    When I returned home yesterday discovered my lighted laydown plate had snapped off above the bolts; wiring is still intact and working. Because I installed it years ago I cannot recall what plate I used, although I do know I swapped the included lights for the LED bolts pictured. I need to...

    Every little bit counts - nice job, wngd! It's not always easy to say no to the grab on the go, yummy tasting junk food! From May-Oct 2014 I lost 25 lbs. My ultimate goal was to loose another 10 lbs by end of 2014 and the final 10 lbs by May 2015. But I went off track...and I've gained...

    I know T appreciates y'all pulling for her. And if no one minds, I would also ask everyone send a few words of encouragement & support to T's daughter, Jenny, too.

Unfortunately she wasn't able to enjoy the home cooked dishes, but hopefully once all those nasty chemo side effects finally...
