Yesterday's cocktail at news hour was mango rum on the rocks. YUMMMM...

Dinner... mostly an experiment. I bought a pre-cooked meatloaf. Mainly because I love meatloaf sandwiches and NOT in the mood to make one. Anyway, heated it. Then experimented with Grands biscuits, splitting them, adding ricotta cheese and parmesan. Then I cooked them in the waffle iron.

I topped some fresh spinach with a mixture of re-hydrated veggies mixed with olive oil and seasonings. It was a OMGOOD dinner, except the rolls didn't come out as I liked. Will work on that. Today will be slices of meatloaf on bread with mayonnaise and a ton of iceberg lettuce!
Later it was chair, wine, TV (3 Blue Bloods episodes) and more Paris news. Too sad.

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

The Story of the Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear
A replica of the original Teddy Bear.
Did you know that the Teddy Bear was invented in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt? It all began when Theodore Roosevelt was on a bear hunting trip near Onward, Mississippi on November 14, 1902. He had been invited by Mississippi Governor Andrew H. Longino, and unlike other hunters in the group, had not located a single bear.
Roosevelt's assistants, led by Holt Collier, a born slave and former Confederate cavalryman, cornered and tied a black bear to a willow tree. They summoned Roosevelt and suggested that he shoot it. Viewing this as extremely unsportsmanlike, Roosevelt refused to shoot the bear. The news of this event spread quickly through newspaper articles across the country. The articles recounted the story of the president who refused to shoot a bear. However, it was not just any president, it was Theodore Roosevelt the big game hunter!
Clifford Berryman's 1902 cartoon that lampooned T.R.'s bear hunt
A political cartoonist by the name of Clifford Berryman read the article and decided to lightheartedly lampoon the president's refusal to shoot the bear. Berryman's cartoon appeared in the Washington Post on November 16, 1902. A Brooklyn candy shop owner by the name of Morris Michtom saw the cartoon and had an idea. He and his wife Rose were also makers of stuffed animals, and Michtom decided to create a stuffed toy bear and dedicate it to the president who refused to shoot a bear. He called it 'Teddy's Bear'.
After receiving Roosevelt's permission to use his name, Michtom mass produced the toy bears which were so popular that he soon founded the Ideal Toy Company. To this day the Teddy Bear has worldwide popularity and its origin can be traced back to Theodore's fateful hunting trip in 1902.
Here's mine.....
