    Why Can You Dutch Oven But I Can't

    So, in another story I shared my getting older problem with flatulence.  For many years my husband for some unknow reason to me thought that it was funny to "fart" in bed and cover my head with the blankets. So, as my age problem began to not go away; I decided...
