Homemade Bread Day — November 17 [same day every year]

I got quite excited watching the two clips at the bakery. I make bread at home and still learning all about the correct proportions for the yeast, salt, flour and water. Thank you for those.
Oh, by the way, I am a new subscriber to the newsletter and look forward with some mild anticipation to receiving my first edition. I think I qualify in a great many mildly interesting ways as a member of DMC and maybe will be able to share them with fellow subscribers.
That is, if I can avoid the excitement of finding that almost every click on the website takes me to the same page.
I look forward to enjoying a very steady Christmas, as always, and I wish fellow subscribers an equally enjoyable occasion.
