      Hi Kerri,

      I've been at a conference so a bit delayed, but here are your edits.

      HTML looks good!

      Comment: up at the top you say you will call it the kettle, and in
      places you call it the Glacier - might want to add that nickname in as
      well above, or be consistent with what you have stated you will call
      the kettle.

      Edit: the wording here is a bit off to my "ear" - I'm looking in
      particular at the phrasing "capable of nesting" and then the next
      sentence just sounds circumlocutory and roundabout. Suggest
      simplifying this to something along the lines of "The kettle is big
      enough that I can nest a ... I will probably use the kettle for
      storing other things, such as my bowl, spork, pack towel, etc. "

      EDIT: don't forget the conversion here.

      EDIT: Need a space between that and remains.

      See you in a couple of months! Happy boiling.
