Sorry about the allergy, my husband has been alergic to shell fish all his
life.  It was really hard for me to get used to not buying it for home
cooking.  Now I just order it when we go out which is twice as expensive
but only happens occasionally.  He does have me get shrimp for me
sometimes, he doesn't mind cooking it.  Good luck with the cuttings from
your Grandmother's house.
