It has been a confusing couple of days.   I’ve been trying to switch the blog to a hosted site where I have a bit more flexibility.  I didn’t realize you have to know more code than the pundits advertise.   Please be patient with me and don’t get too confused.  I’ll have to hire a professional to straighten things out. 

Sure signs of fall…


Doesn’t that get you so excited! Halloween! Trick or Treat!  Send something good to eat!   This photo was taken on Old Herkimer Road on my way to work.  I was avoiding road construction in Frankfort  last week and found this beautiful scene.


 When you see that many pumpkins, well!  You just HAVE to make PUMPKIN MUFFINS! 

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup 100% pureed pumpkin – canned
  • ½ cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 375F.  Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.


  In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin, oil, egg and vanilla and beat well.  


Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour and JUST STIR UNTIL COMBINED.  Don’t over mix. 

Add enough to fill the muffin cups that you have lined the muffin tins with.  You will need 18 muffin cups. 


Bake for 20 minutes.  You WILL enjoy these wonderful, moist, flavorful treats.  Have one for breakfast!












 Guess what we received Friday?   Harry & David Nectarines and Peaches ! 


Can’t wait to bite into those babies!










As for the weekend, we went to the Quarter Century Club clam bake put on by Ted’s company.  It was Ted’s first year as a QC.

As for today, we went 4.5 miles around the Proctor parks.  I also ran downstairs to get in 20 minutes of weight lifting so tomorrow can be simply an aerobic day.  Yesterday, Shane and I ran 6.5 around the parks.  Not a bad, busy weekend, except for ….DUN…DA..DUN..DUNT…the website crapola!  We’ll get it right.  Stick with me guys and have a great day!
