re: Comfortable masks for long travel. - hungryone
Fit is incredibly important. I have a long, high-bridged French nose, and my kind friend gave me some cute handmade cloth masks...alas, my schnoz doesn't fit in them. If I tie tight enough to be secure, the end of my nose is abraded by the fabric within 20 mins. The cheap paper pleated surg masks...

re: Search for best-tasting tomato leads New Orleans restaurateur to LSU AgCenter - hungryone
