Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Secret Service Code Names of Presidents ~ Pull-Apart Cheese Bread ~ Doe In My Garden ~National Hydration Day

 



Good 56º clear sunny morning.

Yesterday we topped at 103º. It got windy and a little cloudy late in the afternoon and I heard thunder. 



Picture of the Day .... great business name! Smile




Interesting about the Secret Service code names.....



Former President John F. Kennedy was called Lancer, which was fitting for the so-called Camelot theme of his administration. His wife was called Lace. Their children Caroline and John Jr. were named Lyric and Lark respectively. His mother was referred to as Coppertone, and the president's youngest brother was Sunburn.
Code names have been always used by the US Secret Service to ensure the safety of the Presidential family. Anyway, nowadays, when all electronic communications are encrypted, they usually use the names just for briefness and to hold up traditions. All the Presidential family members' code names usually begin with the same letter.

Our Pull-Apart Cheese Bread is great for a movie night at home with some friends and family. That's 'cause this pull-apart bread is made with delicious and irresistible ingredients, like two kinds of melted cheese and yummy buttermilk biscuits. Just don't blame us if this recipe steals the show!


  • 2 (16.3-ounce) packages refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend
  • 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained


  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Separate biscuit dough into 16 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces and place in a large bowl. Add cheeses and chilies; toss until well mixed. Place in baking dish.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Pull apart and serve.
  • **When tossing the biscuits with cheeses, make sure to separate any biscuits that stick together. This will help make sure that there is cheesy deliciousness in every bite!

The games get intense under the hot summer sun. On June 23rd, National Hydration Day reminds us to replace fluids lost in the heat of battle.
The human body contains more than 60 percent water. Maintaining that balance while training is a challenge. And doing it during the summer months is a practice that must be consistent. Becoming overheated or dehydrated can lead to heatstroke and possibly death.
There are ways to help prevent dehydration. Being hydrated before a workout even begins is essential. If you are under-hydrated before you start, it is hard to catch up once the sweating starts. Drink plenty of fluids throughout the training. Fluids can include sports drinks that contain electrolytes (Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium, and Potassium) to replenish the essential minerals the body loses through perspiration.
For some sports, there is also a product like FuelGard™ Mouthgard and Electrolyte Tablets, which has the dual duty of protecting the athlete as well as providing essential electrolytes for maintaining hydration balance while the athlete trains.
After the workout, you will need to continue replenishing fluids.

HOW TO OBSERVE 

Whether you are an athlete or not, stay hydrated on these hot summer days. 

NATIONAL HYDRATION DAY HISTORY

SafeTGard Corporation founded National Hydration Day in honor of football Coach Victor Hawkins (September 1, 1964 – June 23, 2012) who invented a mouthguard that releases electrolytes to keep his players hydrated during games and practices. This day honors Coach Hawkins’ contributions to athlete health, safety, and success. SafeTGard Corporation founded the day in 2016 to increase awareness of the importance of proper hydration to athletes everywhere.
On June 21, 2016, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the day to be observed on June 23rd, annually.
