Hi all: I live on a small farm in NE PA, almost to the NY border. We don't farm any more, but grow and preserve a large garden, have a few chickens, a pair of peacocks and two cats. I work two part time jobs - as bookkeeper in a greenhouse, and I also work with medical records. I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, and used to do a lot of baking, but since I have been working, I have been doing mostly short order stuff. Ugh~~ I also make hand woven rag rugs in my spare time. I have just taken early retirement, and will probably be completely retired very soon (I hope) so that I can get back to cooking and baking again.
