Happy Hump Day / 1-31-18

Happy Hump Day
Wowzers wonders it’s Wednesday already, can you believe that. And when we hit that happy hump of the half way mark we will be 1/2 way through the week as well. See, I told you if you put on a happy face that it would go quicker that way, and for those of you who are still dragging and can’t believe it’s only Wednesday, make that change and you will see a crazy difference. Now the journey has not been easy this week, I get it, I know that we still need to get to the top, plant that flag and then move off and over the back side. I get it. But really, by mid day, it will be a shorter trip to the end then back to the beginning, like we want to do that anyway. But that is exciting for me and really helps me to focus. When we get to the top, plant your flag, then take a moment and look back from where we came, then turn an make a mental map of where we need to go, then get moving, our destination is not the top of the mountain, either for the day or the week. Now let’s get them hikers pulled on and laced up, take hold that staff and then let’s get this day hopping. Now there is no shortage of those in true need, keep your eyes open and as we come on any, we will stop and lend a hand as we are able. This applies not only to those in true need, but to those around us who just need a voice or word or hand to get them through the day. We all need help now and then, be willing to help whenever you can. Now let’s go get this day going and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Terrific Tuesday / 1-30-18

Terrific Tuesday to you EveryOne,
Oh what a grand and glorious day it is, it is, yes it is, yes it is, Am I convincing anyone yet? Why are some weeks so much easier to get it going, and others you can’t seem to find the on or go button for anything. Now as I mentioned yesterday, mornings for me are best spent in bed sleeping, but knowing that getting it going always is better for me cause I know the sooner I start the sooner I finish. While we are thinking about it let’s go ahead and get them hikers on, and you better grab that staff, I could have used that thing yesterday and forgot it. So let’s get those peepers open and look for those raise of sunshine, even if we have to look through some pretty thick clouds. Now along the way we will encounter those who are in great need, we will take the time to stop and lend them a hand in any way we can and see them to the next check point. Now, no one is going to get this day going for us, they can be an encouragement but you and I have got to make the move ourselves. So let’s get it going and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy and share it every step of our way.

Gooood Moooorning / 1-29-18

Gooood Moooorning Everyone,
So here we are at another Monday, looking for the umption and gumption to it get going. Ok, So no I am not ready for every Monday to start, no I am not a morning person and flat out I hate mornings unless I am still in bed sleeping till about 8:30 or 9. But lets get honest, the days business does not wait for anyone, the world does not slow down or stop so we an get on and off, and I look at it the sooner I get it going the sooner I get to finish for the day. The other major thing that I have learned over the years and it took me forever to get this, but that attitude really does make a difference, even if you are working along in your own home and not around a bunch of office staff. Both, when choosing a positive attitude works much better, first if by yourself it gets the day going and moving quicker and the job seems to move along at a better rate. When I was in an office setting with others, it is amazing how a negative attitude can spread like wildfire and put everyone around you into a grumpy mood and just causes the day to drag out. A smiling face, a pleasant voice, a positive attitude also affects those around you, and can go a long way into making it a pleasant day versus a dark blue day. So as we go along, put on that happy face even if you have to grin and bare it. We need to get those hikers on and get this show on the path, and as we do, let’s remember there is no time to overlook those who are in need and walk on by. We need to be open to their needs and help in any way we can. Now let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day in everything we do and say.

