After 20 years, King Arthur Flour changed its name to King Arthur Baking Company – makes sense to me!



My husband and I lived in Melbourne Australia from 2003 – 2006 and thus flew with Qantas quite a bit back and forth to the US.

Back in July, the Qantas 747 fleet marked the end of their 49 years of service with a cool message across the Pacific.  Pretty amazing.
