Contrails ~ Miss P ~ Bread Waffle ~ Mr. & Mrs Gander ~ Artist of Tahoe Mel ~ Wine!


Good 37ยบ foggy foggy morning. But yesterday the sun came out and all the pretty blue sky showed off a bunch of neat contrails...


I see that a Bagel named Miss P won the Westminister Kennel Club Show yesterday...
A "cousin" of the dog the OVamit's have was in the show and also that beeeeotch Patty Hearst had a dog in the show.
But Miss P the Princess won!
 
 
Yesterday for breakfast it was an experiment...
I took that loaf of Cranberry Walnut bread I got at Costco, cut off a slice and cut it in half. Turned on the waffle iron and sprayed it well with cooking spray.
Then I drizzled on some half and half on the bread, both sides, and sprayed I Can't Believe It's Not Butter on both sides.

Put them in the waffle iron and (with a pot holder) I pressed down hard on the top until it flattened out.

Cooked until steam quit.
On each piece I drizzled on some of the Laney Cranberry Blossom Honey... (www.laneyhoney.com
                                             OMGOOOOOOOOOOD!!!  

 
Prior to breakfast Dude went out, I fed the birds, and called to "my" geese.... "Here goosie goose. Here goosie goose." and they come a waddling...

February 18th
National Drink Wine Day (YEAH!!!)

I always drink wine with someone or alone.



Today is Drink Wine Day! Pop the cork and enjoy a refreshing glass of Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot, Shiraz, or Zinfandel in honor of the occasion!
People have been producing wine since at least 6000 B.C. There are dozens of ancient legends about humans who accidentally consumed fermented grapes and became intoxicated, which is probably how wine was first conceived. Eventually, people began experimenting with the fermentation process. The methods for making wine spread from the region of Mesopotamia to Egypt, Greece, Rome, France, Spain, and eventually the New World. Today, over 20 million acres of the earth’s surface are dedicated to growing grapes for wine.
Studies have shown that drinking a glass of wine a day improves heart health, reduces forgetfulness, boosts immunity, and increases bone density. To celebrate Drink Wine Day, check out a local winery, send your friends a virtual toast with a free eCard, or host an impromptu wine tasting! Cheers!
