More random thoughts

You know how there are days when you've really screwed up and by the time you get home from work, your brain can conjure up only brief, random thoughts? Nothing really connects to the next thought except the realization that your brain is short circuited for the evening. Or maybe you don't have those kind of days. I do. This is one of them.


Black and white salad

Black and White salad

For that potluck dinner - or just for home:

Wash and cut into bite-sized pieces a head of cauliflower.

Open a jar of medium or large black olives, drain.

Mix both together with 1/3 cup of Hellman's Mayonnaise.

DO NOT use another Mayo - it won't be as good!

That is it - gets better as the hours pass - if any is left over.

Bluffton card decks going...almost gone!

Bluffton card decks are becoming as scarce as (you may fill in the blank). The holiday fund-raiser by the Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce saw nearly 300 card decks sold in one month.

A very limited supply of decks remains in some Bluffton stores. Those cards will not be reprinted, so persons interested in a pack or two should buy them now.

Each deck offered 52 cards and each card is sponsored by a Bluffton business. The decks sell for $5 each. PromoHits! created the decks and gave them to the chamber as a fund raiser.