Freaky Fantastic Friday / 1-26-18

Freaky Fantastic Friday EveryOne,
That’s right I said freaky fantastic, cause we are going to take this day all the way to funtastic land and no coming back. We have worked our tails off this week and so far our labors are already producing wonderful fruits. So this is not a day to find the lazy chair or rocking horse and just kick bak and take it easy. No, no, in fact we need to toss the hikers to the back of the closet and grab those sprinters and lace them up well. Then put away the staff and get out the rally cap and turn it round. Need to take everything that we put into this week so far, wrap it up and stuff it back through for one last squeeze in the press to get every last ounce out of it. We need to leave nothing on the table including that wonderful attitude with a side order of big time smiling. Yes folks we have a dash for the cash a race for the craze, a, oh you get the point. We are going for it all and we are going to have fun with it. Now remember just cause it’s Friday does not mean we get to look the other way and ignore those in true need along the way. So get it straight right now, that when we come on those in that hurting needing way, we will stop, we will offer our help, and we will see them to the next point before finishing our day. We have been so blessed and we need to give back and pay forward, that help will never go void. Now let’s get it together and let’s go get it done, and let’s do while making us a most Happy, Happy day and all weekend long.

Marvelous Morning / 1-25-18

Marvelous Morning EveryOne,
Great new day it is, why? For new adventures, new journeys, and new opportunities. That’s right, yesterday is behind us, we can’t go back and undo what was done or what was said, so time to move on. Tomorrow is not here, we can not bank on, or deal with what is not happening yet, and since there is no guarantee we will have tomorrow there is no reason to we should worry about it. We can only deal with what is before us and that would be today and today only. That is why it is said to take one day at a time and if we take care of the day that has been given us the rest will take care of itself. So as our Thursday is before us, we do know a couple common threads run through each Thursday, one and biggest it is a workhorse of a day, this is a day we need to put our heads down, our hand to the plow and bring get whatever needs done, done and whatever needs attended to dealt with. Since we do not have a choice whether or not we are going to go through this day, if we are alive and living we are going through it, we might as well do it with a brilliantly face shining happy attitude. Either other around you will grab hold of your excitement and run with you or you will scare the bad eggs away, which you really don’t want around you anyway. So let’s get them hikers pulled on an take hold that staff and let’s get to the starting line. Yes, we still have that obligation to stop and lend a hand to anyone we come across that are in true hurting need, and see to that needs to the best of our abilities. Them get back on track and take it on, all the way to the next checkpoint. Now let’s get that smile going and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Fishing ?? & Brownie CheeseCake / 1-24-18

