Let It Snow

Snow… I love it!
Everyone doesn’t like snow. I was talking to a lady the other day when it was expected to snow. She told me she hated snow and sure wished it would not snow. Why? I wondered. I told her I love the snow and was like a kid when it snowed. And I asked her why she did not enjoy the snow. She told me she had lived in Minnesota for 20 years, and she had seen enough for several life times. So now I understood.

Here’s an interesting link about snow, snow flakes and snow crystals. Check it out: It have some very interesting pictures of snow flakes like the two shown below:

Here’s the recipe, in case you’re interested:

Peanut Butter Balls

1 Box........... Powdered Sugar
1 ½ Cup....... Creamy Peanut Butter
2 Sticks........ Margarine
1 Tsp........... Vanilla
18 oz...........Chocolate or butterscotch chips
½ Cake........ Paraffin wax

Mix with fingers (use disposable gloves) until the mixture holds together like dough. Roll into little balls and place on cookie sheets. Place the cookie sheets into the freezer to harden for a short time while preparing the dip.

Melt 18 oz. of chocolate or butterscotch chips and ½ cake of paraffin wax over hot water (use a double boiler) until smooth, then turn the burner to low.

Dip the balls into the the dip of melted chocolate or butter-scotch. You can dip the balls by using two spoons and rolling the ball between the spoons. Or, you can put toothpicks into the balls to dip them. Allow the balls to dry. If using the toothpicks, remove the toothpicks immediately after dipping. Then place a little of the dip onto the top to cover the toothpick holes. Enjoy!

The thief bears a burden we cannot see. What he takes is for his present folly, but the load gets heavy as he nears eternity.

Perhaps we are thieves ourselves robbing God and other of our time which could be for good deeds rather than selfish time.

Joke of the Day

A football coach walked into the locker room before a big game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we really need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play."

The player agreed, so the coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, - "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this:

What is two plus two?"

The player thought for a moment and then answered, "4?"

"Did you say 4?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he had given the right answer.

Suddenly, all the other players on the team began screaming, "Come on coach, give him another chance!"
