NOVEMBER POPPIES



Well, my fish are still enjoying their Halloween Pumpkin so I will leave it for them to rest in. They all like to go into it, who knew.

We had a bad wind storm on Saturday, winds around 110 miles per hour. It took all the stuff off the varanda and blow over the bbq and it is a mess inside. I can not fix it so Dave will have to whenever he is finished working long days (6 a.m. until after 7 p.m.) with the hydro company to get power back on for the people in New Brunswick. It is mostly around Moncton and up North. We where lucky to not lose power. No large trees around our hydro lines, just that awful wind that scared my poor cat. Jasmine dose not like loud noises and she was terrified that night. She thought someone was coming to get her. Poor Bay.

On a lighter note, I have been making bagels and bread again. Tried a new way to make bread and found a great new recipe for bagels. I made cheese bagels and plain bagels and bread in an unusual tin. Have a look.









The bagels taste as good as they look and the bread was wonderful with a roast for dinner last Sunday. You can enlarge the recipe if you press on it then view and then enlarge to read it.


LET US NOT FORGET OUR VETERANS ON NOVEMBER 11TH.

 They gave their lives so we could be free. God Bless All of Them.



                                              In Flanders Fields


In Flanders fields the poppies blow,

Between the crosses row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead, Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved, and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders Fields.


Take up our quarrel with the foe,

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high,

If ye break faith with us who die.

We shall not sleep, though poppies grew

In Flanders fields.
