National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance

A day of infamy, the day Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, is commemorated with the National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance each year on December 7. On that day in 1941, more than 2,400 people died in Japan’s attack on the Hawaiian base of America’s Pacific Fleet. Hundreds of aircraft were destroyed or damaged, as were most of the ships in the harbor, and thousands of service men and women were killed or injured. It was an unprecedented surprise attack that precipitated the United States entry into WW II as we sided with the Allies and declared war on Japan.

HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL PEARL HARBOR DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
Send a care package to a member of the Armed Forces overseas

Find a local organization sending care packages—there should be one in your community. Basic grooming needs, phone cards, canned treats, even just a kind note of appreciation are all simple expressions of concern that mean so much to soldiers thousands of miles from home. Get your church or civic organization to help and your impact will be so much greater.

Loved ones staying at home need comfort too
The families left behind often struggle with expenses and loneliness while their husbands and wives are overseas. Adopt a family in your community and be there to offer help. It could be as simple as attending the kid’s games, dropping off some food, or giving a gas card. Small acts of kindness can help keep a family together even when they are apart.

Treat yourself well, too
The life you are living today would be impossible without the sacrifices of December 7 and of all the wars this country has been in. Honor the memory of those lost by living the best life you can, and work to make life better for those coming after you.

WHY NATIONAL PEARL HARBOR DAY OF REMEMBRANCE IS IMPORTANT
It was the worst attack on American soil by a foreign country

The United States was in peace talks with Japan when Japan launched 350 warplanes in a surprise air attack on Pearl Harbor, home of the Pacific Fleet. 330 U.S. planes and 19 ships were damaged or destroyed, and thousands of people were killed or injured.

The Pearl Harbor attackdrew the United States into WW II
Japan’s designs on the Philippines, then a territory of the United States, precipitated theirattack on PearlHarbor in an attempt to destroy the Pacific Fleet and buy time for them to conquer what they referred to as the Southern Resource Zone. Up until then, the mainly isolationist position of the US prevented our entrance into WW II. That position disintegrated with the attack, as the American people united in a call to war —a call that eventually lead to the Allies winning that war.

It is a day to honor our military
This is a good time to think of the hardships and ordeals endured by our service men and women every day and everywhere in the world. The United States is in a position of being the policemen of the world, with hundreds of thousands of service men and women deployed in the protection of our country and people everywhere. Remember them in your actions and your prayers.

International Civil Aviation Day

On December 7 we celebrate International Civil Aviation Day to acknowledge the flight industry’s influence on modern life. It’s incredible to think that in less than 24 hours you can transport your body to pretty much anywhere in the world. Flying has made the world a much smaller place and had a huge impact on our lives. Today we celebrate the impact of flying and are thankful that it has opened so many doors for all of us.

HISTORY OF INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION DAY
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialist organization within the United Nations, established December 7 as the day to celebrate the impact that civil aviation has had on the world. Tourism and business have both been changed forever due to flying, not to mention the cultural connections that have been enabled.

The first International Civil Aviation Day was held in 1994 as part of ICAO’s 50th anniversary and in 1996 the United Nations General Assembly officially recognized 7 December as International Civil Aviation Day. They agreed to try and use the day to reinforce the importance of civil aviation to social and economic development, and to recognize the unique role the International Civil Aviation Organization plays in helping countries to cooperate and bring to life a truly global transit network.

As the UN has now adopted Agenda 2030, a pledge for the reduction of pollution that comes with the end goal of a new era in global sustainable development, the importance of aviation as an engine of global connectivity remains just as relevant. As such, in recognition of ICAO’s 75th anniversary, the council selected the theme “75 Years of Connecting the World” for the 2019 celebrations, which will run through to 2024.

International Civil Aviation Day is a day to enjoy the extraordinary things humans are capable of and to look at the future, as we continue to innovate and bring cultures closer together.

INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION DAY TIMELINE
1924
First round the world flight

Eight U.S. Army Air Service pilots and mechanics flew the globe by air for the first time, taking 175 days to do so.

September 17, 1908
First airplane fatality

Passenger Thomas Etholen Selfridge died after a crash during a flight demonstration at Fort Myer, Virginia

December 17, 1903

INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION DAY FAQS
When is International Civil Aviation Day?

December 7.

What is the role of the ICAO?
The purpose of the ICAO is to adopt regulations and best practices for the aviation industry.

What does ICAO mean?
International Civil Aviation Organization.

