Penn State Creamery’s New Flavor: Grilled Stickies

As a Penn Stater who loves ice cream – I pay attention when the Penn State Creamery introduces a new flavor especially on April 2 when the new flavor is called “Grilled Stickies”.

cinnamon bun flavored ice cream with sticky bun dough pieces and a cinnamon streusel swirl

If that description did not sell it – the photo did:

With that – I put my order in yesterday and look forward to getting that package in the mail.

Training Jack

We have had Jack for over two years and training him was long overdue. Overall he is a good dog, but he definitely needs to go through some training to be a better listener and to make sure he knows where he stands in the pack. Earlier this week we started training and for the first week he has to be tethered to me for most of the day and then keep the leash on for the remainder of the time until I can tether him to me again.

I came home from a meeting and found Pepper – the born again sheep dog that herded cattle in his previous life – holding on to Jack’s leash. The picture captures the order in the pack between them perfectly. Pepper is constantly watching Jack, drinking his water, and near by almost all day.

Even though Jack is my third dog – it is nice to be working with someone so that Jack and our family have the best relationship possible. I just wish I would have done this when we first got him. Greyhounds can be pretty stubborn…but there is no one that can be more stubborn than me so he does not have a chance.

If Only It Was That Easy…

On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic – I saw this sign at the airport:

Even with bug repellent – those mosquitos were all over me and I came back with all sorts of bites. Perhaps someone needs to let the CDC know it is harder than not letting the mosquitos biting people.

Thanks You…

Recently when we were in the Dominican Republic – saw this sign on one of the busses we took to/from the airport.

Looks like they forgot the “s” after “tip” but decided it belonged after “thank” instead.

Made Me Feel Tall…

I recently had some work done on our LR4 and the mechanic had a Ferrari in the showroom. This was the first time I ever sat in one and I could not get over how low to the ground/short it was. Fortunately for me – my legs are short and I could fit in the car. I am not sure how people much taller than me can feel comfortable in this car – but it was really cool to experience.

Fortunately Cora also went with me and got to sit in it as well. Not too much longer and she could actually reach the pedals/see out the windshield. Help us all…

Cold Day?

On out way to the zoo yesterday – I saw this sign (note it is from a Science/Math Academy) showing the temperature at -196F. I was warm enough I did not have a jacket on. Perhaps this is some of the “fake news”? (Made me laugh)

Fun Recent Finds

Over the last few weeks I have found some really cool things I wanted to share…

ABC’s The Goldbergs

When I first saw this show advertised I thought to myself “this looks like a great show”…and that was it. FINALLY I caught a few episodes and as expected – I love it. It is based in the 1980s from a young boy’s perspective. Growing up the in 1980s myself – the episodes I watched really brought my back to my childhood – with my tape collection and all great things from that decade.

If you have not seen it – give it a look: http://abc.go.com/shows/the-goldbergs. New episodes will be available this fall.
