…Nothing is cast in iron…all burn in a wood fire

  3. Susan - thanks for your note over on my blog. And thank you for buying my book (I like paper too). My nephew actually made that video - he was studying film at Columbia. So many people have wanted to know, because he did such a professional job! Again, many thanks, and pleased to meet you - also to see my friends Inger and Delores here.
