Inventory – Poem by Dorothy Parker

Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.

Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.

Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.

Dorothy Parker

The emperor penguin is the largest penguin in the world and the only one that breeds in the harsh winter of Antarctica. Diving up to 1,750 feet below the sea ice and for as long as 20 minutes, emperor penguins can travel as far as 600 miles in search of food.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Penguins: Penguins are susceptible to the effects of ocean pollution and are influenced by the changing shape of the ice flows of the Antarctic coast, some of which are melting due to global warming. All donations go towards making our world’s oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.  source:

Butter and sugar are placed in the skillet and cooked on top of the stove until the sugar is melted. Then thin sliced apples are next added with a handful of raisins to the skillet.  The apples can cook on low heat while you mix the cake batter. The batter is poured over the apples and the cake is baked right in the…
