I buy cherries on sale in summer & freeze them. Canned cherries are revolting to me.

Carl, what a pretty radish; glad to learn it is nice tasting. I put "watermelon radish" seeds on next year's seed order. 

Daniel, I like what I read about the Stargazer skillet. It will last for generations and serve you well. What is your first thing to make in it? Hope you send a photo with something delicious you make.

Randy, If you buy canned cherries they taste like the can. I wonder if cherries come in glass jars, i.e. like mango, papaya, which I find in the cold food section is. They are in jars and refrigerated.

Earlier this year I ordered a newly-made Cast Iron Skillet from a start-up company.  It turns out there are several new small companies that make cast iron, including one in Portland.  The one in Portland is way too expensive, but I also liked the information about this "Stargazer" skillet so I ordered one.  Their forge could not handle the capacity, and they contracted with another forge to cover back orders.  Finally came yesterday.  Nicely made, in oven now getting its seasoning process.

Actually, the estate sale vintage or antique skillets are lighter weight and just as smooth, for a much lower price, but sometimes it's fun to play.

Carl, that's a beautiful radish!

I ate a food last night in a restaurant that I've never had or heard of before.  Watermelon radish.  

I chose it as one of my vegetables in stir-fry.  I was expecting perhaps a mildly hot taste but it was surprising sweet.

I've spent half my life pitting cherries. So, it comes as no surprise I don't grow, pick, or eat cherries anymore. But, Daniel, your pie sure looks delicious!!

Thanks, Spud! I have some interesting reading ahead. 

I have no idea if they had testing to determine validity and reliability and replicability with their procedures.   

President Eisenhauer brought Acupuncture back to the States in 1971 as reported in The Birth of Acupuncture in America. I remember it well when it happened and Dr. Paul Dudley White was Eisenhauer's physician.    

It was years later, as you probably remember, when I was in China I went to health care facilities to talk to women about their health care delivery systems. The hospitals had Quonset-like huts full of men and women receiving health care. Many of the patients had pins sticking out of them, head to toe. There was no division of men from women, the families cared for the patients, supplying clean sheet, pillow cases, nightgowns, and food. Families cooked on small charcoal stoves outside the Quonsets. The visiting families and friends sat on benches beside the beds, occasionally going outside to tend to their personal needs. The families cleaned up the patients as was needed.

Daniel, congratulations on your evolution as a baker with your tender flaky crust.  Looks delicious.

Joan, I first started questioning WebMD when I read them saying Acupuncture, is good for some pain, but I've read several places that say It's no better than placebo.  

Wikipedia says acupuncture is not scientific, it's pseudoscience, alternative medicine, and many trials have reached inconsistent results.

Rational Wiki is mostly negative about acupuncture:

Quack watch is also negative about acupuncture:

This article is very critical of WebMD:
