1939 Recipe for Lemon-Cream Doughnuts! From American Cookery Magazine!

American Cookery Magazine one

 

Published by the Boston Cooking School, American Cookery is a like a slow stroll through yesteryear. The January, 1939 issue is a favorite that I have found on my recent antique mall search and rescue expeditions! It better be one of my favorites…I tried to balance on a stack of books to reach the old magazines. I could not find any salespeople at all. I finally found a yardstick to try to knock off just a few of the magazines. This 78 year old American Cookery magazine was the only one to fall to the floor. 

 

I sort of had to buy the magazine after I pushed it on the floor and then proceeded to (by accident!) step on the magazine. Since I was receiving stares from shoppers and becoming rather notorious…I bought the magazine and rushed to my car.

 

I think that I will wait a few more weeks before going back to that particular antique mall. I think that there might be behavior rules posted…like…do not get any items down by yourself.

Ask for help immediately!!??!!

    My Answers!

    How did I start my blog? 

    I began my blog in late March, 2016. I was planning on retiring from my 18 year teaching career in June and I thought that it would be fun to begin writing again. My first degree was in Journalism and I worked at newspapers for seven years…until we had our first child and I decided to stay at home for a while and just be a Mom! I absolutely loved working at newspapers, but the hours were very long and not conducive to family life!! I really intended to go back to working at newspapers. I had worked in Editorial and also in Retail Advertising. I also was involved in the “Newspaper in Education” program and loved going out to schools to give talks about the role of the newspaper in the community! So…after our children were a bit older, I started another career…this time in teaching…first at our church Day School and then in Title I public elementary schools. These are schools for the economically disadvantaged…an unbelievably rewarding career. However, I really missed writing and that is why I decided to try blogging! So far…blogging has been a wonderful experience and I have met so many new friends from around the world!

 

Advice to New Bloggers!!

  1.  Be friendly to as many other bloggers as possible! Comment on their posts! Learn about their lives and customs! I have found bloggers to be thoughtful and kind… with hearts of gold. We all have different interests and different opinions, but I think that we are all dedicated to increasing as much positive communication as we can in our world.

  2.  Write about a variety of topics! Do not be afraid to talk about decisions that you need to make or about something difficult that you encountered or about the exciting things in your life! Be honest and open!

No Doubt a Ride On the Precipice of Danger…Telluride Jeep Trail!

I absolutely love Colorado.

I totally realize that I have made this statement before…no new information here! I like the beauty of the mountains, the cool mountain air, the friendly mountain people and I like the mountain jeep trails. These trails define the word “precipice” to me!!

 

CRAZY…Did I hear you call me crazy? There must be a lot of crazy people out there…the jeeps are rented continuously! Anyway…count us in on the jeep trail ride…again and again and again!!

 

The following fun, frightening, ridiculous, exciting, dangerous, exhilarating video is of the ride to Imogene Pass near Telluride, Colorado. Honestly, the views are the best… just do not look down to the side of the trail. Look to the right, to the left, straight ahead…you will see all of the natural beauty of Colorado. Amazing! I will never tire of being in the mountains! Now for the video…

 

 

 

Looks fun…right? Well…anyway…think about riding the jeep trails someday! All you need are your camera, your sunglasses and most assuredly a large amount of nerve!!!

No Qualms. Why? Evidently Student Felt Entitled To Bring Python to Graduation.

 Texas_Southern_University_seal

A student at Texas Southern University (located in Houston, Texas) brought a three year old Ball Python to his college graduation this past Saturday. Sadly, the young man finished college before he learned how to consider the serious and quite possible ramifications of his decisions. The students does not seem to have any qualms about bringing a snake to graduation. His statement to the news media…

 

“I told everybody this is my graduation, so I’m going to do what I want to do. So I’m going to bring it and that’s what I ended up doing.”

 

Ball Python

 

Oh really? Your graduation? Your very own individual graduation? What about your fellow graduates? Do you actually think that you are more important and unique than them? 

Do you honestly think that you can do whatever you want to do…anywhere you go? That is how your behavior appears.

 

Texas Southern University included the following information on the school website regarding their graduating seniors and the importance of the event:

 

“Commencement is a solemn and special occasion in the lives of students, and they are expected to behave in a manner commensurate with the magnitude of the occasion. While attending commencement exercises, students and their guests are expected to maintain decorum that is reasonable and befitting of a public event of special significance. Since commencement exercises are formal events, graduates are expected to abide by the University’s policy on appropriate attire that is announced in advance of the ceremonies.”

Yes…you were evidently entitled to graduate from college. You were not entitled to bring a Ball Python into an arena filled with graduates, parents, children and friends. All it would have taken to disrupt the entire graduation was one person screaming at the sight of the snake…and that easily could have happened. Just think about the results of just one person yelling!

NO…YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT…NOT AT  ALL.

Tyler Texas! Where Pink Azaleas and Red Roses Abound!

Tyler Azaleas one

Home on the Azalea & Spring Flower Trail

Bright colors of a multitude of flowers, a floral scent in the air and the natural beauty of East Texas describe Tyler, Texas. Known as America’s Rose Capitol, Tyler presents the annual Texas Rose Festival in October. Tyler is home to so many wonderful flowers that the city also hosts the annual Springtime…

 Azalea & Spring Flower Trail… a driving and walking tour through the historic and absolutely beautiful Azalea District.

Located just 95 miles east of Dallas, Tyler is a city of over 108,000 with every cultural opportunity coupled with a strong business base. However, Tyler maintains a friendly Texas ambiance that makes a visit fun for the entire family.

I have loved Tyler for as long as I can remember…I grew up in Longview, Texas…about 37 miles east of Tyler. I even played my accordion at a Friday night variety show at a Tyler city park that just happens to have an amphitheater! Located very near the Azalea District, Bergfeld Park is still vibrant today.

Azalea Trail History

quoted from the following link…

Azalea & Spring Flower Trail

 

“While oil booms gave Tyler an economic head start in the 1930s, azaleas and rose blooms gave the city its beauty. Azaleas were introduced to Tyler in 1929 by Maurice Shamburger, one of the city’s early nurserymen. Pleased with the results of a test garden of azaleas, Shamburger shipped the colorful plants here by the boxcar loads from Georgia.

After completing his garden in 1929, Shamburger discussed the beautification potential of azaleas with Mrs. Sara Butler of the Tyler Courier Times Telegraph. Mrs. Butler not only encouraged Shamburger to promote azalea plantings in the city, but planted a number of bushes at her own home on Charmwood St.

That home site, along with several other gardens on Lindsey Lane, soon became springtime showplaces with their colorful azalea blooms, and Tylerites began buying the plants by the thousands. Some of the thick, towering azaleas at older homes on the Trail date back to the 30s and 40s.

By 1960, the blooming azaleas were attracting much attention and that year the Chamber of Commerce established a marked route. The first Trail featured 60 homes on a five-mile route.

The Trail was an instant success.”
