    Worldwide, there is no sharp distinction between “bananas” and “plantains”. Especially in the Americas and Europe, “banana” usually refers to soft, sweet, dessert bananas, particularly those of the Cavendish group, which are the main exports from banana-growing countries. By contrast, Musa cultivars with firmer, starchier fruit are called “plantains”. In other regions, such as Southeast Asia, many more kinds of banana are grown and eaten, so the simple two-fold distinction is not useful and is not made in local languages.-

    Heather, quite a while ago you wondered about mending hand knitted sock heels….I just found a great way to do it with my embellisher machine-never go back to the old way again! Check out my blog!

    Scarlet Letter sounds great to me, too. I’m looking forward to your teaching on this one, Heather, since it was another of those books that I was NOT crazy about in high school English. I’m ready to try again, since that was junior year – very nuts and bolts – and I don’t think I liked, as such, any of the books that year. Unlike senior, with Joyce and Tolstoy and Kafka and Rilke…..Missing you on Ravelry, Heather!

    I think it’s a great idea for us to read Scarlet Letter ourselves. I love the book and I’m excited about revisiting it this way. Count me in as a reader for sure.

    WOW! Everyone check out the cake site link! I haven’t laughed this much in a long time.

    Hi Heather! Seth from the Free Listens blog here. Thanks for your comment introducing me to your site. Is there any way I can point my readers to previous episodes of the podcast or do you just have the most recent one available?
