To Answer Some Questions…


I’ve had lots of welcoming emails from many residents in my new town this week.  You are all the friendliest people I have never met!

As someone posted a comment yesterday saying they saw me in the local newspaper, this set off a barage of emails from many of my long time readers asking how they could find the articles.

You are all very persistant.  I like that about you.

They were published earlier this week in the News-Register.  You can find the first one here and the second article right here.

Have a great day everyone, more to come about a fabulous dinner we had last night.  I have to be able to button my pants again before I can write about it.

    Driving by McMinnville I noticed they had street signs on the road telling you where the wineries were. Will there be one for Noble Pig???

    Awesome articles girlie…I loved you before, but even more so now.

    Yes…you HAVE to come to Blogfest next year. The Wine One One was just too funny! I haven’t heard what the total was but I am thinking close to 70 bottles were consumed over three days! We are going to try and get Bobby Flay to come and cook for us!!

    Excellent articles, Cathy. And you know what? I didn’t know that about the Wild Boar. I guess I missed that part if you ever mentioned it on the blog. Sorry!

    Those articles were great and thank you for sharing them with us! I learned so much more about you and it only made me more fascinated (and slightly jealous) about your new life. How great that you and your family are living out a dream.

    Hi Cathy .. it was good to get some more background of you all .. good luck with it all. I look forward to getting to the butterscotch recipe .. and holding power over my world!

    Wonderful .. have fun .. you will and the site is brilliant – well done for starting it .. let alone clearing the Scotch broom, blackberries and Douglas firs!

    By the way – does the Scotch broom smell of pineapple?

    It sounds as though another project is for an apple orchard .. for ashthma girl ..

    Have a good weekend ..

    Taking lemons to make lemonade was truly embodied in your journey to the great NW! And welcome :) I live up in Seattle, but if there was any place that could compete with the greenery up here it is Oregon. I hope you are able to make sufficient paths through the boxes etc. It took me about three months to make it look like I had unpacked…just don’t look in the closets…Enjoy your new adventure, mostly because I enjoy living vicariously through your blogs! Cheers!

    What great articles Cathy, I loved reading about you and your family! Sorry for my absence, computer problems have left me so crazed that I retreat to the kitchen to find solace in Klondike bars, lots and lots of Klondike bars.

  44. I used to live in Orange County too, probably the same time you did. I got my masters in clinical psychology at Pepperdine in Newport Beach. It was great to read in five seconds years of your life and your dream…I know you will do well.
