Good 33º high fog morning.
Be careful out there..... full moon!

Yesterday, again, super foggy for the start of the day.
Then it lasted all day. Not a drop of sunshine at all. Stayed cold... topped at 37º.
Picture of the Day .... exciting! 😶

Interesting about US Presidents with facial hair and beards.....

At the beginning of our republic's history, facial hair was not popular. It wasn't until Abraham Lincoln was elected to the presidency in 1860 that a young girl wrote him a letter saying that he would look good with a beard because his face was so narrow, and he would look more masculine wearing one. He didn't have a full beard, but just "chin whiskers" keeping his upper lip bare.

No president had worn a beard starting with George Washington, and only four presidents have ever worn a beard since then.....

Abraham Lincoln 


Benjamin Harriso 


James Garfield 


Rutherford Hayes


8 presidents had facial hair.....

Grover Cleveland, Martin Van Buren, William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, Chester Arthur, Ulysses Grant, Zachary Taylor, John Quincy Adams

If your Thanksgiving leftovers look sort of blah, it's time for a leftover makeover! No worries, we've found an easy, freezer-aisle shortcut way to turn those Thanksgiving leftovers into a tasty favorite that's way more fun to eat than a plain old turkey sandwich. Our Thanksgiving Leftover Poppers take just 15 minutes, which makes them a good idea if you're in a hurry to go shopping!


  • 2 (7.5-ounce) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup prepared stuffing
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup diced, cooked turkey
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Separate dough into biscuits. Flatten each biscuit into thin, round circles.
  2. On center of each circle, place 1 teaspoon each of stuffing and cranberry sauce and a few pieces of turkey. Bring edges together and pinch tightly to close. Shape into a round roll and place on baking sheet seam side down; repeat with remaining dough
  3. Brush tops of biscuits with egg. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Cyber Monday is the Internet’s answer to Black Friday deals. The official observance takes place the Monday after Thanksgiving.

While Internet-based companies traditionally offered their best holiday shopping on Cyber Monday to compete with Black Friday deals in brick and mortar stores, things have been changing. However, in more recent years, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals tend to run together. Some start as early as the week of Thanksgiving and run right through the holiday season. But don’t neglect online deals. There may still be savings to be had. 

In 2014, Monday after Thanksgiving online sales continued to trend upward with 15.4% increase in revenue from 2013 sales, making it the biggest, online shopping day in history. In 2014 Americans spent an average of $124 per order on Cyber Monday.

Social media also ramps up advertising opportunities, bringing potential shoppers to retailers’ online stores. Cyber shopping is expected to be up again this year with a predicted 3 billion in sales.

Purchases on mobile devices also have increased, adding to the convenience of Cyber shopping for the holidays. No longer do you have to be strapped to your PC or Mac in order to make an online purchase. Purchases can now be made on the train during a morning commute while waiting for a doctor’s appointment or during a lunch break.

Some of the most popular online purchases are likely to be tech items, especially wearable technology as well as traditional small appliances, clothing, gift cards, and digital media.


When it comes to holiday shopping, we all want to get the best deals on the best gifts. While we’re on the internet, it’s important to be safe while we’re being savvy shoppers, too.

  • Make your list early and stick to it. This will also help you to stay on budget.
  • Stick to trusted websites and be wary of spam, scams, and spoofed sites.
  • Shop local websites. Many small businesses also participate in Cyber Monday. You may find a deal you didn’t expect.
  • Check your favorite retailer’s social media feeds for the best deals.
  • Maximize your savings by using the card with the best points.
  • When all the shopping is done, be sure to monitor your credit cards and bank accounts for suspicious activity. If you notice anything you don’t recognize, report it immediately.

Get your computer out and enjoy those online deals.
