.  I have subscribed and and will look forward to your political articles – I forget how much we think alike in that respect:-)
