I'd never heard of the Brown Bread, it sounds yummy! Thinking of ordering a case - but at the high price and sugar content per slice, it'll have to be a sometime treat.

True - an occasional treat.

The other reason I liked having them in my pantry is that the cans make a nice little hostess gift, or something to take by a friend's house who is recovering from surgery. I have used them as birthday gifts -- added some coffee and/or tea, some candy/truffles -- put in a basket . . . they are just nice to have on hand.

I am so glad ZUGOR mentioned Brown Bread -- I am looking forward to having it in my life again, lol!!!!

Might a balaclava work? I have a couple of them that are polar fleece and like the fact that you can push the top down and keep your neck warm.

here's a link to one source:

men's balaclavas at REI-OUTLET - FREE SHIPPING With no minimum purchase.

I have a cream colored one - use kit for shoveling & dog walks.

Lenora = THis would be good. Does NH get that cold? Most men wear stocking caps and if they are wearing suits they wear some kind of wool cap that doesn't even cover their ears. Must look good - ya know.

I usually wear a hoodie under my jacket and use that hood and if it's really cold I use the hood of the ski jacket. We're tough as nails here, don't ya know.

The 'girls' at physical therapy today were exclaiming how amazed they are at how well I'm doing and told me I can get out of the big black boot so back to both of a pair of sandals!
(Honestly....I am NOT rubbing it in, talking about wearing sandals while you're discussing mittens and ear muffs...it wouldn't ever occur to me...really!

What did occur to me when reading the latest thread about the best and worst of 2013,that all but invites a mention of health issues for those that had any, is the thread luvmyhoss started a while ago about old people that seem to only talk about their medical issues.
Posting about a health issue in the Best & Worst thread made me feel so guilty

I got the last one for my kid. I didn't want any dangling cords or ties, etc, as he works in construction.

I ordered a case of 12 and will share with my southern friends who've never had it or even heard of it.
Oh yum! My grandma used to make that (always with raisins!), steamed in coffee cans.
I've sent her recipe to my niece who never had the chance to taste Gma B's.
Niece says it is now back as a family tradition
