As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed. Vincent Van Gogh

It is a very interesting post. This website seems to be focusing on how to leverage blogs to promote businesses.
Check it out here.
I think it is neat when someone finds my blog and links me.
|You scored as Gambit. Gambit is another loner character. He loves Rogue. He has a very cool deboner personality. He's done things in his past that he's not proud of but he atones for his actions by fighting for peace with the X-Men. His weapon of choice is the playing card. Powers: Charges objects with kinetic energy by touching them, then they explode like grenades.|

I found out this about MDA:
From their website:
Here are a few examples of what your help enables MDA to do:
$25 provides an annual flu shot for one person
$63 funds one minute of research
$100 funds a support group session
$200 covers a clinical diagnostic exam
$600 sends a child to MDA summer camp for a week
$2,000 goes toward purchase of a wheelchair, a set of leg braces or a communication device
If you would like to help us out, you can make a donation to MDA on Mrs. P-E's behalf here.
This is part of the Christian County Lock-Up at One East Market in Taylorville. The deadline is 10/25/2006.
We appreciate any donations you can give.

Husband: Man this sonic shake is so good. I am going to have to blog about this. All my readers are going to know how good this shake is.
Wife: All your readers???
Husband: Yes, all my readers!
Wife: Don't you mean your mom?
Husband: No, I have more readers than my mom.
Wife: Really? More readers than your mom?
Husband: Yes, she was supposed to tell her neighbor about my blog.
What a great commercial! I can totally relate to this. Hope you can see it soon.

CROCK POT LASAGNA
1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
1 large jar spaghetti sauce (such as Ragu in the 1 lb. 10 ounce jar)
1 package (8 ounces) no-boil lasagna noodles
16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1 lb. ricotta cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan/Romano cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the beef, onion, and garlic in a little oil in a frying pan. Drain off any grease.
Add the spaghetti sauce into the browned meat mixture. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, milk, and egg. Beat until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Then mix in the mozzarella cheese and the grated cheese, so that all the cheeses are combined.
Grease the slow cooker/Crock Pot with some vegetable shortening on the bottom and sides.
Put about 1/4 of the meat and sauce mixture in the bottom of the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Put a layer of noodles on top of that (break or cut them if needed). Put about 1/3 of the cheese mixture on top of that. Then repeat with sauce, noodles, cheese for another 2 layers. Top with meat sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until noodles are tender.
Who knew you can make Lasagna in a crockpot!

Heading home from St. Louis, we stopped at Ruby Tuesdays in Litchfield. Ask for a table for 9 in Non-smoking. That would be an hour wait but if we wanted smoking it would be immediate seating. So evidently more people were non-smokers than smokers. I told them that I would try Springfield. So we went to Olive Garden in Springfield instead. Get this, Olive Garden is of course non smoking and it still took us 20 min to get a table. For a Sunday night that seems pretty busy. That does not sound like eating places are suffering too much from the ban to me.
