Don't worry, we're fine. A little break doesn't mean we've abandoned you! Chowhounds is still a vital part of our lives; we just took a small hiatus from posting to concentrate on work and organize a few things at home.
To Leslie and the Cheese Class Gang (they're a gang now--behold the power of cheese): We're sorry we missed you! Leslie says the class was wonderful. Illness, a work crisis and then plain disorganization kept us from finishing up the course, but our taste buds were there in spirit.
Leslie and a few others have written--I'm so sorry not to have gotten back sooner. You're all very kind, I'm misty just writing this.
Thanks again, and good stuff coming! See you all soon.
