  1. Love your show. I know you have a blueberry farm. Have you ever made blue strawberry jam? It comes out such a beautiful, rich colour. I make it every year and love it. There are other recipes around but I like the one I made up myself. It is 1/2 the strawberry jam recipe and 1/2 the blueberry recipe. Also I make the blueberry jam with cinnamon in it. Bye.

  2. Hi there! I never miss an episode of your show and love everything you guys do. Your chemistry on screen comes through as a really loving couple! You guys are an inspiration to all!

    On the last episode of the “Inn” Dave held a candlestick in his hand to show his brother and sister-in-law the way to the downstairs. Where on earth did you find the candlestick? I have been looking for many days and have been unable to find one?
