★~ Chicken Soup for the Soul Day:
We’re all aware of the magical healing powers of chicken soup. Co-authors and motivational speakers Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield wanted to capitalize on that warm and fuzzy feeling by sharing the inspirational stories of others in their book, “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”

We hope that this letter finds you well and sitting atop a plethora of stories that you just don’t know what to do with. We welcome stories from contributors of any age. Click here to read more and find out how to submit your inspirational story.
★~ Pizza With Everything Day (Except Anchovies):
Another pizza day? Lets start with Vickie’s recipe for Pizza Pot Pies, that I posted about last year. Pizza pot pies can be made with the toppings of your choice with or without anchovies. I know, some of you don’t like anchovies, some of you love them, and I seem to recall they remind someone of their parents.
In case you are wondering why you’re discouraged from adding anchovies to your pizza it is because the saltiness of the anchovies can mask all of the other delicious pizza flavors. Which is a good enough reason for me to skip them.

Believe it or not, my Dearly Beloved had a story about golf published in a Chicken Soup book.
Mr. Leotard had nice legs. No wonder he wanted to show them off.
Really? On what page? In what book??? I want to read it.
Mr. Leotard did have nice legs and he does look proud of them.
Pizza sounds good, especially on this brr-cold day with tiny snowflakes swirling!
I’m sorry to hear you forgot to hit Publish, but glad to know it happens to others, too. Of course, I try NOT to publish every day, so nobody’s expecting me the way we ALL expect Odd!
I don’t think Nadia’s 7 perfect 10s have ever been duplicated, have they? That must’ve been something to see!
I wondered if Nadia’s success had been duplicated but it appears her record still stands.
One of these days, I’ll write all my posts in advance and have one of those bloggers calendars with scheduled post until then it’s real time writing, flaws included. :-D. Odd keeps me sane.
Cosco pizza for this family. It’s pretty good.
I always manage to migrate to the rack of Chicken Soup books when waiting for a prescription at the drug store. I have two of the books around here somewhere. That’s impressive Mary Lee ^!
Love pizza! The last time I had anchovies was when one of the tiny bones lodged between my gum & tooth.
37* for us this morning with a couple more like mornings in store for us. Even rained overnight. Glad the rains stopped when it came time to walk Nik.
Bet the pups are liking your temps. Nothing like frisky dogs!
Ouch! How on earth did the anchovy manage that move?
Everyone is frisky around here. I’m ready for a pre winter nap. We went to the PW today with temps hovering around 28. It’s all about the right clothes. The pups loved it -although the Labs didn’t swim as much. The cold hits when they get out of the water.
Cole reminded me that 28 will feel like summer in a few weeks. I thanked him for sharing.
Glad your temps have dropped and the rain took an intermission during your walk.
Whoa I almost missed Pizza with everything day. I like anchovies but can leave them off this one time. I’ll order one this weekend.
A golf story? Written by the husband of an El Morno reader. I’d like to hear more.
I write a lot of notes to myself.
It’s cool here too. I hope to get some golf in tomorrow since the weekend weather doesn’t look promising.
See you in the morno.
Glad you showed up. I’ll try to find out more about the Chicken Soup story!
