To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Beer Cheese Dip....A White Christmas Indeed!
I believe it was magical.....they predicted we would have snow Christmas day and lo and behold....we did! Thunderstorms rolled across the Christmas Eve night sky and about 1:00 on Christmas day, here came the rain and sleet. Some of the family had just arrived. We prepared the Mimosa's and watched the snowfall!It was a snowstorm worthy of Maine! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day and enjoyed family and friends.
I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a cooking break! We need to begin the task of taking down the Christmas decor and prepare for New Year's Eve. This is an easy, I mean easy, delicious dip for toasting in 2013.
Happy New Year to All!
