Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Fat Tuesday and it is Paczki day in Michgian

It is Fat Tuesday, and here in SE Michigan we celebrate with Paczki  (Punch-key) a Polish Tradition.  Germans call them Berliners and in Austria they are called Krapfen.  What is a Paczki - jelly filled dough balls  covered with several types of sugar or glaze.  Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday the start of Lent and fasting for the next 40 days.  How do you enjoy Fat Tuesday?  Please let me know!  Yes I still get my milk in glass bottles.  I live very close to Calder's Dairy Farm, and they put their milk in old fashion glass bottles.  We need to support our local cows.
