Hi Foxy, I will most certanly be reading your postings. But if you tell me I need a la carte food I will not take you seriously. I love cheese but can live without it.. I love red wine I can not live without it. I love to sit and read, And so the list goes on. Why do I do this, simple I am retired. I have COPD & Polands syndrome. I do however ride my bike every day for 20 minutes.
I look forward to your artical
