sudsy times

it seems as though relatives may think alike, even if they are not twins. my brother, richard, and myself, have independently both decided to make soap for interest and gifting sake, his seemingly more sucessful than mine...i ended up with a sludgy and (expensive) failure. faulty scales and boundless enthusiasm may ahve been my problem. richard and i now live provinces apart, and he is certainly very methodical in his approach to such, i had to restrain a very excited co-soaper from adding the kitchen sink to our mix. very fun, my adventure with fat and lye, what with some red wine and many cooks added to the mix, but sadly, goopy and harsh was the product. talked with him at length about the problems....should be able to clamber over them on next attempt...
