Hi! Welcome! :-)

One piece of advice: if you do a search through the forums to answer specific questions, make sure you check the date on the posts you read! Some of the topics are quite old and will have outdated information.

Welcome!! One of the best things about this forum is that there is someone who knows the answer to ANY question... and is more often than not, more knowledgable than lots of doctors!! The recipe section is awesome too!
