Happy Birthday, America… 238 years and counting.  

Here’s a little July 4 trivia to chew on ~

Hot dogs

Americans are expected to eat 150 million hot dogs over the July 4th holiday.

Joey Chestnut

Love that Joey Chestnut.  He won his eighth straight hot dog-eating contest today by polishing off 61 hot dogs in 10 minutes.  Then he got down on bended knee to propose to his fellow competitive eater/longtime girlfriend. She said yes. ♥ tropical-storm-hurricane-arthur-1280x720This is the third time that an Atlantic cyclone has been named Arthur ~ Tropical Storm Arthur in 1996, Tropical Storm Arthur in 2002, and the 2014 Arthur. Interestingly, all three storms moved along the North Carolina coast.  Torrents of rain, cold fronts, rip tides.  Oh, Arthur. fireworks1 On the East Coast, we’re experiencing a brief weather delay. So, before the fireworks and fun begin, whip up some of these for your fellow Americans. Here’s the how-to for these cheeky chews ~   mld104375_0709_chips_exp3_hd   Start with the template. Red cone clip art.  Blue cone clip art.  Both are revolutionary. IMG_2761 Print the clip-art image (red or blue) and trim.

Score along the dotted line. IMG_2756   Fold back to create a tab. IMG_2757  Rub the tab with a glue stick.  Wrap to form a cone.

IMG_2759I’m going to fill mine with with blue-potato chips, white popcorn, red licorice sticks.  

And share them with my friends. It’s my patriotic duty. IMG_2762  Toni 7/4/14