Are you into fishing? Are your week days filled with dreaming of where the fish will be biting on the weekends. Does your definition of fishing season know no boundaries and are only bound by the number of layers you have to put on so not to get frost bit. Do you plan your vacation around whether you want to freshwater fish or salt water fish? Do you consider yourself a bass pro master just one fish short or one inch short on that large mouth bass of being on the pro circuit. Well my hat is off to you. Me, I am just a once in a while barely wanna be fisherman. My memories start back when I was just a youngster, and we would go visiting a parishioner of my Dad’s church in Parkersburg, WVa. This old guy had a huge farm just over the river in Ohio and we would go and he would set me up fishing in one of his stocked ponds. I don’t remember catching anything but thats my earliest memory. However once we started coming to the Cape my Dad, (and I’ve told this story before) but Dad would take me over to a friends house who lived on Swan Pond in Dennis Port and we would take his row boat out and I would fish for perch. whatever we caught would take back to the cottage clean and Mom would fry up for us. Also a few of the men from the church we attended here on the Cape had boats and would invite us to go flounder fishing, or some other small. The problem was that my Dad was and still gets sea sick when a small boat is drifting and swaying or rocking. He gets greener than a fresh head of broccoli. So going out deep sea fishing for Stripers, BlueFish, SeaBass he was never able to do for me. After I got married, my father in-law would take me north of central Ohio and had a special place he would go to river fish for rock bass, large mouth and small mouth bass. But that was about it. My Grandfather when he retired and finally moved to Florida used to go fishing quite a bit in Lake Okeechobee, but since we did not go down and visit him as he was living with his sister I was never able to learn from him. As this new year comes upon us, I am hoping to learn a bit more about fishing and start to enjoy going and seeing what I can land. Maybe even one of those coveted Strippers that would feed us for several meals. Or just being able to go to some places and do some kayaking and fishing while visiting different ponds, lakes streams and rivers around the Cape and Massachusetts. This endeavor I will keep you posted on from time to time and let you know if it works out and if I actually catch anything. Until next time have a great and wonderful especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
This week’s business report, first up goes to The Cook Shop in Brewster at 1091 Main St (6A). I could actually just include the entire Lemon Tree Shops in this. But I want to point out the Cook Shop specifically because of their unique collection of items. They have a great collection of teas, and honeys and specialty items, then if you need a gadget, like a cookie scoop or want a tea ball, spatulas of all sizes and shapes, tea pots, and this is just on the first floor. Take it upstairs and you can find cookware, and bake ware, food processors to espresso machines. You might have driven by before and not thought much about them, but don’t pass them by anymore. If you need they will have and if for some reason they don’t they will help you get. They are open 7 days a week weather permitting 10-5. And while you are there, check out the rest of the shops there in the Lemon Tree, Village they too are open year round.
Next up is restaurant report, Another year round place that is excellent when you need not just a good hamburger but a great hamburger. They are located in Dennis Port at 673 Main St (Rt 28) and are open 7 days a week from 11:30am – 11pm. They do have more than hamburgers, and honestly all their food is outstanding and they have a great local beer on tap selection, one of the best. But we love the burgers, as they put them on English muffins, that don’t get soggy and do not give you tons of extra bread that fills you up instead of the burger. And their fries are yum, yum. So when you just don’t feel like cooking and are craving some far out burgers, try the Red Nun in Dennis Port, You will not be disappointed.
Hi De Ho good friends, What can I say this is week two that the young man has found me without having to do much searching about. Well the end of last week we nearly had ourselves another weather scare but lucky for us most of it moved to the interior of New England and left us folks along out here on the Cape. Now the problem we’ve been having is a might bit of the fog. You get those southerly winds a blown at just the right angle, and the warmer air collides with the cooler air that wants to come visit us from our Canadian friends, and well. Warm and cold don’t usually mix, in fact that’s why our friends east of the great pond have so much of of this fog stuff. It’s all courtesy of our friend the Gulf Stream that comes right up our own east coast and our little spit of land called Cape Cod redirects that stream right over to United Kingdom. Yup no thanks to us for their lovely foggy weather. HA HA. Anyway, I was able to get out the other weekend in between the fog and temperature swings some soft shell clam digging. In just about 2 hours I pulled in a nice ripe amount for me and the lady to enjoy a great Sunday after church meetin’ lunch/dinner. Somehow these cold water delights are some of the sweetest tasting opposed to when the water warms up, they are still good but, nothing like right out of these ice cold waters. Nope much else to report going on, not like the summer months we we have got all the goings on happening. But, just the standard weather reporting and monitoring the radio waves and making sure the equipment is functioning properly. I guess for now this is another rap on it from out here on the cliff of Cape Cod. Hope ya’ll have a safe week and just keep us on the radar for you trip planning come this years vacation. Have a great and wonderful now, especially if you can right here on old Cape Cod.
So desserts are always special for me. I am not picky about much of my food, I will eat just about anything, anytime, anywhere. However desserts have always been one of those things I could take or leave. It’s not that dislike desserts but I just don’t have an overly big sweet tooth. Except when it comes to pies and cheesecakes. These two categories you can just stop the show, hold your horses, do whatever is necessary to put the brakes on, but I love pies, hey they are health right? They have fruit in them (ok a lot of them) right? So score one for pies. Then there are cheesecakes, I was familiar with about 3 different kinds or styles, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago. But in doing my research discovered several other kinds out there I was not familiar with. For a good listing see a good listing on Food Editorials at the following web-address (http://www.streetdirectory.com/food_editorials/snacks/cheese/different_types_of_cheesecakes.html). Or you can check out Wiki at (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheesecake). And one last sight so to give you variety is on Broom with a View at ( http://www.broomwithaview.com/2015/07/types-of-cheesecake/). So hope you enjoy reading. So I stick with pretty much the standard American Cheesecakes and they are not as hard to make as everyone wants to make it out to, but it does take a little time and patients but it is well worth the time and effort and I feel confident that many of you out there that have never tried it are capable. So hang with me here as every month we will explore a new cheese recipe and have some fun with it and enjoy, Now it’s time to get on with the show.

