Sorry to have been away. I have been invited to join the Orble blog community, and happily agreed.
I will be writing a blog there, as well as continuing my blogs here at Typepad.
I've been writing for them less than a week, but, I'm getting pretty fond of the community. Of all the blogging communities I've explored (about 8 or so), I like this one the best.
Still haven't figured out how to vote on blogs & all, (something they do) but, I'll keep trying. Or ask one of the members.
Anyway, apologies for being away. I'll try and fold my blogging there into a more regular routine so that I can return here more frequently.
One thing I did come across recently that seems like a very good idea for living well is Restaurant.com
Looks like they are only in the US, and you want to check your zip code for the selection participating area restaurants, but, if you live near a major city (like San Francisco) there's a wide choice.
With most of the participating places you pay $10 and receive a coupon for $25. I wish I could translate that into every aspect of my life. Get $25 of value for every $10 I spend.......
I could daydream about that for awhile.....
