... Plums from Spain, which are the most incredible plums ever. I spoke with him and told him of my quest to find those plums again and to sample ecstasy.

By the end we were happy to see the bulk of the influx of people clearing out of the city. Will be nice for it to get back to normal! For a change, I started making bread for something to do and dabbled with different loaves. Exceptional carby goodness.
