    Hi Heather, I haven’t had any time to respond about the religion piece – I’ll work something up I hope. In the meantime, folks who are interested in the Twain autobiography might want to check out the podcast from today’s show on radio station KQED “Forum” on it with some Twain scholars – I didn’t catch the whole thing, but the parts I did were pretty interesting…

    Thanks for the compliments on my quilt! Unfortunately, no Shepherd’s Pie at the reception. But there was a lovely salmon (stuffed & wrapped) – I only had a bite – too busy being Mother of the Groom! lol

    Now I’m waiting patiently (not!) for news that I can start a baby quilt…….

    I don’t have a deep fryer and I don’t live in the USA so can’t give you any advice on which one to get but I can offer you an indulgent dessert recipe when you do get one!Pisang Goreng is a Malay street food eaten when Westerners would have donuts, they even dress them the same sometimes with sugar, cinnamon and cream. I followed this recipe but didn’t use the rum flavouring as I’m Muslim. Also, instead of chopping up bananas I used lady-finger bananas and cut they laterally as that’s more authentic and fun too. They didn’t take that long to deep fry as the recipe says, more like 1 minute or less. Good luck with the deep fryer hunt.

    Heather says–OH MY GOODNESS! My sister is going to fall in love with this too! Thank you!

    Twain’s Autobiography–Volume 1 alone is 700 pages 😉 http://www.amazon.com/dp/0520267192/?tag=craf08-20(couldn't get add link function to work, but it’s easy enough to find info on this book by googling Twain Autobiography)

    I saw Sweater Quest in the bookstore a few weeks ago and wondered if it was any good. Now I’m going to have to read it!