HOW TO OBSERVE INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION DAY
Thank a civil aviation worker

One of the most direct—and profound —ways to show your appreciation for a civil aviation worker is to tell them. Pilots and flight attendants may come to mind first, but don’t forget about air traffic controllers, who keep the skies and runways safe for all of us, and baggage handlers, who somehow defy logic and ensure baggage ends up at its final destination. If you are friends with an aviation worker, give them a thanks and a pat on the back this December 7.

Consider employment in the civil aviation industry
If you’re in the market for a job, try doing a little research on the many position available in this industry. You’d be surprised by the wide demand for skills. From labor intensive outside work to marketing and advertising office gigs, you’ll likely find something that fits your needs. Plus, the perks of working for an airline can’t be understated (free airline miles? Yes please).

Get involved
If you’re passionate about helping nations further develop socially and economically, there are many ways you can get involved with the ICAO. The current theme for International Civil Aviation Dayis “Working Together to Ensure No Country is Left behind,” and the ICAO will be holding meetings, events and meetups to discuss how to push this agenda.

5 FACTS ABOUT AIRPLANES
They are sturdy

Some planes can fly for more than five hours after one of their engines goes out.

Airplane air is drier than normal
So remember to keep hydrated and moisturized!

A Boeing 747 is more fuel-efficient than your car.
At 1 gallon of fuel every second, A Boeing 747 offers 0.2 miles per gallon of fuel.

Takeoff and landing are the most dangerous times.
About 61 percent of all fatal accidents that occur on planes happen during these times specifically.

They are all around us
On average, about 8000 airplanes are flying over the world’s skies at any given minute.

WHY CIVIL AVIATION DAY IS IMPORTANT
It gives us jobs

Civil aviation is more than just pilots and flight attendants. The aviation industry includes commercial carriers (think FedEx or United Airlines), private jets, air traffic control, airport management (those nice people who take your bags), manufacturing (Boeing), maintenance, and several more offshoots. All told, the industry supports more than 10 million jobs in the US alone every year.

It’s super futuristic
The aviation industry has given us some of the greatest inventions of the 20th century, and this innovation is ongoing. Airbus, for example, is currently planning its “Smarter Skies” initiative, which it hopes by 2050 will: Decrease flight time of every flight by 13 minutes; save nine million tons of excess fuel every year; and avoid 28 million tons of avoidable CO2 emission annually.

It can build countries
Figures from the UN show that in today’s global economy, for every $100 produced and every 100 jobs created by the civil aviation industry, an additional $350 and 610 jobs are generated in some other industry. So, it seems the road to prosperity is hardly a road at all, and more like a new runway.

The Ultimate Test
The Story:

One night, four college students stayed up late partying, even though they knew they had a test the next day. The next morning, they came up with a plan to get out of having to take their test.

Each student rolled around in dirt and then went to the teacher’s office.

They told the teacher that they had gotten a flat tire the night before, and they spent the entire night pushing their car back to campus.

The teacher listened, and to the students’ delight, he offered a retest three days later.

On the day of the test, the students went to their teacher’s office. The teacher put all four of the students in separate rooms to take the test. The students were okay with that because they had been given a chance to study.

The test had 2 questions:

1) Your Name __________ (1 Points)
2) Which tire was flat? __________ (99 Points)

1. Front Right
2. Front Left
3. Back Right
4. Back Left

The Moral:

Aside from making wise decisions, you always need to take responsibility for your actions. This means not blaming other people for your mistakes, not complaining about the reality of the present moment, and not giving in to other people’s pressure.

“Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day.” - Alice Morse Earle

What a Waste
The Story:

A mother camel and her baby were lying down, soaking up the sun. The baby camel asked his mom, “Why do we have these big bumps on our back?”

The mom stopped to think and then said, “We live in the desert where there is not much water available. Our humps store water to help us survive on long journeys. “

The baby camel then stopped to think and said, “Well, why do we have long legs with rounded feet?”

His mother replied, “They are meant to help us walk through sand.”

The baby asked a third question, “Why are my eyelashes so long?”

The mother replied, “Your long eyelashes offer you protection from sand when it blows in the wind.”

Finally, the baby said, “If we have all of these natural abilities given to us to walk through the desert, what’s the use for camels in the Zoo?”

The Moral:

The skills and abilities that you possess won’t be useful if you’re not in the right environment.

You’ve probably heard of a professional who ditched his or her career to follow their dreams–or the person who remains unfulfilled in their job, but doesn’t try to make a change.

