Bill, I've been meaning to tell you that an Italian friend gave me a bag of hazelnuts from her grandparents' trees. I've put them in a bowl with a small toy squirrel and I'm rationing them as they are so special and delicious. So every afternoon, ritually, I crack six of them and have them with my cottage cheese and apple. If one or two of the shells are empty, well, that's the luck of the draw and I don't try any more. Having to crack them is very civilised. This is working really well and I'm finding that I'm not tempted to have any other extra nuts during the day. There are one or two in my breakfast muesli and that's it.
