Good morning, everybody… There’s pumpkin bread at “Adam@Home” today.
It’s “National Guacamole Day” today. I don’t even remember what an avocado tastes like. I know that as a kid, I tried it once. That’s it, once. But. as I was a kid, maybe I’ll buy one and try it for supper tonight.From: ”The Fannie Farmer Cookbook” (Twelfth Edition)

On this day in 1620 the “Mayflower” set sail from Plymouth, England with either 101 0r 102 passengers (I’m assuming they were all pilgrims) aboard.The “Mayflower” was built about 1609. She was about 90 feet long, and weighed in around 180 tons. The crossing took 65 days. She left to return home on April 5, 1621.There is no credible evidence that she went on to become a slave ship(as some believe), but much evidence to say she was scrapped after the death of her captain and 1/4 owner, Christopher Jones, in 1622. There are some who believe that her scrapped timbers and keel are part of a barn in the village of Jordans, near to London. Here is a link to the “Mayflower II” website. The “Mayflower II” was built in 1957 and was given to America as a symbol of friendship. Its crossing took only 54 days.Link
