How about the Internet?

No offense meant. Few get to be Chefs but millions can get inspired. Cook better everyday and some maybe become proffesionals. The everyday joy - priceless.

Now the countdown begins and i "think" i have found the perfect house on the listings that i hope stays till i get there in a little more then 2 weeks! Granny is going to scout it for me ! Thanks again!!!! If it is as good as advertised i might have to pay her to stay in front of it and act like a lunatic neighbor to keep others away!
LOL...I can do that...:

I have a pretty firm "manly" handshake, especially since I'm a "girl"; but that's because I grew up military and had to hold my own in the corporate world which tend to be full of testosterone-laden one-up-man handshakers. I dunno about you peeps... but I tend to adjust my handshake and eye contact based on what the other person is doing. I just think that's more respectful than trying to figure out ahead of time what they might be expecting... you will invariably get it wrong. I had an Asian businessman once comment that my adjusting my style was the most respectful thing he'd seen an American do. Just think about it... what is more respectful than noticing someone else's comfort and preferences? Even if you study up on someone's culture ahead of time, that doesn't guarantee that you'll do the right thing for them when the time comes.

Just be yourself, but be observant and willing to adjust as necessary. Yeah, and this is coming from someone with "broken" social interaction skills... if I can do it, so can you

You are so right, follow suit with whom you have....body language, facial expressions, all go with the appropriate eye contact and handshake....you are amazing
