Just when I think I have my life under control I find myself racing from project to project.

First there is the opportunity to increase my blog postings to three per week. Why? because I am transiting into a career as a writer. Writer's must write. In addition to writing up the questions for an upcoming interview I am writing an article to enter in a contest. Second, there is the need to enhance my writing with research. People want facts, not just about me, but about others, about the world around them, and about opportunities. Third, there is this phenomma of everything coming together at once. For years I talked about sailing from Florida to NY Harbor. Now, I am in the last 9 weeks of serious planning. For years, I talked about meeting the experts in the world of sailing. Now, I am two weeks short of interviewing one of my heroes. Lastly, for years, I have told my husband of my dream to sail solo around the world. Now, with two years to go, he continues to plan to go with me and I still haven't the gumption to suggest we each take our own boat.

Back to the research, here are my questions:

I read on Pete's blog a suggestion for putting canned goods inside a plastic container to prevent corrosion. Has anyone tried this?

I aslo read that the KISS cookbook has an easy recipe for making bread. Can you make it on a stove top? Can you use a pressure cooker on an alcohol stove? How risky is it? The dern thing scares me.

I appreciate valid responses. Thank you, the sassy one, Marlene.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
