Went to Florida Seafood With 18 Old Tigers and Tiger” Tales”

Hello CREW… Red rose                                       01-24-13

Ugh!    Ole Indian rec'd bad  Smoke Signals!   Went to
            the Mosquito Beaters meeting on Sunday and
            found out it had nothing to do with Folding,
            Stuffing or Stamping envelopes!   Seems the
            email I rec'd telling me about the meeting was
            NOT asking for help! The Stuffing will be held
            at a later date. T.B.D.    Sorry bout that Chief!  
Florida Seafood    was….  amazing!   18 CHS Alumni
 gathered for another enjoyable CREW event!     
Fla Seafood

Attendees:     L to R   Donna Price, Wilt Wagner,
     Tom Tinker, Ann Driskill, Clark True, Lois Atkinson,
    George Reinhart (took picture) Barbara Thomas, David
   Alexander, Bill Weinberg, Sandy Baker, Harvey Baker,
  Bill Raines, Gerry Heller, a token Indian, Gloria Tinker,
  Jack Young, Linda Young.     Server: Kristin was great!    
We were surprised!   Before we were seated we looked
                into the fish tank in the front of the restaurant.
                           There was a 2-3 foot Moray eel!
                It was black with thin white stripes (like a zebra)
                   None of us had ever seen anything like it!
                    Hummm  He/she was not on the menu?
                            And YES, they are eatable! 
A myth?     Vinegar Can Clean Anything?


          Contrary to popular belief, vinegar does not clean everything.


    Example: Vinegar will damage hardwood floors if used as a cleaner.


     Adding vinegar in a laundry machine, will harm the washer as well.


                Vinegar may adversely impact your potassium levels.


        BUT!   Mixed with a light flavored oil and added to my salad… 


                                     It  tastes  great!  
Next event:    Jan 30th  Longhorn's Steak House on M.I.  
We all admire the wisdom of people who come to us for advice!
