Hi Terry - It would be great if you go back into your profile (click on Settings in the upper right hand corner) and answer two additional questions that we just added - I need help with and I can help with. We want people to be able to search by those parameters.

In addition, we've just started a book club - the fall book is Omnivore's Dilemma - it would be great if you joined in. Kim
