Good 52º dark foggy morning.
Happy Throw Back Thursday ... my sister Marion and I 60 years ago... 1949. I was 4 and she was 15.
Yesterday the rain came and went and we topped at 63º.
It stayed like this all day....
For all of this month prior, we were in the high 70ºs, 80ºs, and 90ºs. This cooler weather started Monday. I even turned on the heater Tuesday and Wednesday! Summer over????? I guess so, the first day of Fall is Monday.
Picture of the Day....
Interesting about hummingbirds...
Hummingbirds are birds native to the Americas and constitute the biological family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 3–5 inches in length. The smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 2.0 inches bee hummingbird weighing less than 0.07 oz.
They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, which vary from around 12 beats per second in the largest species, to in excess of 80 in some of the smallest. Of those species that have been measured in wind tunnels, their top speed exceeds 34 mph and some species can dive at speeds in excess of 49 mph.
From Mr. Food... Tuna Twist
We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
- 1/2 pound twist pasta
- 2 cups mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (12-ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas, thawed
- 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- Cook pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again.
- In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, and pepper; mix well. Add pasta and remaining ingredients. Toss until well combined; cover, and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
