March 22nd
National Goof Off Day

Now here's a day that just about everybody can relax and enjoy. It's a day to do anything and everything.....except what you're supposed to do today.
Assuming you won't get in trouble at work or school, go ahead and play some golf, or play games all day. Spend extra time surfing the net. Go out and spend the day window shopping with your favorite friend. Or, just read sit down and read a book or watch Tv. This day is set aside for you to do anything you enjoy doing.

A few years ago, a survey was performed to identify the most popular activity for goofing off. The top activity was playing video games. Who conducted the survey? surprise. It kinda makes you wonder just who might have had the brainstorm to create this day......hmmmm. Nowadays, the most popular Goof Off Day activity is likely playing games on the internet, or on our Smart Phones.

National French Bread Day is enjoyed by millions across the United States each year on March 21st.
French bread, also known as a baguette, is a long thin loaf made from basic lean dough. It is defined by its length and its crisp crust. Over time, French law has established what is and what is not a baguette.  Beginning in 1920 a labor law prevented bakers from starting their day before 4 a.m.  Bakers adjusted by shaping their loaves of bread, so they baked more quickly and evenly.  As a result, the long, narrow loaves were found to be convenient for slicing and storing.

SPRING! ~ WD-40 ~ Sun & Rain ~ Brian/Sami/Kristen/Alex/Jack ~ 1960's Quiz ~ Sandy & Jerom ~ Peanut Butter Pound Cake ~ Ravioli Day

Good 53º foggy morning.
Today is the first day of Spring....

The March equinox is today, March 20, 2017 at 6:29 A.M. EDT.
Astronomically speaking, the equinox falls on March 19 or 20 every year, marking spring’s beginning in the Northern Hemisphere (whereas it announces fall’s arrival in the Southern Hemisphere). The equinox happens at the same moment worldwide, even if our clock times reflect a different time zone.

Ok, since Spring is here, these are good tips from WD-40:
Time to get that spring cleaning checklist ready. To make this year’s cleaning a little easier, pick up a can of WD-40® Multi-Use Product and use it to:
Remove gunk and grime from sliding window and door tracks
Lubricate vacuum cleaner wheels
Shine stainless steel appliances
Plus, my favorite is to spray the engine compartment of your vehicle to keep critters from chewing on the soy based wire coating under there. Thanks to Barry Perrou (LASD ret.) for that bit of wisdom as it cost me $750 to have my wiring harness on my last car replaced due to it being chewed on. Now, no more of those problems!!!

Yesterday we did get sun in 5 minute spurts about 5 or 6 times.  "Chance of rain" for most all of this next week. Rain started in about 5:30 pm and we got 1/4". Just prior to that the clouds were beautiful...

The turkeys arrived late in the morning. and held down the bridge out back...

Sorry, that's my clothesline in the way!
Brian and Sami went to Disneyland for the weekend and met up with Kristen, Alex, and Jack for breakfast yesterday at Downtown Disney ( This apparently is a shopping and eating area outside of Disneyland, that I have never been to...

I graduated high school in the 60's, got married in the 60's, became a mom in the 60's. I aced this!! See if you can.

Today my high school pal Sandy (Todoran) and her hubby Jerome Beck celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids! xo

March 20th


National Ravioli Day is observed each year on March 20th.  As one of the food holidays, it is very popular with pasta lovers.

Ravioli are a traditional type of Italian filled pasta, made up of a filling sealed between two layers of thin egg pasta dough. The ravioli are usually served in either a broth or with a pasta sauce.  A variety of filling recipes are available from cheesy to meaty.
Served often as the main course, ravioli can also be a side dish or even an appetizer. Many popular recipes bake or deep fry the ravioli. With chocolate added to the pasta or cream cheese stuffing and a caramel sauce, the dish quickly becomes a dessert!
Ravioli can be homemade or may be purchased fresh or frozen in grocery stores.  In the United States, Chef Boyardee popularized the canned ravioli.  This ravioli is filled with either beef or processed cheese and served in a tomato, tomato-meat or tomato-cheese sauce.  St. Louis, Missouri is where the toasted ravioli got its start.

I love to take the fresh refrigerated ravioli and fry it crispy, then use a marinara sauce for dipping. Reallllllly good!!!

And now with my Air Fryer, this will be great!
