A great quote~

I just read this in a cookbook and had to share it with you here! :)
"I find television very educating.
Every time somebody turns on the set,
I go into the other room and read a book."
~Groucho Marx

How ironic!! Usually, people encourage you to watch TV to learn something, not the other way around! I agree with the humorous message in the quote , though!!

Hi Cora,
Thanks for your comment. And thanks for asking your brother about the picture thing.
I know how it is to be reading the same book as someone else =D! David told me that he is almost done with the 3rd book, and so I better finish up the forth book quickly. I told him I should have it done by tonight, we'll see, I am already way into it as it is very interesting!! Sometimes when Grace and I are reading the same book, we will each hold our place in the book, cock our heads and read! We have not done that for a little while though!
About the dog, I DO wish I knew more, but I don't. The people never got back with us (yet). We responded within the hour the posted it so I would be surprised if someone inquired before us but I guess that would be possible! Maybe they are busy and have not checked their emails, I don't know. But I know God knows what dog we should get, so I am resting in that as much as I want a puppy!
We were at my sister's place today and they have one of our dog's puppies it makes me miss dear Princey so bad. Prince's son Leroy and Prince look alot alike and act alot alike so it is kind of like we still have him!

What are you making for dinner? We are having pork chops and I am being called to the table, so bye!

Thank you for the comments on our blog, Cora!! =D

This is an excellent quote!! I am adding it to my favorite quotes!! It is so true!!

Have you ever seen any of the comics by Ben Lansing? Our family has enjoyed his comic archives very much!!

Well, I'm also a fan of a Benjamin Franklin quote that says, 'Early to bed and early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy, and wise!'

P.S. My mom (and I) were wondering how you got the cream to whip? We used to get raw jersey milk and we could only make butter out of the cream when we tried whipping it?

Good night!!

Thanks once again for all the comments, friends!

I can just see you and Grace sitting together, reading from the same book. :) A bit challenging, I imagine, but doable!

I hope you're able to get the dog the Lord has for you soon as I know how sad it is to be without a dog!

What did I make for our evening meal you ask? Well, let's see... I cooked up some noodles (with lots of cheese); made some deviled eggs; warmed up some hot chocolate; and then served the rest of the gingerbread cake. :)

Thank you so much for sharing about the comics by Ben Lansing! I'd never heard of him, but went to his site last night and am going to show it to my family soon, as I know they'd like it very much as well. :)

You asked about our cream... We usually use a cream seperator to get the cream out of our cows' milk, but we haven't seperated recently, so all I did was I scooped off the top layer of cream from some milk that was sitting in cold storage for 3 days, being sure not to scoop too deep. It didn't whip as thick as when we use cream from the seperator, but it still was very delicious!!! That's interesting that your cream just turned into butter... Were you using an electric mixer to whip it? Sometimes, we try whipping cream in our Vita-Mix but that's so powerful that if you don't get it turned off at the right second, you'll have butter instead of whipped cream!

Funny, I've never heard that quote before, but that is exactly what I do 9 times out of 10.

I'm glad you enjoyed Mr. Lansing's comics!

Yes, we used an electric mixer....But we didn't use a cream separator..When we get cows though I'll have to try it again...Right now we're getting milk from a dairy that uses Holstein cows and it is very liquid milk - unfortunately it is a conventional dairy but is still much better than pasteurized milk!!
