Hi Philip: I read your profile and saw that you were from Indiana farmland. I am from VERY small-town Ohio. :) My brother and his family live in southern Indiana, just over the river from Louisville. While I am not involved in the international organizations and have not travelled outside the US to help others as you have, I do commit my time to 5 or 6 volunteer jobs here in my area, so I like to think I am going good deeds as well. Glad to hear that you are enjoying Lunch. Sheri

Hey Philip, I'm the Lunch Community Manager and I just stopped by to welcome you to the site, and to thank you for your very thought-provoking review of Kick-Ass.  I read your profile and it's very cool what you have to say about Common Ground!  It also sounds like you've got a lot of unique insight to offer and I can't wait to read it :)  Something also tells me that you'll appreciate the Vegan Living and Healthy Lifestyle communities here.  Let me know if you have any questions and have fun exploring Lunch!

Hello Devora, It is nice to meet you, thank you for the welcome message. I am enjoying exploring Lunch.com, it is a new experience for me, kind of fun. I am on the road for the next two weeks and my laptop crashed last night before the trip, so my online access is a bit limited. I will certainly check out the Healthy Lifestyle community. Vegan Living sounds nice, though I am eating fish these days. :>) Keep up the great work!
