It is almost beyond my belief that anyone (note I said anyone, not a woman) could be so talented in so many ways. I was thinking of the the old movie, "Christmas in Connecticut" in which the famous food writer was a complete fabrication.
I hope you'll find it in your heart to accept me back as a valued member of the brethren. If you have no objections, I'll be glad to publically post this apology.
Come on back, Richard. No need to run off.
The Internet can indeed make being cynical easy. You just need to know how to phrase your questions, especially if you're going to pick on someone like our cowgirl.
Jeanie's unlike anyone else on this board and she's on a pedestal whether she wants to be or not.
So, when a 'new guy'...well, you can see where I'm going with this.
Skepticism is OK - it keeps us from falling victim to the not-so-virtuous folks on the Internet - but sometimes it can be interpreted as an attack. I'm glad you turned out to be OK, and I'm sure cowgirl is happier you came back to apologize. I am.
