10-22 The Idiot ~ Sunset Solar Eclipse ~ Guacamolé ~ Salmon Filet ~ Nuts

Good 51º still too dark to see morning. Yesterday it hit 68º barely for a few minutes then slipped back down to 67º. Had some rain. More on the way... for the moment the radar is on the east and the west, but not overhead ....

10-22 in radio speak means "cancel".

Listen to the end. It's only 1 minute. (Thanks Ron W!)
Wish we could 10-22 this idiot:

We will be having a Sunset Solar Eclipse tomorrow...
NASA Science News for October 2014:
On October 23rd, the Moon will pass in front of the sun, off-center, producing a partial solar eclipse visible in most of the United States. Watch the video... so interesting!  

Read about it here and also click on the video on this site STORY:
Historically this date...
1836 – Sam Houston is inaugurated as the first President of the Republic of Texas.
.... I so wanted to have a son with Jerry (a Texan) and name him Sam Houston Maxwell! I know. I'm weird.  But, as it turns out I have a granddaughter named Samantha....  Sami! So, got my Sam finally!

1879 – Using a filament of carbonized thread, Thomas Edison tests the first practical electric incandescent light bulb (it lasted 13½ hours before burning out).
.... what a brilliant (smile) man. Thank you Mr. Edison!

1962 – Cuban Missile Crisis: US President John F. Kennedy, after internal counsel fromDwight D. Eisenhower, announces that American reconnaissance planes have discovered Soviet nuclear weapons in Cuba, and that he has ordered a naval "quarantine" of the Communist nation.

1976 – Red Dye No. 4 is banned by the US Food and Drug Administration after it is discovered that it causes tumors in the bladders of dogs. The dye is still used in Canada.

1983 – Two correctional officers are killed by inmates at the United States Penitentiary inMarion, Illinois. The incident inspires the Supermax model of prisons.

... And births this date include....
1734 – Daniel Boone, American pioneer and hunter (d. 1820)

1903 – Curly Howard, American actor and comedian, member of the Three Stooges (d. 1952)

...OMG, he died in San Gabriel and is buried in a cemetery in ELA.

1917 – Joan Fontaine, American actress (d.2013)

Sad, a life long feud with her sister, Olivia de Havilland. 
1938 – Christopher Lloyd, American actor

1942 – Annette Funicello, American actress (d.2013)

1943 – Catherine Deneuve, French actress

I always thought she was one of the world's MOST beautiful women!

1948 – Lynette Fromme, American attempted assassin of Gerald Ford 

What a pathetic waste of a life... 34 years in jail.
Yesterday I had some ripe avocados in the fridge so decided to make some guacamolé. I cut, seeded, and cut into strips the avocados. The skin peels off way much easier if they are in quarters.

 Mashed the avocados, added some Hickory (low sodium) Bacon Salt ( ) and Costco (Kirkland) bacon crumbles..

Next was some cheese and Lemon Sea Salt Flakes
Dinner... I roasted a piece of salmon Dave and PJ gave me. 400º for 25 minutes. Drizzled on olive oil, pepper, and some lemon sea salt. Sauteéd some sliced mushrooms and piled on the guacamolé! OUTSTANDINGLY GOOD!!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

National Nut Day is today. It's a little kooky and crazy if you ask me.
One can go a little bit batty contemplating the meaning of this day. Our research came up empty on information about this day. So, we can't be certain as to the meaning of this very nutty day. There are two very obvious possibilities:
1. This day honors (???) all of the nutty people in the world. It gives recognition to all the kooks, loony birds and daffy people in your life. Show them you care today.

2. This day celebrates nutritious and healthy nuts (food) of all kinds. Celebrate today by eating lots of nuts, either as a snack, or in baked goods.  May we suggest Chocolate Almond Ice Cream? 
Of course it is always possible that this day celebrates the "Nut" that screws onto a bolt for fastening things.

A couple of nutty facts:
  • Peanuts are not really nuts. They are Legumes, a member of the "Pea" family.
  • The center of seeds, like pumpkins and squash, is called a "nut".
Have a happy National Nut Day !!
