Lunatic Loves These Links

Hi folks.

Okay so strap yourself in, buckle those seat belts and all hands inside the ride at all times. I have some posts I am behind on so you’re going to get 5 over the course of the weekend. But I need to catch up so I can move forward with Christmas posts soon. Yup, you heard it. Christmas is coming up. Did you not notice. Alrighty roo folks, so again. Do not try to lift the bar before the ride is over.

Did I ever tell you I worked at Boblo Island when I was a teeny bopper. It used to be an amusement park. I was one of those lucky kids who worked summers there. We took a boat over to the island every day. Then I got to spend my days working in a restaurant I can not remember the name of. But we had to wear dutch type outfits that made us all look like barmaids. Yup, classy I know. The upside was getting to hang out after shifts and before shifts. We would go over before the patrons and “test the rides”. Can you imagine? I mean who has young kids test the rides young kids are operating. I look back now and think “holy hell”. Man were we stupid. Yet we had so much fun every day. I remember my cousin leaving me on a ride that spun upside down for 5 turns and the person I was with looking pretty green while I hooted and hollered “one more time, one more time”. Once a lunatic, always a lunatic.Anyhow moving on. Google Boblo Island later.

LUNATIC’S LOVING THIS “NEW TO ME” BLOG:

PICTURE PERFECT MEALS- Again I say I know, I know, they’re huge and been around forever. But I have not and I still don’t know ALL the blogs yet. Lol. I love this one though. Not only beautiful food but photography tips. I mean this is like a jackpot for someone like me who takes craptastic pictures. So I get to learn to cook from Cheryl and I get to learn what all the little symbols on my camera are from Adam. If you haven’t read this one you must run over there now and check it out. You will be so happy you did.


A MUST READ FOR ALL BLOGGERS, ESPECIALLY FOODIES:

A CULINARY JOURNEY WITH CHEF DENNIS- BLOGGING ETHICS 101- This one is super important folks. If you haven’t read it you must check it out. Last weekend a fellow blogger was caught using photos that did not belong to them.  Photos were taken from major food sites as well as from bloggers. It had been going on for almost 2 years. The fate of this person is undetermined but Chef Dennis gives you an insight to do’s and don’t’s for blogging. Whether you’re a seasoned blogger or a newbie like myself this is a must read!

    I owe a lot to both Adam and Cheryl at Picture-Perfect Meals. Also, Hubby, Dudette and I had the opportunity to share dinner with them once and we became friends in that long evening. They're an incredible couple. Such giving people and they're both so…alive. Very vivacious.

    Anyhow, I can't wait to see what twist you did on those mashed potatoes. Have a fantastic weekend.
