Spent about $70 on a variety of meat curing salts (34.5 lbs) and a meat pump (syringe). Reading this forum can be expensive.

I'm trying to get caught up on some of my DC reading (mostly this thread and Today's Funny for now) and being glad to be home for awhile now. A friend's husband was out of town for a couple weeks, and for a few reasons we spent much of the last couple weeks there, including many over-nighters. I don't care how much you love someone, it is hard to be away from your own bed and pets and your own ways (that aren't bad but aren't something you necessarily want to put on display for everyone).

Thanks, Dawg! It's sooo good to be back. Being cut off makes you realize how much you depend on the company of others.

Zhizara, glad to hear you are back and OK, and made it through with minimal damage. I can hardly imagine going through such a time....

It is three in the morning and I just finished watching an hour long special on Prince Charles's Highgrove organic gardens. The whole thing is totally organic. Nothing goes to waste. Even the water for the plants. All the waste water from the house is purified through natural means and used to water the plants. All plants that are removed to make room for other wild plants that are coming up, go into the compost piles to go back into the earth. I could spend months in those gardens. They showed a picture of what it looked like when he first bought the property. Absolutely blank.

The Prince talked about how the press reacted to him when he first started talking about organic gardening. They thought he was a wacko. Now the whole world is talking organic gardening. I could go on about how great this piece on the Prince was, but I won't. I was absolutely enthrall with the whole thing.
