    Whew – life has been so hectic around here of late – looking at properties in Zurich, sorting out indoor plumbing and just generally horribly stressed about the run-up to the big move. Enough is enough – I am taking a nuge cup of coffee to the study, tuning into your latest programme and plain old chilling out….

    India!!!!!! You sounded like you needed a break, it’s great to hear from you! I hope the move goes well, moving is always so stressful. I’m glad the show helped, I know both of us both miss your comments.

    Tracey,

    Just a word of caution, when the cheese curds come out of the microwave they are really hot, like 150f type temperatures. Mozz only pulls if it’s over 130f. It’s sticky goopy stuff, like hot melt glue. So just make sure little hands are clear, wouldn’t want any burns. :)

    Well I am here at work listening to your latest show on my ipod, when all of a sudden in the middle of it stopped playing the podcast. Apparently the podcast on my ipod says the show was only 36 min. Since your website says it was 56 (unfornately I don’t have speakers or long headphones to listen to the rest at work)I will need to check my itunes, maybe it didn’t download correctly. Anyways looking forward to listen about your country cooking when I get home. =0)

    PS I was wondering if there are certain food items that you can’t food in Indiana that you really miss? I have been wanting to have a Dutch Letter (it is a pastry), but they do not have any that I know of here in Alexandria Va. However they are easily found in Iowa at some grocery stores. Especially in Pella, Iowa where at one point was a huge dutch settlement. The town is really cute and they huge wooden windmills, etc.They have quite a few bakeries that make them fresh (as well as other pastries and dutch food) and a huge tulip festival every yr that brings in tourism.

    Hi Misty and Andrew

    I don’t think I would be able to make half-way decent audio, but it’s a thought ;0)

    Hi, Misty and Andrew just a f.y.i. a pig won’t go where it can’t see. As an old pro at pig handling, two kids in 4-h and ffa and many years doing pig projects, make boards in half circles with two handles cut out, out of plywood,run alongside the pig with the boards to its side, can only see in front where you want it to go, the pig will try to turn around but put the board in front of it,hope you can use the trailer next year, i don’t think most people know how strong a pigs snout is, love the podcast.
