Re: Sunburn

The morning came as it did every day. First with some color, then a full on brightness that served to wake Ric. Curled up in his wool travel cloak, the night had been one of little sleep; such was his anticipation of the knowledge to come. As he sat up rubbing his eyes, he spied Oscar sitting with h...

Re: Sunburn

Chapter 6 Lessons Content to follow his mentor, Ric followed as Oscar began climbing up the mountain again. While no hard trail was visible, Oscar had no trouble working his way up, as though following a well-known track. They soon came upon a wide shelf, one that this time ended abruptly in a near...

Re: Near-Death Experiments in Food

Bread can be frozen too and there is shelf stable bread that is good for years in the package. Frozen bread needs to be consumed as soon as opened as it will mold quickly when thawed.
