soft wools rather than itchy
I am not an expert on woolen fibers but I have a sense that a lot depends on the quality of the wool and how it is processed.
Cashmere is the warmest I believe and if the manufacturing is high quality most people do not find it itchy.

So My wife started to bake cookies when she discovered that there were bugs in our flour! Yuck! It was in an apparently sealed container, but the bugs were there nonetheless. Obviously eating the flour is out of the question. My question to everyone is can anyone think of a good disposal method such as composting, etc.?
Thanks in advance.

On the other hand I'm maxed out on what I can make here. Also my bosses are talking retirement. May be up to 5 years before they do retire but it's an eventuality here.
I want to get on at federal court at some point. They seem really happy there. My ideal would be my bosses retiring and my immediate starting at Fed Court. Those jobs don't open very often though. I've seen one opening there. So, I just saw an opening in probation/parole. I'm infinitely qualified. Income could potentially be double what I currently make.
So, I'm going to apply, even though it kills me to think about doing so. However, I am wanting to send a note with my application (which is to be emailed as per instructions so I can put it in the email body) which would basically say that I would like them to not tell my current boss (whom they definitely know) that I've applied as I ..... I don't know. What do I say? I love them and don't want to hurt them? Blah. I suppose I could be mature and just talk to my bosses about it ahead of time but I DONT WANNA

I just can't kill them unless they are suffering in some way. And as Jay said, the smarter the animal and the more personality, the harder it is. I have had to kill chickens that were injured or sick, and I really struggle, but it would be far harder to kill an animal like a pig or a dog. ...
I love all animals, especially right next to the mash potatoes. I have cats, have had dogs, quail, rabbits, ducks, horses, even snakes at one point. Love'm all. But one has to make the distinction between 'pets' and 'dinner'. I have killed dogs that were killing my stock. If I had to say which breed would be hardest to put down, its goats. Neighbor has them and they follow him and his wife like puppies.

First my eyes get caught by the illustrations. Most important is good photography, photos that make you want to start making that recipe, or eating that dish. In the past cookbooks used to have nice drawings too, now not so much anymore.
I like it when the recipe is clear; starting with the ingredients, neatly listed. I do not like it when a recipe is written like a story, or even like poetry. It has to explain what the cook has to do, nothing more ... but also nothing less. If there's a story to tell, it can be told at the end, after the recipe is finished. This is my opinion.

You are not wrong. There is just no way to dodge a CME, and perhaps time and effort is better spent elsewhere.
