Frozen Again ~ Micol Klamm ~ Sunday Football ~ Monday Night Football

Good 29º frozen morning.   A heat wave, 10º warmer than yesterday!
Yesterday was just too cold. Wussy wussy  me!!! I had all the heaters on and the oven with the door open. Sheesh....
I went to Grants Pass for Micol's service...

It was very nice. There was a large screen up front of the chapel area and Bob had put together a whole lot of photos that streamed, of Micol, starting when she was very young, high school, and with Bob, Micol's children, and friends. Then one by one people got up and spoke about their relationship and friendship with Micol.
She will be so missed by a lot of people!
Micol loved cats so I wore my cat shirt...
                         Her daughter said Micol would have loved it!

National Hard Candy Day

Celebrate National Hard Candy Day! Who doesn't love a piece of hard candy now and again? Its sweet, sugary taste literally causes your mouth to water. Today is a celebration of all types of hard candies—everything from lollipops to candy canes to caramels. It's no wonder that hard candy has remained so popular all these years!
Hard candy can be traced back to Ancient Egypt, Arabia, and China. Archaeologists in all of these regions have found traces of “candied” fruits and nuts that had been dipped in honey, which is a preservative. There is also evidence that people stuck sticks into their candy treats to keep their hands from getting sticky as they ate them, just like our modern lollipops!
Did you know that the world's largest lollipop weighs 6,514 pounds? Ashrita Furman and members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre made it in August of 2009 to break the Guinness World Record. To celebrate National Hard Candy Day, enjoy a piece (or two) of your favorite hard candies!
