Limes roll into the market year-round, but summer is prime lime time.
Plentiful supplies mean excellent values at produce counters. Limes are
unlike any fruit because they are both tart and sweet.

Unlike lemons, limes are available without seeds, so you can squeeze
limes into drinks. Limes also can replace lemons in most recipes, but
lemons cannot replace the lime taste when a recipe calls for lime.
Limes also make a salt-free diet simpler to take. Limes bring out flavors
as salt does, but with barely a trace of sodium Limes add few calories
to food as they enhance flavors and provide vitamin C.

When selecting limes, look for fruit that is firm with smooth shiny skin
and deep green colour. Keep limes refrigerated and they will keep fresh
for six to 8 weeks. Watch out for bright light, which ages lime and causes their skins to turn yellow. These limes still will be juicy, but not as attractive,so use soon.

To get the most juice from lime, roll the fruit between the palm of your hand and a kitchen counter, applying gently pressure. Then cut the lime in wedges and squeeze.

A fantastic thought during hot weather is to squeeze fresh lime juice into ice cube trays to freeze and then to be stored in plastic bags.
These ice cubes can be used in iced tea, cold drinks and fruit juices.


Chop left-over potatoes and season with salt. Add 3 tablespoons, (45 ml), milk and a few bits of bacon, ham or sausage, if desired.
Heat bacon drippings or other stout in frying pan. Add potatoes and stir, then press lightly. Allow potatoes to become rich, golden brown on bottom, turn to do other side.


Select potatoes of medium size and bake. Cut lengthwise slice from the flat side of each potato, remove contents from shells, being careful not to break the shells. Mash potatoes, add hot milk, butter, salt and pepper and beat until light and fluffy.

Pile potatoes into shells, sprinkle with paprika or chopped parsley. Place in oven to reheat and bake until the tops of the potatoes are lightly browned. If desired, a well beaten egg, grated cheese, well seasoned chopped meat, bacon, ham or chicken may be added to the potato mixture before it is piled back into the shells.


To make meat balls of even size, spread mixture in an ice cube tray and press the divider down to separate meat into uniform squares.
Take out divider and shape squares lightly into balls.

Add a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice when making blueberry pie.
Gives the flavour a pleasant lift.

A fellow finds himself in front of st. Peter at the golden gate.St. Peter clarifies it is
not simple to get to heaven. There are some criteria before entry.

He questions the guy are you religious? Gave money to the church? Gave
money to the poor? Help his neighbour?

The fellow answers “no”.

Peter says, “look, work with me, I am trying to help you, reckon”.

The fellow says, ”Well, I came out of a store and found this ancient lady surrounded by a dozen bikers. They were shoving her around, and abusing her. I got so mad I threw my grocery bags down, fought through the crowd, and got her purse back. After helping her to her feet, I went to the largest, worst biker and told him how despicable, cowardly, and mean he was. Then I spat in his face.”

“Wow”, said peter, “ That’s very impressive. When did this happen”?

“about five seconds ago” the fellow answers.

If you have teenagers, or in fact any adult, impress on them the risks of driving while intoxicated. Statistics demonstrate many fatal road accidents are caused by drunk drivers.

If you are having a party, provide food with drinks. Offer none-alcoholic substitutes such as fruit, soft drinks.

2 drinks taken within an hour by a person 100 pounds produces a .075 reading. One drink is equal to about 1.5 oz. of whisky or 2 bottles of beer. The rate of elimination for each hour after drinking has stopped is 015. A 200 pound person, after 1 drink produces a reading of .019, so you can see there is a huge difference due to weight.
