Turkeys ~ Fog ~ Dude ~ TBT ~ Halloween Stuff ~ Saved Kitten ~ Awwww Nuts!

Good 45º and cloudy morning. A "chance" of precipitation..

"10-22" = cancel  (or... 'forgetaboutit!)

Yesterday's breakfast... Egg-Tastic eggs with 2 stalks chopped celery, a spoonful of red onion and diced tomato, and some grated cheese. Microwave on high 1 minute, stir, microwave another minute and let sit for a minute. OMGOOOD!!! And a cheddar rice cake with artichoke spinach dip on it!

After Dude has his breakfast he and the Bruise love going outside to do their "duty". I was watching the turkeys.....

It stayed cool and foggy all morning .... by noon it was sunny and 63º.

Throw Back Thursday.... Sami then....

Sami now...

Leah Thomas posted this on her FB page... funny!

Here is the stuff I got at the Halloween Store:
Earrings for me...

A kit to decorate my pumpkin so I don't have to carve it...

And a hand to hang out the back of my vehicle... and a spider.

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.
This is the greatest video... a gal on a motorcycle with a helmet camera, rescues a little kitten ...

Later I caught up on a bunch of Blue Bloods episodes I had recorded. The DirecTV guy is coming today to give me an updated box that shows 'high def', so I had to see what I had recorded before he takes my old one away. Bout it. Chair, TV, and some saké! Reruns for dinner.

Thursday night football...... 

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

National Nut Day

Nuts are a good protein food. Yes, they have fats, but largely unsaturated, heart-healthy fats which have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol. Researchers have found that people who eat nuts regularly have lower risks of heart disease.*
*See the 1996, the Iowa Women's Healthy Study, the Harvard School of Public Health study and the 2002, the Physician's Health Study.

That makes nuts a heart-healthy food. In 2003, the FDA approved the following claim for seven different types of nuts, which contain less than 4g of saturated fats per 50g:
“Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 oz per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
The “Magnificent Seven” of nuts include:
  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Peanuts
  • Pecans
  • Pine nuts
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts
These varieties of nut contain less than 4g of saturated fats per 50g. If certain favorites aren’t on the list—for example, macadamia nuts—it’s because they’re higher in saturated fat (the bad fat).
The Magnificent Seven contain heart health benefits, including:
  • Fiber, part of all nuts, which helps to lower cholesterol and may play a role in preventing diabetes.
  • L-arginine, which an amino acid that may make artery walls more flexible and thus less prone to blood clots that can create heart attacks.
  • Omega-fatty acids, which, among other heart benefits, prevent dangerous heart rhythms that can lead to heart attacks.
  • Plant sterols, which help to lower cholesterol.
  • Unsaturated fats, which are believed to lower cholesterol levels.
  • Vitamin E, which may help stop the development of plaques in your arteries and prevent coronary artery disease or a heart attack.
Of course, you can have other types of nuts. You’ll just get less monounsaturated(good) fat and more saturated (bad) fat.
No matter which nuts you choose, the key is to limit your intake to one to two ounces of unsalted nuts per day. Measure at home and learn what an ounce ofpeanuts looks like. Emptying the peanut bowl may deliver lots of protein, but at a calorie count that is not “healthy eating.”

Sami has grown into such a big girl and oh so talented too. So cute that she drives your cart.

Speaking of basting turkey with wine....Becky's mom never has wine in the house except for when she's cooking a turkey. Then she cooks it in White Zin. To funny.

I haven't had time to use my Eggtastic yet. I have to read some more about it. Today I will make Eggs Benedict.:)
