No problem on the pickle recipe. Like many recipes I have, if it wasn't for a decent memory and some scratched notes, I wouldn't have a real recipe to share. The original copy is only a PDF file on my laptop. If I don't have the laptop, I have no recipe. Now, if the computer dies or I don't have it handy, I at least have somewhere I can find the recipe! You finally gave me a real reason to get it organized and posted. ;-)
Thank you for the B-Day greeting! I'm back and will be leaving a comment in the Off-Topic forum in the "MIA" thread to briefly explain my sudden disappearance. The short version: death was staring me in the face....sudden and brief but changed my focus on how to spend my time for awhile until I could mend. But all is back to normal now. I hope you all will have me back and I hope this finds you well and happy.
