I WAS THINKING…
how versatile the pumpkin is during its seasonal period.
Just walk into my favorite store, Trader Joe, and you will discover different delicious pumpkin treats you never thought of before. Of course, the Jack-O-Lantern takes the reward for the most use of the pumpkin, but I’d vote for the pumpkin pie. And have you tried pumpkin butter? Of course, it’s seasonal, but that doesn’t stop me from stocking my pantry for later.
Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image.
Make friends before you need them.
It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.
LET’S TALK ABOUT WINE
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Can’t budge the cork? Take a hot, wet towel, wrap it around the neck of the bottle. The heat will make the glass expand and your corkscrew should finish the job.
Wrap wax paper around the cork before putting the cork back on and the next time it should come out with less effort.
Don’t throw out the left over wine. Freeze it in an ice cube tray. You will have it later for casseroles and saucers that call for wine.
Have you ever wondered why wine racks are built so the bottles can be laid on their sides?
If not stored on their sides, the cork will dry up and won’t fit properly when you try to re-cork the bottle.

THIS I’VE LEARNED
Mark Twain once said, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” This is a good reminder that we tend to worry about things that are likely not to happen. It’s best to focus on the present moment instead of worrying about the future. Think about it.
