Stay Safe & Warm..!

Can u say, 'It's Cold..!' ? 
Did u know that chocolate 
can discolor in the cold such as 
Here are some tips for Chocolate lovers; 

1. The shelf life of most milk chocolate is one year; for most dark chocolate, it's two years. 
2. Chocolate keeps best between 65 and 70°F, away from direct sunlight, and protected from moisture. 
3. When refrigerating or freezing chocolate, make sure it is sealed in an airtight container—refrigerators are very humid. 
4. Always thaw frozen chocolate in the refrigerator; if it goes straight from the freezer to room temperature, condensation will form and alter the appearance and texture. 
5. Always allow chilled chocolate to come to room temperature before enjoying it; cold chocolate doesn't melt or disperse flavor as nicely.
Have a Safe and Warm Holidays!

Happy Candy Month..!


National Candy Day is observed annually on November 4th. Candies come in numerous colors, shapes, sizes and varieties and have a long history in popular culture.

People use the term candy as a broad category that includes candy bars, chocolates, licorice, sour candies, salty candies, tart candies, hard candies, taffies, gumdrops, marshmallows and much more.

Way back in time, before sugar was readily available, candy was made from honey.  
The honey was used to coat fruits and flowers to preserve them or to create forms of candy.  
There is still candy that is served in this way today, but it is typically seen as a garnish.

Originally a form of medicine, candy calmed the digestive system or cooled a sore throat.  
At this time, combined with spices and sugar, candy only appeared in the purses and the dishes of the wealthy.

It was in the 18th century that the first candy is believed to have come to America from Britain and France.  
At this time, the simplest form of candy was Rock Candy made from crystallized sugar. 
However, even the basic form of sugar was considered a luxury and was only attainable by the wealthy.

Since 1979, the world has produced more sugar than can be sold, making it very attainable and cheap.

When the technological advances and the availability of sugar opened up the market in the 1830s, the candy business underwent a drastic change. 
Candy was not only for the enjoyment of the well to do but the pleasure of everyone. 
Penny candies became popular, targeting children.

1847 – Invention of the candy press making it possible to produce multiple shapes and sizes of candy at one time.
1851 – Confectioners began using a revolving steam pan to assist in boiling sugar.
The two top selling candies in America have been:

M & M’S 
— M&M’s are milk chocolate drops with a colorful candy coating on the outside.
 The candies were first manufactured in 1941 and were given to American soldiers serving in the Second World War. M&M’s are produced by Mars Inc.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups 
— Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are round chocolate disks that are filled with a sweet, creamy peanut butter filling. 
The cups were first manufactured in 1928 by the Hershey’s company.

Monday's Child

Skipped a Monday!
Mondays are NOT Mondays.
They are Busydays.
Actually, let's see;

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
Sunday's child is bonnie and brave.

Did I really just take out valuable and precious time
to type a poem!
Was thinking that if Monday is really Busyday,
what would Tuesdays be?
Do NOT have time to improvise...

Back to Work, Me!
Mondays child...
When it rains, it pours.
So busy, I forgot to be busy!
Then I typed a poem..?!?
See u next Monday...

Happy Labor Day!
Monday, September 5, 2016.
Labor Day Weekend=3-Day Weekend. The Best..!
But not for me...
Mondays are work days, and I get to it...

So, did u know that the Government has its own Department of Labor?
It certainly does..!
Here is the Dept. of Labor History and Definition of Labor Day.

United States Department of Labor=Link 

Labor Day: What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. 
It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. 

Labor Day Legislation

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

Founder of Labor Day

The father of labor day
More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.
Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those "who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold."
But Peter McGuire's place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.
