Happy Tuesday Guys and Dolls:
Hey fish lovers August is 'NATIONAL CATFISH MONTH." Catfish is eaten in a variety ways all over the world. In Europe it is cooked like carp. Here in the good old USA it is covered with cornmeal and fried. You can also have it broiled, baked or blackened. How they eat it in the Asian countries varies and I really don't want to know how. I guess I watch too many of that Travel Station Show "Bizarre Foods", with Andrew Zimmern.
It is "POETS DAY". if you are a fan or better yet a reader of poetry read your favorite poems. For all you poets never give up on your writing even if it does not sell you have the gratification of being called a poet. I wrote a book it sold copies but I'll never see a million sold. I wrote the book because it was something I always wanted to do. Call it a bucket list item but I was happy I did it and enjoyed writing it.
Let's say Happy Birthday to the Oldsmobile. It was produced for most of its existence by General Motors and was founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897. In its history it produced 35.2 million cars plus at least 14 million at its Lansing, Michigan factory. Olds finally was phased out in 2004 just like a Star Trek phaser pistol on a Ferengi.
Ice Cream lovers and that includes Joey Z who has found a new favorite in the flavor we celebrate today "SPUMONI DAY." Spumoni is an Italian ice cream made with layers of different colors and flavors. The one I buy is Edy's made with Cherry, Pistaschio and Chocolate. If you have never tried Spumoni please do it is delicious. I'm always telling you what to eat but listen to Joey Z he usually right on target in the pickle barrel.
Roe and I are planning to catch a movie this week a senior discount of course. Have a great day and a wonderful evening.
