Hi, Suey!

I have been reading your comments with great interest.  I do wish to tell you that
you should read the Food Time Line that you list below with skepticism, as many of
the items on that website are inaccurate.  While not everything is wrong on that website,
there are enough errors to give me pause and to warn people to check their "facts" elsewhere
before taking anything they say as correct.
