Ponder of the Day
~~~~~5 Lessons In Life From Dr. Seuss~~~~~

1. Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

2. Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

3. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction that you choose.

4. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

5. Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.

╰♥╮Oregon Fiddlers Lemon Anniversary Cake ╰♥╮

3 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs; separated, at room temp
2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sift before measuring
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup lemon curd, purchased

1 cup lemon curd, purchased

Cake - preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or spray with nonstick baking spray with flour. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and salt. Sift into another large bowl. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed 2 minutes, until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in lemon juice and vanilla. At low speed, beat in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture (about 4 flour additions and 3 buttermilk additions). Beat just until blended. In small glass or metal bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. With rubber spatula, gently fold egg white mixture, in thirds, into batter. Spread batter in prepared pans. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on racks 10 minutes Invert onto racks. Cool.

Make frosting. In large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter 2 minutes, until fluffy. At low speed, beat in confectioners sugar, cream, and lemon curd until smooth. Cover; chill 20 minutes, until spreadable consistency.

Using serrated knife, level tops of layers if necessary. Place 1 layer on serving plate; spread with lemon curd. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes to set the lemon curd. Top with remaining layer. Frost cake; refrigerate. Bring cake to room temperature for serving. Garnish with fresh berries or candied lemon slices, if desired.

Please indulge me for a moment. I am on a mission

As many of you know my grandson ( shown here a few weeks ago
has HLHS and has had 2 open heart surgeries and another on the horizon.
Eventually he will need a heart transplant.

A few weeks ago I asked for prayers for another HLHS baby whose heart suddenly failed and he needed a transplant.
Hunter died waiting for a heart - he was almost 2 years old.
This is personal for me, so I appreciate your indulgence as I continue to ask for prayers for this family.
If you or anyone you know is interested in organ donation here are a few sites that may be of interest.
Organ donation is often overlooked and many are in need.

KayKay, Organ donation is one of the easiest things that a person can do and can touch so many lives..

Posted on Aug 1, 2013 10:08:11 PM PDT
Wishing, Hoping and praying for the best at the Dr. today..

@ KayKay
Thank you for starting today.
What a good idea to list the whole month regarding the starter schedule.
Regarding the ponders of the day, love No.2 but I am a little worried about No.5, I will have to be careful choosing my words in my posts today LOL

Red we love your words. Even noticed that Donna picked up one of yours in a recent post. Brick. Love it and will. Never forget it. I think that one word made my day that day.

Much like blood donation. So easy to do yet there always seems to be a shortage.

@ KayKay
I am definitely hooked up on your mission, DS and I are up for organ donation, in DK we get red cards to keep in our wallets, so the info is readily available - should it be necessary, I advocate it often, also for people to be blood donors, easy and actually healthy, one doesn't get paid for donating blood in DK nor in UK, and that in my mind is how it should be - I mean, it IS called donation. Unfortunately/fortunately there are lots of restrictions here regarding who can donate, tattoos and piercings and certain foreign travel keep a lot of the young people at bay - but I keep asking everyone if they donate and tell them that they should.
Thank you for bringing it to the forefront of my mind. ♥

When I get on a mission as I call it - things that I can do to further the project seem to run through my mind constantly. Not long ago it was Breezy Point. I made calls, wrote letters, emails posted on Facebook. So many things. And I tend to be persistent so all those recipients should expect to hear from me again.

I was not sure about posting that message here but I decided that if it was not a good idea someone would let me know.

Condolences to Hunter's family - I am sorry that they only had the possibility of knowing a wonderful child for such a short period of time - I hope that they will be able to rejoice in their good memories ♥

Thank you for the links to
The Aromatherapy & Essential Oils Handbook by Rashelle Johnson
Herbal Remedies A-Z by Barbara Griggs
that you posted yesterday.
Do you use Aromatherapy or Herbal Remedies yourself ?

Posted on Aug 1, 2013 10:56:28 PM PDT
No I never have but I have been thinking about looking into it..

Posted on Aug 1, 2013 10:59:16 PM PDT
Thanks everyone for your kind words and good wishes. I'm sure this appt. will be a breeze an I'll be back here tomorrow telling you how easy it all went. ;-)

Great start as usual KayKay. I love the 5 Lessons in Life from Dr. Seuss. He lived here in La Jolla which is a hop, skip and a jump from me and his widow Audrey Giesel still lives here.

@ Sandy
I was so pleased to see the links, I have DTB's but haven't looked at them for a while and having them on kindle will be so nice and handy - I am a great believer of the oils but not been into herbal much only what can be bought OTC at the pharmacy/chemist so now will look into it in more detail.
BTW so glad that you have got lots of sleep in and hope that you are doing better altogether

Thanks Red. Hunters family is doing well. They are struggling financially but even that has not damped their faith and gratefulness for what they have.