If you’re stuck in a career that isn’t the right fit, you have to do some self-reflection to realize where your strengths lie that are going to waste. Turn to people that you know the best as well as professionals in any given market so you can start thinking about what may be better for you. Think big and remain open to new ideas.

“There’s nothing better than meeting somebody with a great soul, and a great spirit and a good heart.”- Mark Wahlberg

“Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy.” ― Lea R. Caguinguin

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

A very important pillar of Catholic teaching is celebrated on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. There is a popular idea that the day refers to the conception of Jesus by the Virgin Mary. It doesn’t. As a matter of fact, it is actually the conception of Mary herself that is referred to here. Although she was born in the natural biological manner, her conception is believed to be ‘immaculate’ by Catholics because God intervened, relieving Mary of original sin.

HISTORY OF FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
For centuries, theological dispute surrounded the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The argument followed the context of the word ‘immaculate,’ which refers to the belief that Mary – the mother of Jesus Christ, was herself conceived without original sin.

Throughout Christian history, the Immaculate Conception has been questioned by theologians. This topic remained open for debate until December 8, 1854, when Pope Pius IX declared it to be an essential principle of faith in the Catholic Church. The written statement on this is titled Ineffabilis Deus, which clarifies the importance of the divine concept of Immaculate Conception in the Catholic Church.

Many churches, particularly the Catholic Church, hold masses or special services to mark the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on or around December 8. Those that commemorate this holiday always prepare for it prior to its occurrence. In Rome, at the base of the Colonna della Immacolata; which stands at 12-meters tall by the statue of the Virgin Mary, the pope places a wreath. Members of the fire service hang a floral wreath on the arm of the statue.

While some people prefer to host dinners at home for their families, there are several other celebrations as well, creating a festive feel in the streets.

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is a public holiday in many countries. In Guam, it is also known as ‘Our Lady of Camarin Day,’ honoring a small wooden statue which is known as Santa Marian Kamalen or ‘Our Lady of Camarin.’ A procession is then followed by people who pray and honor Jesus Christ through his mother, Mary.

FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION FAQS
What is the meaning of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?

The Immaculate Conception celebrates Mary’s conception without sin.

Is Immaculate Conception in the Bible?
The sacred texts do not explicitly mention the Immaculate Conception of Mary, but there are biblical texts to support this divine tradition.

What was Jesus' conception called?
It is often mistaken that the Immaculate Conception is referring to the birth of Jesus, whereas the event of his conception is called ‘The virgin birth.’

HOW TO CELEBRATE FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
Go to a Mass

Make Mass a part of your observance of the feast holiday! Have your teenagers listen carefully for references to the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Make a Mary candle
This is a great day to make a Mary candle. You’ll need a tall white pillar candle. Use decorations of symbols of the Christ for it and then cover it with white lace or fabric for the remainder of Advent. The white cloth represents mother Mary while the candle represents Jesus Christ.

Prepare a white dish
Look up your favorite meals that are white colored. For example, you can bake a cake with white frosting and an ‘M’ written on it with blue, or prepare pasta in white sauce.

5 FACTS ABOUT FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
Teachings are mostly based on Tradition.

The Roman Catholic Church has based the concept of the Immaculate Conception on tradition along with some passages from the Scripture.

The Immaculate Conception is necessary
As the mother of Christ - the Redeemer, Mary needed to be pure from sin, and was given that privilege by God.

Two areas of conflict
Protestants claim that only Jesus was sinless, and some believe that Mary mothered children before giving birth to Jesus. On the other hand, Catholic tradition teaches that she was completely sinless and therefore a virgin. These two schools of thought have long been areas of conflict.

Not taught in the Bible
Despite its establishment as a pillar of faith, the Immaculate Conception is not directly taught in the Bible.

Honored in the Quran.
There is an entire chapter titled after Mary in the Holy Book of Islam- The Quran. Mary is also mentioned more in the Quran as compared to the New Testament.

WHY FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION IS IMPORTANT
A part of the holiday season

The whole month of December marks the festive season of Christmas- the birth of Christ. Feast of the Immaculate Conception is a part of the holiday traditions and ties in well with the spirit of Christmas.

It honors the mother of Christ
Even though a lot of controversy surrounds Mary in the history of religion, there is no doubt that Mary was a courageous woman, and devoted to the teachings of Christ. Her character was pure and pious, and it is extremely important that we honor her on this day.

