I'd like to wish all of my American readers a very happy and safe Fourth of July, full of pomp, parades, and hotdogs! You know, this month marks a special anniversary for the blog--it's now been going strong for five years. It's hard for me to believe since the time definitely passed by in the wink of an eye. So, to celebrate this milestone and to thank my readers and fans for their patronage, I'll be doing a giveaway next week. It's nothing earth shattering, but it is a nice item to win (hint: especially for foodies) so stay tuned. Hope everyone stays cool and safe today!
