How to Make Pickles

Buy a jar of pickles and eat them, carefully preserving the fluid in the jar.

Buy a small Persian cucumber.

Slice the cucumber and place the slices in the jar.

Refrigerate and wait a week.

You will have some new pickles!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a lovely family gathering yesterday at Laila and Loic's in El Cerrito. There were 17 of us. Kelsey and Aidan drove me over and Dylan drove me back -- in the rain. I hope everyone else had a wonderful day too...

My favorite moment was Uncle Dylan lying on the living room floor playing games with little Daisy.

Finally clean air!

Seven Grandchildren and Claire

They are in the mountains east of here to escape the bad air at home.
