Monday's Muddle

A muddle is a miscellany, an unorganized mixture of various dissimilar items or elements.

The Industrial Age powered by dogs?

How's this for a dog!
Irish Wolfhound tallest dog breed

Came across this just browsing the other day. Great fun if you like Celtic music!  Meet Albannach!

 Free download of their album 'Independence'

*Patty, they are going to be performing in King Prussia @ the Mid Winter Scottish/Irish Music Festival Feb 15-17! I'm going to try to go, maybe we could meet up!

Gravy anyone? 

Or maybe you'd like some...

Cherry Nut Bread
½ cup shortening or butter
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 small bottle of maraschino cherries, chopped
½ cup of cherry juice
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup walnuts, chopped

Mix shortening (butter), eggs and sugar.  Add cherry juice and mix.  Add flour and dry ingredients and mix.  Add vanilla.  Mix all well.  Add chopped cherries and walnuts, mix lightly.  Bake in bread or loaf pan at 350° for 45-50 minutes.  Check with toothpick to see if done.
This can be made in a bread loaf pan or in 4 mini-loaf pans.
Option: buy a large jar of cherries, then use between ½ and 1 cup of chopped cherries instead of the “small bottle.”

An old unsolved murder...
Raymond Chandler said ‘The Wallace case is the nonpareil of all murder mysteries ... I call it the impossible murder because Wallace couldn’t have done it, and neither could anyone else. ... The Wallace case is unbeatable; it will always be unbeatable.’

and that's all folks!

*Sorry I'm a little late getting this up today, my mom went in the hospital this weekend with a very nasty respiratory bug so I was very busy. Just got the call from her Doc though and she is improving this morning! Just have to get her eating and strengthen her up.
