True stash
The ball of yarn above is 3,000 years old. For much of its existence, it has been buried underground, in boggy land, along with the rest of the remains of three small houses built millennia ago, near what's now Cambridge, England.

Ever since archaeologists discovered Must Farm, which has been called Britain's Pompeii, they have been uncovering small clues as to what life was like for the families that lived here. This ball of yarn is one of the most delicate finds--extraordinary in its survival over all these years.

I was thinking some of mine might be close to that old, +CathiBea Stevenson :-) This was obviously a case of having more yarn than you can knit in a lifetime.

I guess you don't understand how our Government works. Congress is empowered to spend (budgets), the Executive Branch is not. Those lowered deficits were due to the Congresses at the time (both happened to be GOP controlled).

Jerked my arm while plasma donating, had to stop. Yes, you really do need the chest covered as well as the legs (I declined the 2nd blanket, foolishly it turned out ). I did get 2/3 of the donation done.
