Spring Cleaning Guide

Make your own cleaners and save money !
Glass Cleaner ~ Combine 2 T lemon juice, 1 T white vinegar, and 1 cup hot water in a spray bottle. Shake and go to work
Dishwasher Detergent ~ Mix 1 cup of Borax, 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup kosher salt, and 1/4 unsweetened lemonade-flavored Kool-Aid

47 Awesome Home Organization Tips You Might Have Never Thought Of

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland...

3 Surprising Facts About Guinness - Health News and Views -

Does olive oil prevent heart disease?
Short answer: Yes
The health benefits of olive oil come from the presence of polyphenols, antioxidants that reduce the risk of heart diseases and cancers.
But to get these healthy compounds, consumers should buy good-quality, fresh "extra-virgin" olive oil, which has the highest polyphenol content. Most commercially available olive oils have low levels of polyphenols associated with poor harvesting methods, improper storage, and heavy processing.

Beer Muenster Cheese Soup
This is a satisfyingly rich and flavorful soup that takes an amazingly short time to execute. It can be made several hours or even a day ahead and reheated slowly over medium-low heat. If you want to serve it in a bread bowl as they do at the restaurant, see tips for making one below.

4 1/2 tablespoons margarine, at room temperature (from a stick)
4 1/2 tablespoons flour
3 cups water
1 1/2 heaping tablespoons chicken base (we used Better Than Bouillon Brand)
6 cups heavy cream
2 1/4 cups Guinness
1 1/2 pounds high quality muenster cheese, shredded
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon hot sauce (we used Tabasco) or to taste
1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
Chopped chives, for garnish
In a small bowl, cream the margarine and flour to make a roux. Set aside.
In a large, heavy saucepan, bring the water, chicken base, cream and beer to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Slowly whisk in the roux and return to a simmer 15 minutes, stirring frequently. (Watch the pot and adjust the heat so the mixture does not boil over.)
Reduce the heat to low and very slowly whisk in the shredded cheese in small additions, making sure each addition melts completely before adding the next. Add the sugar, hot sauce and salt, stirring to make sure the sugar dissolves. Serve hot. Garnish with chopped chives. Makes about 13 1/2 cups.

Baily's Irish Cream
"Irish whiskey mixed with cream and sugar with hints of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and almond. Will keep for 2 months if refrigerated."

1 cup heavy cream
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed
1 2/3 cups Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

In a blender, combine heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, Irish whiskey, instant coffee, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Blend on high for 20 to 30 seconds. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. Shake well before serving.

•2 eggs
•1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together.
Roll dough into small balls and flatten with a glass
dipped lightly in oil and then in sugar.
Bake 6-8 minutes.

Bagpiper at a Funeral
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a Funeral Director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.
He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's' cemetery in the back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw that the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the
diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the
side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man. And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I
Never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Apparently I'm still lost... it's a man thing

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer. It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'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!'
