    Good morning, everybody…

    It’s “National Nut Day,” today. (Rather appropriate for this site, I thought.)


    From: The New Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book
    By: Ruth Hutchinson
    Illustrated by: Tim Palmer
    Published by: HARPER & BROTHERS NEW YORK 1958
    Earlier edition published as: The Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book (1948)
    Library of Congress catalog card number 58-8873

    Nut Kisses (Credited to: Mrs. Elda Keck)

    6 egg whites
    Pinch of salt
    2 tablespoons flour
    2 cups confectioners’ sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla (real not artificial)
    2 cups chopped nutmeats

    Beat egg whites stiff with salt.
    Add sifted sugar and flour.
    Stir together lightly, then add vanilla and nutmeats.
    Drop on buttered cookie sheet and bake in 300° oven for about 1/2 hour until golden brown.



    @ Dry

    I hope it is only walnuts and not other kinds too. The recipe calls for “nutmeats” not any particular kind.


    On this day in 1962, the “Cuban Missile Crisis” officially began. It started when the Soviet Union, under Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev sent nuclear missiles to Soviet bases in Cuba which could easily reach targets on the United States Eastern Seaboard and far inland. The Russians’ missile ranges at the time were limited to Europe and Alaska.

    The Soviet Union had two main reasons for wanting the missiles in Cuba. First, it was responding to the deployment in Turkey of U.S. nuclear missiles, aimed at targets within itself, and second, Khruschev was testing the severity of the response. East Germany wanted West Berlin as part of its territory, and if the U.S. did little (No one in Russia doubted there would be a response, but Khruschev thought it would be as weak as the U.S. response to the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961.), the Soviet Union would force the Allies out of Berlin using the missiles based in Cuba as a threat.

    The crisis began when President Kennedy signed an order for a “quarantine” (so called for legal and diplomatic reasons) around Cuba on October 22, 1962, and the world held its breath until November 3, 1962 when an agreement was reached with the Soviet Union to withdraw the missiles. The United States secretly agreed to remove the missiles from Turkey and others from Italy.

    I did not know this until I began my research; there was one United States Military death due to enemy action. Air Force Major Rudolf Anderson, a U-2 pilot, was shot down over Cuba by a surface-to-air missile. His body was returned to the United States after the crisis and was buried in South Carolina with full military honors. He was also the first recipient (posthumously) of the ‘Air Force Cross” the second highest award for bravery the Air Force can bestow.

    There is a lot more to this, of course, but one thing that did come out of it was the now famous “Hotline” between Washington and Moscow.

    You sound like me Baldo. Sometimes my breakfast kind of overlaps lunch. :-D

    @Alexikakos

    Yes, I am allergic to all tree nuts. Almonds are not a tree nut, I can eat them. They are related to peaches. And obviously, peanuts are a legume and I can eat them.

    I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was in grade school, the nuns lined us all up and we went out the front doors and went home. The walkers left first, and then the bus riders got on their busses. We were scared to death! I think we were out of school for a few days if memory serves me correctly.

    I was at Bethesda Naval Hospital the following year when they brought Kennedy’s body back. My aunt worked there at the time, and we got close enough to see pretty clearly.

    Good morning all!

    Looks like one last warm day here before another cold spell. Too bad I spend most of my Tuesdays indoors.

    If I have a late breakfast, then I usually have a late lunch too. Gotta make sure I have all four meals in the day haha.

    DRY, seeing your president like that must have been awful. What sad memories for a child.

    Hi SERENA. JFRI is out skunking a skunk, and the rest of us showed up at our usual unpredictable times (me at any rate).

    Shika, I didn’t see him, I saw the casket. I saw Jackie in her pink suit and pink hat, I was really too young to understand until a few days later, and then years later, what an event I HAD seen. I remember Mom, Daddy and I were driving down to Bethesda, Maryland to spend the week with my Dad’s aunt, mother, my only cousin on that side, an only child like me, and my uncle by marriage. Daddy was driving and there was an Army car in front of us going really slow, so Daddy passed him on the highway, then just moments later, the Army car sped past us at top speed. I remember that Daddy was, well in “Road Rage” mode, LOL! Because he thought they were being “smartasses”. Then when we got to my Grandma’s we knew WHY they did that. After all these years, I still remember all that just like it was yesterday. I may forget things now and then, but I never have forgotten that time. Or the missile crisis the year before.

    And remember, television in those days was NOTHING like it is now. You had 3 networks. period! So it was all the actual news.

    Oh my, Dry! What a memory! History in the making. Still, a sad time for your nation. And when we Canadians watched it, we were just as horrified. Of course, I only remember it in black and white.
