    Thanks maple flats, I love my sugars :-) and most of them are big trees, though my three little 1-spilers in the bush also did their share of the work!

    ....when you pay close scrupulously close attention to the rules for entering syrup for a fair, turn up and enter it...then watch someone waltz in with an entry that violates at least three rules for entering at that particular fair. And you want to yell at them for not paying attention to the rules of entry, but you don't. *SIGH*
