  1. Thanks again. I didn’t quite understand the title at first but was pleasantly surprized when I finally understood. In my own return to nature I have purchased the book “The Bread Builders: Hearth Loaves and Masonry Ovens”. I want to build an outdoor Oven but have yet to convince my wife.

    I need to get Peter’s books then and learn more. The video is great. Also I can see the need to tune in and watch TED TV. I’ll be back again.Thanks.

      Hi, welcome back 😀 Yes, I did have a bit of fun with this title…lol. An outdoor oven sounds great, polish up your negotiation skills, I’m sure you can convince your wife ;-D
      Thanks for the link, I did have a look yet I don’t have the means nor the backyard to build or own such an oven. I am interested in learning the ins and outs of sour dough bread making
      The TED site is really good. I don’t know whether there’s a TED TV program but the link to their site is one on my Fodder Link list.

      Thanks for your visit.
