Bruiser ~ Picture of the Day ~ Saving Documents ~ No-Bake Cranberry Pie ~ Ellen (Naugle) Pantalone ~ Wayne & Shirley Low ~ Sunset ~ Dinner ~ National Fast Food Day

Good 27ยบ clear icy morning.
Yesterday morning Bruiser was out on a "hunt".... He was gone about 2 hours.
He's been doing this all the time he has lived with me (after being feral out in my property for about the first 5 years of his life). He's lived with me now for almost 7 years. I still worry when he's out and about! But, he always comes back home!
Picture of the Day......
This is an "April Fools" breakfast! LOL, yogurt, a peach, and cut up apple!
Interesting about keeping documents...
Even though we live in a digital age, paperwork still overwhelms many of us. Bank statements, tax returns, bills, pay stubs: It can be confusing to know what to keep and what can be safely disposed of.
The good news? You can probably get rid of more documents than you think — and most of what you should keep can be scanned and stored digitally. Here’s how to get started tackling (and managing) that paper stack, with tips on how long you really should hang onto paperwork.
Remember: When you get rid of personalized documents, delete the digital versions and shred paper ones. Never toss important documents in the trash or recycling; they’re prime targets for identity thieves.
Car Loan documents: Keep until you pay off your car. 
Title: Hold onto until you sell your car and hand over the title. If you misplace your original title, you can request a copy from your Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a small fee.
Home Mortgage documents: Keep indefinitely. 
Major home improvement receipts: Keep indefinitely; digital copies are fine. 
Utility bills: Shred or delete after verifying payment on your bank or credit card account.
Finances Debit and credit card receipts: Keep until you’ve checked them against your monthly statement. 
Bank statements: Consider printing out your latest month’s statement; in case of an electronic data breach, you’ll have proof of your account balance. Shred the old statement when you print out your newest one. 
Retirement plan statements: Keep quarterly statements until you receive your year-end statement; keep paper or digital copies of annual statements for at least 7 years after you retire or close the account. 
Investments: Keep purchase receipts until you sell the investments; if your year-end statement includes this information, keep statements instead.
Insurance Home, auto and umbrella policies: Keep until you get your new policy. For auto insurance, most states accept electronic versions of your insurance card, but it may also be smart to keep a printed version in your glove compartment. 
Health, life, disability and long-term care policies: Keep until coverage ends.
Taxes Tax Returns (1040 forms, etc.): Keep printed or digital copies of returns indefinitely.  
Supporting documents (receipts, W-2s, bank interest forms, etc. ): Keep for 7 years. Encrypt digital copies on your computer or keep them on a secure USB drive.

This I posted last year.....
Any more, the easier a recipe is the better! This is No-Bake Cranberry Pie. A great addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.....
  • 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (16-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce ** 
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
In a medium-sized bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and butter. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, forming a crust.
In a medium-sized bowl, with an electric beater on low speed, beat cream cheese, cranberry sauce, pineapple, and walnuts until well combined; spoon into pie crust.
In a small bowl, combine sour cream and brown sugar. Spoon over cranberry mixture, cover, and freeze at least 4 hours, or overnight. Thaw 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
**Whole berry cranberry sauce adds nice chunks of cranberries, but traditional cranberry sauce can also be used.

National Fast Food Day is observed annually on November 16.  On this day each year, people all across the country celebrate by going through the drive-thru, dining inside or ordering their fast food to go.
First popularized in the United States in the 1950s, fast food is considered any meal with low preparation time and served to a customer in a packaged form for quick dine-in, take-out or take-away and typically with a drive-thru.
Merriam-Webster dictionary first recognized the term “fast food” in 1951.
Following World War I, automobiles became popular and more affordable.  At that time drive-in restaurants were introduced.  In 1921, White Castle, an American company founded by Billy Ingram and Walter Anderson in Wichita, Kansas, opened, selling hamburgers for five cents each.  Anderson had opened the first White Castle in 1916 as a limited menu, high-volume, low-cost, high-speed hamburger restaurant.
The United States has the largest fast food industry in the world.  American fast food restaurants are located in over 100 countries.
Standard fast food menu items include hamburgers and other sandwiches, fish, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, tacos, pizza, hot dogs, french fries, onion rings, breakfast biscuits, coffee and ice cream. 

Fun fact: The first Happy Meal was served in June of 1979.
