Ring of Fire

 

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak.

Saturday 9: Ring of Fire
(because country music was recommended by Colletta’s Kitchen’s Sink)


If you’re not familiar with today’s song, you can hear it here.

1) Recorded by Johnny Cash, “Ring of Fire” was written by his wife, June Carter. Johnny’s daughter Roseanne says it’s about “the transformative power of their love.” What’s your favorite love song? Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd – it was our first dance at our wedding!

2) Though more than 50 years old, this song is still popular today. Country Music Television named it one of the best and most requested of all time. Are you a country music fan? not really

3) This recording features mariachi horns, inspired by Mexican folk music. Have you ever been to Mexico? no

4) Cash’s birth certificate said, “J. R. Cash,” and “J.R.” is what his parents always called him. When he enlisted in the Air Force, Uncle Sam refused to let him simply go by initials, so he chose the name “John.” If you could choose a different name for yourself, what would it be? I like my name, so I wouldn’t change it.

5) Cash and his first wife, Vivian, had their first date at a roller skating rink. Tell us about one of your first dates. Oh geez…… I think we went to a movie, but I have no clue what we saw…it was so long ago!

6) Cash died in September, 2003, four months after he lost his second wife, and love of his life, June. The cause of death given was complications from diabetes, but his children believe he died of a broken heart. Do you think that’s possible? I do

7) Cash was known as “The Man in Black.” What color do you wear most often? purple

8) There’s a Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville. What’s the last museum you visited? I think it was the Gerald Ford one, but only because it had some Art Prize entries

9) A stretch of Tennessee Highway 31E is known as “Johnny Cash Parkway.” What street in your town is named for a famous person? M6 is also know as the Paul B. Henry Freeway – *edited to add the reason…* Paul B. Henry was our Congressman in MI back in the 80′s who as he was being re-elected to his 5th term was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He battled his cancer for 9 months and died at the age of 51.

Today is my hubby’s 50th birthday. I am married to an old man! LOL I picked up some things to put together a gag basket, some balloons and a door banner. Of course the dog went beserk when she saw the balloons. Finally got her distracted enough so she would leave them alone.

Once John got home from work the craziness began again! Lici went nuts over the balloons. We had to put the balloons in the front entry way and close the door. She was jumping so high, I thought for sure she was going to get the balloons. She was reaching John’s chest at times. Crazy!

The items in the basket are: box of bandaids, Preparation H, Gax X, Icy Hot patch, an adult diaper in a (in case of an emergency, break) box, “50 sucks” suckers, Antidote for Aging (candy form), Over the Hill soap, Gray B Gone hair stuff (just an empty bottle for a gag), some chatter teeth with feet. I am sure he wishes he would have gotten some nice wheels, but that just wasn’t happening this year. Maybe for his 60th!

For dessert I made an apple danish braid. There is plenty leftover, that we can have for breakfast.

1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 TBS. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 TBS. maple-flavored syrup

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a bowl, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar until well blended. Add egg mixing until smooth.

Chop pecans.

Unroll 1 pkg. of crescent dough; do not separate. arrange longest sides of dough across width of 12″ x 15″ rectangle baking stone. Repeat with remaining pkg. of dough. Roll dough to seal perforations.

On longest sides of baking stone, cut dough into strips 1-1/2 inches apart, 3 inches deep using pizza cutter (there will be 6 inches in the center for the filling). spread half of cream cheese mixture evenly over middle of dough. Peel, core and slice apples using A/P/C/S. Cut slices crosswise in half; evenly arrange apple slices over cream cheese mixture.

Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Scoop remaining cream cheese mixture over apples; sprinkle with pecans. to braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid. Tuck ends under to seal at end of braid. Bake 25-28 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven; brush with syrup using pastry brush. Cut & serve.

One Thing Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim’s meme. (It’s our way of saying “Thanks!”) Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Let’s go!!!
