Ridin' the Rails: IRON HORSE INN:
South CleElum, WA
Nestled in the Cascade Mountain foothills of Central Washington, The Iron Horse Inn was originally constructed in 1909 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific Railroad. It served until 1974 as temporary housing for men who had the job of getting trains over some of the most hazardous tracks in the country.

Now owned and operated by Doug and Mary Pittis, this Inn features an extensive collection of historic photographs, artifacts, and railroad memorabilia. The lovingly renovated Inn has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Each morning, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and a full country breakfast greets you as you enter our large and friendly dining room. Doug who was trained in culinary cuisine at the Culinary Institute of America, carefully prepares your morning meal.

While you dine, examine the model trains and collection of railroad lanterns as you enjoy a leisurely meal to begin your day.

Happy Railroadin' Partners.....have fun and enjoy!!! No better way to enjoy wildlife....nature....and just down right relaxin'!

New White House Furniture:
Word has it, that if Albert Gore, throws enough fits and gets his way, they'll be installing a new CRIB & PLAYPEN in the oval office. There will also be a lollypop dispenser near the door.

Another update: If you noticed, there are no more WANTED posters hanging in the Post Office. Seems they don't like the idea of pictures of criminals hanging in the lobby. Ironic, Isn't it? They don't want pictures of criminals in the lobby of the Post Office, but we got one sitting behind the desk at the OVAL OFFICE!! Actually I thought a picture of Bill would look good on a Post Office wall. Oh well.......

Get out of bed carefully:
Getting out of bed won't really become a problem until your belly starts to bulge in your second or third trimester. Once you've gained a great deal of weight, you'll need to find a safe, comfortable way to get out of bed. Try this: Roll over onto your left side (if you aren't already in that position) and "tip" yourself out of bed, feet first. When your legs touch the floor, use your arms to push yourself up into a sitting position on the bed. From there, it's easier to get out of bed. Don't hesitate to ask your partner for help if you need it. He can give you a hand getting into bed, too, as well as help you find a comfortable sleeping position.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

How do I swaddle my baby?
Swaddling is the art of snugly wrapping your baby in a blanket for warmth and security. It can also keep him from being disturbed by his own startle reflex, and it may even help him stay warm and toasty for the first few days of life until his internal thermostat kicks in. Most important, it's a method that can help a baby get calmer. Lay a blanket on a flat surface and fold down the top-right corner about 6 inches. Place the baby on his back with his head on the fold. Pull the corner near the baby's left hand across the body, and tuck the leading edge under the child's back on the right side under the arm. Pull the bottom corner up under the baby's chin. Bring the loose corner over the baby's right arm and tuck it under his back on the left side. Some babies prefer to have their arms free, so you may want to swaddle your child under the arms so he has access to his hands and fingers.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!

  • Daddy Drinks Because You Cry.....


Cooking Magazine of the Month Club

Pumpkin pie doesn't have to be a winter-only dessert, if you make it with cool, creamy ingredients--like butter pecan ice cream. Note that aromatic bitters are a concentrated flavoring made from herbs and spices and used to flavor cocktails and foods. You can buy small bottles at a liquor store. (You can also leave out this ingredient if you prefer.) Serves eight.
  • 1 cup mashed cooked pumpkin (canned is fine)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon aromatic bitters
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (4-1/2 ounces) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 pint butter pecan ice cream, slightly soft
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans


  • 1-1/2 cups gingersnap crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To make crust, mix gingersnap crumbs and melted butter. Press firmly and evenly against bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake 10 minutes; cool.
Mix pumpkin, brown sugar, bitters, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon ice cream into crust; spread to edge of crust. Swirl pumpkin mixture over ice cream. Freeze at least three hours.
Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving. Sprinkle pecans in circle on top of pie.

So until next time, REMEMBER:  that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have....
