Welcome to my BLOG –

This is the first comment I’ve posted on ‘Etiquettetcetera’ – a first toe in the water so I don’t expect any responses but please feel free…..

Over the coming months, I’ll be expounding on various subjects ranging from the UK’s National Health Service (from personal and family experience only); the equally ‘interesting’ experience I had at the mercy of a Florida HMO, etc; the gradual disappearance of good manners from our society and does anyone actually care; how to prep an edible wild mushroom that you stumbled across on your walk in the woods (no, not the shape-shifting varieties but those prized by foodies such as myself and BTW, I take no responsibility for your inability to identify them) – in fact I’ll probably talk about food a lot; how funny dogs are; relationships with fellow humans; skiing; travel; books; movies; learning new things; repeating old mistakes and generally posing the question: “Why on earth did they do that …and would you want to eat it anyway?”

I look forward to hearing from you – now ‘carpe diem’. jm

    I am so looking forward to this! Funny how we never talked about food, I am a huge fan of cooking, serving, inventing and consuming great meals. Just finally got to Z Cuisine in Denver and what a treat! A definite place to go to regularly. Having a 15 year old I am as well appalled at the gradual disappearance of manners in the younger crowd though this daughter has not been allowed to go down this path. I wish you were closer!

    Hi Jackie,

    This is great. Looking forward to what you have to say. I’m grateful that you have taken the effort to keep our connection from many years ago. I feel certain we will meet in the near future. Let me know how I can be of service in any way.

    Metta, Alese

    Ah yes the loose interpretation of the RSVP! Seventeen years ago when Eric and I married we sent out 150 invitations twelve weeks in advance. This was done since we lived in Hawaii and people need time to plan if traveling. Well, the responses were slow, making it very difficult to guesstimate the amount of food, champagne, etc. We had 120 RSVP’s, and 90 people showed up. So rude!

  7. I’m going to be following your blog! I love it already…..I can comment on all those things!
