Good Morning Claudie and Friends,

Have a look at a picture I took of KHF's snap dragons.

Food Spoilage guide continues.

CARROTS
A carrot that you can tie a clove hitch in is not fresh.

RAISINS
Raisins should not be harder than your teeth.

POTATOES
Fresh potatoes do not have roots, branches, or dense, leafy
undergrowth.

CHIP DIP
If you can take it out of its container and bounce it on the
floor, it has gone bad.

Good morning, yankie, MidnightSun, JM, HouHrl, senile, scout, and grmoore!

MidnightSun, wow! Cool that the gal gave you the pizza with the burned edges; I would imagine most places would have just trashed it. Nice that you shared it with your friend and his co-worker. I bet they enjoyed that. A free lunch, after all!

JM, Wednesday's game WAS a good one; yesterday's, maybe not so good since the Braves lost to Philly, 1-0. On to New York!

scout, thanks for the Friday music!

grmoore, have a great time at your short 'get-away!'

yankie, HouHrl, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

I'm not going out anywhere today, and I sure am glad since rain's supposed to be moving in soon. Good, so it can wash away more of the pollen, though the count's about the same as yesterday.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Friday! 55 degrees and rain forecasted.

Thirty-seven years ago today (although on a Monday), I passed my final audition at the Armed Forces School of Music to officially begin my Army Band career. I am thankful for all of those who helped me get to that day!

It's been a week, so I am thankful Friday has arrived! Traffic was absolutely atrocious yesterday morning!

My wife and I will leave late this afternoon for a short "get away" as I have been hired to play for an Easter "gig" this weekend so they will put us up in a hotel for a few days due to early morning starts (rehearsal and services).

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good Friday greetings Claudie!

Leftover are even better.

Went outdoors early to do what was hoped to be over for 6 months. Brush snow off the windshield of the Dart and scrap the thick ice off the glass. The ice scraping took 15 minutes in 11 (-12°C) temps.

Melted snow turned to ice and was 2" thick. Very solid ice due to the unseasonably low temps the past two days. Needed to back up the Dart for a bit just to go forward. The gravel road was nicely plowed down to the surface.

Bought at the mkt were a new to me item. Sweet Twister peppers, inspired by flavour. Grown at Mastronardi Produce Ltd, Kingsville, ON. They are greenhouse Grown • Family Owned • 4th Generation, now in their 60th year. Truly sweet tasting peppers, that was $2 a lb.

Also bought were Mineolas 50¢ ea, asparagus for an unreal $1 (no typo) a lb, baby bellas 10 oz for $2.28, cukes for 40¢ and giant plastic shopping bag size heads of green lettuce for $1.50. Passed on $2.85 a lb grapes. Have produce remaining from last week.

Visited my pal the mgr at Rite Aid, then decided to pass on a trip to Subway, WM, and Shaw's Supermarket. Did stop at Parker's Mkt and Deli to get a slice of pizza. They have one of the few places where a ⅙ of slice of an 18" pizza can be bought starting at $2.50 (tax inc).

It has been months since my last visit. Told the young pizza baker gal that pizza could be smelled. Shoot she said and ran over to get a giant pizza oven spatula and removed the pie. It was well burnt around the edges. She gave the entire 18" cheese pizza pie for free. Thank you so very much!

Drove to Whitefield to see if my pal the meat mgr was working. Asked him if he and his co-worker wanted some slices of pizza free. They took two slices a piece and wrapped them up for lunch. No excellent deals on meat were found this week.

Drove around munching on slices of pizza and came across the CT River in flood water stage. There were barricades of red and white stripped signs that read Closed due to flood water.

Took about 40 pix of the river pouring over the CT River Hwy, Rt 135 nearly up to the top of the guardrail. Several homes beside the banks need a boat to leave or return, or wait the flood out.

The Official National Weather Service out of Grey ME had a Flood Warning extended until Saturday morning. "The Flood Warning continues for the Connecticut River near Dalton until Saturday morning."