Celebrating with family
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception brings with it feelings of love and safety as we commemorate the mother of Christ. We love holidays that give family and friends a chance to get together and be grateful for all of our blessings.

Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day

If you’ve ever noticed any unusual characters on December 8, they might be celebrating Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day! On this day of imagination and time-hopping celebration we pretend that we can move across the years and go wherever we want. Whether you’re entertaining the kids or looking to bring some creativity to your day, we have the best ideas to make sure you don’t get stuck in a wormhole.

HISTORY OF PRETEND TO BE A TIME TRAVELER DAY
Time travel is an important fixture in the science fiction we know and love today, as well as a consideration for scientists trying to crack its possibilities. But despite its appearance in numerous movies, books and TV shows, it’s a relatively new idea.

The earliest mentions of time travel were always about moving forward. Texts like the Ancient Indian ‘Mahabharata’ used a version in which people fell asleep or visited a god and when they regained their senses found that they had jumped forward into the future.

It wasn’t until 1895 when time travel became a two-way street, with the publication of H. G. Wells’ novel “The Time Machine.” The book popularized the notion of a vehicle designed to transport its passengers forwards and backwards in time. The book’s protagonist travels to A.D. 802,701 and observes the future of the human race, before returning to tell the tale to his dinner guests. The movie adaptation was created in 1960, then again in 2002 with Guy Pearce.

Time travel stories became yet again more complex in 1941 with Robert A Heinlen’s short story “By His Bootstraps” which showed the protagonist occupying multiple time-frames at once through time travel, and therefore intersecting with different versions of himself.

Numerous other new stories fascinated by the idea of moving through time and space, including “Back to the Future”, which exploded onto screens in 1985. Meanwhile, in television, the BBC invented “Doctor Who” and zapped it into homes around the UK in 1963. The show featured a professional time traveler – The Doctor – and has enjoyed great success over the years with new characters, storylines and universes. In 2018 Jodie Whitaker became the first-ever woman to take on the role.

PRETEND TO BE A TIME TRAVELER DAY FAQS
Can we ever travel back in time?

The urge to hug a departed loved one again or prevent atrocities are among the compelling reasons that keep the notion of time travel alive in the minds of many. While the idea makes for great fiction, some scientists now say traveling to the past is impossible.

Is time a paradox?
A temporal paradox, time paradox, or time travel paradox is a paradox, an apparent contradiction, or logical contradiction associated with the idea of time and time travel. In physics, temporal paradoxes fall into two broad groups: consistency paradoxes exemplified by the grandfather paradox; and causal loops.

Is time travel possible through the quantum realm?
Until, recently, most studies on time travel are based upon classical general relativity. Coming up with a quantum version of time travel requires us to figure out the time evolution equations for density states in the presence of closed timelike curves (CTC).

PRETEND TO BE A TIME TRAVELER DAY ACTIVITIES
Dress up as your favourite time traveler

With a few wardrobe flourishes you can dress like your favourite time traveler. You could draw lines across your nose to look like the time-twisting Bajoran of “Star Trek”, or don a leather jacket like Christopher Eccleston’s “Doctor Who.” The choice is yours!

Use words from the past and future
Expert time travelers can slip seamlessly into speaking the lingo of the day, so you could celebrate by swatting up on some historic uses of words: behold this bodkin (look at this dagger)! Or reach into the future and pull out some new words to share with others.

Design your dream time machine
The Doctor has the tardis, and Marty used a DeLorean car in ‘Back to the Future’. What would be your ideal mode of transport through time?

5 FACTS ABOUT TIME TRAVEL THAT WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN
Time travel may be achievable

According to NASA the theory of general relativity provides scenarios that would support time travel and has said it may also be achievable through wormholes in time and space. Unfortunately, any living being trying would be unlikely to survive.

Wizards think it’s too powerful
Time travel is first introduced into the Harry Potter stories in “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” when Hermione uses a time turner to take more classes than time would otherwise allow. But in J. K. Rowling’s wizarding world, time travel is only permitted for mundane, everyday purposes, to stop its power being used for evil.

Stephen Hawking said it’s a possibility
The late Hawking proposed that time travel is impossible, however in the years following, the famous scientist became increasingly frustrated that he could find no physical law that would prevent time travel — he then changed his mind, making headlines saying “Time travel may be possible, but it is not practical.”

Time travel may not require a machine
Theorist Roy Kerr postulated that time travel may be possible if you could enter a black hole and exit through a white hole on the other side.

