All subdomains rolled out by top level domains like yahoo, ebay, etc are given at high initial PR... whether it sticks after the next public PR update is another story

On the subject of Yahoo Food... I really hate the navigation in this product. It is "semitabbed". There are tabs at the top but they move when you click on them. All the tabs except the one you are on fold into a little box. Look at this page for an example.

LOL! I pictured something like your "Google Food" page immediately after browsing through Yahoo's page. It's like Yahoo is thinking to themselves "How much can we cram onto one page?"

Thanks for your brilliant work on this GB. I like help for poison victims as well. I have to put a plug in for my recipe site recipething.com Our approach is more of a social network meets GTD for recipes. FWIW.
