I guess I just feel like advertising a little today and since I’m not an advertiser per se, also to advertise something or somethings which can’t be bought easily … like pie in a store in a foreign state!

So if you are looking for other recipes besides pies (though there might be a few pies there too, no promises either way), you have to visit BIA (Brut Imperial Antarctica) through my WordPress group. Please do although as of the morning/early afternoon I still might not have finished any link posts there.
