    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise
    was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying
    12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz,
    Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship
    after its stop in New York.



    This would have been the largest single shipment delivered to
    Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.
    The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.



    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were
    eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their
    anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of
    Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is
    known, of course, as "Sinko de Mayo".

          Well I never... you learn something new every day. Perhaps that explains why Mexicans use sour cream on their tacos.

          This has reminded me of a Canadian archeologist who told me that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce was very popular with early Canadian settlers and trappers who foraged in the tundra. Since Lea & Perrins have maintained a record of all their bottle designs, archeologists have been able to sift through the remains of settlements and date them according to the types of Worcestershire sauce bottles they found.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
