The sky stayed blue and with beautiful clouds all day. By 4pm we hit 82º.

Interesting about Tim Allen.....

This lovable comedian served time in prison! I don’t know about you but I was definitely shocked when I came across this piece of information. Tim Allen is known for lending his voice to the character of Buzz Lightyear in ‘The Toy Story’ series. He is also a famous TV actor who appeared in ‘Home Improvement’ and is currently playing the lead in ‘Last Man Standing.’ Back to the jail time, however. In 1978, Allen was arrested from the Battle Creek International Airport, Detroit, for possession of almost a pound of cocaine. He pled guilty to drug trafficking charges and avoided life imprisonment only by naming other drug dealers. He was then sentenced for five years in prison out of which he spent two years and four months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota, after which he was released on parole in July 1981.

 In 1997, he was arrested again for driving under the influence of alcohol (he almost tripped backwards when he was pulled over and had .15 percent blood-alcohol content) and had to undergo rehabilitation for alcohol abuse

National Chocolate Milkshake Day is observed each year on September 12 by chocolate and ice cream lovers alike.  Forget the calories in it for just this one day and enjoy a nice tall, thick and delicious, chocolate milkshake! The first time the term “milkshake” was used in print was in 1885.  During this period, milkshake referred to an alcoholic beverage which was an alcoholic drink described as a “sturdy, healthful eggnog type of drink” which was a blend of eggs, whiskey, and other ingredients served both as a tonic and treat at pharmacies.
  • By 1900 milkshakes were referred to as “wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrup.”
  • The early 1900s – People began asking for this “new treat” with a scoop of ice cream.
  • 1911 – The Hamilton Beach’s drink mixers began to be used at soda fountains.
**Here is my Hamilton Beach mixer.... it had been in the cafeteria at the Los Angeles Terminal Annx Post Office where my dad worked.
  • 1922 – Steven Poplawski invented the electric blender or drink mixer.
  • Due to the invention of the blender, the milkshake began to take a chipped, aerated and frothy form as they are today.
  • It was by the 1930s that milkshakes became a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.
To celebrate, enjoy a Chocolate Milkshake at your favorite restaurant or soda fountain.  You may want to top off your chocolate milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream!
