Thanks Ellen, I have pinched a number of your recipes and look forward to trying them! I live in the Canadian prairies, but my Mum was born in Gary, IN in 1928. The family moved back to Saskatchewan three years later, with the three little girls in the rumble seat! They moved back and forth between Gary and Saskatchewan, as my Grandpa and his brother alternated between farming and the steel industry. Thanks again!

Thanks, Betty. Only problem with that is that she's on a waiting list for an apartment in Westfield. That's a pretty long drive. She has experience as a receptionist in a hair salon, as well as retail sales. I will tell her about Plainfield, though.

I live near Decatur High on Kentucky. My Daughter is a Supervisor & they are hiring in Plainfield in lots of places. Try there.

She lived here with her dad (my son) for about a year during high school (Ben Davis) but was born and raised in South Bend. She is currently unemployed and we think her job prospects might be better down here.

Tell her "WELCOME" to Indy. I am sure she will love it here.
