Tucker ~ Fred & Wilma Flintstone ~ BLT Roll-ups ~ Andy Nantz ~ National Cellophane Tape Day

Good 40º clear sunny morning.  
It stayed cool yesterday and we only hit 70º. The big parade, Boatnik, was in Grants Pass. Our Tucker and his school band were in the parade... (taken by his dad!)

Today predictions are for warmer, up to mid 80ºs.  
 The Flintstones premiered on September 30, 1960, at 8:30 pm, and quickly became a hit. The first two seasons were sponsored by Winston cigarettes and the characters appeared in several black-and-white television commercials for Winston. In the commercials, Flintstones characters Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble were seen promoting Winston, and every episode ended with Fred lighting a Winston for his wife Wilma while singing the product's jingle. By the third season, however, the show's ads became more children oriented and Winston was replaced by Welch's.
BLT Roll-ups....
It's a chopped salad filling with the flavors of a BLT in a tortilla wrap.


  • 6 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (3-ounce) container real bacon bits
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  1. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, bacon bits, and pepper; mix well.
  2. Spoon mixture evenly onto center of each tortilla. Fold bottom of each tortilla over lettuce mixture then fold both sides over, envelope fashion. Fold top of each tortilla closed and turn seam-side down. Serve immediately.


If you'd prefer, use light mayonnaise and whole-wheat tortillas and, instead of bacon bits, chop a quarter pound of deli turkey to mix in and create a "TLT" burrito.

Observed annually on May 27th is National Cellophane Tape Day. It is hard to imagine where we would be without this invention. How would we wrap our Christmas and birthday gifts?
This everyday household and office item, which is also known as invisible tape or Scotch Tape, was invented by Richard Gurley Drew (June 22, 1899 – December 14, 1980).  Drew joined the 3M Company in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1920, first inventing the masking tape in 1926, followed by the invention of the cellophane tape in 1930.   
Originally designed to seal Cellophane packages sold in grocers and bakeries, the new adhesive missed its mark. By the time all its drawbacks were resolved, DuPont introduced heat-sealed cellophane.
Regardless, with a resounding endorsement from customers, 3M found a market in both the home and the office.
