Picture of the Day

Interesting about the jawbone ...
Which bone in the human body is the hardest?
The mandible, or jawbone, is the hardest bone in the human body. It is also the strongest and largest of the bones in the face. The jawbone holds the lower teeth in place and connects to the skull behind the ears. The entirety of the jawbone forms while babies are in utero. First cartilage forms and then ossification takes place over several weeks to form the actual jawbone. During the first year of a child's life, the mandible hardens to become the strongest, hardest bone in the body.


Summer Corn Salad is a bright refreshing taste of summer. Garden fresh corn and tomatoes come together with fresh mozzarella, herbs and a glorious dressing that really gives it an even lighter fresher taste. This simple recipe is the perfect summer side!

4 ears fresh corn on the cob, cleaned and washed
1 (10.5 ounce) package grape tomatoes, halved
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into bite size pieces
10 basil leaves, chiffonade (roll leaves and slice thinly)
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground coarse black pepper
Cut corn off the cob, place into a medium mixing bowl.  Add tomatoes and mozzarella. Sprinkle with basil.  Set aside.
Add fresh lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper to a pint size canning jar.  Shake to combine.  Pour dressing over salad.  Toss to combine.
Serve and enjoy!
  1. If you are traveling with this salad or making ahead; you can prep the salad and the dressing and wait to pour dressing over salad until ready to serve.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. You can cook the corn if you prefer, I really enjoy the fresh taste of it uncooked in this salad.  The acid in the lemon juice will mellow out the starchiness of the corn and create a fabulous flavor.

Bruiser was trying to give Dash a bad time by laying next to his bed! Dude ignored them both.

Whether it is for breakfast or a snack, blueberry muffins are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and are honored each year on July 11th, National Blueberry Muffin Day.
While enjoying a delicious blueberry muffin, consider the powerhouse the blueberry is. This once wild berry became domesticated during the early 1900s thanks to the observations of Elizabeth Coleman White and the research of Dr. Frederick V. Coville. Before their efforts, wild blueberries were never successfully transplanted and raised in any farming operation for personal or commercial production. The only way to enjoy fresh blueberries was to seek them out where they grew naturally.
Today we can enjoy the abundant potassium, vitamin C and B6, and other health benefits of the blueberry much more readily than they did a 120 years ago. We bake them into muffins and eat them by the handfuls. They’re so likable, blueberries celebrate a popsiclecheesecake and a popover day, too! Don’t forget, July is National Blueberry Month.
