Penny, Just an update on Floyd. He is now in rehab and today is the first time I felt like baking. I have a sourdough sandwich bread rising. Thanks
to YOU and all the wonderful thoughts from our super group. Aria
I hope Floyd has a speedy recovery, good to hear from you Aria.

I was doing home made bread for a long time. I found that the yeast has quite an impact on flavor. As a matter of fact when San Francisco burned 1849 - 1841 a lot of immigrant folks were killed running back to their bakeries trying to save yeast strain cultures they brought from over seas . Now comes the the part where I need my rear end kicked . I had a strain that was brought to Oregon on the Oregon trail in a covered wagon and lost it somehow I am devastated over it . I wonder if there is any yeast strain traders on here ?
How do you save a yeast strain? 🤔 To me, yeast is a dry granular product.

So glad your back in here Aria .. I can understand the facility sayins no to
visitors keeps covid out .. So good be good to yourself from another.. Love you be well

When my husband was in rehab this spring I could not visit him. The staff would open his window and we talked at that time. I took his clean clothes twice a week and picked up his dirty ones. It was really harder on him than on me. Of course, we talked on the phone. He had a fractured hip and had to get much better before I could bring him home. I cannot get him up if he falls. He is 6' 3" and weighs in the 230's. I'm only 5' 2".

I have told him that if he ever gets to the point that he cannot do for himself I will have to put him in long term care. This would be really hard for me to do as we will be married for 52 years January 4, 2021.

Sorry the dialog got so long. Karen
