Too many distractions yesterday, but today I plan to make great progress of reading this gem!!!!

MallenNC And he's already here in North Carolina helping with his team! 11mo
Leigh0906 @MallenNC He dropped off meals to the shelters in my hometown yesterday! Part of my mom‘s job is overseeing nursing staffing at the shelters, and she told me the workers and evacuees were so grateful for a hot meal! 11mo
Tjackson @MallenNC I saw him speak Friday night about the book and he shared what was already in@place in NC. It is a great book and proceeds go his World Central Kitchen 501c3 organization so they can continue to do this great work. 11mo

Had to take a break from reading my books to read a few recipes on how to bake Old Bay wings. This is my second batch in 2 days and both were successful!!! Now, I am ready to have guests over to enjoy them. I am not a cook. I think this makes the 6th dish I can make - enchiladas, guacamole, crab dip, chocolate covered strawberries that look and taste like a professional made them, and scrambled eggs. I am not a cook, but these are delicious!!!!

Bklover Those look delicious! Care to share the recipe!!? 12mo
Tjackson @Bklover a dozen wings, 1 tablespoon of old bay, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt, coat the dry wings thoroughly with the mix, bake on 425 for 1 hour, turning every 20 minutes. Bake on a wire rack on a cookie sheet covered in foil. Coat the rack with oil so they don‘t stick. I sprinkle more old bay when I turn them. 12mo
tpixie Yum!! Thx! 12mo

44/52-🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5! This is an outstanding book that document historical events that took place during World War II, as well as sharing Dr Madeline Albright‘s family history. She is a brilliant writer and thinker. Above is the last paragraph of the book and I highly recommend reading it!

74% read of this 731 page book! I started it in late April and put it down after 350pages, but today should be the day to finish it! It is a wonderful book about a time in history that is terribly sad, but the stories need to be told and never forgotten.

Dr. Madeline Albright, former Secretary of State, got a D- in geography in 1st grade!!! She improved to a B. I would say she has improved to an AAAAA+ over the years.

Reading this book makes me sad and angry. It is very informative and I wish more people would explore the atrocities of the past, so we don‘t repeat history - but we are repeating it right next now. The media is not the enemy of the state!

Woke up with a tension headache, had to put my car in the shop because engine light came on, so I called in sick and spending my day watching Netflix and reading.... I am feeling better already.... at least until the mechanic calls😅😅😅

tammysue Glad you‘re feeling better! ♡ 12mo
Tjackson @whatshesreadingnow $400 worth of work being done on my car. It could have been worse. 12mo
tammysue @Tjackson Tension headaches are awful. I‘m so glad to hear it wasn‘t more than $400. We were in the tire sales + roadside service / auto repair business and it can be very costly depending on what‘s wrong, especially nowadays with cars being computerized. Everything is so darn expensive anymore. 🙁 12mo

No reading time today because I spent my day in Washington DC being a counter protester - standing up for love and equality and against the alt-right and racism. Everything was peaceful where I was and we outnumbered them by thousands. Education and reading can end ignorance.

Chrissyreadit I‘m so jealous. I‘m glad it went well. Hoping to get to the protest by the White House next week (the nightly one) 12mo

I started reading this book in May and stopped around page 350 of 731 pages. I‘m determined to finish reading this book this month. The stories make me sad and angry, but I am learning a lot. He is a brilliant person!

43/52-🌟🌟🌟🌟 - thus us a good book for married couples with children. Lots of great information about equal parenting and flexible work arrangements. I like many aspects of the book, but I am single with kids so much didn‘t really apply to me. As a supervisor, I paid attention to the flexible work and language about treating men and women equal. Not new information, but still interesting.

Patricia Pollacco is an awesome story teller! This one is about her Irish great-great-grandmother! A story about immigration fro Ireland to Chicago, love of family and culture, economic hardship, and the Great Chicago Fire. 💚 it!
