You can freeze rhubarb. Use only good quality rhubarb. If the stalks are fibrous, be sure to remove the stringy fibers. Clean the rhubarb and cut into ready to use pieces.
Use either freezer containers or freezer bags. If using containers allow enough headspace in the freezing containers or even in the bags before sealing to allow for expansion when the rhubarb freezes.
Place the rhubarb in the coldest part of the freezer so that they will freeze as quickly as possible. Store for up to 9 months.

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”