At 12 PM Thursday the stage was 21.6 feet. *Flood stage is 17.0 feet.* The river will continue to fall to below flood stage by late tomorrow evening. Lots of pix were shot.

The low yesterday morning was just 10°F (-12°C). The temp now is 34°F (1°C), with the high to be 52 °F (11°C). Spring returns.

Have a delightful day!

Good evening, Scanman and Robustus!

Scanman, I read about your adventures getting to Miami, almost getting ripped off at the car rental place, and then the rest. It'll be interesting to see if M really DOES speed up his schooling and graduate in December. That whole process (going to the Junior College for a while and then Miami Univ.) sounds complicated. Don't think the Junior College would be very happy, though, if he didn't stay the whole time.

Robustus, well sounds like your dad's heart is not too bad for it's efficiency; that's good. Hmmmm, they went through his arm to get the stents in; sounds interesting. Hope you can find some time to clean out the apartment. What happened to your friend who was going to help you?

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everyybuddy!

Good evening Claudie,

Worked at that other store today. Have to again tomorrow. As for next week, I don't know. I haven't gone or call over at my store to check my schedule for next week yet.

It wasn't busy today. Things started picking up around 2 this afternoon so that made my last hour go by rather quickly. I was happy for that.

Anyway, to answer your question, I don't know exactly where the stints were placed. I know they went through his arm to do the procedure which is becoming more common now according a nurse we talked to. I never asked where. All I know that the two arteries were like 98% blocked.

As for the heart beat skipping. He mentioned something about his heart is only 45-55% efficient. He said something about 60 is normal. My grandfather had one before he passed on which we were told his efficiently was like 10 or 15%.

Anyway, I don't know if there will be any surgery planned in the future to do anything about it. Perhaps just they gave him some medication that he must take to control it.

Last, with all this mess, I haven't been able to concentrate on my mom's old apartment. Surprisingly, I didn't hear anything from the landlord last night. Maybe he's back out of town for Easter (I hate to say "I hope!") I went in there to see how much work needs to be done. I don't think there's much. The biggest chore is hauling stuff to keep and where to put it all. I have thought of storing it in my dad's garage and sort through it when I have more time. The problem is getting it there. I don't have a truck, so I might have to take several trips in my car. I still have to box it up first to see how far I get with that. Then go from there. So, hopefully, and I mean it this time I can get it done!

Good Morning, Claudie ♩ I am glad your Husband had a good Doctor's visit, including the great news of a good CAT Scan! I hope he will continue to stay healthy.

That is great news the pollen in your area is going down, and you can open your windows again for fresh air! Have a safe trip to visit your Mom and do some grocery errands!

Yes, when GB goes down a lot, we realize we can't take for granted our abilities to go on this website and post in a timely manner. I am so grateful we don't have that issue this morning!

Yes, Tuesday's long 5 hour rehearsal was just like last year's. It was very long, but they gave us a nice light dinner, and we made it through! I only had a sore left elbow from holding up my violin for so long, but thankfully it went away with the night's sleep.

Today I plan on taking it easy at home, and only doing a few errands including getting a haircut, in preparation for tonight's Opening Show of "The Choice" Easter Musical at The Rock Church in Anaheim, CA! After I teach my one and only Piano Student this afternoon, I will be headed out to The Rock Church with my Parents to perform at tonight's Opening Show.

Happy Maundy Thursday!

We did go to the Winery for brunch on Sunday so we are having two dinners for our anniversary. Tn daughter called this morning & said she put pictures of us on Facebook. It's our wedding picture & one that was taken a few years ago. I'm on but still don't know much about it, I'm learning.

Claudie, Terrible day for getting on GB yesterday. I gave up too.

Yikes! Pollen count is way up again. I am taking my meds for it.

Glad that your Hubby is doing well with his vascular appointment and CAT scan.

You and your Mom have a good day grocery shopping. Cannot always wait for Senior Day discounts.

