"Education will not make you happy. Some people are very highly educatedů but they have too much stress. Too much worry. Knowledge will make you happy."
"Respect the non-believer."
"Happiness has nothing to do with religion. Happiness comes from the individual."
"ALL major religions teach us to practice love and forgiveness."
"Nature created day and night. So at night, sleep. Or, if you prefer, have sex."

I work with the public in an ice cream store. We have some coupons circulating, some for sundaes, couple bucks off a cake, or buy one cone get one $0.99. I personally hate fine print, but try to be aware of what the coupon says: restrictions on layered sundaes and banana splits or have to pay extra for price waffle cones (nothing about our sprinkled plane cones, which we do charge extra for)
Father comes in, flashes the coupon to be sure we honored them. Proceeded to get two jr. scoops in the little sprinkled cones. He saved $1.30 with his coupon but then gained the price back BECAUSE he wanted the sprinkled cones (clearly priced, right in front of the display!!!). I should have already been clocked out, it was after my shift....and this guy is being too cheap to buy his kids' sprinkle cones?!? He proceeds to tell me how ridiculous it was for me to be charging him for his cones (because the coupon only mentions the waffle cones, which we also charge extra for).
Customer: That's ridiculous! Charging me for cones!!!!
Me: Sir, the coupon is for the cones included....plain "regular" cone or a sugar cones. Waffle cones and sprinkled plain cones cost extra.
That's when noticed the "fine print" only mentions the extra cost of waffle cones :P
Customer: Well then I want the plain cones! You want me to give you those cones back?!
What a jerk, so at this point would be basically taking the ice cream from kids and would have to throw away the cones anyway. But, I sooooo wanted to take the scoops off and give him plain cones~but his kids would see me as the meanie instead of their ignorant father!
So I replied: "you know what sir, forget it I WILL PAY for the sprinkles cones!!" and then I busted out my whopping $1.50 and he got BOTH his sprinkle cones for FREE......PLUS I still let him use the coupon. And can see on his receipt that I PAID for his stupid cones with MY cash. He didn't even thank me, what an a**hole!

What an awesome episode! I'm good about no spoilers, but can't help sharing my favorite line from the whole episode.
Father Gabriel: But this is the house of the Lord!
Maggie: No, it's just four walls and a roof.
Really interesting where the show is going~seriously need to read the other half of the comics....I'm still at the prison :P

I'm one of those weird folks that will eat bananas a certain way, in cereals, on a PB sandwich, and ice cream sundae.....but didn't eat two of my bananas fast enough. Not liking to waste food, decided to try out a recipe originally gave to coworker. I bought some chocolate chips for Monsters Bars planning to make for Halloween.....still have time, so threw them into the mix. 45 minutes later, have delicious pan of banana bread!
link to the recipe I used.....next time, think will add the nuts too.

The lady of the day.....my Grandma, matriarch of dad's side of the family. Strong woman raised six boys and one girl by herself.....and she lives to see 90 years old!
Every now and then, my aunt and uncles recreate the Sears portrait they took in the 70's......of course this is the goofy take cause that's just how they are!
Dad and my great aunt Frida, showing Grams how to take a selfie lol
I don't fly home often enough........mostly because I HATE flying :P I can't believe live so far away from my family~we have always been tight, it was just us moving around with the military. Got to squeeze in fun at the Apple Orchard on a rainy (slightly snowy, my aunts had to point out!) day before the party. I miss doing stuff like that with them....watching my niece grow up!
Sitting in the Cider barn, eating apple cinnamon cake doughnuts, after sampling all kinds of salsas and chip dips......yum! The Potato tent opened just in time......loaded, even tried a bite of sister's with broccoli.
