Moon ~ Clouds ~ Happy Dog ~ Chicken Queso ~ Olympics Motto ~ Rum Day

Good 55º sun just coming over the mountain clear morning. Yesterday we topped at 102º. Hope it's cooler today.

Last night at 8:30 the moon was up........

This morning at 6:55 the clouds were hiding the sun.

Had to share this from friend Morene... One happy dog!!! Will put a smile on your face.

Yesterday UPS came before I got dressed so told him just to leave by the gate to the front yard. Dude got a cookie, so he was happy! I had ordered from Amazon the dry cat food Bruiser likes that has been taken off the shelves at Safeway (said they are changing a lot of things!) and our local Rays. Grrrrr.... actually it was cheaper than at the market!

Here's a good recipe for summer... easy and in the crock pot! Chicken Queso:

1 rotisserie chicken from the market... shredded
1 16oz jar fire-roasted salsa
3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, cubed or shredded
1 4oz can diced green chilies
Tortilla chips for dipping
Celery, carrots, bell peppers, etc... cut and for dipping
Mix shredded chicken and salsa in a 3.5 qt slow cooker. Top with cheese and green chilies. Cook on low for 2 hours or high 1 hour.
Serve with veggies and chips.

Something you might not know...
The Olympic motto is made up of three Latin words: Citius, Altius, Fortius, which is Latin for "Faster, Higher, Stronger." The motto was proposed by Pierre de Coubertin on the creation of the International Olympic Committee in 1894. Coubertin borrowed it from his friend Henri Didon, a Dominican priest who, amongst other things, was an athletics enthusiast. Coubertin said "These three words represent a programme of moral beauty. The aesthetics of sport are intangible." The motto was introduced in 1924 at the Olympic Games in Paris.

National Rum Day

When Jerry and I were in Jamaica (for a Fabergé sales convention) we toured the Appleton Rum Estate. On the bus there we were all served rum. Had more at the Estate, and on the way back to the hotel most all of the men and women were napping!!
