Bob's Red Mill

Today's Oregonian had a great front page article. Here's the link if I figure out how to do it.

No haven't got it. Back to the Mac book  for me. I may figure out how to do it and it may miraculously appear.

Fixed your link for you. What you do is to select the text you want to have made into a link and then you have to click the little button that looks like a chain "link" in the top bar above your comment entry text input area (the one that has "B" for bold, I for italics, etc.) and then you put the URL you want the text to point to in that link url text field. The broken-chain button will "break" or undo the link and make it back to normal text.

Way to go, Bob.  That's awesome.

I read about this too. Three cheers esp in this climate of corporate greed.

Thanks for instruction. Between the curved arrow to the left  and the tree are three grayed out icons. I will give it a try. Oh the chain lit up. So I pasted the link in the little box. Now it's underlined and I hope working. I am sure I have missed a fine point or two. My try follows doesn't seem to work.

I've been making all my whole wheat bread with Bob's stone ground hard spring wheat flour and it makes a very nice loaf -- excellent flavor and tender crumb.  Now I can feel good about buying this brand for even more reasons.

I'm with Edith.  It's a good company, and now I'll feel even better about doing business with it.  And I'll be doing more business with it, I guess.

What a great gesture to his dedicated employees. He has quality products which I purchase all the time.

Admirable!

I have mentioned before here and a few other food oriented web places  this is exactly what the original owners of the King Arthur Flour Company did !  They are now a ESOP, that is a Employee Stock Ownership Program.  It is basically a retirement trust/retirement plan.  Its a great motivational tool and has many good (for the previous owner(s) tax savings.
