Rain ~ Snow ~ Geese & Ravens ~ Bruiser ~  PJ & Daves Prefab Home ~ Super Odd Names ~ Crockpot Chicken Stuffing Casserole 

Good 30º everything is frozen foggy morning. 
Yesterday the rain, except for a few real pouring episodes, it mostly stayed just drizzling and the temperature got as high as 40º.
We got a total of 1" of rain.
There was snow at some places along the river, but we didn't get any here. I was surprised. There is some up on my mountain though...

My goosie-gooses showed up for a snack and a couple ravens joined them! Took this through the door (with screen door) so not as good, but didn't want to scare the ravens! 
The turkeys were out and about as well as a couple deer. Bruiser wanted to stay dry, so he sat on the porch railing and kept and eye on the critters! 
Friends and former neighbors PJ and Dave have moved to Quartzsite Arizona. They bought a piece of property and were having a prefab home built. For now they are living in their motorhome....
It was to be delivered this past Monday, but in the process of delivering it, it was blown over on the freeway... 

PJ said both halves have to be rebuilt now and they won't get it until mid April.


My friend Trish commented on yesterday's blog that Elisha Otis was a strange name to be given to a boy. Otis was the elevator guy! It's not just the first name that is so odd, but it's the last name it's paired with! So, I looked into strange names and found these. OMGOSH!!
Girls names:
Robyn Banks, Emerald Stone, Nora Bone, Dee Zaster, Rosie Peach, Hazel Nutt, Pearl E. Whites, Penny Wise, Pat May Weiner.
Boys names:
Justin Case, Seymour Legg, Tim Burr, Ash Hull, Phil Hole, Woody Bush, Owen Money, Doug Graves, Justin Tune, Lowden Clear, Bernd Onions, Artie Choke, Ted E. Bear (father of Max Bear), Rusty Nails.
Be thankful for the name you have!!!

From Crockpot Chris...
  • I used cream of celery soup in this recipe, but you could use cream of chicken or mushroom if you’d rather.
  • I used chicken tenderloins, but you could use chicken breasts instead, just make sure your chicken is cooked through before serving.

Raisins coated in a shell of either milk chocolate or dark chocolate have their special day of honor each March 24 on National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day.
Chocolate covered raisins have been popular with moviegoers for many, many years and they continue to be.  They are also a conventional bulk vending item across the country.
More than 1 million Raisinets are produced per hour.
In some countries, chocolate covered raisins are known as Raisinets. Raisinets were the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product.  Currently made by Nestle, they are the third largest selling candy in United States history.  The Blumenthal Chocolate Company introduced the Raisinets to the United States in 1927, and then in 1984, the brand was acquired by Nestle.  There are also a large number of other brands of chocolate covered raisins on the market. 
Raisins are an excellent source of calcium, potassium, iron, fiber and vitamin B.  When you combine the raisins with dark chocolate, you have a great tasting, healthy snack.
