Yesterday, we got in our shipment from Dixie Diner. We are now restocked on all of the items that we were out of including the Blueberry and Creme Muffin Mix, the Bakesquick Mix, the Maple Oat Granola, and the Apple Cinnamon Hot Cereal.
We also got in several new items from them: Lemon Meringue Pie Mix (includes the filling, crust, and the topping), Yellow Snackin' Cake Mix, Strawberry and Creme Muffin Mix, and a Bun and Roll Mix for those holiday cook outs.
Green Tip: The old recommendation that leftover and expired medicines be flushed down the toilet has been superseded. The EPA says many drugs are unchanged by wastewater treatment, so they may harm fish and encourage development of drug-resistant germs. Finishing all of the medicine eliminates the issue, and it's almost always recommended by the prescribing doctor. You can also check whether your local hazardous waste program will accept expired medicines. [Brought to you by Page-a-Day calendar.]
I added a badge to the blog yesterday. You can see it on the right hand column underneath the subscribe link. It is from a company called Brighter Planet. It's a company that focuses on carbon offset purchases and renewable energy. They have a credit card that uses its reward points to purchase carbon offsets. I know that a few of my friends on other blogs have already added the badge. If you would like to help in the campaign and you have a blog, click on the badge and add it to your site. Don't forget to email them and let them know that you've added joined. (Warning: They will email you.)
Happy Birthday Wishes to Jewel Kilcher. Known simply as Jewel, this singer/songwriter/actor/poet has had one amazing career. The rise of her career is almost legendary in the music business. While at one point she was living out of her van from gig to gig, after her first album released in 1995, she became an instant success. In fact, Pieces of You has become one of the top selling albums of all time with over 12 million copies sold.
Honorable Birthday Mentions: Philip James Selway-British drummer for Radiohead, Drew Allison Carey-American actor/comedian/game show host, William Nathaniel "Buck" Showalter-MLB manager.
