Isnt this cool weather great. We do need rain but things really look good in gardens and fields. I was just thinking the other day about the hot, humid weather we had years ago. I remember mother baking bread and in a day or two it got sour in the middle of the loaf. Those days nobody had a refrigerator, just took everything down in the cellar and laid everything on the cold floors. After the hot summer weather was over the sour bread problem was over too. Do any of you readers remember your bread getting sour before you could use it up?

I was there in Hune and Huly.
