    Whomever said "a watched pot never boils" wasn't a sugar maker or it would have been "an unwatched evaporator always boils over". Sheesh what a rookie mistake.

    and whoever said "frogs have to look through glass 3 times" before the season is over is also wrong. I heard them 1 week ago tonight here,Tuesday night and it froze last Thursday night and the sap was marginal on Saturday, over.
