Rain ~ Visiting Bowlers ~ 10-5 ~ Taste of Cats ~ Rep/Dem Platforms ~ Donkey Leading Sheep ~ Guacamolé & Vodka ~ Apple Betty

Good 49º dark gloomy raining morning.

Yesterday was gloomy, drizzly, and stayed in the lower 60ºs. We topped at 64º when the rain started again about 2pm.
Friend Trish's hubby John Bowler (LASD ret) and their son Daryl are up here, to shop for a new car for Daryl's wife. They are enjoying the cool rainy weather, being from So. California ..... Nice change for them. They hit rain as soon as they crossed into Oregon.
Yesterday afternoon: 

While I was taking the photo, this guy was watching me!

Today is 10-5 and 10-5 radio code.... means "RELAY".

I cleaned out some cupboards and got rid of a bunch of "old" stuff that is not needed by me or anyone else! Always a good feeling!

Historically this date....

1955 – Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in AnaheimCalifornia.

1962 – Dr. No, the first in the James Bond film series, is released.

1962 – The Beatles first single, "Love Me Do" backed with "P.S. I Love You", is released in the United Kingdom.

And births this date include....

1902 – Ray Kroc, American fast food entrepreneur (d. 1984)

Imagine that, a man who started his own business without the help of the government!!!! (Are ya listening OVamit??) Oh, and Mr. Kroc was a Republican. Fancy that, an entrepreneurial Republican business owner! Wonder what he would have thought of this:

Click here: Obama: If You've Got A Business, You Didn't Build That - YouTube Oh yes, someone else built the roads so that is why you didn't build your business.... it was because of the roads!!! GAG ME. Heaven help us. That idiot in the White House makes me throw up!

1922 – Bil Keane, American cartoonist (d. 2011)

1924 – Bill Dana, American actor

1929 – Richard F. Gordon, Jr., American astronaut

1951 – Karen Allen, American actress

1962 – Michael Andretti, American race car driver
....his daddy makes some mighty fine wine up in Napa!

Interesting about cats...

Unlike other mammals, cats lack the proper genetic coding to experience sweet tastes. Cats have a mutant chemoreceptor in their taste buds that prevents them from tasting sweet things, which is actually a trait shared by all cats big and small, not just domestic ones. In 2005, scientists from the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, discovered that a genetic deficiency deletes the sugar detectors on the taste buds of a cat. In other words, cats do not possess the genetic hardware needed to taste sweets.

Saw a funny short film of a donkey heading the lead of a bunch of sheep.... hundreds of sheep!! LOL. Yep, that's Hill-liary all right!  

Later I remembered I had some avocados in the fridge so decided to make guacamolé.

I cut up the avocados and added in the spice along with some cilantro and granulated lemon, and mashed them up.

I drained the chiles and fire roasted tomatoes well and added the whole can of chiles and half the tomatoes...
Then....... since it was National Vodka Day I fixed a vodka rocks with lemon juice and had a snack!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Ok, T, you have to learn how to make the hummer juice!! 4 cups boiling water, set aside, stir in 1 cup sugar and let cool.

I know this weather is a great change for John and Daryl. Will have a photo for you!! (making Daryl smile!!!!)

Glad you watched the debate, I couldn't. xoxo

GOOD morning. Ray Kroc was a genuinely humble and generous man. He used his success to make life better for others. It is too bad he did not live to see his Padres succeed as his restaurants did.

Really? Boil water? John has never done that. Those birdies would starve to death if he did that. lol He fills the three feeders every day. That's all on him. I won't ever do it because then it would be MY job! :)

Looking forward to the photo!
