Clouds and Cool ~ Dude ~ Crockpot White Bean Chili ~ Doe ~ Death of Paper ~ Terri Prim ~ Sally Mosley ~ Name Your Car Day

Good 42º cloudy morning.

Cloudy and cool yesterday...

I even turned on the heat for a while! I think we finally warmed to 69º.

Breakfast was 2 eggs "microwave fried" atop spinach, some melon, and "two bite cinnamon rolls". Mmmmmmmm

Dude was quiet and just stayed on his pillow bed...

I put all the ingredients into the crockpot to make the Crockpot White Bean Chili....
I used green chunky salsa, chicken thighs, and the Mexican blend cheesier... I never follow recipes EXACTLY!

It is very tasty, but makes a lot and I don't think I will make it again. I'll be eating it for breakfast lunch and dinner!!!

While in the kitchen, this beauty doe was out front eating grass.....

You might have seen this before, I had, but still SO FUNNY!!! Only 40 seconds long. Hope you get a laugh! The Death of Paper:

Special birthdays today....
Terri Prim (former, ret. "office manager" at Avalon Station) HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERI!!

And.... Sally Mosley, aka Sally Jr. granddaughter of Sally Harwell (LASD ret) is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SALLY!!

Historically this date....

1789 – George Washington sends the proposed Constitutional amendments (The United States Bill of Rights) to the States for ratification.

1919 – U.S. President Woodrow Wilson suffers a massive stroke, leaving him partially paralyzed.

2001 – NATO backs U.S. military strikes following 9/11.

And births this date include...
1890 – Groucho Marx, American comedian and actor (d. 1977)

1895 – Bud Abbott, American comedian and actor (d. 1974)
.... and it seems he died broke and friendless. You can read a sad story written about him in 1960:

1928 – George "Spanky" McFarland, American actor (d. 1993)

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Name Your Car Day

Does your car have a name? Lots of people name their cars. People with big boats, name their boat, and we think nothing of it. So, why not name your car or truck!?

Every car has character and personality. We spend a lot of time in our cars, and caring for them. So, its only fitting that each car gets its own name.

Selecting a name should be made with care and consideration. Give your car a name that properly reflects its character. What you name you car should be a proper reflection of its character and performance, and your desires for your car. In general, guys names are for guys' cars, and girl names are for the cars that you ladies drive. Aside from that, selection of a name is wide open. But, be have feelings, too.

Here are some of our thoughts in selecting an appropriate name for your car:
Don't select wimpy names. That might give your car a personality complex and it will perform accordingly.

Do give a strong, aggressive name to sports cars and cars with powerful engines.

Sleek, sexy feline-like cars savor names that begin with "lady".

Old junkers are proud just to be around. You can call them just about anything. Try "Tramp", or "Old Yeller", "Old Blue".

Pick names to reflect your personality.
"Pickemup" trucks must have country names.

Don't give common names (like Joe, Mike or Sue)  to luxury cars. They beam over names like Reginald, Archibald, and Crystal.

That one up there is mine and I have named it "Merlot" !!!
