DEAR FAITH DURAND! HELP! I'm 86, a no-nerd and I want to forward your emails to
friends so they can see what fun and helpful your site is. Just yesterday a friend was given a recipe for Mexican Wedding cookies that is far inferior to the one you blogged
today. I can't see how I can forward it to her.
Another thing: some of the give-aways are posted as closed, when I haven't even seen
the email that initially offered them. I check your emails daily as they are not only
an inspiration to cook, but they are informative and beautiful.

I mean that.

Sincerely,
Lucille

My attitude to the whole dust thing was changed completely when I was a teenager. At the time, we had a friend's mother staying with us. She was a
bohemian artist who introduced me to making tie-dyes which, in those days (I'm 86), she
called "dip-pies."

She said, "Dust is all right, as long as you don't disturb it!"

I asked her how she handled it. She said, "Go to the five-and-ten cent store and buy
two pair of wooly slippers, one for your hands and the other for your feet. Go create a
Sahara dust storm and get rid of it all." This she did once a month. In the between
time, she'd spray fixative on the dust so it wouldn't move.

Way to go! (sometimes)
