Kitchen and Household Tips for this week:


To prevent cakes from cracking while they cool, add one
envelope of unflavored gelatine to the dry ingredients of
any cake batter. This will prevent cracking, and will also
make the cake fuller. The gelatin does not change the flavor
or moistness of the cake.

Use unflavored dental floss to slice evenly and cleanly
through a cake or torte. Simply stretch a length of the
floss taut and press down through the cake.

If you have kitchen or household tips that you would like
to share with fellow readers, please jot them down and and
email them to:

News from Possum Waller

I tell ya it is getting harder to find some humor in life that's for
sure. I
keep looking for it and some days I do find some. Seems I have to walk a

line and not tick somebody off, (not that I care). So the good news is
new outhouse is installed, the bad is that it is getting cold and it's a
walk out there, good news is the new catalogs are arriving, bad news
that there way to slick this year. Good news is that someone is printing
the zero dollar, maybe I can use that. But Fall is here and the woods
turning pretty shades colors. Good news is I took down the old sheet I
was using for curtains and put up some new sheets. Holidays are coming
so start shopping now.

Take my wife...please
My wife drives the wrong way on a one way street. The cop pulled her
over and asked, "Where are you going?" My wife said, "I must be late,
everyone is all coming back!"
A little more humor ...

You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes,
can't they make the whole plane out of the same substance?


You can't take it with you... and with high taxes, lawyer's fees, and
expenses, you can't leave it behind either.
