Good 40º cloudy windy morning. Since yesterday we got another 1/2" of rain~!

Bruiser was in another of his "moods" of really being in places he shouldn't be... this time on top of the kitchen table...

I got into a panic yesterday afternoon when I turned on the TV and didn't get a satellite signal. OH NO.... now what? NOT on game day!!!!!

 I checked everything. Then I unplugged every cord that goes into the box and pushed every button. TAAA DAA... it came on! WHEW!

National Chopsticks Day
(My chopsticks:)

Put away the forks and spoons, for today is National Chopsticks Day. They may or may not be new to you. But, for about 1/4 of the world's population, chopsticks are the eating utensils of choice for every meal. Like western children, Asian children, quickly learn to use chopsticks, and quickly become adept at using it. To them, forks are an odd utensil.
Chopsticks can be made of wood, bamboo, plastic, bone, fine china or metal.
In China they are called "Kuaizi", which means "quick little bamboo fellows".
Chopsticks have been in use for over 5,00 years. They originated in China, and are used in virtually all Asian cultures. How their use spread to other countries is not known.
To participate in National Chopsticks Day, use chopsticks for all of your meals. Chances are, you will eat Chinese or other Asian food with your chopsticks. But, you can eat any foods with chopsticks today.

Because my Jerry had been stationed in Japan he became a huge fan of Japanese food. Got me hooked too and our children. Kristen Brian and Aaron all learned to eat with chopsticks at an early age!
