TL,, yes it was a good one on the local news, TV and newspaper. I only live 30-40 minutes from there. I've had to go thru a lot of kidding about what I'm doing. Really,,, what I get asked about the most is ,, "where is the good stuff" 'the shine' 'white lighting' Where is the still????

We had a few low flying helicopters this past evening and made me think of this posting. I was expecting a visit from the police/swat as I was boiling, but no one showed up.
I even placed out syrup in the display and cleaned up the place. It would have made a neat open house.

I have had the local fire dept. stop in twice thinking I was fully engulfed. I have a Copula with lights shining up so you can see it from the highway and it does look GOOD.