Back from my morning out.

Good all the way around. :)

Hello, sandipaws, hmcsretired07, dickc49, TUrtLE, and Lighting10K!

sandipaws, it's kinda brisk here today, too, though we started out at about 40° (compared to your 31°); only warming up to the low 60s, too. Windy also.

hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

dick, yes, I can see you possibly waiting to clean the pails with the Clorox solution; even weakened, it still smells a lot! Whew! Hope you get to go shopping for cars later.

TUrtLE, oh, such pretty flowers KHF has! Great picture you took! As for the GB updates....sheesh!

Lighting, that's great you're helping take care of your father; does he live with you or your brother?

48° sunny sky morning.
Should warm up by the weekend for us.

Been very busy and not a hole lot on here.
Been working off and on when I can. Been helping take care of
my Dad.

Been watching Baseball with him when I can.

It been kinda of cold here again. You just never know what the weather
is going to do. Been having the strangest weather so far this years.
I don't know what to think. Is it "real or man made". Just my opinion.

Enjoy your Thursday why having fun in Life!

Good Morning Claudie and Friends,

Claudie, not do "it" in the early hours. Make it the middle of the night, but they won't change. Not one person complained in TBTU. I think folks just quit.

I took the photo earlier this week of KHF's clematis, with my ol* 1.3 megapixel camera.

Food Spoilage Guide continues.

BREAD
Sesame seeds and Poppy seeds are the only officially
acceptable "spots" that should be seen on the surface of any
loaf of bread. Fuzzy and hairy looking white or green growth
areas are a good indication that your bread has turned into
a pharmaceutical laboratory experiment.

FLOUR
Flour is spoiled when it wiggles.

CANNED GOODS
Any canned goods that have become the size or shape of a
softball should be disposed of. Carefully.

Happy Thursday!

Good morning Claudie,

Was going to go to Vermont, but I woke up still having that pesky headache. This cluster migraine is not wanting to go away. Stayed home. I did get the final boil on my maple syrup done yesterday. After tossing the last 5 gallons of sap for bad taste, I mixed the result of the other 88 or so together and boiled that down to a final product using a hydrometer to get the sugar content correct. After obtaining the correct reading, I filtered it, and canned 9 1/2 quarts. A bit more than I expected. Using the "rule of 42" I should have gotten only slightly more than 8 quarts. The rule of 42 is that it takes 42 gallons of sap for a gallon of syrup. I used about 88 gallons of sap for 2 3/8 gallons of syrup.
I will spend some time today cleaning up, drying, and storing my maple stuff. Time for it to be put away for the next 10 months. Unless I feel a bit better, I will not clean out the tree pails or the storage buckets today. Those get cleaned with a weak clorox solution, and that does bother a headache. Will wait a few days until I feel a bit better. Might try to visit a car dealer today and look at some new vehicles.

Good morning, Dino, yankie, MidnightSun, JM, Pard, scout, grmoore, and senile!

Dino, I saw your pix of Emily's concert on FB; looks like a good group. Hoping things work out for your friend. Thanks for CCR's song; they were a group who's songs I really did like...way back when. :)

MidnightSun, oh, boy! Did you ever do some good eating yesterday! Yum!

JM, the Braves game WAS a good one last night. Tehran (SP?) did a great game! In fact he pitched all 9 innings, and actually had a no-hitter through 5. Ended up striking out 11 or 12, I think. GREAT outing for the Braves!

Pard, hope it starts warming up for you, too. Is all of your snow gone?

scout, yeah, I'd say we were going to have a crisp sunny day here, too. :)

grmoore, hope the drive in wasn't too bad. <crosses fingers>

yankie and senile, thanks for stopping in!

I'm going to the grocery store this morning. Well, actually, I need to go to Mom's first and then to the store. No senior discount, but, oh, well! :)

Good morning Claudie!

Our snow remains.

