I really hate snakes! Especially the rattlesnakes! Growing up in the country one thing was always said to us. “WATCH OUT FOR SNAKES!” That could have been my first sentence spoken. Saturday evening, I lost my little granddog Millie. Yep, to the devil himself, a rattlesnake. Millie wasn’t bigger than a couple of pounds of hamburger, but as sweet as a giant.

I would like to take this opportunity to talk about memories. This just happens to be one of my favorite topics of conversation. There are good memories and bad memories. The only kind of memories that I like to make or remember are good memories. When you make a good memory it is easy to share.

This is a very popular barbeque sauce for beef or pork. Spareribs cook especially well in a slow cooker. They come out very tender. It is a good idea to brown them in a skillet before putting them in the Crockpot. Brown about five minutes each side. 4 to 5 lbs.

Last week’s newspaper had quite a few mentions of City business because right now there just seems to be a number of things happening around town. The City Commission did pass an Ordinance to lower the speed limits on the state highways through town, and those signs should be in and installation should begin in the next couple of weeks.

O the signs they are a changin.’ From real estate to ribs. From Grosse Hardware to…(stay tuned). All is change. Change is good. Everything changes. Texas Deadwood BBQ has left the building. Well, almost. The little building, that is. And is moving next door into the big building. So now you can have your brisket and eat it there too. Change. Change a tire. Change your shirt. Change jobs. Change your mind. Some resist change. Beware. They say what you resist persists. Some ...

Have you noticed that it seems to be especially hot this summer? I saw a couple of days ago that Death Valley was only a few degrees hotter than Llano on that particular day. I take my dog out to walk and I swear she says, “Hey… I’m wearing a fur coat.

While these rolls don’t fit the “Practical Baker form” completely, the end result is worth the additional effort. The rolls are light, fluffy, and taste great. They make great buns for small sandwiches, and when sliced and put in a toaster, they’re wonderful as morning toast. You could also whip up some red-eye gravy and pour it over them!

ger/aug 12 col-kendal There was a movie that came out in some specific year, which I don’t care enough to look up, called ‘The Great Outdoors.’ It had John Candy and Dan Aykroyd in it, and some other people, and some really rude raccoons. This movie was made before John Candy died, in case you’re wondering. Anyway, at one point in the movie, John Candy went into a bar in a small town and met one of the regulars.

I wish that the news wouldn’t report all the bad stuff for one week. Only the good stuff. The bad guys don’t need the publicity! If they get any notoriety it should be on the back page. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear all the good stuff that’s going on in our country?

Raw APPLE CIDER VINEGAR has been touted as a health tonic for many years. Its use for health is documented back to the time of Hippocrates in 400 B.C. Improved DIGESTION and WEIGHT LOSS are two well known benefits of taking raw apple cider vinegar. The “raw” component is essential because the vinegar needs to be alive with active enzymes and cultures.
