First I'd like to say that membership in this community has increased to 72 members and 86 watching in just two days. I'd like to welcome all the new people, especially the ones I don't recognize any which way. Seriously, I don't get how some of you found this place. ;)
Second I'd like to reiterate the pimping mantra. Please, do spread the word, I'm a little wary of trying the stranger, more obscure ingredients without a large community to draw from. That's not to say I'm not incredibly pleased with the numbers so far. I am. Pleased that is. So very. Ask anyone whom I chat with. I bounce. It's scary.
Third. The poll results are amusing to watch in real time. Also, I really thought I was kidding about needing that D20 to help decide on topics. Now I see it was more psychic than anything else.
Fourth. Meet the new mods. Say hi to fairestcat
. There will probably be one or two more soon to help with the tagging needs that will be a bit complex in the beginning.
Fifth. While we're waiting another 24 hours for the poll results I thought I'd give us a little mini discussion. Here's a bit of useful information.

The information is from the McCormick
website. Yes it's a big advertisement for their product, but it's also got a pretty decent encyclopedia of herbs and spices.
Please. Discuss. Disagree. Or say nothing at all.
