Good 57º dark super smokey gloomy morning. We topped at 101º yesterday afternoon.
Yesterday the smoke was horrid. It still looks like this.....
This photo was taken in downtown Grants Pass at Williams Hwy and Union Ave looking southwest at the Taylor Creek fire.
The wildfire burning west of Grants Pass and Merlin has grown to 16,500 acres as of Friday. That is an increase of almost 3,000 acres since Friday and the fire is still burning out of control.

The McCaughey septuplets (born November 19, 1997), are septuplets (seven offspring) born to Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey in Des Moines, Iowa, United States. They are the world's first set of surviving septuplets.
Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey (pronounced "McCoy") had one daughter, Mikayla Marie, born January 3, 1996. While under treatment with ovulation-stimulating Metrodin for infertility, Bobbi became pregnant with seven babies. The McCaugheys, residents of the town of Carlisle, declined selective reduction to reduce the number of infants, saying that they would "put it in God's hands". The obstetricians primarily responsible for the medical care of the babies were Karen Drake and Paula Mahone.
The septuplets, four boys and three girls, were born nine weeks prematurely in Des Moines on November 19, 1997. They were born by Caesarean section, all within six minutes. They were the world's first set of surviving septuplets.

Here is a super tasty cheesecake I made some time back.
And.... instead of the traditional cheesecake I made it with the new Philly Jalapeño Cream Cheese...
This recipe for 6 mini cheesecakes:
Make the crust with graham cracker crumbs, 1 cup + 3 T sugar + 3 T melted butter. Mix well and press into bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes at 325º. (You will have leftover crumbs.)
Then in electric mixer put 2 tubs of the Jalapeño cream cheese with
1 t. lemon extract (instead of vanilla), and 1/2 cup sugar...mix well. Then add 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), mixing well.... and then add 2 eggs, mixing well. Spoon into crusts and bake for 45 minutes at 325º.
OMGOOD!!!! Spicy, so for those of you with delicate palates, don't make it for you...but make if for the person in the house who likes SPICE!
These are sooooooooooooo good they should be illegal!!!
