Zone 10 in Los Angeles, rhubarb grows well here. It does have red stems, but not sure of variety as I got the divided roots.

A first aid kit is for *emergencies*.  Stop the bleeding.  Stop the allergic reaction.  That may be it!

Others over the years, in multiple forums, recommended things like Pepto Bismol, burn cream,  nail clippers ... stuff that belongs in a bathroom medicine cabinet.  With that and related stuff, the first aid kit would quickly become large and unwieldy, and it'll take longer to find the QuikClot.  (It's hidden under the Drownproofing pamphlet!)

A first aid kit, I've concluded, is a personal thing, and most folks want an all-encompassing kit, 100+ items.  

I guess that depends how we define first aid. Diarrhea can be deadly. Heat attack and stroke can be deadly. So remedies for those in my opinion have to be in the kit. Plus having bad pain is an emergency in my opinion too.

But a lot of my friends who prefer either a more classic or more sporty style wouldn't wear a dress like this, either.

I don't like fitted either. I just would prefer not to have a cut at the waist low or high as it is not comfortable and very unflattering to many.

THank you so much. Then I will buy from your website.

That linen dress would be nice except that I do not like seam at the waist at all. Most linen dresses ready made have them, probably because it needs less fabric this way.

Would love to read the book.
Just would like to ask, if we buy from the above website instead of amazon, then we get pdf, not kindle right? I am asking, because I possibly would like to print some pages with practical advice, which we can't easily do from kindle version, but can from pdf.

Would you, please, give us the link to the right one?
