Are you superstitious? Then, Friday the 13th is a day you may look forward to with fear! Friday the 13th, is an unlucky day, a day when bad things can happen. Whatever you do, don't walk under a ladder, and don't let a black cat cross your path on this day.
Throughout most of recorded history, the number 13 has been seen as an unlucky number. If you live in fear of the number 13, you suffer from Triskaidekaphobia. More phobias of interest.
Historically, and perhaps a bit oddly in today's world, Friday has been viewed as an unlucky day of the week. We find this hard to fathom. After all, Friday is TGIF!! However, in days gone by, when you put the unlucky day of Friday, together with the unlucky #13, many people believe only bad things can happen.
Interestingly, there is a sizable number of optimists, who embrace Friday the 13th and the number 13. They shrug off the superstition and go buy lottery tickets with the number 13 in it.
Perfectly timed photo!

This video was on our local news Wednesday.... a police officer untangles a baby goose (gosling) from a balloon string while the worried Momma Goose keeps and eye on her...

I can certainly understand why all 3 of his wives divorced him, but what I don't understand is why they married the creep in the first place! Money? Fame?
Yesterday was a busy day. First I had a mammo. Two girls were in the room with me, one was in training. Both super sweet and Republicans! We had a fun conversation and I told them about my pal, Trish, who has been selected to be a delegate at the Republican National Convention! Her son Daryl was picked to be an alternate. They were very excited about that. Next I went to Costco. I had a ginormous list! Brian wanted me to get him a float...
It's really nice and will hold 5 or 6 people. He's going to get an anchor for it. They will take it up to Roseburg this summer. High school friends Linda (Watterlond) and Joe Terror have a place up there on the South Umpqua River and have told them they can stay there. The river is calm, so a good place for a float! 

So I got all the stuff on my list, all the stuff on Brian's list, and most all the stuff on Jennifer's list. Was going to stop at In-N-Out to get my dinner to go, but it was getting late and Jennifer left work soon so I had to get there to deliver her "stuff". Fortunately I picked up a Costco Asian Chicken Wrap and had that to munch!

They used to have the Shrimp Wraps, but don't anymore. DARN!
After unloading my car I was totally exhausted. Chair, wine, chicken wrap, TV, nap!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

International Hummus Day 


International Hummus Day started from Hummus Day, a special event launched by a young entrepreneur Ben Lang. He decided to make a holiday, that could bring together all people from the Middle East and promote Israel. He chosen it to be a food holiday, hummus in particular, because it's very popular in Middle Eastern cuisine.
The observance was started in 2012 and it spread to many other countries. However, the origin of this day is in Israel, where the most famous hummus place, Abu Gosh, gave out free hummus for all day long.
Annually around 85,000 people participate in celebration of International Hummus Day by eating hummus at home or going to locations, where hummus is served. They also share photos in Instagram and tweet about Hummus Day using hashtag #hummusday.
Here are some great hummus recipes....
I like making hummus and often will pesto in it. Any flavors you like will work. Even Sriracha!
Here is a blog of mine from 2013 where I made three kinds of hummus.... all GOOD!!!
