We held a demo at the Davis Food Co-Op this past Saturday, as part of their
month-long "Healthy, Wealthy and Wise" series of event. People were there
chatting with us almost the entire time; probably around a dozen.
It was run by Bill Kendrick, Tim Riley and Brian Lavender, with
last-minute help from Alex Mandel.

We received a hand-written letter at our PO Box, informing us of the
