Hey Uncle Bob, is well-guarded safe fireproof as well? In case it isn't, don't you think that you should back up your family treasures by way of wider dissemination, eg. by posting here, just in case? After all, online backup is very much involved these days.

Uncle Bob, you can't blame me for trying. At least I can sleep better now secure in the knowledge that the family secrets will trickle out over time albeit a drop at a time as it seems.

I love the Moosewood Cookbook. Is this collection of recipes based on the Moosewood Resort? I read it every couple of years and I don't want to go digging for it right now.
