We actually connected again via Facebook. It's a wonderful tool for keeping in touch and finding lost friends. Turns out she had re-married and I did not know her current name. If you haven't tried Facebook.com, you might be surprised how easy it is to get in touch with a long lost friend!
When we decided to plan a day together, I knew she would cook something fantastic. In the past, my friend was known for wonderful fresh meals. I actually looked as forward to the meal as the companionship. Let's face it..... great food made from scratch is hard to come by with all the hectic lifestyles today! Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
I arrived and instantly smelled the wonderful aromas that reminded me of my Grandma's kitchen. I miss Grandma and her home-cooking. My friends know that I am not one to turn down the flavors of life. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time loosing weight!? That's a whole different blog for a later time :(
I took some snap shots of the wonderful meal. It was fresh, simple, home-made, and delicious. I hope to get the recipes from Deb, and once I do I will post them here also. I hope you enjoy. For lunch we had Spinach Quiche, fresh Bread, and a colorful Salad.

College campuses, cities, and restaurants across the nation have pledged to kick their bottled water habits by joining the Take Back the Tap campaign. The truth, they have found, is that bottled water is not generally safer, cleaner, or healthier than water from the tap.
Tap water costs roughly $0.002 per gallon while bottled water can cost anywhere from $0.89 to $8.26 per gallon. The reality is that 40% of bottled water is nothing more than tap water with added minerals.
Every year we fall more than $20 billion short of what is needed to maintain our public water and sewage systems. Congress needs to establish a clean water trust fund to ensure that current and future drinking water supplies are safe and healthy.

To figure your Carbon Footprint you simply need to answer a few simple questions that take only a few minutes. If you don't like the estimate you get and want to reduce your 'carbon footprint' try some of the following suggestions:
1) Avoid using the dryer. If possible, air dry your clothes
2) Set your washing maching to clean on the cold water cycle
3) Replace light bulbs around your home (and/or office) with Compact Fluourescent or LED bulbs
4) Turn off lights when you leave any room.
5) Regulate the temperature in your house ( 2 degrees can make a huge difference!)
6) Clean and/or replace your air filters on a regular basis. This helps them work more efficiently
7) Turn off the faucet while you're brushing your teeth (will save 25 gallons of water per month!)
9) Unplug and turn off all electronics when you're not using them
Hope this helps and good luck reducing your CARBON FOOT PRINT!
The world wide demand for cars and trucks has left behind an abundance of surplus man-made materials. Each year tens of thousands of yards of seat belt webbing are rejected for the slightest color variation, making the strap useless to the car makers. Designed to be used as a life saving seatbelt in the car, this high quality material is made to last (Remember the crash dummies?!). Great purse to brighten up your winter.
Dimensions: H 9.5” x W 11.5” x W 4.5”
