I posted this last year, but it's funny so here it is again:

From Dan in Texas:
A recent study found that the average American
walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found that the average American
drinks about 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means the average American gets about
41 miles to a gallon! Makes you damned proud to
be an American.

Riggs was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1988. He founded the Bobby Riggs Tennis Museum Foundation to increase awareness of the disease. Riggs died of cancer October 25, 1995, in Encinitas, California, aged 77.

In his final days, Riggs maintained friendly contact with Billie Jean King, and King phoned him often. She called him shortly before his death, offering to visit him, but he did not want her to see him in his condition. She phoned him one last time, the night before his death and, according to Billie Jean herself in an HBO documentary about her, the last thing she told Riggs was "I love you."

Yesterday was kitchen projects day. First, JoAnn had given me a bag of pears. So I cut them up and cored them and put them in jars and filled the jars with vodka. They will sit and infuse for about 2 weeks. At the end of a week I will add a cinnamon stick to a couple of the jars. Will give them a taste test and let you know...

Then I dove into the 10 pounds of tomatoes Jeannie and Bill gave me... cored, cut, cooked, strained, and added basil, onion, garlic, loads of mushrooms, and a couple cups (comes in little boxes) of Cucina & Amore
super yummy 'made in Italy' with Greek Kalamata olives, Italian green olives, capers, and parsley marinara sauce.. just for added flavor ... and canned the sauce.....

All I know. Happy Thursday. Gotta wrap Tucker's birthday presents! Ciao.
