Now On Twitter

I was on Twitter several years ago when I had Country Meadow…
I ended up deleting it as I just didn’t have time for yet another social media site.

I’m back in the game again with a personal Twitter Account.

Join me won’t you?!



Awesome Pictures

One of the things I wish I had time to learn…and practice is photography.
At this time that is something I need to leave to the professionals.

Last week we met up with fellow hot-rodders at a local Dairy Queen and as luck would have it a local photographer was there.
Here is her website: Ashley Christina Photography
And here is her Facebook page (you need to be logged into Facebook to get access):

Here are four pictures of the ’56 that she took.

I added cubed cheddar cheese and cut up hard boiled eggs
Bell peppers and olives would also be good in this

2 large ripe tomatoes, diced
10 leaves of crispy romaine lettuce, washed / dried / and cut chopped into bite sized pieces

Salt and pepper, to taste


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes.
Drain pasta and rinse under cold water until cool.
Place cooled pasta in a large serving bowl; set aside.
In a small bowl combine zesty Italian dressing and ranch, mix well. Add dressing to pasta and toss well to coat pasta.
Add bacon, lettuce, tomato, and onion to the pasta bowl, mix well to combine, and season with salt and pepper as desired.
Serve at once, or chill until needed.
