I succeeded in making quark with organic milk. w00t!

Most organic milk is ultra-high pasteurized and that is useless for culturing. We have a brand of milk, Natrel, that makes organic milk and fine filters it. It didn't say anywhere on the bottle if it was ultra-high pasteurized, but I suspected that it wouldn't be with the fine filtering which extends shelf life by ~30 days. I'm really pleased that it worked.

Went to the local deli today and they had bacon flavored thinly sliced ham. I made a sandwich with the ham, sliced tomatoes and some of the Mezzetta mild pepper rings. Delicious!

When I received my electric bill this month, it showed my usage was 4 times normal.

I contacted the service department by computer asking them to please check it out as my bills for the last 5 years have never showed anything like this.

They sent me a revised bill for my normal amount and a letter advising me that they had corrected the error.

It pays to complain.

el joanne , look for something called bacon salt.

it's awesome on sandwiches, eggs, tomatoes just off the vine in the garden, etc..

Went to the local ball field this evening to watch my 4 year old grandson Tyler's first practice at T-ball. He did great. So fun watching those little guys try their best, and at the end of practice they all got to run the bases.

cheryl, i think it's great that you go to your grands' practices and games. i've had many parents or guardians that just drop off their kids and want to know when to pick them up, or even have to call or text them when to come.

coaches notice that stuff.

develop a good, ass kissing relationship with the coach (little food treats for the team after practices works. not for after games, though. you never know if they'll win or lose, and it's confusing to celebrate after a loss).

then, the real secret is to tell the coaches to watch and study the same cartoons and kiddie shows on tv that their players watch afterschool.

during practices, if you joke around about it and/or imitate the characters or phrases that the cartoons say, the kids are amazed that you know something else from their life and immediately draw better attention to what you're trying to teach them.

a simple trick, but it makes them crush their opponents, er, i mean play their best...

BT, that's brilliant, to watch the cartoons and TV shows that interest the kids.

DH used to umpire Little League baseball. He did T-ball once and it must have been quite entertaining. Kids running to third base instead of first, etc. I bet it's a blast watching your grandson play.
