Cheese tips: Whenever serving cheese at a party, serve one mild, one sharp, and one creamy. Serve with wheat crackers.

Fishing tip: Whenever you fish for catfish use miniature marshmallows on your hook. They love the gooey treat.

Cooking tip: Before making a recipe put all of the ingredients on a tray and you will not have to search for them, you will have them at your finger tips.

History Lesson: There are only two months that start on the same day and they are February. and March, except on Leap Year.

Pet Peeve: People trying to tell other people what to eat whenever they know nothing at all about food. A person must know and study nutrition to know about food. There are certain foods that a person should not eat together, such as potatoes with bread on pasta.

Life of makeup: Whenever you buy makeup, make a label and put the date on it, and tape to the makeup. By doing this you will know whenever to throw it out. Dates for use are 6 months foundation, 3 to 6 months cream blush and eye shadow, 3 months mascara, 18 months for gloss and lipstick and powder two years. These are guidelines that I have used for years, and you will know whenever the product is good to use.

Opera: The Phantom of the Opera is the longest playing opera on Broadway. Ity has been on at Majestic Theatre for 25 years.

I experienced the thrill of seeing this opera on one of my visits to New York. I still have the Play bill from this opera.
