  You are absolutely right...I forgot to mention where I live! <blush>  I
live just north of the Dallas (TX) metroplex.  At the advice of some helpful
folks here, I went to my local Sam's Club to find out what they carried in
the way of yeast products.  Nothing.  I am pretty familiar with their baking
aisle, and they didn't have a thing in stock.  I also went to ask if they
would be carrying any yeast at all, and they said they could check into it
but usually whatever was out is what they have.  I'm not holding my breath.

  So, for you folks who have a Price Club or Sam's Club or whatever that
carries this stuff....consider yourself lucky!!  I guess I shall have to
find a good mail-order source (e.g., King Arthur).

Thanks very much for all your kind responses,