Time travel could begin with particle accelerators
Particle accelerators work by using electric fields to accelerate groups of particles to high speeds, so far, scientists have been able to boost particles to 0.99997 times the speed of light before smashing them into metal foil or other objects and recording the results.

WHY WE LOVE PRETEND TO BE A TIME TRAVELER DAY

Thou Art An Eagle - FLY!

“A farmer took his young son on a hike and they tramped through the meadows and woods. They hiked through the pines and up over the hills.

They climbed the steep mountains and finally, high above the timber line, scaled the crags and peaks they saw a giant eagle soaring overhead. They scanned the cliffs and finally located the eagles nest. The boy climbed up the cliff to where the nest was located. He reached into the nest, which rested on a ledge, and pulled out an egg, which he put inside his shirt. Then he climbed carefully back down the cliff.

He and his father returned home, and the boy put the egg in a nest where a hen was brooding over her eggs. By and by, when the eggs were hatched, each delivered a small chick except the one from which a young eaglet was hatched. Months passed and the eaglet matured.

After the eagle was full grown, a naturalist was driving down the highway out in the country. As he drove by the farmer's yard, he saw the giant eagle. He slammed on his brakes, got out of the car, and went over to the fence. He could hardly believe his eyes. He opened the gate, walked into the yard, and found the farmer. 'Where did you get that eagle?' he asked.

The farmer said, 'It's a chicken.' The man responded: 'I am a naturalist. I know all about these things, and I tell you that is an eagle. Furthermore, I'll prove it.' He picked up the eagle, put it on his arm, and said, 'Thou art an eagle-fly.' The eagle hopped off his arm and began to scratch in the dirt like the chickens. The farmer said, 'I told you it was only a chicken.'

The naturalist asked for a ladder. He leaned it against the barn. Then he carried the eagle up on top of the barn. He stood at the peak of the roof on the barn, placed the eagle on his arm, and said, 'Thou art an eagle-fly.' The eagle swooped down into the yard below and began scratching in the gravel. The farmer hollered up, 'I told you it was a chicken.'

The man climbed down off the barn. He made an agreement with the farmer and the next morning, long before sunrise, he picked up the eagle. He carried it through the woods and over the meadows. He continued up into the hills and the pines, onward, upward, above the timberline to the peaks and crags and pinnacles of the mountains. He arrived at the mountaintop just before dawn.

As the first rays of the sun began to streak across the sky, he put the eagle on his arm. The fresh, cool winds came through the valleys and trees below and swept up to the cliff where the naturalist stood. The eagle breathed deeply. The first streaks of sunlight caught his eye. He stretched his giant wings, almost six feet across. The naturalist said, 'Thou art an eagle-fly.'

The eagle slowly lifted off the naturalist's arm. It ascended into the sky. It soared higher and higher and further and further.

It saw more in an instant than its companions had in an entire lifetime, and from that time forth it was never again content to be a barnyard fowl.”
- Vaughn J. Featherstone

Famous quotes by General Chuck Yeager:
"The secret of my success is that I always managed to live to fly another day."
"I have no regrets about my life. People ask, "If you had to do it all over again, would you do it differently?" No. That's speculation”
"If you can walk away from a landing, it's a good landing. If you use the airplane the next day, it's an outstanding landing."
"There is no kind of ultimate goal to do something twice as good as anyone else can. It's just to do the job as best you can. If it turns out good, fine. If it doesn't, that's the way it goes."

That depends a great deal on how much tequila you brought with you.

Not for me, though. That stuff makes my clothes fall off.

How is your advanced indoctrination into Group Think coming?

Gotta' love working retail. The number of hours is based on how many prescriptions we fill, but if they don't give us enough help we don't get as many prescriptions filled. Quite the Catch 22.

It troubles me that you are filling prescriptions under pressure to fill more than time should allow.

Issues Test Bed wrote:It troubles me that you are filling prescriptions under pressure to fill more than time should allow.

If we're busy and it's one technician and the pharmacist, few scripts actually get filled. You spend most of your time at the register, mainly only filling if the person is physically waiting in the store. After about the 2nd person needing their meds 'now' the wait time starts getting extended, even for those marked as urgent. I've half-joked that we need a wait time sign at the pharmacy, much like those at theme parks.

