tinroofrusted, I was going to use screens until Alejandra can handle topping on a peel but now I should mention I'm not adverse to using them for the kind of pies I'm doing. I suffer from a tremor (essential tremor) in my right hand which has always slowed me down somewhat topping wise and feel the screens help me. We work with what we have. In any case I will continue to use them for the 16 inchers.

The failed war on drug cartels as well as violence amongst themselves here has guaranteed the PRI candidate will easily win the next presidential election over PAN, the present party holding the office.
