Rain ~ Toys For Tots ~ Yogurt & Yams ~ Fox Pre Game At Mighty Mo ~ Sunday Football ~ Monday Football ~ Pearl Harbor


Good 46ยบ raining hard right now super dark dank morning. Another 1/4" since last night.
A reminder....Not much time left... Toys For Tots needs your help. Brian's State Farm Office
on Allen Creek Rd next to Haggen and McDonalds and The Vine is a drop off for toys.

Did you know that Toys for Tots is a top rated charity?
97% of your donation goes to our mission of providing toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children. The 3% spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses – not one donated dollar goes to pay for salaries or any other manpower costs.

 
How about this for breakfast with coffee...
I know some of you will say (my favorite expression, not!) "ewwwwww".... but, this is good. Cooked yam and plain yogurt. Even drizzled with a little honey would be good too! 

Interesting, yesterday's Fox pre game show at the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Missouri_(BB-63)





Brian and I both have a connection to this battle ship... I was born the day the peace treaty with Japan was signed aboard the ship and in the Gulf War Brian was with a Marine Corps Detachment aboard the Mighty Mo! Prior to the ship's departure to the Gulf, Brian gave me a personal tour of the ship! Man oh man, did those Squids step aside when he came through!
Here is history and a lot of photos of BB-63:

December 7th
Pearl Harbor Day

Pearl Harbor Day, commemorates the Japanese attack on the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor. The attack began at dawn December 7, 1941. It crippled the U.S. Pacific Fleet, and caused the U.S. to enter World War II.
During the attack at Pearl Harbor, over 2,400 American serviceman and 68 civilians were killed. Five of the eight battleships at Pearl Harbor were sunk or sinking, and virtually all ships were damaged.
On Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, U.S. flags are to be flown at half staff.
On December 8, 1941 President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated in a speech to Congress it was "..a day that will live in infamy". The U.S. then declared war on Japan.
And today is also National Cotton Candy Day

Cotton Candy is a popular summertime treat. That being the case, why do we celebrate this day in the middle of December? Good question.
The Cotton Candy machine was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. They brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, where is was quite popular. Cotton Candy is a favorite at amusement parks, circuses, fairs, and sports venues.    

Cotton Candy was originally called fairy floss. It is made from Floss (or Flossine) sugar.
