SNOW! ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Odd Name ~ Maxwell Klinger ~ Easy Chicken Casserole ~ Irish Coffee Day

Good 32ยบ it snowed morning! What a surprise to wake up to! Predictions were for snow at higher levels. I'm at 1200'. The rain yesterday hung around and by noon we got another 1/2". I took some pictures first thing this morning. Will take more later when it's lighter out. My satellite dishes were covered and I had to clean them off so the wifi would work and the TV.

And I just looked out and it's snowing again (7:45am).  Shall be an interesting day. Glad I don't have to go anywhere!

Happy Throw Back Thursday
2011 when I was babysitting Atlas, Brian's dog, and he and Harley were having a stare down! Both are gone and so missed! RIP Harley and Atlas♥ ♥

When I posted the apropros names of people and their professions I got an email from a friend saying he had gone to a Dr. Slaughter once in RR for a surgery.

This just dawned on me... my Jerry worked at the BC Range with Jim Klinger. In the TV show M*A*S*H there was a sergeant named Maxwell Klinger! How odd!

Here are today’s five thing to know about Irish Coffee:

  1. The Irish coffee typically consisted of black coffee, sugar, whipped cream, and Irish whiskey.
  2. Some say it was invented in Ireland and was intended to help travelers keep warm while traveling the Atlantic Ocean.
  3. It is said that Stanton Delaplane brought the drink to the United States and convinced the Buena Vista bar in San Francisco to put it on their drink menu.
  4. Tom Bergin’s Tavern in Los Angeles, also claims to have been the originator and has had a large sign in place reading “House of Irish Coffee” since the early 1950s.
  5. A similar hot Irish drink is called the Hot Irish Monk – cocoa, Frangelica (available kosher in select places) and whiskey.
