Come for the Fun!

Kiddie Day

It’s that time of year again!  The Gibson County Fair started on Friday evening, July 1st, with the Queen Contest out at the high school and some great Go-Cart Racing in front of the grandstand.    Saturday one of my good friends, Laci Samira, brought out some of her girls to do bellydancing demonstrations on Carnaby Street Stage.   A grandstand…

The Hotel St. Francis Cookbook

I found a great old cookbook today, while we were working on cleaning things out at my grama’s house, The Hotel St. Francis Cookbook.  It appears to be a first addition, as there is only one copyright date.  Although, because it was published by THE HOTEL MONTHLY PRESS, it is also likely the only edition of…

French Nougat

Just the other day, I told you about my totally awesome thrift find, of a candymaking book.  As I mentioned in that post I was really excited to try the recipe for French Nougat.  I actually learned a few interesting things while preparing to make this recipe.

Redecorating

I’ve been looking for something to put me in a good mood lately. Redecorating seems like just the thing. I recently had a new idea to modernise our lounge…My friend told me she contacted some Home Cinema Installers in Berkshire and got a home cinema installed. She says her family love watching movies together so…

Happy Birthday Mr. Curry

Today (April 19th, 2011) is Mr. Tim Curry’s 65th birthday.  Tim is one of my favorite actors of all times.  I first fell in love with his acting when I saw him play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Unfortunately, I am too young to have had the opportunity to see him play the character…
