I have other sources for bean seed specialists, too.

> We pretty much buy what looks good in the veggie department. I am jealous of the good artichokes in California

I decided I liked Santa Cruz just fine when I went into a local grocery and found that the baby artichokes for nine cents/lb were not missing a digit in the price. I don’t know that Trader Joe’s could do better by you, where you live, alas.

> I really lust after a huge house with a huge kitchen and space to cook and feed 20 people

This 3br/2ba house is barely larger than my 2 br/1ba apt I rented before Kurt and I found a place together. I had a better cooking/dining set up there! This is the smallest oven--and sink— that I’ve ever had to use in a kitchen setting. I miss our last house—it was a great one for entertaining.

It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.
