I am a bit disappointed: this year I kept a list of all the books I read, it will total 135 by the end of the year. I thought I read a lot more books than that. There were a few repeats as I was waiting for other novels to arrive. It averages out at just under 2 1/2 books a week. I was going to publish the list, but it is rather long.
A friend sent this spoof on a Gilbert and Sullivan song which I thought was great. So I am sharing it with you.
A report on Good Morning America today about the germs on a cell phone, they are often dirtier than a toilet seat. Especially those of people who use them a lot and if you eat whilst using your phone you could be in serious trouble. The phones have been found to contain flu viruses, staph infections, and so on. They suggest you wipe them down with rubbing alcohol or rub you hands with sanitizer and then rub them over your phone.
We just asked some neighbours to join us for New Year’s Eve so now we are thinking about what to prepare as a snack – we have asked them for 9 p.m. and hopefully he will make it through 12 although I understand he usually goes to bed early. I came across this recipe yesterday, from Kraft Kitchens, and thought it might be a good one – if they like seafood, will have to check.

Kraft Kitchens Tips
Makeover - How We Did It
We've taken a favorite appetizer and made it over by preparing it with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT Light Mayo Reduced Fat Mayonnaise instead of regular cream cheese and mayonnaise. And since these tasty appetizers are baked, they require less hands-on time so you can spend more time with your guests. This baked version also saves 80 calories and 6 g of fat per serving compared to traditional fried Crab Rangoon.
Look for won ton wrappers in the refrigerated produce section of your grocery store.
For a Crispier Rangoon
Bake won ton wrappers in muffin cups at 350°F for 5 to 7 min. or until lightly browned. Fill with crabmeat mixture and bake 6 to 8 min. or until filling is heated through.
Have a great day
