Good 58º with 58% humidity clear sunny morning. Hit 100º yesterday. UGH.
Remember when I made the rice/farro/veggie/chicken dish and then said "breakfast"? Well, here was yesterday's breakfast...
It was great and I felt as if I was eating things so good for me!
Yesterday as I sat at my desk the Bruise decided he needed attention so he jumps up on my desk! Then he proceeds to play with the computer mouse! But mom, it's a MOUSE!
And then a nap on top of the mouse!
This from a friend, Pat Reardon (LASD ret) and I think it originally came to Pat from George B .. it's a you tube video of a broadcast on Muslim TV. These guys know what is happening with OVamit! They know more than the liberalists in this country!!!
Yesterday was our former Sheriff Sherman Block's birthday. His daughter Barbara posted this on FaceBook:
In 1924 many things happened that became part of history. Calvin Coolidge won the presidential election, Goldwyn & Mayer film studios merged, The Ten Commandments movie was released and on July 19th Sherman Block was born. Dad, tomorrow is your birthday and had you lived you would be 91. There isn't a day that you are not in my thoughts. You accomplished so much in your 74 years; you had a genius IQ, graduated every level of education with honors (receiving an honorary doctorate from Pepperdine), served your country during WWII, remained by my side my entire life in good times and bad, and became one of the greatest and most respected law enforcement professionals in this country and the world would ever know. You came to ingratiate yourself to so many people in all walks of life. Most importantly you earned the honor of being the best father I could ever have. God bless you dad. I hope you are resting in peace.

I looked out and here was this doe eating the grape leaves..
After that she went over to the shade by the water tubs and took a rest. I didn't take her picture because I might have scared her opening the blinds.
Later I made some Red Lobster muffins.
Dinner was at Jennifer's. She made a stuffed flank steak, Mike cooked it on the bbq. I brought the muffins and some wine. Oh and also dog treats!

National Lollipop Day
George Smith, owner of Bradley Smith Company, invented and patented the Lollipop in 1908. Legend has it, that George named the Lollipop after his favorite racehorse " Lolly Pop".
The Racine Confectioner's Machinery Company claims to have created National Lollipop Day.
There is a little controversy as to who first created the automated Lollipop machine. The Racine Confectioner's Machinery Company claims to be the first to create a machine to automatically make Lollipops. Their machine made 40 lollipops at a time. Sam Born of California also claims to have created the first automated lollipop machine, in 1916. It was called the "Born Sucker Machine".
There is no congressional record, nor presidential proclamation, which is required to make this a "national" day.
