Oh, and the new season of "Psych" is starting on USA this summer... based on your TV list, I think you'd like it. I have a TOTAL crush on Sean!!!

OK, will add "Burn Notice" to Netflix queue (for when I get back on the TV wagon).

I am TOTALLY with you on the opening minds, real/not virtual hugs, and vacation in Tahiti. Hmmmm...maybe we could combine them? Vacation together in Tahiti and plan how to open up people's minds? 2 outta 3 ain't bad, anyway! ;)

I was just watching Bobby Flay on the Ellen show. He was making chocolate cake with a mango/run/brown sugar sauce and topped with whipped cream. It's ALL I can think about now!!!!
