    Oops. My mistake. I apparently missed that post. I guess it is a "Never mind me", then. I was wondering why no one called or emailed to find out, as you can see. Thanks for setting me straight. I will try to pay a bit more attention next time. :)

    JBinMN replied to a thread beeswax in Helping Hands
    Nice offer! That beeswax is likely as good as when ya got it back then being in an AC room. I think it has a extremely long "shelf Life" if maintained in a cool dry place. Someone could be a happy person. :) G'Luck! :)
