I Forgot!

I wanted to mention that I have a new blogger follower. She lives in Georgia and found my blog while she was cruising "blog world". The post that caught her attention was one I did about fixing Spam and using "shoyu".

She is Filipino and her husband is part Portuguese, born and raised on the Big Island. The largest of the Hawaiian Islands is called Hawaii, however is commonly known as "the Big Island". His Portuguese ancestors came from the Azores Islands of Portugal to Hawaii, my Portuguese grandmother's family also came from the Azores Islands. He is a retired Army helicopter pilot. He had been stationed at Ft. Rucker during his Army career and they lived in Ozark, AL which is one of the towns that surrounds Ft. Rucker. Enterprise, where my Denise and family live is also one of the towns surrounding Ft. Rucker.

She is a sketch artist and has a blog showcasing her sketches. I need to add her blog to my blog list here on my blog. Her sketches are beautiful. The thing that really perked my ears up as I read her blog is that she and her family are Christians. I thought to myself how wonderful that a fellow believer would find my blog and then also have connections to "home" and Ft. Rucker.

The other thing I wanted to draw attention to are two blog buttons that I've added to my sidebar. I don't remember exactly how I found these food blogs. They have the most incredible recipes on their blogs. I am going to try the apple sauce recipe that "Eat at Home" blogged about today. It looks so easy and Gerry loves apple sauce so I'm going to give it a try. There's another one that I was going to add, however, for some reason it didn't work when I copied the link.

Okay, that's it for tonight. Take care!!
