He sits down at the bar and orders some dirty rum.

Its always hard for me to come up with new breakfast ideas-especially since it isnt my favorite meal of the day. I KNOW its the most important meal, so Im trying. Heres a couple that I like.
1 ¾ c plain low-fat yogurt
2 T smooth peanut butter
1-2 T honey
2 large bananas, sliced
2 c lightly sweetened multigrain clusters
In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, peanut butter, and honey until smooth. Divide half the yogurt mixture among 4 six-ounce glasses or custard cups. Top with half the banana slices and half the multigrain clusters. Repeat layers once. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
1 c regular rolled oats
1 c quick-cooking barley
1 c bulgur or cracked wheat
1 c dried cranberries, snipped dried apricots, or raisins

1/3 c sugar
1 T ground cinnamon
1/4 t salt
Fat-free milk, optional
In a large bowl, stir together oats, barley, bulgur, cranberries, almonds, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cover tightly and store at room temperature up to 2 months (stir or shake mixture before measuring).

I was helping a buddy of mine, who is an orthopedic surgeon, move into his new office, by using my car to help transport some of his office equipment.
I had decided to position his somewhat fragile display skeleton
by strapping it into the passenger seat of my car.
At one traffic light, the stares of the people in the car beside me caused me to roll down the window and explain, Im delivering him to a doctors office.
The other driver leaned out of his window and commented,
I hate to tell you this, but it looks like you may be a bit too late!
SEE YOU SOON!!!
May the Holy Spirit Guide You! God Bless
