Interesting about ball point pens......
A ballpoint pen, also known as a biro or ball pen, is a pen that dispenses ink (usually in paste form) over a metal ball at its point, i.e. over a "ball point". The metal commonly used is steel, brass, or tungsten carbide. It was conceived and developed as a cleaner and more reliable alternative to dip pens and fountain pens, and it is now the world's most-used writing instrument:millions are manufactured and sold daily. As a result, it has influenced art and graphic design and spawned an artwork genre.
Gimbel's Department Store ran big ads all over the New York the day before they first offered this new writing instrument for sale. The ballpoint pen came with a guarantee to write for two years without needing a refill. The store was a madhouse, with people scrambling over each other to get their own ballpoint pen. The store's initial offering of 10,000 pens, going for $12.50 each, sold out by the end of the day. Two Hungarian brothers were the first to invent the ballpoint pen and produce them in their factory in Australia. The ballpoint was first patented by John Loud in the U.S. in 1888, but he never actually produced any pens. Today, ballpoint pens generate annual sales of nearly $21 billion.

I don't get it. I just don't get it! He's nice and she's a terminal beeeeotch!
The heat has totally taken away my energy. Best I can do is minimum. I did make that Southern Style Macaroni Salad from yesterday's blog. But, I changed a number of things from the recipe.
I didn't want onion so I used chopped garlic instead.
No Miracle Whip, just BF Mayo and some BF Organic Spicy Chipotle Mayo, tuna, lots of celery. I also used 5 hard boiled eggs chopped instead of 3.
After I got it all in the bowl I didn't use as much mayonnaise as called for. I put in a couple of large spoonfuls of the regular mayo and of the chipotle mayo.
Then after doing the taste test, I wanted more flavor so I added in a pack of chopped salmon.
This was good now. I put a few servings in a refrigerator bowl and the rest into zip lock freezer bags and put them in the freezer.
Yes you can freeze macaroni (or any pasta) salad.
So, dinner was some Macaroni Salad and an Omaha Steaks Home-style Individual Meatloaf. OMGOOD!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
