Went shopping this morning for some walnuts and pecans for my Christmas baking. Oh my goodness, I couldn't believe the prices. Why are they so high in price?

Only if your bed is against the wall!

I'm nervous about trying it because I want to succeed. Luckily I have a supply of furs coming in, depending on the weather, the furs will be thick and luxurious. If I succeed or even if I am close to succeeding, I'll put up pictures to share the fun. Thank you for the encouragement!
I'll certainly look forward to reports of your progress. Gosh - between getting your backstory of preparing hides (Tales of Tanning, maybe?) and the Chicken Chronicles, an exciting time is to be had here on DC. And we mustn't slight the other adventurous posters -- the smokers (culinary, that is), the triers of parsnips and rutabagas, the picklers, the knitters and stitchers, the electronics wizards, the music makers, etc., etc. What fun!

Note to self: stop complaining about technology - look what it brings you.

I did that last year. Wouldn't renew it, but will say it was worth the $$ we spent as a one-off. I would also seriously consider it as a gift, especially for anyone home-bound.
