We all of us suffer some trials and tribulations in our daily lives; some more than others.
On New Year's eve I made some crab cakes with roasted yellow pepper vinaigarete (sp?) and corn relish. We had a friend over for dinner and we enjoyed a bottle of champaigne with our crab cakes. At close to midnight here in San Francisco the rain had stopped for a while and down by the Bay the fire works started.
At that time I became accutely aware that half way around the world, millions are stuggling to survive from one end of the day to the other after the tradegy of the Tsunami. We raised a glass to their peace and health and to the others around the world whose daily lives are a simple struggle to survive.
Peace and health to you all.
