I got both ...... I examined each one and then tossed them.  I love the Missouri Conservation calendar and have used only it since I think  1994 - lol.  
It's so beautiful and so full of valuable information.  I always buy 3  and use the extras for an emergency Christmas present

Judy,  It was me!!  Betty Crocker emailed me after I emailed them and told me I
would not be getting a calendar.  I got the Betty Crocker one before my Pillsbury
one. Both of mine are hanging on the wall.  I like to look at food pictures. I don't
like that Pillsbury always uses their products in their recipes on the calendar.
I don't know why I got the BC calendar after they told me I wasan't going to get
one.  I'm just glad I got one.

I've gotten one every year, except this year.  They told me they were out of them.  I did respond to them, as I do every year, but they told me I  didn't.  So.....No calendars this year.

Very Best Baking should put one out.  That would be great!!!!!!!

I also was told that I did not respond Cry. I bought 1 at the hardware store & I am going to buy another one, I like to have 2 of them. Years ago I would get several of them free & now I have to buy them.

You can get calendars from groups you support, for example, The Humane Society.  Also our bank has a great one.

Whenever they use their own products in recipes and I don't buy certain products I substitute. I use bisquick and make my own biscuits etc. Some recipes are fun and a lot of people have lives too busy to not take shortcuts.

I get a lot of calendars from the various charities I support.  Like to look at the Food ones, even if I don't make the recipes.

The local Sheriffs' Association used to send out small - 5 x 7 - magnetic calendars to members to use on the refrigerator.  I loved that thing.  This year I renewed my membership, received the auto bumper stickersm but no calendar.

I've sent $$ to national Wild Life and got a calendar from them.  Also got one from World wild life and one from Sea Life.  They all have beautiful pictures.  I have not bought a MO conservation calendar the last couple years but I have many times in the past and love them.  The pictures are lovely and I like to see what happens on each day.  Nancy will know what I mean, but for the rest of you, on each day it tells what birds arrive or depart, when certain animals have their young etc.

I get so many calendars (no longer Natl Wildlife) .  Those produced by the state conservation's are always the best.  ..... and  IMHO  Missouri is the very best of those.   And I think the price is $5 each!!!
