      >> Each year at this time, without fail, I am reminded of a meeting in
      >> Racine,
      >> WI, about twenty years ago when Joe Liles introduced me to "Kringles."
      >> These Danish pastries have been special to Racine since the Danish bakers
      >> introduced them there in the late 1800s. Butter layered and almond

      >> for only a matter of hours. Lars woke from a deep sleep and sniffed the
      >> aroma of freshly baked kringles his wife had just brought home from the
      >> bakery. Wit that, Lars was rejuvenated. "If I could just have one last
      >> piece
      >> of kringle before I die, all would be well.
      >> Pulling together all his remaining strength, he slowly he made his way
      >> down
      >> the stairs, into the kitchen, and over to the two kringles on the
      >> counter.
      >> Just as he was reaching over to take a piece, his wife walked into the
      >> room,
      >> swatted his hand away and exclaimed:
      >> "Don't touch that!" "We're saving these for your funeral."
