Snow ~ Picture of the Day ~ Dempsey The Football Kicker ~ Honey Lemon Chicken ~ Joe Kirk ~ National Homemade Soup Day




Good 32º foggy morning. 
 
My mountain yesterday morning....

 
 
Later we had sunshine, it melted all the snow, and we topped at 53º.

 
Picture of the Day....😱 Reason for using the "f" word.... 
 

 
 
 
Interesting about a football kicker..... 
 

Thomas John Dempsey (b. Milwaukee, Wisconsin; 1947 – 2020) was an American professional football player who was a placekicker in the National Football League (NFL) for the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Houston Oilers and Buffalo Bills. With the Saints in 1970, he made a 63-yard field goal, setting an NFL record which stood for over 40 years.

Unlike the "soccer style" approach which was becoming more and more widely used during his career, Dempsey's kicking style was the old-school, straight-toe style. He was born with no toes on his right foot and no fingers on his right hand. To compensate for this, Dempsey wore a custom, flat-front kicking shoe that ended where his toes were supposed to begin.

The shoe generated controversy about whether it gave a player an unfair advantage. 

When reporters would ask him if he thought it was unfair, he said, "Unfair, eh? How 'bout you try kickin' a 63 yard field goal to win it with 2 seconds left an' yer wearin' a square shoe, oh yeah, and no toes either."

February 4th heats up with National Homemade Soup Day. In every cuisine, soup provides a rich basis of flavor and history.
Before the era of modern transportation, soup was a product of regionally available foods. For this reason, there are thousands of soup recipes available today.
Many soups also offer medicinal properties. What was once considered a wives’ tale, chicken soup now has the backing of the scientific community.  Yes, chicken soup helps relieve the symptoms of the common cold. How? Well, scientists believe that a bowl of the soup may reduce inflammation of the lungs. It is thought that chicken soup slows down the activity of white blood cells that can cause inflammation.
But that’s not all homemade soup does. Every cook knows the most important ingredient that goes into every pot of simmering soup. They keep the ingredient stored where it will do its best work, too. As they work, they season the soup from their heart giving it just the right amount of love each and every time. Whether they add it with the noodles or the vegetable, the broth or the cream, each cook knows there’s enough to go around. That’s why homemade soup heals the best.
