 Quote of the Day:

Reflections on Life
"What people really need and demand from life is not wealth, comfort, or esteem but games worth playing. He who cannot find a game worth playing is apt to fall prey to accidie -- paralysis of the will, a failure of appetite, a condition of generalized boredom, total disenchantment -- 'God, of God, how weary, stale, flat and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world!'”

--Robert S. De Ropp

National Waffle Day

It’s National Waffle Day! On this day in 1968, the first U.S. waffle iron was patented. These fluffy delights pair excellently with almost any topping. Butter and maple syrup, fruit and whipped cream, or even a big scoop of ice cream—the choice is yours!
Did you know that the first waffles ever cooked were in Ancient Greece? It’s true! The Greeks would cook flat cakes called “obelios” between two metal pans over a fire. Today, all you need is a waffle iron to make your own delicious waffles!
Traditionally, waffles are served at breakfast. However, there are so many ways to enjoy them that you could eat waffles at any time of day. Chicken and waffles and corn waffles are just two examples of the numerous savory varieties that exist. Hit your local diner or heat up your waffle iron today to enjoy National Waffle Day!

 Quote of the Day:

Reflections on Life
"'The road,' wrote Cervantes, 'is always better than the inn.' Those who settle on fame or fortune, and having arrived, call it quits, miss the whole point of life. Realistically, there is no inn, no ultimate point of arrival. It is the road now and forever, finite man probing infinity, finding his way, endlessly. All that matters are the lessons learned along the way."
