One Man's Ruminations Continue...
Elizabeth L. Johnson said, Very great! I'd watch the other video, even w/o sound; I can sit and watch and imagine the conversation! Just to watch family interact around a wonderful tradition!
I really wish I had even the sound. Among other things, my youngest son was telling us about his conversation with a Jehovha's Witness who came to his door. It appears that I took a picture and thought I turned the video recorder on. Then, at the end, I took another picture, thinking that I was shutting the video off. I was using my iPhone. :-(
This is very much like our southern tradition of making cane syrup. It's an all-day affair from crushing the cane, straining the juice, and boiling it down, removing the impurities. I'm a newbie at making cane syrup, but have some great guys teaching me---2 years of doing it so far! It's good, but nothing beats the taste of true maple syrup!
That's nice. I've watched YouTube videos of the process. The nice thing about maple trees is that you don't have to grow them every year. :-)
