Weather ~ Kashi ~ Ducks! ~ Ladybug Cherry Tomatoes ~ Baby & Maggie

Good 59º very cloudy morning. We did get minimal rain and thunder late yesterday afternoon. Lasted all of 10 minutes!


My friend Joan Petit-Clair sent these "Stupidity" sayings, I will share this one with you:

"Only in this stupid world .... do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke."

Ok, I'll bring on one more....

"Only in this stupid world..... do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering."

I tried a new cereal ... Kashi Indigo Morning

It is a blend of puffed golden corn flakes with real blueberries and blackberries, all natural, and NO sugar. Really good!

This is hilarious. Nothing like you would ever see in this country!


Now how about this for hors d'oeuvres?

Here is a super fascinating blog. You have to scroll and scroll through the zillions of great ideas here.....

I found this blog via this picture on FB....

How to is here:

Cherry tomatoes, black olives....on sliced baguettes, cream cheese, smoked salmon.... the black spots are chopped olives, the eyes are cream cheese applied with a toothpick, and the antennas are stems of flat leaf parsley. Now, how fun is that!

National Caviar Day
The expen$ive Russian Beluga Caviar is awesome. Can't compare to the stuff we get here in the market. Had it once or twice. Starts the drool button!


Caviar, sometimes called black caviar, is a luxury delicacy, consisting of processed, salted, non-fertilized sturgeon roe. The word caviar originates from the Turkish khavyar, first appearing in English print in 1591. The four main types of caviar are Beluga, Sterlet, Ossetra, and Sevruga. The rarest and costliest is from the beluga sturgeon that swim in the Caspian Sea, which is bordered by Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan.
