I have had the pleasure to meet Lindsay and now am addicted to her blog. She share "real" life in the Dominican Republic. I love her commitment to Chivirico and helping him learn things he may not otherwise have the chance to experience. She and her family have been a positive influence in this young man's life. Keep up the awesome blogs my friend. Yvonne

I absolutely love reading Lindsay's blog about the DR and Chivirico. She is both entertaining and educational in her writings. Whenever I see there is a new post a smile takes over my face in anticipation of what's to come. Her writings of Chivirico and his support of him have not only touched my heart but that of many others. Keep up the great work, would love to meet you someday!!

I first came across What about your saucepans a couple months ago...I enjoy each and every post that is made, but mostly the post on Chivirco and his adventures. Chivirco is a very lucky little guy to have Lindsay in his life, and she to have him...But through her writings about the little guy, it has allowed many to fall in love with him and hope the best for him. I, like many can't wait for the next post!

Absolutely love Lindsay's blog!! Definately deserves to win!! I have been reading it for last few months and look forward to each new installment - especially new tales of Chivirico's adventures :) I am leaving England in a few weeks to move to a barrio in Dominican Republic with my husband and 2 step-daughters and she has given me a valuable insight of life to come - even the bad bits haven't put me off!! Lindsay deserves every award going for her honesty, sense of humour, and time and effort she puts into her blog - many many thanks xxx

"Laughter through tears" is probably the phrase I would use to describe Lindsays blog. A REAL look into the heart of life in the DR far away from the illusion from resorts and popular residential areas for expats. Her sense of humor is second to none and probably her secret for surviving and embracing the DR culture.

Saucepans blog is an excellent blend of humour, humility and education. This blog is an excellent veiw into barrio life in a third world country. Always an enjoyable read.

Lindsay is a wonderful and dear friend, and her blog is so entertaining and educational at the same time. Having had the privilege of livIng near her a few years ago, and visiting her now whenever possible, I can say that her stories are absolutely true, as I have witnessed some of them! She is funny, real, and engaging, and she absolutely gets my vote!!

I absolutely love your blog. One suggestion is that you add a link to your first post. Today I have gone back through all posts containing Chivirico. As the mother of 4 sons I treassure posts about this darling little boy. My computer is at the computer doctor and I am using my old 4 computer away relic. It gets me around, but creaks a lot. Kath in Canada (came from England almost 50 years ago.
