Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

I never was a Brownie or Girl Scout. But I usually buy the cookies. Unfortunately, I didn't buy any this year.

I didn't buy any, either, but I did have a Samoa (or Caramel Delight as they are called in my neck of the woods*) from my friend's box.

*There are two bakeries who supply cookies to the Girl Scouts. Some cookies have different names depending upon the bakery used.

Welcome, fellow Girl Scout.

I wasn't any good at selling cookies. Heck, I'm no good with most types of fund raisers, honestly.

Thanks for the welcome.

I didn't have very many relatives that were interested in my cookies. I think that besides my aunt (who was probably the only family member outside of who I lived with), the only other people who bought cookies from me were friends of my grandparents. Fundraising was almost an exercise in frustration for me.

Same here. I had to do a lot of fund raising being in high school band and the only stuff I was good at was the volunteering. We sold candy bars. I was no good at it. It took me a while to sell my allotted two boxes, but everyone else gobbled up box after box and I know they weren't just selling to themselves. Being extremely shy has its disadvantages!

Happy Learn About Butterflies Day!
Butterflieshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly#Scales
Butterflies are characterized by their scale-covered wings. The coloration of butterfly wings is created by minute scales. These scales are pigmented with melanins that give them blacks and browns, but blues, greens, reds and iridescence are usually created not by pigments but the microstructure of the scales. This structural coloration is the result of coherent scattering of light by the photonic crystal nature of the scales.[6][7][8] The scales cling somewhat loosely to the wing and come off easily without harming the butterfly.


Happy National Potato Chips Day (can't let this one go without eating some, but that means I have to make a trip to the store)!

Happy 3.14! How many digits can you recite this number to (me? Only 3.14)?

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. instead of eating corned beef and cabbage, I will be eating spaghetti and either meatballs or sausage. March 19th is supposed to be Italian night, but because it is during the week, we are celebrating on a Saturday.

I didn't have any traditional St. Patrick's food for St. Patrick's Day.

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

I didn't either, but only because I told my husband he didn't need to bring me any corned beef and cabbage from the Harvester. He didn't enjoy his; he's had it there on St. Patrick's every year for five years, and he says it's been better every year.

I like corned beef hash, but am not crazy about corned beef or cabbage.

Dance? Er, I'm not that good at dancing. Usually I just sing at these do's...

You know I visited Ireland once and I never found one restaurant that had corned beef and cabbage on the menu. I got some nice bakery stuff in tea shops in the afternoon. I liked the soda bread

MsJ! I've missed you. Where have you been?

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

I read somewhere that corned beef and cabbage is a dish found in America, not Ireland.
I don't dance either, but we can still celebrate spring.

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

Cabbage I can take. Corned beef I cannot. Fortunately, my mom doesn't forget and make me corned beef sandwiches to take on my long train rides to school.

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

our weather is going to hit 91 degrees by Sunday, so it's hit the pool party day. Sunscreen, hat, plenty of cold drinks, (no alcohol at the pool). and later cold foods for dinner.

Re: The Never Ending Party 2.0

I don't mind sitting on a chaise at the pool, I can't swim.
What kind of food goes good at a pool party?
