Random Photo

Josiah, Sierra and Lenna Candler along with Melissa, Caleb and I enjoying the best
Ice Cream in the South (or in the world, for that matter)- Blue Bell.


And I read the nuttiest thing in WORLD magazine today. Get this:

"Seeking some sort-any sort-of notoriety, a pair of San Francisco men possibly shook their way into Guinness World Records after Completing a marathon handshake 30 minutes longer than the previous record.
Kevin Whittaker and Cory Jens shook hands for nine and a half hours May 26 after flipping through the record book and searching for something they could best. Guinness only requires the two partners to clasp hands and move them up and down to fulfill the requirements of a handshake.
"I looked up what some of the weakest records were," Whittaker said. "I'm not going to break the 100-meter dash record, but I thought I could break this record."

Strange. *shakes head* The things people do nowadays...*goes to look and see what record I can break* :-)

God bless your week!!

P.S. And THIS video (the second one) on Emil's blog made me laugh so hard!!!

Hi Jessica! This is Lady Ash!

It's amazing what ridiculous and unthinkable things people will do in order to hold a "world record". Many seem to have lost their minds. ;)

Yes, Blue Bell ice cream is the best!

Have you tried Spotted Cow ice cream? It's locally made and sold at the Spotted Cow stores in Peoria. I know that it's not *Southern* ice cream, but it's still pretty good.

And someday, remind me to tell you about the disappointing fall of Smith's hot dogs....

Hey Ash! I miss blue bell as well. :( We go through it so quickly whenever we bring some up from the South, and then we have to content ourselves with Prairie Farms. :( Ah well...

Allison, that's exactly what I think!

Mr. Ben-Ezra, I've never heard of "spotted cow" ice cream, but I'll have to keep an eye out for it if it's better than Breyers or Prairie Farms (which are the only other two that we get sometimes)!! Though I must say that "Ben and Jerry's" has good ice cream, it's just expensive. :(

Elissa, thank you! I love it too!! :-)
