So glad you like the stuff, Mike! There'll be a big jar, packed up real careful, for you to take back to Tawmee!
You're right, I fell off the edge of the world for a while. One big change -- I don't have mice anymore, alas. I folded down the colony in about February (and made a bundle off the internet auction -- folks across the country were fighting over my bloodlines). And I still judge Mouse Shows regularly. Amazing how much more time there is on the weekend now, without 40 cages to clean! Can't tell whether the improvement in the general atmosphere in the house is due more to their absence or the lack of a certain large Labrador, though. (Anyone who's curious, check out Fancy English Show Mice on Google :))
KT or Susan A_R, d'you still need a ride? I can take one or two people up Friday afternoon, but I'm coming back Sunday night (gotta work Monday) so if you didn't want to do that you'd need to make other return arrangements. Happy to do a bit of driving to pick you up, though. Does this mean I get to come to the Thursday soiree?
