Welcome to DC to one from D.C. How lucky are you. Sounds like some great experiences past and future. Perhaps you'll change the meat thing once in Italy. Don't know how you'll get around the pork or fish thing.
I'm GREEN with envy at your baker alliance up there.
None down here on the west coast Fl. The closest bread is on the east/miami coast and I NEED BREAD!
Dave C. your funny!
The older I get, the more I become myself.
