It is a little chilly today. Our pecan pies are on sale. How about picking up a pecan pie for a nice dessert later on with a cup of coffee. Oh and don't make it a regular cup-spice it up with some hazelnut, english toffee, or kaluha flavoring with one of our Da Vinci Syrups.

Today in History- Reported in the Dallas Morning News- George W. Bush who on this day assured a White House News Conference that the country was not recession bound.Ooops!

Births
1901 Linus Pauling, chemist/peace worker (Nobel 1954, 1962)
1906 Bugsy Siegel, gangster created casinos in Las Vegas
1928 Smokey The Bear




Smoky the Bear was the most beloved icon of my youth.Some of it probably was because I also confused him with Yogi Bear and Jellystone Park. At least I thought Yogi was conscientious enough to protect the forests. I was rather shocked at age 7 to discover they were not the same bear. It was ok, after all- a bear in the hand is not better than two in the bush. Huh? I never understood those petite fours or is that metaphors?
