    I'm off. Having a good day. The crock pot has stew in it and I'm making an apple crisp. I may even make a pan of apple slices, as the kids brought home literally baskets of apples from the orchard.

    I not only celebrate Christopher Colombus day, I think we ought to have a Vasco Núñez de Baboa day, a Hernado Cortez Day, a Vasco De Gama Day, and an Hernado De Soto day, too.

    One simply cannot have too many patriotic holidays as far as I'm concerned.

    make apple butter in the crock pot. just core the apples...pile in...add a wee bit of water....cook for 8 hours or so....mash if needed...put into sterilzed jars and hot water bath for 30 minutes. some people add red hots for sugar and cinnomon. just spice to your tastes.
