Clouds ~ Veggies Steamed in Micro ~ Clean Golf Cart ~ Once Upon A Vine ~ Dry Spice Blends ~ Potential El Niño ~ Feral Cats and Alcohol Day

Good 53º cloudy morning.

We hit 100º yesterday. UGH. Kristen just said it's drizzly down in So. Cal. Checked the radar and we have a bit overhead but Vegas is getting hit HARD!

"10-16" = pick up prisoner

Breakfast yesterday...
First I took some broccoli/carrot/snap pea mix and steamed in the microwave for 2 minutes with a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of chicken stock. Then added on top a rerun of my 'veggie/sausage/pasta' from 10-4 ( ) and heated all for another 2 minutes. That and a piece of SF sourdough w/ Clearman's cheese spread. Voilá! YUUMMMMMMM...

Exciting day... vacuumed out the car and washed my golf cart! Clean, finally!!! Been awhile!!

Dude watched and kept and eye on things!

I finished a bottle of wine Nancy gave me. Loved the name!

I had the chardonnay. REALLY good!!!! A 2011 Sonama wine.
From Ellen (Naugle) Pantalone.... LOL
Someone asked an old man: “Even after 70 years, you still call your wife – Darling, Honey, Luv.  What’s the secret?"
Old man: I forgot her name and I’m scared to ask
Here is an interesting idea... how to mix dry spice blends:
I printed this and taped it inside my spice cupboard door.  

Historically this date...
1923 – The Walt Disney Company is founded by Walt Disney and his brother, Roy Disney.

1962 – Cuban Missile Crisis between the United States, and Cuba and the USSR, begins.

2006 – Hawaii Earthquake: A magnitude 6.7 earthquake rocks Hawaii, causing property damage, injuries, landslidespower outages, and the closure of Honolulu International Airport.

And births this date include....
1535 – Niwa Nagahide, Japanese warlord (d. 1585)
....Hmmm... thought he made seat covers!

1758 – Noah Webster, American lexicographer (d. 1843)
...our dictionary hero!

1885 – Alfred Braunschweiger, German diver and Olympic medalist.  (d. 1952)
... you mean he didn't make liver sausage???
1946 – Suzanne Somers, American actress

1958 – Tim Robbins, American actor, director, and writer.
A So. Cal boy, born in W. Covina!
Dinner was reruns. TV (Chicago PD), chair, wine.
The LA Times has published this story on El Niño. The draught has been BAD, but this winter in CA will be HORRIBLE. Stand by:

1998: Solimar Beach, Ventura CA   YIKES!!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao

October 16th
National Feral Cat Day
My "feral cat" .. for 4½ years in my pasture ...Now:
"my" rocking chair is now Bruiser's rocking chair!

I wrote this about him 3 years ago:
Yesterday morning I went out on the porch to feed Bruiser and he snuck in the house while the screen door was closing. He's so funny... he runs like mad from room to room. Jumps on the dining room chairs, runs into my bedroom and hides under the bed. I put Harley in the bathroom and closed the door to avoid any confrontations. I went to my desk and he came in and jumped on the desk, altering computer stuff since he walked on the keyboard! He purrrred and then went outside. Nut case. Wants to be included.
AND it's National Liquor Day
Here are my favorites.....

360 Vodka.... I like the Sorento Lemon, Mandarin Orange, and the Buttered Popcorn!
SinFire Whiskey (made in Oregon!) and José

And one of my favorite drinks is a dirty martini!

Good morning.

We got some rain in the overnight. Believe the Grapevine got slammed.

Think I'm going to have to come back in the afternoon to read that much about liquor. Haven't made rum cake in forever. That sounds better before coffee):-
