Blue Sky!!!! ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Rico Suáve ~ Smoke Covered Areas ~ Funny Town Names ~ Edda Gahm ~ Replace Columbus Day

Good 48º somewhat smokey, few clouds, morning. Best air in awhile! Actual blue sky!!!     

Yesterday we topped at 90º.  100+º predicted for this weekend.

Happy Throw Back Thursday....
Me 5th grade with my teacher Mrs. Rector at Sierra Park Grammar School...
She was a wonderful woman!

Breakfast yesterday was some of that super good melon from 7 Oaks Farm, a couple of the Blueberry Biscuits from TJ's, and a microwaved egg with Parmesan cheese...

My daughter Kristen is fostering this little, in need of a home, Chihuahua she named Rico Suáve. So adorable!

This is what we have been breathing....

Near the bottom of the map is the Oregon/California border. Written on the blue of the Pacific near the bottom is the town of Brookings. Right above is Gold Beach. If you look directly to the right of those towns, about 2 inches on the map, you see almost hidden in the red is Medford. We are just 30 miles west of Medford.

This is funny, a town in Texas is called Earth. So when someone asks one of the residents there, "where are you from"..... the answer is "earth" !!!! I thought that was hilarious. There are a number of strangely named towns in this country... one in California is Dunmovin! and Bummerville! Here in Oregon there is Drain. Also in Oregon is Boring! I dated a guy named Bob Boring!  Shoot, in Alabama there is a town called Intercourse! In Wisconsin, Spread Eagle! WHAAAAA???? Colorado had a town named Climax! Florida town of Wahoo! New York has Butts Corner! and Arizona two towns, Nothing and Why! Here's the entire list:

Here are today’s five thing to know about Trail Mix:
  1. Trail mix is a combination of dried fruit, grains, nuts, and sometimes chocolate, developed as a snack food to be taken along on outdoor hikes.
  2. Trail mix is considered an ideal snack food for hikes, because it is tasty, lightweight, easy to store, and nutritious, providing a quick boost from the carbohydrates in the dried fruit and/or granola, and sustained energy from the mono- and polyunsaturated fats in nuts.
  3. Many claim that trail mix was first invented in 1968 by two California surfers who blended peanuts and raisins together for an energy snack.
  4. However, trail mix is also mentioned in Jack Kerouac’s 1958 novel The Dharma Bums as the two main characters describe their planned meals in their preparation for a hiking trip.
  5. The recipe for trail mix is most likely European in origin, where it has been known as a snack under various names  in various countries since the 17th century.
