    Hey Bear, At long last I was able to make your Sticky Pork Ribs. The wife and I loved them! The cinnamon and anise in the 5 star spice mix give the sauce a sweet flavor that is uncommon and very good! Thanks again for posting it at my request.
    I was just now looking at your photos. Your whole famn damly is fuzzy!!
    Take care.
