Yesterday was a doozy! This recent Facebook post explains pretty much everything that happened yesterday for the most part. I still can't tell you what happened to my day.
Very rarely do I run into police road blocks for license checks, but it happened not once, or twice, but three dang times! Yes, I waited until the last minute to reach the post office before closing, but I could have made it without all those distractions I tell you. To make matters even worse, every one of those State Troopers probably could have been in a romance novel. *heh* I asked each one if I could take a picture for my Blog and received pretty definitive "No's". (lol) Meanwhile, back to the drawing board with all that post office stuff next week.
We're still celebrating National Ice Cream Month with all kinds of fun recipes designed to make your mouth water.
CHOCOLATE AMARETTO FLOAT
4 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
1/4 Cup Milk
1/2 Tsp Almond Extract
6 Tbs Chocolate Syrup (or more if you like)
Whipped Cream, Additional Chocolate Syrup, Sprinkles or Nuts, Strawberries
In a blender, combine 2 cups ice cream, milk, and almond extract, blending until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and reserve.
In a blender, combine the remaining 2 cups of ice cream with 6 Tbs Chocolate Syrup, blending until smooth. Divide among 4 10 oz. glasses. Top with the rest of the reserved ice cream mixture. Feel free to add on your whipped cream, more syrup, sprinkles and strawberries, then serve immediately.
This is a great way to have everyone join in the fun by helping to make these tasty treats. If you're alone, why not sit back today with that book you've been meaning to read, or relaxing with a funny movie. Today is your day!
JUST ONE MORE THING
I'm not really a fan of MMA, however, I do run across that sport in romance novels, and the stories are enjoyable. One would have to admit that they are fit, disciplined and committed. What might surprise you, however, is the significant amount of domestic violence displayed by many of these athletes. Guess what? They're still making money with little repercussions from these criminal acts. Bryant Gumbel interviewed Christy Mack on Real Sports who was beaten nearly to death by her boyfriend, War Machine. In case you're wondering, his real name is Jon Kappenhaver. Yep, she's a porn star. Yes, if they were still together (there are conflicting reports about that), she had no business cheating. He started abusing her 4 months into their relationship, and when he caught her with another man in her home, he beat her, breaking 10 of her ribs, nose and teeth, fracturing a rib, rupturing her liver and bruising her body. You and I look at these pictures and see it as wrong. however, many MMA fighters feel she deserved it and had no problem sharing their opinions.

After she was able to gather her courage by posting pics of her injuries, police issued a warrant for his arrest, and he was on the run, posting to Twitter until being caught a week later. He may end up in prison for the rest of his life for attempted murder.
