Wow, thanks for all the comments, everyone… I feel so welcome (and, well, hungry)! (A footnote that may or may not clarify something for the long-time readers among us: When I worked for WD years ago, my byline was still my maiden name, Jessica Yerega.) To answer a few other questions: I’m a Pittsburgh native, though I’ve lived in the Buckeye State my whole adult life–of course, I’m still a Steelers fan, much to my husband’s chagrin. And SabrinaEden, you’re absolutely right: This is, simply put, a pretty cool job.
I have to ask: What do you all like best about this forum? (Besides Brian, of course.) I’m so impressed to see so many experts and veterans here!
