A few  years ago, we happen to be in the Smokies just before Halloween. I saw a sign that advertised "Cat's head biscuits."  I didn't know what that was but I was determined to find out.  We stopped at a nice log cabin restaurant... not a chain -- a local place to eat. I figured it was some kind of Halloween joke.   But when I saw those huge biscuits --- WOW ! As Big as a Cat's Head !

Cat's head biscuits are simply BIG FAT BISCUITS about the size of an old barn cat's head.
Here's my favorite recipe
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup cake flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
8 T. unsalted butter - cut into 1/2 pieces and allow to soften
4 T. vegetable shortening cut into 1/2 pieces
1 1/4 c. buttermilk - come on y'all get the full fat stuff

Heat Oven to 425 degrees
Grease a 9 inch cake pan
Whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Ok now we are going to get our hands in there...
scatter the pieces of butter and shortening over the flour mixture and use your fingers until it looks like coarse meal.
Stir in the buttermilk until combined.
Spray a 1/2 c. measuring cup with cooking spray and scoop and drop 6 heaping mounds of dough into the cake pan.   Bake on middle rack.

Yeah...this is some trouble but your kids will be talking about their Mom's cat's head biscuits when they are grown and have kids of their own.


I decided in the 8th grade while watching the movie, Psycho,  all my Halloweens would be happy, not scary.

Never let your children surf the net alone. Always check links from this column. I have checked them but they can be hacked between the time I put them in and the time you read this.


Required for Halloween

1/2 cup white glue
6 Tbsp. water
food coloring
1-4 tsp. Borax
1-4 Tbsp. water
Mix the glue, 6 tablespoons water and food coloring until it is dissolved. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon borax into 1 tablespoon water. Add to the glue solution. You will get a very thick clump of slime when the two mix. Pull the clump of slime out of the glue mixture and put it in a separate bowl. Mix another batch of the borax solution and add to the remaining glue mixture. Repeat until all the glue mixture is used (about 3-4 times). With clean hands, knead the slime to mix. This will take about 10 minutes and is not very difficult as the slime easily separates between your fingers. If a looser, more slimy texture is desired, knead in a bit more water. The more water you add, the slimier it gets. The slime does not leave a residue and does not get stuck on anything. Store in an airtight container. This can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.


Face Paint

1 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream
food coloring
Mix all ingredients together in an old muffin pan and you are ready to paint. Repeat for each color.

 Ten Reasons Adopting a Cat is Best Option | petMD

Black cats have a hard time getting adopted out of shelters for a variety of silly reasons.  Some people think they’re scary and others think they won’t show up well in selfies.
Nobody should be judged by the color of his or her fur.  Superstition and ignorance have given black beauties a bad rap, but under that ebony fur beats true blue hearts.

“The stigma on black cats is ridiculous,” says Jenna Rita, an aspiring veterinarian technician.  “I have proof that the bad luck myth is all a lie.  My two black fur babies have brought me nothing but good fortune and pure joy.” Gerry Shaps, founder of the nonprofit Army of Dreams agrees.  “Hershey was my black Bombay cat for 15 years,” he says.  “When he stood up, his chest puffed out like a king.  He was the most adventurous and bon vivant cat ever.” Here are 10 reasons why you should love black cats too:

They’re always fashionable.  Their black coats will never go out of style, and a black cat will never clash with any color you’re wearing.
You can give them exotic names like Shadow, Midnight, Sable, Jet, Onyx, Raven or Panther.
Egyptians in ancient times worshipped them.  Killing a cat back then, even if by accident, was punishable by death.  Seems appropriate.
They’ll impress your houseguests.  Dirt is camouflaged so they always look clean and they’ll never look out of sync with any home décor.
You won’t need to spend a penny on a Halloween costume.  They’re already dressed perfectly for the occasion—hey, they might as well cash in on their scary reputation.  Boo!
They help you celebrate your inner Goth.
Black is slimming, so they will always make you look your best in selfies.
“Star Trek” and “The Simpsons” feature black cats, so fame is probably right around the corner for you and your black bestie.
Black cats are terrific at playing a competitive game of hide and seek.
Black cats always look regal, sophisticated, shiny and sleek.  They can’t help it.
Want to up your karma bank account?  Save a life and get some love.  Adopt a black cat!

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.

You know you are too old to Trick-or-Treat when:

10.  You keep knocking on your own front door.

9.  You remove your false teeth to change your appearance.

8.  You ask for soft high fiber candy only.

7.  When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.

6.  People say...'Great Boris Karloff Mask,' and you're not wearing a mask.

5.  When the door opens you yell, 'Trick or...' and you can't remember the rest.

4.  By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.

3.  You have to carefully choose a costume that doesn't dislodge your hairpiece.

2.  You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

And the number 1 reason Seniors should not go Trick-or-Treating:

1.  You keep having to go home to pee.

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!'
