History of Memorial Day
Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades.

Memorial Day is May 25, 2014. Here are some tips for grilling and recipes for Memorial Day.

Safety Tips for Grilling

Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.

The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.

Keep children and pets away from the grill area.

Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.

Never leave your grill unattended.

Remember to:
Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose. A propane leak will release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off the gas tank and grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not move the grill.

Never use an outdoor grill indoors. Use the grill at least 10 feet away from your house or any building. Do not use the grill in a garage, breezeway, carport, porch, or under a surface that can catch fire.

Never burn charcoal inside of homes, vehicles, tents, or campers. Charcoal should never be used indoors, even if ventilation is provided.

This week I don't have to remember what day of the week I can water the grass.  Wonderful rain has come to Lubbock.  We have been in a drought for the past 4 years.  We can only water our lawns once a week.  Rain came in Thursday night and it is suppose to continue through Monday.  This is such good news.  It has been months since we have seen any rain at all.  Everything has been so dry and the chance of grass fires has been possible.

Little One and Ditto have been sitting in the windows watching the rain.  I don't think Little One (my cat) understood what was happening.  Ditto (my older cat) could sit for hours and watch the rain fall.

This is for Betty in ME, regarding rather sour grapes.

This sounds like a project! Less than sweet fruit isn't always improved with sweeteners. My thought is to dry them in a slow oven and use in place of some other less than sweet, dried fruit, such as cranberries. Your idea of using in place of rhubarb would work, except you would have to take into consideration that grapes have a lot more moisture in them than rhubarb, so adjust accordingly.
Good luck! Anne in Mississauga

(Note! Frankfurters were popular in the late 17th century and were invented by a butcher in Germany. In 1900, they were named “hot dogs” when vendors at the NY Polo Grounds hawked “red hot dachshunds”. A sports cartoonist claimed he couldn’t spell “dachshund” and renamed them “hot dogs”.)
