were not recorded due to the high humidity and the late hour at which we came home. I always taste and check for latex and/or gill color changes, but I don’t remember what those tests revealed. Just wanted to post them, and look for them again in 2014. I get lackadaisical sometimes.

Phil, any color change with the latex?

Or staining of context? Did you check the taste?