Boiled a half lb of tri-color pasta in the microwave yesterday. It was al dente in 11 minutes. Pan fried some thawed cod, red bell peppers, vidalia onions, then microwave cooked some broccoli florets.

To this a drained can of pitless medium black olives and some peel and eat shrimp were prepared. Nice sized shrimp that are 41 to the lb. Mixed it all up with some lightly cooked diced garlic and a liberal amount of evoo added.

Made homemade Japanese shrimp sauce using the following:
3/4 tsp paprika
2 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder,
+ or - per taste
3 tbsp melted butter
mix all into a plastic or glass mixing bowl
add 1 cup real mayonnaise (never salad dressing)
Light or no fat is okay. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight.
It allows all the flavors to mingle.

Optional: a teaspoon of tomato paste for added color and acidity. You can also add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little spiciness

One can just dip the shrimp into the sauce, as an appetizer, or mix the creamy sauce with the entire contents for a salubrious feast.

After eating this scrumptious meal, a fancy dessert was in order. Made a coffee cup size root beer float with real maple syrup, chocolate and pistachio nut ice cream. Was so delish a second cup was enjoyed.

The low yesterday morning was just 19°F (-7°C). The high was 28°F (-2°F). 3" of powder fell and remained. The temp is 15°F (-9°C) with the high to be 47°F (8°C). Will shop at the market and a few other stores later.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

I put a couple of pictures up at fb of last night's concert. The phone does a good job.

First order of business, I want to send out a special request to all you.

I am asking for prayers for a close friend of mine that is in a world of hurt right now. Give them strength through a rough time in their lives and that they may have the courage and strength to move forward from this tough situation. I have said it once and I'll say it again and again. God has blessed me with the best supporting cast one could have. Thanks a bunch. I have kept this person anonymous out of respect to them. Thanks to you all.

Now, for this week's edition of Dino's Jukebox. Doing it a day early as I will not be working tomorrow night and won't be able to get to the computer.

This week's edition of Dino's Jukebox comes as a special request from our own TUrtLE and KHF. The song was written by John Fogerty in 1968 and was released as a single that peaked at #2 in March of 1969, a little over 45 years ago. The song has been taken from other parts of songs where one of which was about a "washerwoman named Mary." The line "Left a good job in the city" was written following Fogerty's discharge from the National Guard, and the line "rollin' on the river" was from a movie by Will Rogers. It has been covered numerous times by the likes of Solomon Burke, Kenny Rogers, David Bowie, and Buck Owens. It was notably famous by Ike and Tina Turner in 1971 and rereleased by Tina in 1993 for the movie soundtrack for "What's Love Got To Do With It." You can't beat the original and it is tonight's jukebox selection. Happy Easter weekend everyone.

Good evening, Peeka, Mrs. Wrench, Robustus, and sandipaws!

Peeka, GB was down this morning from about 8 until 11; the early hour would have been when I was posting. I tried to get in until about 10, when we left for hubby's appointment. Shesseh! It was frustrating! If they're going to shut the site down, do it in the early, early hours! Yup! No Kroger today; that's going to be tomorrow.

Mrs. Wrench, happy (early) anniversary! Have a good meal out! Where might you be going out for your dinner?

Robustus, well, that's good that there was nothing wrong with your dad (when you couldn't get him on the phone). I know what you mean, being afraid something's going to happen to him when he's home by himself. You're right; too bad he won't go into a place like an ALF, but then he might not like it b/c he wouldn't be eating all the junk food that he's eating. BTW, did he get the stuff about your mom's Medicare straightened out? I was also wondering....where did he have the stents put in (the heart?)?

sandipaws, thanks for stopping in!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, Buddies!

Hi Claudie!

Brrrrr!!!! Are we going back to winter? I sure hope not!

It was 34° when I left for work around 8:15 this morning! The official low was 30. Supposed to have another freeze watch/warning for tonight.

As for other things, it looks like things are creeping back to normal. Work was like I never left it. Now I go out to the other store like I did last Friday for the next two days.

