In an attempt to live a quiet life, mind my own business & work hard with my hands I had a strong desire to learn how to bake bread, from scratch, without the use of any new-fangled bread machine. In search of a good recipe, I called upon the one with the thousand & one kitchen gadgets my mother. She laughed, went into her sewing room and came out with a recipe on a brown paper bag. "I've saved this since third grade." There's something exciting about learning something new that never fades.
