Howdy!!
Welcome to D.C.!
Where in PA are you from? Mrs Hoot has kin in Mechanicsburg. She used to live in Carlisle.
We have a number of friends there and used to really enjoy going to Jubilee Day. I gotta get back up there for that, maybe next year.

Hi and welcome to DC :) I pickle many things, what are you planning on pickling or canning?

Buongiorno from Italy and welcome!

I'm not into canning, but you remind me of some weekends of my childhood days spent preparing and bottling HUGE quantities of tomatoes! (To say nothing of the wine bottling saturdays...)

Do you really live at the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp? How is the smoke today? We got it and a nasty smell about 3 times since the fire started. I am sure glad I don't live down there.

I live a just a few miles from the Dismal Swamp, but several miles from Lake Drummond, which is very near the fire.The smoke yesterday wasn't too bad. That means that the wind was carrying it off to aggravate folks elsewhere. This morning it isn't very bad, just a whiff of smoke is detectable. We have had smoke off and on nearly all summer, There were fires south of us in Pender and other counties. I reckon it will likely take a major rainfall to put it out completely.
