Thursday Tidbits

Hello everybody, you know how much I like to share things here and there. So here we go on Thursday Tidbits just for you.

If you are planning a camping trip or just a picnic in the park, reuse an empty Pringles canister to store treats. The canisters come in handy to keep snacks fresh and avoid ants getting inside with the tightly-sealed cap. They are also useful on car trips for storing snacks and other tasty treats.

Do you have an avid reader in the family or maybe it's you? During the summer vacation, choose a book to read and then meet to discuss it. There are a lot of summer reads that are page turners and gives everyone a break from watching too much TV. Make sure the reads shared are age appropriate.

Here's a quote from director Alfred Hitchcock who is my favorite: "A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it." ;-)

One of Atlanta's top TV anchors, Monica Pearson is retiring at the end of this month from Channel 2 news. I remember being so impressed with seeing an African-American woman on the local news channel when we moved to Atlanta. A celebration in Monica Pearson's honor was held last night and the Atlanta Journal Constitution has a great gallery of photos you can view here. We sure will miss her smiling face each day!


  1. That is a great quote I am definitely going to that picnic tip.
