Hi Penny in NY - Haven't posted to this list in a very long time tho I do try to read it when I can.  I have part of a loaf of the crunchy pumpernickle in the fridge.  Each slice is thin and you have to take a knife to separate the slices.  Each slice is about 4 X 4 inches and easily falls apart when you bite into it.  Yummy and one slice will fill you up.  Tried buying the party rye loaves - 2 x 2 inches this year and couldn't find them anywhere.  Guess they didn't sell enough of them to make it worthwhile.  Great for open faced sandwiches.

George, did the Grape Nuts stay crunchy in the homemade bread...?

We used to get a regular supply of cello-wrapped, thin sliced, dark
pumpernickle bread with lots of bits and pieces of crunch in it. I think 
they went out of business. One can buy a similar pumpernickle today,
but it has a smooth texture and is not exciting. 

Congratulations on your 40th anniversary -- and may you have many
more with careful conservation of your current energies and