This week’s recipe: Brownie Cheesecake

1 pkg German chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 pkg cream cheese softened (8-oz pkgs)
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla (the real stuff please)
2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla (again the real stuff please)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl blend cake mix, coconut, butter, and 1 egg on low speed until mixture is crumbly. Press very lightly into ungreased 8X13x2 baking pan.
Beat cream cheese, 2 eggs (put in one at a time) 3/4 cup sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Then spread over cake mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes. Mix sour cream, sugar and 2 Tbsp vanilla until smooth. Spread over cheese cake. Cool. Refrigerate at least 8 hours, (suggestion, cut into smaller pieces as this stuff is rich.)

Happy Halfway Day / 1-24-18

Happy Halfway Day EveryOne,
Wicked wonderful Wednesday to you, and I hope we are finding you wide awake and in wonderful spirits. We have the joyous opportunity today to pass the half way point of this week, while taking the the top of this mountain for our own then making the move to start down the other side. Yes folks call it halfway day, hump day, hill topper day, or whatever you want, but it will be a celebration to plant that flag at the top. When we get there I hope you take a few moments to turn and see where we have come from and realize just how good of a job we are doing. Then turn and make a mental map of where we need to go then move on off the top as the top is not our final destination for today. We can and we will make great time today and we will cover much ground, let’s get those hikers pulled on and laced up and take hold that staff for all the support we need. Along the way there will still be those that are in a hurting way, we will stop and we will help in any way we can and see them to the next check point to the best of our abilities. Now let’s round up the gang and let’s get this day underway, and then let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long in all we do and say.

Sunshine Greetings / 1-23-18

Sunshine Greetings EveryOne,
Oh another beautiful morning it is. Everyday that we are giving the opportunity to take another breath is a blessing that we should not overlook or take for granted. Life is a gift and we need to share our blessings with others. That is why I find it so important to help those in true need along the way. We are a mere breath, paycheck or some other tragedy from being in their shoes. But we do not give expecting to get anything in return. We give because we have been given to already. As this day goes forth, we will need to check our own attitudes, it is so easy to end up in the dumpers and if that downer attitude spreads quickly like wild fire to those around us. So even when we are dumped on, learn a lesson, smile and do good back and instead of joining the downers, flip that frown upside down and turn a bad situation into a positive any way you can. Now only will you be blessed but others around you will be as well. Now let’s get those hikers on take hold that staff and let’s get this parade on the march again. We have a destination to get to and let’s do it with a smile, and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Maui Woui Monday / 1-22-18

Maui Woui Monday EveryOne,
What another wonderful way to start a new week, the abilities to open your eyes and see the ground from the topside instead of the underside. I find i quite invigorating to know that I am not looking at the inside of a pine box when I wake up and gives me a motivation to do something rather than just roll over and give up all hope. Now that we’ve established to the better percentage that we are still alive and survived the weekend, let’s not waste the opportunity that has been given us to do something with it. Now not every situation is going to be our first choice of involvement but we have to deal with what we have been dealt more times than getting to pick what we are going to do. So how do we make it through? We choose to take the attitude of gratitude, we adjust our outlook and make sure our output is the best we can give. By doing our best, and giving all that we can and making sure that whatever has been sent our way has been handle to the best of our abilities, although it may still not be what we wanted as least we can take pride that we have given back the best we could, that will be noted down the road and we will have learned something for the next task. And by doing out best we will be able to smile at the end of the day. So pull on them hikers and grab that staff and let’s get to the starting line, as we do, along the way we will come on those in true need and we will stop to help in any way that we can as see them to the next point. Now that we have covered our bases for a Monday morning, let’s get this parade underway and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long in all we do and say.
