My good friend and blog follower Bill is on the beat. Again. This time in OIB NC. (That’s Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina.)
This morning he sent me a photo. (He won the caption contest at the local paper recently- got in the newspaper Without dying or getting arrested post.
Since I was on jury duty today all day, it felt good to know I had a guest blogpost at the ready! Thanks Bill. See his photograph below.
And the coincidence is I’d just watched the new version of The Little Prince and was reminded of my favorite quotation.
“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” “What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
Guest blogger Kristin used this old recipe from my mother’s recipe box.
I posted about my old Throwback Recipe Blog which I abandoned but 62 El Salvadorians found recently. No one else seems to be able to access it. I was able to screenshot the post of the Rhubarb Cake Recipe. I don’t even know who Beth Boettner is/was.
Rhubarb. You either love it or not.
Would vanilla ice cream or a bit of cream complement the taste? Hmmmmmm
Here’s the old blog address. Throwback Recipes Blog Let me know if you can get to it

My son Mark sent me this panorama of McCloud Mountain in LaFollette, Tennessee.
The Cumberland Mountains are a section of the Appalachian Mountains.

I found another blogger’s post with a YouTube video of McCloud Mountain to give you another view. (Click for McCloud Mountain post and video)

Marlene sent me these Florida birds this morning
“Seen while snow birding at the Savannas Campground in Ft. Pierce which is surrounded by marsh lands. There are so many beautiful birds to observe from egrets to sand hill cranes but my favorite is the great blue heron. It is the largest heron in North America. They were always alone standing near the marshes.”
My sister Mary caught this photo for me on the Pennsylvania Turnpike as we drove from NYC to Columbus.
The guy was driving so fast we could not get any closer on the winding road through the Laurel Mountains.
It’s not often you see a big bell on a flatbed trailer along the highway.
