  1. I'm so glad you did this! :) And, I should have said, "Now, INCLUDING the question I've asked and added on, add a question that YOU'd like to ask!"

    #22. :)
    #35., huh? Never been there. Will have to go check it out.
    #76. Do tell!!!!

  2. CM - Oh, patooie, I should have figured that out. I will edit and add it in. Real Food is the site of Joanne Grohman. She has been keeping a journal of keeping a dairy cow for years and it has grown into a journal of her daily life. At 80 something, she is sharp as a tack, still milks her cow and is the go-to person for all things raw milk, etc. If you have time, go back and read her journal entries. Wonderful stuff. #76? You'll have to wait for the book...;o)

  3. Melanie - #34 is still relevant and I lost two pair of sunglasses last year to the car...
