I missed everyone in the last issue. I took some time off for the annual garage sale in Des Moines ... don't you wonder where all of the stuff comes from and why you thought you needed it to begin with. Thanks to Dwayne for putting the Bulletin together. Now it is his turn to go visit his Mom. Our thanks to Mrs. Schmidt for sharing her Peaches & Cream Cheesecake. It has been an Open Line favorite for a couple of months. Give it a try and let us know what you think. It wouldn't be the July/August issue without some new rhubarb recipes that we have been receiving. Tuck them away for next year, or perhaps you are lucky enough to still have rhubarb. Try and stay cool or at least keep your cool in this seasonal weather. As I write this the heat index is suppose to reach 115° in Iowa. Too hot for my liking.
