Flags and Fathers

Friday, June 14Flag Day (U.S.)

What we know fondly as the “Stars and Stripes” was adopted by the Continental

Congress as the official American flag on June 14, 1777, in the midst of the

Revolutionary War. Colonial troops fought under many different flags with various

symbols and slogans—rattlesnakes, pine trees, eagles, “Don't Tread on Me,” “Liberty or

Death,” and “Conquer or Die,” to name a few. The first flag had 13 stars on a blue field

and 13 alternating red and white stripes for the 13 original colonies. Now there are 50

stars, one for each state in the Union, but the 13 stripes remain. Flag Day was first

celebrated in 1877, on the flag's 100th birthday.

Since I will not be publishing a page on Father's day, below you will

find some interesting things about the day. I will miss wishing my

Dad a Happy Father's Day and buying him a card.

Sunday, June 16—Father’s Day

Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day has a modern origin. The idea came to Mrs. John Dodd

as she listened to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1910. Her father, William Smart, had raised

his children alone on his Washington farm after his wife died while giving birth to their

sixth child. Mrs. Dodd proposed to the Spokane Ministerial Association and the YMCA that

they celebrate a “father’s day” on June 5, her father’s birthday.

The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, and soon other towns

were having their own celebrations. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a law

declaring that it be celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June. Click to read the full

article on The History of Father’s Day.

you’re planning to take Dad out on the lake

for the day.

(Source of above information from The Old Farmer’s Almanac)


3 Cups Potatoes, peeled, boiled and cubed (approx. 1 lb)
1 lb Skinless Smoked Sausage
4 tbsp Butter
4 tbsp Flour
2 cups Milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/8 tsp Paprika
1/2 lb Velveeta cheese, diced
1/2 cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Cut skinless smoked sausage in half, lengthwise, and then chop into 1/2" pieces. Cook in a frying pan for about 15 minutes, turning frequently to slightly brown.
Preheat oven to 350°F
Place potatoes in 2 quart casserole. Add cooked meat and give it a gentle toss.
Mix all remaining ingredients (except for shredded cheese & the paprika) in a saucepan over medium heat until warm, melted and smooth. (stir constantly.)
Pour cheese sauce over potatoes and meat. Sprinkle shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top, and then sprinkle paprika evenly over the top.
Bake for 35-45 minutes (watch, until golden brown on top).

Hang on. 

It could be a bumpy ride.

 The Storm Prediction Center has much of Ohio in the moderate risk category for severe weather this afternoon and mainly tonight.  Showers and thunderstorms will develop with a warm front extending from low pressure in the Great Plains and draped across northern counties of Ohio.  Conditions will be ripe for severe storms or a multi-cell storm complex with damaging wind gusts, large hail and heavy rainfall late tonight and tomorrow. Flash flooding will be possible.  There's even a risk of isolated tornadoes north of the Columbus area. As the low moves east storms will diminish tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by. I would like for you all to know that Ohio

is expecting some pretty bad weather over the next couple of days.

Wednesday and Thursday. If for some reason you do not see my

pages published, you will know that we may have lost electric.

They seem pretty sure about this severe stuff headed our way, so that

is the only reason I am mentioning it. Do have a good day,

join me tomorrow hopefully - be safe, be always aware of

everything and everyone around you.

And now till another

time, I always wish ...
