Comment: Thanks for the fun 'chunk'. My fav pizza is cheese... lots of cheese. My fav place to get it is right downtown... South Berwick House of Pizza. They use a lot of real cheese. So much that the oil will often soak through the bottom of the box before I get it home. I take a plastic bag and set the pizza on it on the great seat floor mat.

Comment: Thank you for the trip down memory lane. Being from Ohio I grew up around the Amish. My last trip home I brought home 10 pounds of their cheeses.. I commend you for homeschooling. I know it is a lot of work and dedication.
Response: Thank you for your kind words. They do have some delicious cheese!
