    Where can you pick up the magazine? The map won’t load on my phone and I don’t have access to a computer. I’m usually in the northern Alexandria and Brandon areas

    I have tried the Pumpkin crunch cake and enjoyed it much, so quick to do.

    I also tried the pumpkin pie and it is great especially the topping. All your articles are timely and useful as well as interesting. Phyllis Tucker, Alex
