Jane!
 
It's good to hear from you, even considering the items for discussion.
 
Here is some feedback just from Tom and my perspective.  We REALLY enjoyed the one and only meetup we attended.   Food was great, company was great.  Nothing lacking there.   What's happened with us is that we are (here comes some repetition) not so much combining ingredients as we are EATING the ingredients separately.  The nuts, seeds, berries, etc.   So many recipes call for dehydrating for long periods of time, which, I understand why, but don't like idea of using so much energy (of the electrical kind:)
 
Because of my hernia and deteriorated digestive tract, I have to be VERY careful.  And my fibromyalgia offers a real challenge in terms of what flares it up, etc.   In short, I see us, realistically, sticking with grazing.  I.e., I'm not sure what we have to add to any discussion, although usually I don't let that stop me . . . :O)  
 
So I guess we're kind of ambivalent, Jane.   I know how strongly you feel about the raw-foodist direction, and I totally agree in principle with all aspects of it, as I understand it. 
 
I do believe I'm rambling, so I'll stop.
 
I hope this is helpful, and if we'd still be welcome, we'll attend the next meetup, good Lord willin' and the criks don't rize (or fall!).
 
Thank you, Jane, I hope you're enjoying life regardless,
 
Beth & Tom Haas    ** I have not given up on doing something with music at the hospital.   I guess I need some suggestions, or just hands-on, come what may, fly by the seat of my pants, as usual :O)   THANK YOU!

Greetings, good people.  Our next Columbia Raw Food Feasters is in 3 short weeks.  Please look at your calendars and if you can attend, RSVP asap.

I confess to feeling a little panicky inside.  Our meetings over the last few months have slipped in attendance, and while it's been very nice to have some low-key, quiet discussions, we have not been keeping up with our financial commitments to the place where we gather or the Meetup.com site.

If the group continues to be small, fewer than a dozen or so people, we can move it to my house down the road from our meeting place.  This is not my preferred option, but will become a consideration if the size of the group remains small.

It's a BIG help in knowing what to do, if you will RSVP on the Calendar Page as soon as you know you're planning to come.  Thank you for that, especially through whatever this "dry season" we're experiencing is.  Also, any ideas that you have for spreading the word about the great opportunity to gather around some very healthy food and great, great company, do them!  We've been very  successful providing an hospitable, comfortable space and learning environment here since 2008.  I can't believe that our natural life span is up.  We just need a boost......so boost already!  If you have thoughts about any of this, feel free to contact me, or start a discussion on the discussion board.  Thanks.......Jane
