Who will slaughter and prep a live duck?

I learned to slaughter chickens from Carla Emery's book and understand why you want someone to do it. You want to have the least amount of stress for the animal. By the way plucking sucks.

Padrecito, SF

Actually, I replied in the original thread that it hasn't been removed and within the last couple of hours, stanbee's original post and all of the posts telling him it hasn't been removed has been removed.

Fresh Anchovies?

Monterey Fish is also very mindful of sustainable fishing and has been for many years.

Russian River Valley and Sonoma area wineries

The sign has been up when you pull in the back there, for at least a year. I have never seen anyone except the ryme folks, jolie laide and pax mahle there. I do only go to pick up stuff.

This post sure has a life of its own. I am actually curious about this cheese stuff.

They probably go out in alphabetical order? which means mine is usually last. (I know, I know--I am not really data challenged)

Mourad (from Aziza) [San Francisco]

A hundred years ago, I had a summer employment at the phone company. There were administrative offices there, yellow pages I think and there was a set of offices for phone company doctors. I had a slight injury that required being checked by one of them. This was long before thetime of the baby bells.

One Day in Florence - What's a CAN'T MISS Restaurant?

What exact day are you going to be in Florence? Since it is August much will be closed and Sundays will be problematical. For example Enoteca Pinchiorri mentioned is closed from August 2-24.

I go there semi-regularly and service is always great. Even my picky BIL was impressed after the no reservations thing threw him.
