Oh, 'Dita, I'm So Thankful you are Safe, and Everyone Affected by the Fires are in my Prayers. (((((((Hugs))))))!

I Found a Precious Video of our President a Few Days Ago, and Wanted to Link to it Here for Any FRiends who have't Seen it but Might Want to:

OUR PRESIDENT

Thank you, yorkie. It’s always interesting to see stuff from the older threads, and how much we’ve changed - the welcome graphics are certainly more dramatic (due in part to being much larger!) than those we did 3 - 4 years ago.

It is heartbreaking watching the news and seeing the fires destroy so much, leaving people with nothing but ashes where their homes once were. (and personal belongs that can never be replaced) The air that you breathe must be so awful, I just pray that there won’t be huge numbers of people with serious health problems later for those who can’t escape the smoke and fumes.

It is really hard to watch the news reports. I had to switch the channel yesterday, as all it showed was the flames and smoke. Although, they did feature some residents taking pizzas and other snacks and beverages in to the firefighters.

It was awful that 500+ homes burned down at the Oakridge Mobile Home Park, many of those people retirees, I think.

Yes, we’re going to have bad air for awhile. I’m not sure when the wind will shift to onshore flow again....I worry about the very elderly, ill and frail.

Thanks, (((Billie))).

I cannot imagine how those poor people are coping. Talk about Coping With Uncertainty.

It seems that these fires happen every year. I don’t think I could live there with the uncertainty of whether you are going to lose all in the spring landslides or the fall fires.

Prayers going out to everyone affected by this latest disaster.

Thank you for reporting in, Dita!

I know this is and has been a real disaster there in your
area, Dita, and I continue to pray for the folks who lost their
homes and that no one is injured or killed by this monster
fire.

I am thankful that you were able to stay indoors where the
air could be controlled. I hope that this ordeal is over
soon and that the brave firefighters and air support are
able to make headway and get it/them put out!

Oh my goodness, Kitty, that was special. I hadn’t seen it. And Veterans are very special people, aren’t they?

I’m thankful I’m safe too:-), (((Kitty))). And I wish everyone could have been so. Very few fatalties were reported, but so many homes lost.

Hubby and son may visit some wineries one afternoon. If so, Marissa and I will stay so she can play on the beach. The past two years she has met other kids there and had fun.

We stay at a Suite Motel that sits right on the beach. It is our anniversary gift.

Thank you so much for posting the link.

President Bush is such a caring person. We are all going to miss him very much. He has been fighting the DC left and the MSM for 8 years. He has earned a rest.

Thank you, Mr. President!!

Well, you can try it again in the morning, because the music and the opening graphic simply HAVE to be viewed together. They HAVE to! You will see why. AND, whisper, whisper....it's our favorite singer. LOL

Just remember that ANYTIME there is a link to click, you can right-click it, and one of the first options is "Open Link in New Window" - that's the one you want, then when it opens, simply minimize that window and you won't lose your place in the thread you're reading - it will just BE THERE when you minimize the link that opened. :)

I will look the next time I go to Walmart, too. After all, it's the bread rising and baking that makes the house smell so heavenly!

There are bags of frozen dough balls available at WalMart which one can thaw slowly in a 120 degree oven and bake then to make dinner rolls. If you put two in each cupcake well, they rise to make ‘butt rolls’ and the yeasty smell as the thawing and rising prior to baking is a wonderful scent in a house! I buy the bags and rise six to ten butt rolls at a time then nibble ont hem during the week. Bags come with 36 dough balls and they keep nicely in freezer of the fridge. Slow thawing then rising makes a yummy anticipation. You can even place several on a cookie sheet with foil over them to thaw, then put them together in one large dough ball and let rise again, to make loaf bread! (I make cinnamon raisin bread loaves this way.)

Goody, goody!! Last time you posted our favorite singer, I emailed him to me and I listened to it this morning..."You Are So Beautiful". I love to hear him sing that one.

Rhodes Bake ‘n’ Serve Dinner Rolls. I just went to the fridge to check the bag. Thaw in a 100 degree oven with foil over them to prevent drying of dough surface as they thaw. There is nothing like fresh raised and baked bread!

The cinnamon raisin loaves are made with sugar and cinnamon (combined in a container at cup sugar to tablespoon of cinnamon; I make it often enough to keep a mixture handy at all times) and white raisins added to raised dough, then raise dough a second time int he bread pan (I use silicone loaf pans).

You can spray the pan with butter flavored spray.

You can also make wonderful 'pop'n'fresh' croissant rolls with cinnamon and raisins in them as you roll the dough before baking.
