Good 31º frozen morning, again! 

Temperatures after the 31º start yesterday stayed cool... and then we warmed up to 77º!

Happy Throw Back Thursday...
For you Wilsonites, here is Dennis Conte.

Dennis graduated about 3 years ahead of my class. Lived down the street from me. Worked for LAPD and LASD. Today is also his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENNIS!!

The Contes were great people. His dad worked at CF Braun in Alhambra when I worked there and his mom worked at Portola Drug Store in El Sereno. Both sooooooo nice!!!

Yesterday I received my Omaha Steaks order.....
Marinated Salmon Fillets (that are AWESOMELY good!)....

and.. Stuffed Sole with Crabmeat and Mushrooms.... YUMMMMY!

Picture of the Day....  LOL

Interesting about golf on the moon......

Alan Shepard was the 5th man to walk on the surface of Earth's natural satellite. But he also became a pioneer of sport on the moon!
On the 6th of February, 1971 he swung a makeshift 6-iron on the moon's surface — and missed the ball. His second swing, however, connected, and the golf ball went flying "miles and miles and miles," as Shepard put it after his swing. Even though it seemed like a stunt at the time, Shepard admitted there was some science involved. With little atmosphere and much lower gravity, golf balls on the moon should travel much farther than on the earth.
Golf is considered the tenth most popular sport on Earth. About 400 million people adore golf and play it regularly. Modern golf originated in the 15th century and survived through the course of history to become the first sport ever played on the other celestial body!

National Truffle Day is observed annually on May 2nd.  On this day, the deliciously sweet chocolate truffle gets the spotlight.
This chocolate confectionery is traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate, icing, cocoa powder, chopped nuts or coconut.  The truffle may be filled with other fillings such as cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, fruit, nougat, fudge, toffee, mint, marshmallow or liqueur.
N. Petruccelli of Chambery, France is believed to be the inventor of the chocolate truffle in December 1895.  Truffles became much more popular in 1902 when Prestat Chocolate Shop opened in London.  Prestat still sells “Napoleon III” truffles made to the original recipe.
Enjoy the following tried and true recipes.
