Come Here Spring!
Dearest Mother Nature – Really? This weather you are throwing at us is outrageous. One day it’s in the 70’s and the next day it’s in the 30’s. Daddy says you are going through – what did he call it? – menopause. He says that’s the only way to explain the vast difference in temperatures. I can’t tell you what mommy called it – it was a bad word.
Yesterday here it was beautiful. It was the first day it hasn’t rained. Which by the way it has rained so much that I think I’m sprouting feathers and quacking now instead of oinking. Today when mom went to work, it was so dark I thought it was night. Nope, it was the same time that she usually leaves. It was dark because it looked like the sky was fixing to fall out with thunderstorms. Lovely.
And let me tell you about Albert, mom’s Smart car. Mommy has not driven him in 8 days. Why? Because with your winds, your rain, your up and down temperatures, dad thought mom would be safer in Tank, the other car. So you see now Mother Nature you are ticking off Albert. He wants to run and he can’t.
You know there are medicines that you can take for these mood swings. If they don’t help, maybe you need to see a professional instead of taking this out on everyone in the world. I’m just sayin’.
National Cheese Doodle Day

Today, March 5, is National Cheese Doodle Day. This is totally awesome. Everyone likes cheese doodles – from humans to animals. They are made with cornmeal that has been puffed, baked and coated with a wonderful cheddar cheese. Some even have white cheese these days. Do you know who invented the cheese doodle? It was Morrie Yahai in the 1940’s. After serving as a Marine in World War II, he returned to his home in the Bronx and took over the family business – a snack food company called Old London Foods.
During the 1960’s, the Wise Foods Inc acquired the company and here you go – they are now part of the potato chip division of snacks. And did you know that in the Wise Foods, cheese doodles are one of the strongest brands and they produce over 15 million pounds of cheese doodles every year!
Even the pig enjoys his cheese doodles. Do you want to see? Okay – here you go. Enjoy this fine video that Bacon’s mom made back in the day. Roll tape –
