March 3, 2015  Dutch Haven, a Lancaster Landmark Since 1946, Dutch Haven has been famous for America's best ShooFly Pie and today it's still produced from the original recipe.  Stop in and enjoy a free sample, or click on the link to ship a pie to a friend! What is ShooFly Pie you ask?? Shoofly pie is a molasses pie considered traditional among the Pennsylvania Dutch.  The pie may get its name because the sweet molasses odor attracts flies that must be "shooed" away.  The shoofly pie's origins may come from the treacle tart with the primary difference being the use of molasses rather than golden syrup.    Shoofly pie also comes in two different versions – wet bottom and dry bottom. The dry bottom version is baked until fully set and results in a more cake-like consistency throughout. The wet bottom version is set like cake at the top where it has mixed in with the crumbs, but the very bottom is a stickier, gooier custard-like consistency.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoofly_pie
Sunset at Big Makena Beach on Maui. Added a gradient with saturation to get a deeper blue in the sky.  I really appreciate the comments!
March 3, 2015  Thank you all for your comments on my potd yesterday of the moon & venus.  I very much appreciate you guys!  As some of you know, we just recently remodeled our house.  We scraped all the popcorn texture off the ceilings (what a mess), put new texture on the ceilings (another mess), we painted every room in the house (14 different colors - all in similar color families), ripped up & threw away the old carpet & put all new hardwood floors in every room except the Kitchen, Living & Dining room as those floors are tile.  Ripping the tile up, was not a job I wanted to tackle.  Living in the house while all this was all going on was tough to say the least, but the outcome is great.    I'm still unpacking and putting everything back in the house.  It's going to take me several more weeks to finish putting the house back together again.  During all of this, I cleaned out all the closets and have boxes and boxes of things and clothes to go to the Salvation Army and on eBay.  My next job is to tackle the garage.  Ugh - I'm thinking a break for a couple of weeks is in the my future.  Anyway, early one morning  just after the back bedroom was painted, I walked into the kitchen and I could see all the way to the back bedroom.  I loved  the shadow play on the walls from the early morning sun peeping through the plantation shutters and the sun's light on the yellow wall color of what is the Grandchildren's bedroom.    I loved what the soft sun was doing with the shutters, and the new wall color, and I also liked that there was a hint of the Carolina Jasmine leafs on the trellis just outside making shadows at the edge of the window.    This photo is by far not my best , but it was a scene that I saw in the early morning hours after the remodel.  It  really caught my eye, and it made me smile.  Thank you for you comments and critiques!  "When walking through the 'valley of shadows,' remember, a shadow is cast by a Light."  ~ Austin O'Malley  Have a "sun-shiney" day today my friends!

Day 061: Graffiti Memories - Mar 2.  Came across this old graffiti in the cement columns of an underground garage.  Not such a great photo opportunity but look close and at the top of the graffiti someone had printed Woodstock #1. The Woodstock Music & Art Fair (aka the Woodstock Festival or Woodstock) was a music festival  billed as “3 Days of Peace & Music."   It was held in New York’s Catskill Mountains at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm from August 15 to 18, 1969. An audience estimated at more than 400,000 braved crowds, rain and mud in the outdoor venue to see and hear 32 acts or performers.  Woodstock is widely regarded as a key turning point in popular music history  and to have spurred the rise of the counterculture generation. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.  No I wasn't there.  I was a young mother with three young children then but I certainly remember the media attention that it received and the spectacular music that we all got to know and love.
Rocked by Snow,,,,  Well this rock might not be rocked by the amount of snow we have but,,,there is more on the way. It was sunny all day but I stayed in and cleaned.  Happy March to all! 03/03/15
3/3/15 - Melting snow creates icy lace when it refreezes at night.  This was hanging off the low branches of a mugho pine.  Look at the in the largest size to see the delicate detail.  It was about four or five inches in length.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the tomatoes in the snow.  I appreciate them.
September 10, 2012    "Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers."  ~ Herbert Hoover     Fishing is one of the most relaxing times that a person can have.  I have enjoyed it all of my life.  I don't get to do it much today, but always try to make the time when I can.  When we were in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming on our vacation, we did go fishing once on the Snake River.     This is a shot of a group of strangers who were enjoying nature, and the fine weather in Cache National Forest near Logan, UT when we stopped to enjoy the beauty of the place.    Notice that I caught this shot just as the man's lure hit the water.    Have a wonderful day today my friends!    Linda
September 7, 2012    Another Bonneville car (yes, I have loads of photos from the races & individual cars). This is a 1953 Studebaker.  Bill was particularly interested in this one & the two other 1953 Studebaker's that were racing there.  He has one of these in the garage, and I think the races may have inspired him to start working on it soon.    Notice the salt caked on the front of the car and where the headlights would be, if it had headlights.  You can see an SP of me in the mirrored surface.    Have a great day!  Linda

June 22...   Last Friday I met classmates from our high school graduation in 1957. We had a wonderful day in the town of Roskilde. We visited the Viking-ship museum,   cruised on the fjord with the old steamship seen in the background and had lunch onboard

June 23...   Viking boat found in a moor and put together bit by bit. It was with these boats the Vikings concurred large part of England, Ireland and Normandy. Part of them settled there as farmers. Many names in England bear witness of the Viking. For example town names ending with -by is of Danish origin, i.e. Grimsby. "By"  is the Danish name for town.