There are multiple checkpoints in the process, but I'm sure being rushed increases the chance of an error. I

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

New Taco Time, Otra Vez! All fresh, all new! Saturday Breakfast In Place time! Bring out the Drones! The NewTexas Happy Taco Stands, in conjunction with the NewTexas Incendiary Corporation, has approximately 1 trillion of the fastest, lightest drones you have ever seen. This fleet is specially designed to deliver tacos to every man, woman, child, whatever, in Texas, all 2,398,890,000,000 of you.

For your dining pleasure, today's special breakfast will Saturday Chorizo con Papas Tacos [COVID-19 Week XXXVIII Edition]! This is yet another tradicional Mexican morning staple that can be served any time of day! The Head Smoker of Taco Town is still getting a rest as the Big Tex Abuelas and Abuelitas break out the ginormous black cast-iron skillets yet again. Tejanos probably know what this is, for the Texans who do not, it is Mexican sausage and potato, a truly hearty and hardy mix! Chorizo, that delightful, tangy, spicy sausage made from genuine Texan whole hogs, vinegar, and chili powder is lightly-browned in the skillet until it is crumbly and looks like a bright orange oil slick. Most of the grease is poured off and diced potatoes, sautéed until soft, are quickly stirred in and whipped into a hot, fresh flour tortilla so that it does not become an orange-on-orange party. All tortillas are made by our Texas Abuelas on the premises multiple times daily. It is just that simple and delicious. Remember, a whole egg in every taco!®

Today's Special Salsa is once again, not salsa at all but is - Queso - good and chunky queso made with serranos for a little heat. The tacos are hermetically-sealed in a Stay-Warm® pouch that is wrapped in the same ol' aluminum foil we are all so familiar with for our breakfast taco. The Juice Bar will not be possible this week. But, for your beverage needs, a packet of Sanka, Tang and a Lipton Tea bag will be included with every delivery as well as salt and pepper and a napkin. Yes, it is different, but it works and you do not even have to leave your residence. Woo! And, watch out for the drones! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

Stay Safe Texas. Stay Well.

***** Texas Chat Reminder *****

The Texas Weekly Chat Session will be Saturday (TODAY) at High Noon Texas Time (CDT) ***Saturday***. And, if you can't be there right at Noon, that is Ok, Texas Chat usually runs 3, 4, 5 hours with some Chats running as high as 7 or 8 hours.

The Texas Chat Site is here: http://texasregion.net/blab70/login.php

Please register with your nation name. This is a great opportunity for nations old and new to Texas to find out what is going on! We chat, we debate, we talk about the weather, we talk about stuff we like, stuff we hate, random stuff, and more stuff. But, it is never stuffy. Usually, it is about meeting your fellow Texans and talking about the latest and most interesting stuff in NationStates at the moment. But then again, sometimes NationStates does not even come up. It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans, and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 819 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 16¼ years! Check it out! Good stuff!

Time to watch a movie I haven't seen in a while, Top Gun. With talk of the sequel next year, I decided to rewatch the first one.

Vincent's Sunday Surprise Beverage Bonanza

Howdy Dudes and Dudettes of Texas!

Today's Sunday Surprise Beverage is Make - Your - Own - Beverage Day! I've got lots of Large Boxes full of drink making ingredients stacked up right here and I'm going to beam them directly into the home of every Texan in Texas. Everyone will receive a Large Box and it'll materialize on the table closest to you. With all the drink ingredients in your box you can make Coquitos (Puerto Rican Coconut Eggnog), Holiday Punches, Fall-Spiced Old Fashioned Cocktails and Peppermint Eggnogs. There's enough ingredients to make 3 glasses of each drink. You can keep the Instructional Guide CD as my gift to you:

Make Your Own Beverage Drink Making Guide:

Coquito (Puerto Rican Coconut Eggnog)

Peppermint Eggnog
https://www.marthastewart.com/314135/peppermint-eggnog

When blending drinks in your blender always add your ice at the end so it doesn't jam up the blender. Also if you've got alcohol in your house and you desire an alcoholic drink just mix your own booze into the beverages.

And today I've included a large container with a dozen slices of Eggnog Pound Cakes in everyone's boxes too. These cake slices are suffused with the flavors of the season—brandy, nutmeg, and cinnamon, plus cranberry and orange and will make a delicious treat for y’all.

I hope y'all enjoy today's Sunday Surprise Snack and Beverages Texans. Yeehaw! :)

Vincent

Btw my Dad’s okay. He hasn’t been posting his Daily Posts regularly cause he’s very tired and needs more resting and recovery time. Sorry Dudes and Dudettes and thanks for your understanding.
