Excellent banner Jo Ann!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Laurie !!!!! DO WE HAVE PICKLES?
We belong to a CSA ( Community Supported Agriculture ) My daughter picks up our share of fruits and vegetables every week.
Plus there are cukes of various sizes that are almost free.
She has been pickling for several days,I'm sure I counted 12 quart jars of my grandmothers "Sweet Bread and Butter " pickles yesterday alone.
Sarah says she thinks she canned close to 20 quarts.
