Good Friday Morning





March 7..............................

Roasted Crown Loin of Pork

National Crown Roast of Pork Day

You certainly must be kidding, right!? National Crown Roast of Pork Day... Why you ask?

Well, frankly, we do not know. And, why not just Roast Pork Day? Why does it have to be a crown roast pork?

 What we do know, is that it is National Crown Roast of Pork Day, a special day to cook and eat pork. To participate in this day it must be crown roast pork. Any other just will not do.

Employee Appreciation Day

When : First Friday in March

If the boss can get a Bosses Day, then it's only fair and appropriate that you, the employee, gets a day in your honor. Employee Appreciation Day honors employees everywhere.

Celebrations today should be created and executed by your company. Recognitions vary widely, and may include a lunch, snack, cakes, or other munchies, and small recognition gifts. Don't expect a day off. Chances are, it just won't happen.

As we researched this day, we wondered if it was a coincidence that Employee's Day and Bosses Day are six months apart.....hmmmmmm.

National Salesperson Day

When : First Friday of March

National Salesperson Day is established to recognize the value of the truly professional salesperson. This day also recognizes the hard work performed by professional sales people.

Who is a salesperson? This is a huge part of the workforce. Some examples include:

  • Register clerks at the grocery store
  • Clerks at your convenience store
  • Door to door sales people
  • Car salesman
  • Life Insurance agents
  • Mortgage brokers and loan officers
  • Traveling salesman
  • Manufacturer's reps
  • The list goes on and on

Celebrate today by offering thanks and appreciation to any sales people you come in contact with today.

It's also National Be Heard Day...

National Be Heard Day could be a way to help individuals who don't feel that their spouse, kids or co-workers are listening. The holiday is actually a way for small businesses and entrepreneurs to make their presence known in a world of large corporations, popular brands and big box stores. Shannon Cherry created National Be Heard Day "to help entrepreneurs, small business owners and solo professionals find their voice, tell their story and be heard."  You also need to be seen, so use Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook to promote your small business.

Today Is also Cereal Day

John Harvey Kellogg served the first breakfast cereal during the week of March 7, 1897, to patients at his sanitarium in Battle Creek, Mich. He and his brother "invented several foods made from grains, which were forced through rollers to make long sheets of dough. Called away while cooking wheat one day, when the brothers returned the wheat seemed overcooked.  Funds were tight so they decided to put it through the rollers anyway, and as each wheat berry was flattened it emerged as a thin flake -- they had accidentally invented 'flaked' cereals, and the Sanitarium became famous for its wheat and corn flakes" according to the Western District Historical Society's pamphlet, "A Flakey Patent Case."

* Not only is cereal a good choice for breakfast, it makes a nutritious afternoon snack.

* Make cereal treats as an inexpensive snack.

* Bread fish, chicken or vegetables with your favorite unsweetened cereal.

FOXY LADY: Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty, slim, 5-4 (used
to be 5-6), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion.
Matching white shoes and belt a plus.
LONG-TERM COMMITMENT: Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband
looking for someone to round out a six-unit plot. Dizziness, fainting,
shortness of breath not a problem.

and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take
our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.
WINNING SMILE: Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a
dedicated flossier to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel
BEATLES OR STONES? I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my
Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the air guitar. If
you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and
listen to my boss collection of eight-track tapes.
MEMORIES: I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. If you can
remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.
MINT CONDITION: Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair,
many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Doesn't run but
walks well

Dryer Sheet
When it comes to laundry, you can skip the overpriced dryer sheets. Instead, take a piece of aluminum foil and crumple it into a ball that's about 2-3 inches in diameter. Then place it in the dryer for a frugal way to eliminate static. The best part is that it can be reused over and over for up to six months.

If you like the fresh scent that dryer sheets provide, try using essential oils, like lavender. Just put a few drops on a washcloth and then toss it in the dryer with your clothes.


Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold.
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. 
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Add  a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. 
It  will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of  spoonfuls 
of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. - Theodore Roosevelt, 1901-1909

The real leader has no need to lead - he is content to point the way. - Henry Miller, 1891-1980

Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash. - George S. Patton, 1885-1945
