Sunday Smorgasbord

This will be your last smorgasbord for a few weeks, folks. I'm going to Europe to the AED conference and then to wander around Germany and Austria (without stressing too much over the food!) Considering that I don't know when/if I'll have internet access in some of these small towns, I don't know that I'll have the time to put together a smorgasbord. So enjoy this edition and I'll be back to my weekly posting when I return.

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
