Link of the Day: Still Tasty

Although we don't want to endanger anyone with food that is not safe,
some food is safer longer than we realize. At StillTasty, you can learn
the difference between 'sell by,' 'best before.' and 'expires on' dates
and how long something will keep in your fridge or freezer along with
tips for food safety and extending food life spans. The site also has a
large database and a Q&A section.

The ultimate shelf life guide

News to be announced (old)

The Christmas parade is scheduled for Wednesday the 16th at 4:30. Line up the carts at 4:00 with the parade commencing at 4:30. Supper and entertainment to follow in Allen Hall. Rain is scheduled but we hope they are wrong this time.

H.E.B.'s Feast of Sharing is next Saturday the 19th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM Location is at 200 S Illinois Street in Weslaco. H.E.B. does a fine job of feeding a huge number of their customers every holiday. There will be many of us going from Magnolia park. There always is!!

PS: Old drafts can even be amusing!!

Cock Fighting

We went to a cock fighting area, located behind the street. Many pens of pretty roosters, also some hens with chicks. The man raises the roosters to fight. He sells the roosters for $200! This rooster was swinging on a swing in his pen. The area where they fight was an enclosed ring that looked like a small grain bin. For $200, you better hope your bird lasts longer than a few minutes!!! We did not see them fight, which was fine with most of us!

Kay Voss wrote the above paragraph and I thought it was interesting even without the pictures.

Lois is transported!!

There is a video of Lois Terryn on Facebook. VERY funny. You can find it here.
Unfortunately you have to be a Facebook user and sign in to see it.

I found a bunch of posts in "drafts". What that means is they did not make it into the blog. Could be many reasons for that; I was interrupted and then forgot, the Internet was not working right for me, I didn't like the looks of it etc. Anyway, I plan to wade through all 40 of them and see if any are worthy of posting. So if you see something and it seems out of context that would be because it was hanging around in drafts.

The parakeet

Last winter Susan and Myron Van Houweling had a parakeet  in the tree outside their motorhome. It stayed in the vicinity for several days. Leroy Misfeldt was able to get this picture of the pretty little bird.

From the Hannewalds

 Friends and Family.....Thank-you all so very much for the wonderful birthday cards you  sent. We were so surprised ! We could hardly wait to get to the post office each day to collect our stack of cards and then return home and enjoy reading them together. 
We received over 50 cards ! You all made our birthday even more special by your thoughtfulness.....Thanks from the bottom of our hearts...
Dorothy and Dick Hannewald
