    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    "English Holiday Tea" tomorrow

    I'm up to the challenge. The Historical Society puts on a fund raiser/social event each Christmas season with fancy plateloads of pastries, mini sandwiches, etc. etc. etc. and TEA. We need to go to support a worthwhile group in our small town. SO.... I put a boiled egg and 1 piece of string cheese, and a sandwich sized flat plastic container in a large pocketbook, and enjoy the decorations, music and friends. I drink lots of tea and take home my whole allotment of goodies for DH. It worked last year. I took one bite of the best looking cookie and immediately passed the remainder to my DH. I must add that I do not like sweets anyway -- they make me gag.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

    I love the way you plan ahead for this event and enjoy the activities and tea, then bring home food for your DH. Have fun!
