Re: White privilege

I agree with this article but not sure why you chose the title you did. Just as there were slaves that were not black there are abortions being performed on folks of all races.

I am so sorry. I know how upsetting this is and know that everyone hear cares and is behind you and supports you 100%.

Re: Miele Upright Vacuum

It sounds like you bought it from a private store rather than big box store. Do the big guys even sell Miele?

Re: Sourdough bread

I have a very simplistic question so please be kind. I absolutely love extra sour dough bread. Anything less and it seems tasteless to me. The question is what is added, or done, to make it "extra sour"?

Thanks,
