Default Ken Schramm (off-topic)

I just wanted to let you all know that Ken's wife posted on Facebook that Ken's surgery went well and he's doing well. He had a heart procedure today. He's in ICU, but they expect to remove the breathing tube this evening.

For those of you who don't know him, except as one of our "imaginary friends", or have a copy of The Compleat Meadmaker, maybe raise a glass of mead to his health tonight.

Really glad he's gotten through the first part (surgery)! Got his book sitting right by me here...just referenced it again this past week, and I've been making mead for almost 6 years!

I "talked" to him last night on Facebook. He's still in the hospital, but everything is going well and he's going a bit stir crazy. He should be back to his old self soon, from the sounds of it!
