Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Central at the Weather Channel has determined that Irene will be a major threat to the Eastern coastline of the U.S. We can thank our lucky starts that we could be missed here in Georgia.

It reminds me that we all need to be thinking about our Emergency Kits and posting important numbers in a safe place! Having a trustworthy tree removal company during emergencies is a MUST.

For those of us living in the south metro Atlanta area I'm posting one the most reliable and professional companies to trust during severe storms. Call Danny and Tina at 678-378-8420 and let them take a look at your dead, diseased and downed trees!

Rottie-loving Maxx

Rottweiler-loving Mad Maxx

Mad Maxx doesn't wander far from home. And I know this how? Because he magically appears from nowhere when I cook on the kitchen porch!

Maxx is a gentle boy and perceives rottweilers as close family! He's enjoyed relationships with three rottweilers. He and Zena have enjoyed the strongest bond but every one of our rottweilers have been trained to accept Maxx as "their baby" and love on him as if he were "kin"!

He's lost so many of his family these past few years and now spends most of his time with our older blue-eyed white cat named Sister-but given the opportunity lavishes his friend Zena with loving hugs!

True to form he sat patiently as I prepared lightly-battered golden onion rings for Friday's dinner. Thanks, Maxx!

Double Chocolate Gelato

So rich and creamy this recipe from 1968 almost doesn't need to be churned!

This is one of those recipes worth learning and adapting to fit a reasonable diet but I will admit that the fat content astounds me!
