I found this book in a thrift store sale - 4 books for $1.  I 
had not heard of this couple before.  Anyone familiar with
them?  The book has some interesting information but some 
of it seems dated.

  1. I've never heard of either of these people, but "Carry A Bag" sounds familiar. At least if you only get one or two ideas out of it, you still got your money's worth! Great find in my opinion.
