    Spring ahead thursday, #575!

    IT's time to do the DayLight Savings thing!!!!

    Time to change the clocks and all the batteries in you smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors too.

    Since it's a crazy, early time change, how's about a breakfast buffet - for those who have to wake up early on MOnday..

    Corned beef hash, pigs in a blanket, eggs/omelets, sausage, bacon, bagels, lox, coffee, tea, milk, OJ - the drink - not the football player, and some rye bread?

    Done!

    I'm so excited about DST. It means Spring is right around the corner. Yipee!!!!

    Breakfast??? You bet. Hey Richard, how about some biscuits and gravy. We can't get that up here, and did ya hear??? Our liquor laws are changing and by Summer, we can purchase wine, beer and spirits in grocery stores. Finally we are catching up.

    Yup.....bread, eggs, milk, vodka.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Do you have room for me, Doris, tuck and the edster?

    We have some bizarre booze laws here.....no hard liquor in the stores and some pharmacies sell.
    You cannot by booze on a election day until 6 p.m. and there is one boubon distillery that operates in a no-booze county.
    Done!

    I thought last week was daylight savings time, but seeing as I rely on my computer and related devices for the time, know they change automatically! Our smoke detector beeps if the battery gets too low, thank goodness Paul has sound-location ability, or I'd not have figured out from where the beep was coming!

    That sounds like a really nice breakfast. Coffee with Bailey's would go really well with it. Sometimes I spike French toast mix with Bailey's...yum!

    Finally a break from the deep freeze. Great morning for a run. Got the smoothie maker going. Lots of frozen blue berries and raspberries. Anyone?

    Oh, Slick, have you never heard of it?

    A white sauce - now referred to as Bechamel - with flaked pieces of dried beef - theoretically available at the meat counter. We had this sometimes as kids, though I never heard of it in the other term* until I was older!

    (Google it, and you'll see SOS)

    Un cafe espanol.......The LOK is lurking about, let me check the L&F? Oh my goodness, CCB is really good!!!!

    Done!

    QoP, I'll trade a smoothie for a plate of brekkie?

    DONE?

    Hi PM.
    I'll mix up a BM if you serve?

    karen,
    The guy across the street fought in Korea and he mentioned SOS to us once. We giggled about it and then I started to hear the term more and more connected with school cafeteria food........

    Too funny.

    Ayup, Dad was in Korea, and that's where he heard that term, too. The quality of the beef certainly makes a difference!

    Well, now to find out if it started there.

    I had heard a 'square meal' referred the dishes sailors used in the old days. When they has a mess call, a full ration covered the square dish they used - so that term came to represent a 'full' meal.

    So I wonder if the plate came to be called a shingle?

    My dad had an old vaudeville joke: "When I was a kid we ate round steak because we couldn't afford a square meal."

    The origin of that saying is really interesting, RICHARD. I didn't know that.
