I’m usually pretty leery of cookbooks written by celebrity chefs. After all, many of them include fancy dishes that require lots of preparation time. However, I really enjoy the cookbooks by Food Network star, Rachael Ray. Her books are filled with quick and easy recipes for delicious, everyday meals. Everyone knows Rachael Ray. Her constant smile and fun, energetic personality have made her one of the Food Networks biggest draws. In 2006 she launched her magazine, Everyday with Rachael Ray, and in 2007, she started hosting her own syndicated daily talk show.
Ok, we’re getting to that time where we’ve done our swimsuit workouts, (or not) booked our vacations, and bought our self-tanning lotion. Now all we need is a good book and a beach. So what’s your summer read?
I'm going to start a blog on cultural differences among people of various ethnic origins and languages. Let's call it "ESL Tales." The purpose of my blog is to celebrate the differences that make us so unique.
Have you ever walked through the grocery store and just watched people? Everyone has a different outlook on life, and sometimes it’s interesting to think of the many different perspectives that people have.
During my last trip to the store, I made an effort to look around me at the people I was shopping with and not just run through as quickly as possible. Usually, I’m in my own little world, looking for specials and checking my list, but that night I was focusing outward.
I hate to brag, but…our new library catalog is A-mazing! And how could it not be with a name like Enterprise?! I was skeptical at first…change comes rapidly in business and life, and I’m not always ready for it. But this time, it is an awesome change for the better!
Remember how, (in the old catalog) if you hit the "go back" arrow in the upper left corner, the old catalog would just log off? And you lost your search? No more of that with Enterprise!
How many of you have seen those advertisements on television about identity theft? Usually, after telling you all the bad things than can happen to you if someone gets your personal information, they offer you a service to help ensure that if you ever experience something like this, you will be protected. And often for a very hefty price. I would see these ads and think that they were just trying to frighten people into buying something. Nothing even remotely like this could happen to me.
"Little GTO," "Hey Little Cobra," and "Mustang Sally - you’d better slow that Mustang down…"
If these titles bring back the good ole days for you or if you are just fascinated with "muscle" cars and hot rods, come to MGC on June 8 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. We’re hosting a "show up and show off" car show in our parking lot to help celebrate our fifth anniversary!
What do Macon and Columbus, Georgia; Richmond, Virginia; Boalsburg, Pennsylvania; and Carbondale, Illinois have in common? They, along with approximately 25 other places, claim to be the origin of Decoration Day, now known as Memorial Day.
I know that we have a lot of pet lovers here at the Riverside Branch. My husband and I share our home with two rather elderly cats, one of whom sometimes drives us nuts! When my daughter got her own apartment and left us empty-nesters, she wanted to leave with Cuddles, "her" cat. After much discussion, we both decided that such a move would be too upsetting for a sixteen-year-old cat.
