SATURDAY, APRIL 1ST, 2017
82 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Life is a Special Occasion!
The month of April is National Humor Month, International Guitar Month, Keep America Beautiful Month, Lawn and Garden Month, National Kite Month, National Poetry Month, National Pecan Month, National Welding Month, Records and Information Management Month and Stress Awareness Month.
Today is April Fool's Day which is an opportunity for playing jokes or tricks on one another. The stranger and the more absurd the better. The challenge is to carry out a trick that is believable, if only for a little while. Tricks are most successful if played earlier in the day before a person is wise to what is going on.
Jokes and gags must be harmless and fun. They must not be dangerous or hurt anyone's feelings. Give your jokes and gags some thought before carrying them out. Then, have fun!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Here cometh April again, and as far as I can see the world hath more fools in it than ever.
The weather here often plays the biggest joke on us this time of year. It’s a time when nature fools us with the sudden changes between showers and sunshine. But so far it’s looking like typical April weather for us with some more rain in the forecast.
I know I’ve been fooled more than once on April fools day. A day mixed with fun and laughter can’t be all bad. So I’m not complaining. Just watch out what you believe today…it may be a joke. I could tell you I won the lottery, but April Fool, I didn’t even buy a ticket ! Ha !
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
Today is Sourdough Bread Day!
Sourdough bread makes for a great grilled sandwich and I found a recipe to share for a tasty sandwich
1 stick Butter
1 whole Large Onion, Halved And Sliced
1 1/2 pound Ground Beef
Salt And Pepper, to taste
5 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
8 slices Swiss Cheese
8 slices Bread
In a medium skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium low heat. Throw in the sliced onions and cook slowly for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown and soft.
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt and pepper, and Worcestershire. Form into 4 patties.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties on both sides until totally done in the middle.
Assemble patty melts: Slice of bread, slice of cheese, hamburger patty, 1/4 of the cooked onions, another slice of cheese, and another slice of bread. On a clean griddle or in a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter and grill the sandwiches over medium heat until golden brown. Remove the sandwiches and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Turn the sandwiches to the skillet, flipping them to the other side. Cook until golden brown and crisp, and until cheese is melted.
Slice in half and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Ah, well, I am a great and sublime fool. But then I am God's fool, and all His work must be contemplated with respect.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4780. for a new month
4781. for all God’s creatures, great and small
4782. for sandwiches, quick and easy
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
