" And I Love You So "


February is the second month of the year

It has 28 days

It is derived from the Latin word 'Februa' which means purification


FLOWER: Violet, Primrose



Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone
Which hath but twenty-eight, in fine,
Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.

The second day of February is often referred to as Ground Hog's Day. 

The old stories told are that the ground hog comes out of it's burrow on February 2,

to look for it's shadow. If there is sunshine and he sees his shadow, then he goes back

to sleep and there will be more winter time. If he doesn't, then the spring time will begin.

This is a superstition. 

Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14 in most western countries.

  Children give valentines and have a party in school.

Young and old exchange cards with loved ones. This custom is hundreds

of years old, valentine greetings having been found that date back into the 1400's.

The third Monday in February is President's Day. 

Both Washington and Lincoln's birthdays were in February.

It is considered a Federal holiday for celebration of Washington's birthday,

but most states also honor all president's on this day.


If you are unhappy with your lot in life,

build a service station on it.

~ Corrie Ten Boom

Never fear shadows. They simply mean

there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

~ Ruth E Renkel

The greatest gift we can give one another is rapt

attention to one anothers existence.

Awesome Poke a Hole

In the cake

German Chocolate Cake Mix

Prepare and bake as directed in a 9 x 13 pan.

When cake comes out poke holes in it. I use the

handle of a wooden spoon so the holes are good sized.

Pour a can of Eagle Brand Milk over warm cake.

(I use the Wal-Mart brand, it is WAY cheaper)

Then pour a jar of Hershey's Chocolate Fudge Topping

over that. (some have used Caramel,

but I like the Chocolate better)

When cool cover with Cool Whip, (again I use Wal-Mart brand).

Then put 2 crushed Heath Bars on top of that.

(or one King size $1 at Wal-Mart)


Taking orders for Valentine's Day

until February 8th, 2011



 Time to go ... have a great day and enjoy this first

day of February. Join me tomorrow and remember to always be safe

in being aware of everything and everyone around you.
