Lars before I forget it my son said to tell you thanks for sharing your website.

Some folks are too lazy to enjoy eating on real groceries. I gave a new neighbor a garden spot and he asked me if I'd work it for him. I told him no but when he got ready to garden just holler and I would be happy to show him how. That was 2 or 3 years ago and have'nt heard a word about it since.

I don't think I have a microwave, however I do have a digital clock that will on occasions boil water.

I hear and see the same thing.....folks, well esp the younger not cook, from scratch, some don't know how.........that is what cookbooks are for...amazing huh? We grew all our own food growing up, canned the surplus, and had a well stocked cellar......survivors, you bet.
And having only sisters in family, we were taught by our father to do all things, that boys did to help out with chores...Training them up in the ways to take care of themselves was his beliefs..and how so very true.

WEll..Old Lars I put anti seize on most bolts here just because I might be the one to remove them the next time.Many times they use torches to get old bolts loose..Oh yes..My pal Smiley told me that an onion will save the work on getting bolts to not stick.. Well bedtime..I hope the bosses clock is rusty.
