Comment of OaBNWeECh:
according to Richard Smith who seems to be pretty much a exrpet on Thoreau and delivered a speach of fact &fiction, Thoreau's First Year at Wladen Pond at the Thoreau Society Annual Gathering, on July 14, 2007 and I insert from his artical- [42] Yes, Thoreau did enjoy meals at the homes of his family and friends. Non-Thoreauvians like to point this out, as if Henry was somehow living a lie by eating out with his friends. He mentions these arrangements in the book, that his dining out was something he had “always done” and would, no doubt, continue to do in the future. He didn’t view this as hypocritical. Why would he? But, somehow over the years, this dining out with friends has become “raiding the family cookie jar” or, the ever-popular “bounding through the fields every time the Emersons’ dinner bell would ring.” [url=]xcrgfut[/url] [link=]dcfdixpeipd[/link]

Love that fan! We live about as far away from you as we can on the Continental US, diagonally, so we don't have the same clooing needs for ceiling fans. Instead, we need them to push warm air down from high ceilings to where the people are. Anyway, there are some ugly fans out there, so I've been looking for more interesting, contemporary options.

Once you start making hoedmame chicken broth you never want to go back to the canned kind. It gets easier. Here's a trick for the next time: freeze the chicken broth in an ice cube tray and you'll have already measured stock for recipes.