So far my dad seems to be doing well. I had a little scare this afternoon. Nothing serious. He called and wanted to meet me to get something to eat when I got off work. So, I called him around 2:20 so he can get over to where we were planning to go when I got off work at 3. He never showed up. So, I eventually went home. I called and called his house and no one answered. Finally around 5:30 he called me and told me that he already went without me. But, I was scared that something could have happened to him. My mom and I are worried about something happening to him being home alone. Too bad he's too stubborn to go to a place like where my mom is.

Well, I got to get ready for church in a few minutes. I'm interested to stay afterwards for worship practice to see what's planned for Easter Sunday service.

Good evening Claudie, just a quick stop as I just came on to post prices. Sounds like your day went well with a good report on your hubby's tests.

We've been lazy the past few days & it looks like we may be the rest of the week. Wrench will take the van for service on Friday. Today I made 10 quarts of home made spaghetti sauce. We had so many tomatoes from the garden when we were getting ready to go to Fl that I throw them in the freezer. Now that it's all made I'll put it in containers & freeze for later.

Tomorrow is our 60th anniversary so we'll be going out to dinner & maybe breakfast. When we got married it was a beautiful sunny day with some light rain showers. Last night it was in the 30's & we had snow, it's gone now.

Have a good evening.

Hope you have a good evening

Evening Claudie!

I'm glad your GB got straighten out but I'm having to constantly log in and can't go much of anywhere. I hope I'll be able to finish my posting. I'm glad your hubby's appt went well. I guess that meant no Kroger again today!

Have a good night!

Hiya, attitash!

Yes, lots of troubles with GB this morning. :( Glad it finally got fixed about 11 this morning.

It's not really warming up much for you today, is it? We started out at about 32° this morning and it's made it up to 60°. Nice. :)

Good afternoon Claudie...lots of troubles getting onto the GB site today. Finally made it! Sunny but a high of only 2°C/35.6°F. A light morning dusting of snow had me drive to work today. Might be able to pedal to work tomorrow. Have a great day.

Yay! Made it in!!!

Looks like the site shut down (again!) right after I made my morning post, and didn't come back up again until about 11. Sheesh!

Hubby's appointment with the vascular surgeon went real well, time-wise and information-wise! Appointment was for 11 AM, and we got in about 10:50 and saw the doctor about 11:05. The CAT Scan was really good; get another one next year. If that one's also good, then they'll start doing ultrasounds instead. :)

Hello, TUrtLE, dickc49, hmcsretired07, and Bus Jockey!

TUrtLE, YES! I know why you're making your rounds so late! Me? I'm skipping them for today. Thanks (??) for today's food spoilage guide.

dick, good thing you didn't go skiing today after all. Will you be going to Maine or a different hill?

hmcsretired07 and Bus Jockey, thanks for stopping in!

Okay then...this is no-round Wednesday for me. Hope to be back on track tomorrow morning. :)

Good morning Claudie,

Woke up to 28°F, and a half inch of snow on the ground. It will stay in the 30's today. Did not go skiing as the forecast looked like much of the mountain would be shut down from weather. I was right. They are de-icing some lifts today and will groom out the trail network tonight. Will go tomorrow. Today I will final boil all the maple syrup. That will take two to three hours. Will can it after.

Good Morning Claudie and friends.
Photo taken by Julie Sccchetti at Shore Acres and posted on the county web site.

Very late this morning. You know why, GD down for hours.

Food Spoilage Guide Cont.

FROZEN FOODS
Frozen foods that have become an integral part of the
defrosting problem in your freezer compartment will probably
be spoiled - (or wrecked anyway) by the time you pry them
out with a kitchen knife.

EXPIRATION DATES
This is NOT a marketing ploy to encourage you to throw away
perfectly good food so that you'll spend more on groceries.
Perhaps you'd benefit by having a calender in your kitchen.

MEAT
If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from a
three-block radius to congregate outside your house, the
meat is spoiled.

HHD!
