Good 54º  sparse clouds and 100º predicted for the day. It's a full moon so be careful out there! Go to this site and find out the moonrise time for your zip code:
Supposed to remain somewhat cloudy today and thunder showers are expected tomorrow and Wednesday.

Much as I liked the Clint Eastwood "Twilight Years" piece, it's not true.... Thanks Ed... 

I did like this part though: I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!

Those are my sentiments exactly! Whomever wrote it was right on!

My high school pal Annalee and her husband Led are now partners in a winery in San Louis Obispo.

Check out their website...

A couple years back I went to a gathering with friends and brought fresh corn on the cob. I mixed a package of Lawry's Taco Seasoning with mayonnaise and we spread it on the cooked corn. Everyone loved it! Try something new besides butter!!!

Or slather on some mayonnaise and sprinkle on grated Parmesan cheese! OMG!

On this date in 1980 my nephew Dr. Joe and his bride Denise were married. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!!!

Historically and birthdays of famous people....

Ok, now this is awesome... pet personalities.... from Deeewayne Pberger... Thanks for the smiles Deeeeewayne Honneeee....

Yesterday's breakfast... white cheddar rice cakes, egg salad from eggs from Nancy and Dave's chickens, and one of Bill and Jeannie's awesome tomatoes! Thanks friends!!!

And... last night's dinner was an Omaha Steak breaded veal patty, some couscous/quinoa veggie mixture I had made and frozen, and some of Jeannie's cherry tomatoes. OMGOOOOOD!!! The veal patty you can either thaw and fry in a little olive oil or bake in the oven. I chose to fry it!

Excitement was rampant yesterday. I cleaned up my desk, went through the check register, paid a couple on line bills, vacuumed, and did 3 loads of laundry. Whoop.

I saw a deer go from the side of the house to the backyard. She has a bad back leg and was limping. Sigh............ I felt so bad. Then came into the kitchen and there was another doe and a little buck in the front yard. She found one of my plants she liked and sniffed the bird feeder. 

The quail were also back again, but no pictures. They move fast!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

National S'mores Day

S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!
National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately observed in August...campfire prime time. Don't limit your consumption of S'mores to the campfire. They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven, or microwave.
The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be chocolaty delicious.  Before long, S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"
While much is written about National S'mores Day, our research has been unable to verify that this is an officially recognized national day (which requires an act of Congress). Don't let that stop you from celebrating this day with a few S'mores.

But, what about a S'more Pie!!!
