They like me. They really like me.

Today at work we had a "Back to School" company picnic. There were a bunch of activities for kids and employees. One was a bake off. For those of you who do not know, I'm addicted to watching food competitions on TV and have always dreamed about entering one of then. When I read the email, I immediately signed up to participate in the bake off.

I made whoopie pies. It is quickly becoming one of my trademark desserts. I made two different types, pumpkin with cream cheese frosting and chocolate with marshmallow frosting. And I won!!! They really liked my baking!!

Maybe this will give me the confidence to enter some of the other regional baking/cooking competitions.

Greetings from China

Okay, so I'm still here in Maryland, but Micah has been in China since Tuesday. He seems to be settling in for the month. He says that the Olympic Villiage is cool, but has been complaining about the smog and pollution. It is bad. Burns his nose and eyes when he walks around outside.

From what he tells me, the newsroom is just about set up and they are ready for the game to begin next Friday. So for his first and only weekend off, Micah is heading to the Great Wall tomorrow. Hopefully he will send pictures.

Here are some pictures of Micah and some of his team, getting "warmed up" for their events.
