Thank you all for your condolences. I am handling it better today. She was a very unique person with a heart of gold. Forty is way to young to go.

NC grows lots of pecans and the storms that blew through this year damaged a lot of crops, that's what I've been told. I can get local pecans at the farmer's market for around $9, in the grocery store they are $13.

Walnuts have gone up too, my store has them on sale for $4.09 a pound all season, so I am stocking up on them, I love walnuts, and we use them a lot on salads.
