Menu of Flava!
Dear Friends of Govinda's, Here it is, a second week, and we have a near 50-50 split between those who like this format and those who like the white on black. The good news that I take away from that is that I have two templates that work for connecting with all of you. Maybe we will pull the old one back out now and then to spice things up.

One reason is that I personally am plagued by a thirst for variety, and so I changed my mind. The second is that I w
