Thank you, Larry! And how interesting to learn about the chimps.

Maybe we should all strive to get closer to our roots. Thanks for the valuable information, and thanks for mentioning Aunt Bett...who is also very close to my heart.

As a gardener: When planning for a year, I plant corn. When planning for decades, I plant trees. When planning for life, I train and educate people.

We should have another cubit just for herbs and herbal medicine, IMHO. I'm really interested in the subject.
