Where did you grow up?

In the kitchen: Curried eggs on rice

This recipe came from an Hellman's Mayonnaise ad in the '60s. It is a delicious company recipe - very attractive too.

Curried Eggs on Rice

1 cup Hellman's Real Mayonnaise (substitutes make this a less-tasty but lighter dish - don't use Miracle Whip which is a salad dressing, not a mayonnaise)

1 cup dairy sour cream (or plain yogurt - again - lighter taste)

3 oz can of sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup milk


Letter: Some thoughts on Ohio license plates

Dear Icon:

From the banks of the Riley on the west edge of Pandora,

Good to see you this AM in passing at the Post Office. The fellow who owns the 600 ZB plates is Leland Badertscher. He isn't related to Maynard. He has had the plates for "15-20 years." The 600 isn't special.

I mentioned to him that that was likely the number which had rotated up and was available that day. The plate numbers for ZB and YZ were available for purchase in numerical order.
