SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
When I see a change in license plates, I know the fall in South Florida is here.    If it falls below 90 at any time, we say  "WOW !   Did you feel that cold front?!"   About that time we start drooling for oranges from our trees very much the way you Northerners start drooling at the thought of the first pressing of apple cider.
Our oranges are our amuse bouche for the oncoming sweet citrus season.   And one of the nicest things are the migrating birds on their annual southern migrations. All kinds of birds not native to us stop for a snack or water in our parts and we sit out with our binoculars waiting for a glimpse of them.   We may still see a sneaky last of the season hurricane but for the most part, we are starting to put away things we had out like the big clunky generators.   We are planning our gardens !   When everyone else is turning over their gardens for next year, we are just starting.   All winter, we are picking tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, lettuces, or we are heading to the local green market to pick up someone else's bounty.    I sit here in my Gator shirt enjoying a cold glass of OJ while my cookies are baking... smile.

Go ahead and enjoy your fall crispy weather because I am busy baking solar cookies.

FBI-Beta-Bot-malware-kills-your-anti-virus-and-steals-data
http://blog.knowbe4.com/bid/336921/FBI-Beta-Bot-malware-kills-your-anti-virus-and-steals-data

This week, the FBI sent out a warning that a strain of malware known as "Beta Bot" can turn off your antivirus, stops access to the websites of antivirus vendors so that your antivirus program cannot call home for fresh definitions, and steals your user name and password when you log into your financial institutions, e-commerce sites, online payment platforms, and social networks.



The Beta Box malware masks itself as the "User Account Control" message box, but when you click on this box, it will infect your computer. If the above pop-up message or a similar prompt appears on your computer and you did not ask for it, or are not making changes to your system's configuration, do not authorize this fake "Windows Command Processor" to make any changes.

Beta Bot is commercial malware, meaning it was made by cyber criminals to be sold to other cyber criminals who can then use it to steal your personal information. It also means the quality is very high, and it's hard to get rid of when your PC gets infected. So have another look at the screenshot above, as it is much easier to prevent this infection than cure it which will likely require a trip to the helpdesk or your computer retailer.

The best way to get rid of this popup is to press ALT-F4 to make it go away.  You can also click on the red X at the top right, but do not click on the Yes or No at the right bottom.

Please !

Fall Bloomer




Rhodophiala bifida -- Oxblood Lily, Schoolhouse Lily
Originally a native of Argentina, these naturalized bulbs were introduced to Texas by German settlers, but are gaining popularity across the nation. These are tough plants that will naturalize in almost all locations, preferring partial shade to full sun. After they flower, they send up striped, bright green foliage. They bloom around September and their foliage remains green all winter. I have a few clumps in my garden, and some planted in a concrete planter that I inherited. In September that first year, they surprised me when they popped up in the pot. I've left them mostly undisturbed and the bulbs continue to multiply. They will come back every year with the fall rains. Vivid deep red color.

How to save tomato seeds


Slice tomato in half
1. Cut the soft tomato (it must be very ripe) in half across the middle (not from stem to blossom end). This will reveal whole pockets of seeds, making them easy to remove.

 
Remove seeds
2. Scoop out the seeds into a bowl.

 
Cover with water
3. Cover the seeds with a few tablespoons of water.

Let sit for 4 days until mold is thick and stinky
4. Let the seeds sit on the kitchen counter until a thick mold forms. This will take four days or so. Once they smell like dead fish breath, you'll know you're close to being done.
 
Wash seeds
 
5. Rinse the seeds clean in a sieve.
Let seeds dry for several days

This recipe gently borrowed from
Daily Dose


CROCKPOT CINNAMON ALMONDS
Ingredients:
1 1/2 C. Sugar
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp. Cinnamon
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 Egg White
2 tsp. vanilla
3 Cups Almonds
1/4 C. Water
Directions:
In a medium sized bowl, mix together sugars, cinnamon, and salt.
Set aside. In another medium sized bowl, whisk the egg white and
vanilla until it’s a little frothy. Add almonds. Make sure the almonds
are thoroughly coated in the egg white mixture.
Add cinnamon mixture to the almonds and toss until coated.

Thoroughly spray with the stoneware of your crock pot with non-stick
 cooking spray and add the mixture of almonds and sugars.

Cook on low ( with the lid on) 3-4 hours stirring every 20 minutes.
In the last hour, add the 1/4 C. of water and stir well. This ensures
 a crunchy yummy coating. (*make sure after you've added the
water that you continue to cook the nuts for another 45 minutes to an hour.)

You have to stir really well, especially as it gets later in the cooking process.

Line a baking sheet with parchment and spread the almonds flat to cool.
 The almonds will be sticky at this point, so make sure you separate
them a little and have no large mounds.

CREAMSICLE CAKE!!

1 Pkg Yellow Cake Mix
2 Pk Orange Gelatin
1 Pk Vanilla Instant Pudding
1 Cup 2% Milk
... 2 Grade A Large Eggs
2 Tsp Imitation Vanilla
1 Tub Whipped Topping

Bake the cake as directed in a 9 x 13" pan. Let cake cool completely. Poke holes in cooled cake. Mix 1 package orange gelatin dessert with 1 c. boiling water and 1 c. cold water. Pour over cake. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Mix pudding mix with cold milk the other package of orange gelatin dessert and vanilla. Beat by hand with a whisk until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping. Frost the cake with the pudding mixture.
***
For a layered Creamsicle Cake: Make the cake batter as directed, then batter pour evenly into 3 round 9" cake pans. Bake cakes as directed and let cool

. Then, make the orange gelatin as directed on the package — but with this version, you'll let the gelatin set up instead of pouring it into the cake. We recommend using your round cake pans, or using a 13 x 17" jelly roll pan (1" deep cookie sheet with edges). Once you pour the liquid gelatin mixture into the pans, it will need to be refrigerated for about 4 hours. Meanwhile, make the pudding mixture according to the original recipe. Finally, layer in this order: cake, gelatin, pudding mixture. Repeat once more for a 6-layered Creamsicle Cake.

 JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.



On the first day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher.  The supermarket manager's daughter brought the teacher a basket of assorted fruit.  The florist's son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers.  The candy-store owner's daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy.  Then the liquor-store owner's son brought up a big, heavy box.  The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit…She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it.  "Is it wine?" she guessed.  "No," the boy replied.  She tasted another drop and asked, " Champagne ?" "No," said the little boy... "It's a puppy!"

  Finally, the answer!

.... and that, my friends, is why the chicken crossed the road.

Little Johnny was at his first day of school. The teacher advised the class to start the day with the pledge of allegiance, and instructed them to put their right hands over their hearts and repeat after him. He looked around the room as he started the recitation, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his eyes fell on Little Johnny, he noticed his hand over the right cheek of his buttocks. "Little Johnny, I will not continue till you put your hand over your heart." Little Johnny replied, "It is over my heart." After several attempts to get Little Johnny to put his hand over his heart, the teacher asked, "Why do you think that is your heart?" "Because, every time my Grandma comes to visit, she picks me up, pats me here, and says, 'Bless your little heart,' and my Grandma wouldn't lie."

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp


'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
