Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

    Hey all. Just checking in to say that I'm still alive.

    And also to improve your mood with a little ridiculousness.

      Glad you stopped by. I was beginning to think some thing had happened. Thanks for the "Sausage Gravy Cheese Grits" from your Secret Recipe club.

        LOTS of training! I still have two more tests to take but I'm back in the office to study for those. Glad you are enjoying the recipes, I posted two new ones yesterday for the SRC. That group is soooo much fun :-)

          I heard about this on the radio last nite – right where a story like this belongs. Just had lunch and don't need the visual. Eeeesh. I can't think of anything in life that's worth eating worms or roaches for.

        I know, I know, you freakin' love your Prius! :) I've driven a couple of hybrid cars and really didn't care for how it drives...

      Where the heck do you live?!

        I live in the Golden State...but we are not made of gold!! So Cal has the highest prices for gasoline in the nation, but I hear NY is catching up to us... I think our gubenor is going to switch us to "summer" fuel, instead of "winter" fuel, whatever that means! He also wants 6 BILLION a year tax hikes. We are doomed.

    Morning! Finally had to break down and turn on the heat this morning. I try to hold off as long as possible, mostly because I like the cool, fresh, crisp air and don't like the way heat is so drying inside the house.

    Have a great day!

      I think it's bc you are cheap and don't want to pay for heat ...or obma doesn't give you enough from the unemployment checks

      Good morning Truth. Despite the nasty weather, it is going to be a good day in VA. I ate at a Bob Evans for the first time yesterday morning. Pretty darn good.
