Cold ~ Dominic ~ 10-30 ~ Picture of the Day ~ Cashmere ~ Ham & Cheese Sticky Buns ~ National Candy Corn Day

Good 23º clear sky morning.

Yesterday started off in that 23º temperature. Sun came out and we finally warmed to 65º.

My friends Pat and Alice Reardon, who live in Idaho, and it's been in the teens (16º!) there and their cat Dominic gets comfy and warm laying on the heat vent!

Our dog Yukon used to do that too!

10-30 is a radio code for 'transmission does not conform to regulations'.
LOL, that is what Jerry called his bff/radio car partner, Steve Voors. His nickname was 10-30 Dude!!!

Picture of the Day... hmmmmmmm.......

Interesting about Cashmere....
This sought-after fabric has become synonymous with luxury; the soft, insulating material is one of the most valuable natural products used in the fashion industry today. Cashmere is made from the soft fleecy under layer of a goat’s coat. There is a breed of Cashmere goats which the soft fibers often come from, but it can actually be taken from any herd as long as the hairs are fine enough to make the cut. The name Cashmere is derived from the location Kashmir, where the fiber was originally produced as far back as the 13th century.

From Mr. Food....

These Ham and Cheese Sticky Buns bake up in your muffin tin and make for a slightly sticky and very yummy snack, or serve yourself a few and you've got an easy lunch you can take on the go! How could you go wrong with a recipe like this?


  • 1 (8-ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1/2 cup finely diced ham
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. On a flat surface, unroll crescent roll dough and pinch seams together. Evenly spread mustard on dough. Sprinkle ham, onion, cheese, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar over mustard.
  3. Starting at the long side, roll up tightly, making sure seams are pinched together. With a serrated knife, cut into 12 slices and place each into a muffin cup cut side down. Sprinkle evenly with remaining brown sugar.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove from muffin tin and serve warm.
I would think you could even use cooked chopped bacon instead of the ham....

On October 30th, the country celebrates its favorite vegetable with National Candy Corn Day.
In the late 1800s, George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company created candy corn. His sweet treat represented the bright colors of corn kernels. Originally, candy corn was yellow, orange and white. However, it wasn’t until1889 that the Goelitz Candy Company made the candy popular. Later, other candy makers developed a variety of popular colors and flavors as well. 
The original confection was made by hand using corn syrup, sugar, water, marshmallows, fondant and carnauba wax (a wax made from the leaves of a palm tree). However, modern candy makers produce the treat using machines while using the original ingredients.
These days, numerous recipes create the candy corn flavors in cakes, cookies, beverages, and more.


Candy corn inspires desserts, too. Add the candy to popcorn for a spooktacular treat. Another delicious way to celebrate the day would be to layer gelatin, pudding or cakes with white, yellow and orange colors and flavors. Salty and sweet always pair well together, too. Add pretzels, candy corn, and nuts to a snack mix.
