    Good quotes from a good book. Doing a remodel one time, I cut into a dead space in a wall and found a Dunkin Donuts bag that had been sealed in there for 5+ years. The donut inside was dehydrated, but otherwise perfect. No rotting, shriveling, or mold. Pretty gross.

      That’s hilarious Grant. You just needed to dunk them in a little hot chocolate and they’d be fine!
