Dinner Is Done! Out Pesky Calories (Page Three)
Calories on a platter....
Did You Know? - Shortcake is a sweet biscuit (in the American sense: that is, a crumbly, baking soda- or baking powder-leavened bread).
Shortcake is typically made with flour, sugar, baking powder or soda, salt, butter, milk or cream, and sometimes eggs. The dry ingredients are blended, and then the butter is cut in and mixed (or "combined") until the mixture resembles cornmeal. The liquid ingredients are then mixed in just until moistened, resulting in a wet batter. The batter is then dropped in spoonfuls onto a baking sheet or poured into a cake form, and baked until set.

Holly and Donna go off-roading
Did You Know? - Off-roading is the recreation of driving or riding a vehicle on unsurfaced roads or tracks, made of materials such as sand, gravel, riverbeds, mud, snow, rocks, and other natural terrain. There are many different vehicles, tires, surfaces, skills, and experience that is associated with off-roading. There are many recreational sports such as; dune bashing, cross-country, raid, greenlading, mudding/bogging, rock crawling, rock racing, competitive trails and winch events.
Also there are many other topics that are included in off-roading like events and organizations. Vehicles and modifications, body lifts, suspension lifts, axle lifts, tires and traction control also are major things that happen before off roading. There are things such as dangers of vehicle lifting and vehicle protection. Criticism of ORV, enviromental impact, mojave desert controversy, roadless area conservation and public staments are the safety precautions that follow off-roading. Off roading will only intrest thoses willing to take the risk.

Time To Warm The Place Up

Meanwhile Off The Dance Floor
Our resident foreman checks the floor for safety hazards as the line dancers are warming up
Donna spun off the floor and landed in the middle of the line dancers
Did You Know? - Although line dancing is associated with country-western music and dance, it has a similarities to folk dancing. Many folk dances are danced in unison with dancers arranged in one or more rows and often connected with the dancers next to them; while these rows are described as "lines," they may curve, corner, or otherwise be nonlinear in the geometric sense. The Balkan countries, among others, have a rich tradition of line dance surviving to the present. These folk line dances are also performed in the international folk dance movement. Folk line dances have many forms: pairs of lines in which the dancers face each other, or a line formed into a circle, or the line follows around the dance floor. The dancers may hold hands with their neighbors, or use an arm-on-shoulder hold, or hold their neighbor's belts.

It's really a balancing act
Did You Know? - In a four-wall dance, the direction faced at the end of the sequence is 90 degrees to the right or left from the direction in which they faced at the beginning. As a result, the dancers face each of the four walls in turn at the end of four consecutive repetitions of the sequence, before returning to the original wall. The hustle line dance is an example of a four-wall dance because in the final figure they turn 90 degrees to the left to face a new wall. In some dances, they turn 270 degrees, a "three-quarter turn," to face the new wall.

The gentlemen's version of wallflowers
Did You Know? - In social situations, a wallflower is a slang term used to describe shy or unpopular individuals who do not socialize or participate in activities at social events. It is most often used to describe someone who stays close to a wall and out of the main area of social activity. The term originated from ballroom dances, where the people who did not wish to dance (or had no partner) remained close to the walls of the dance hall. The wallflower, genus Erysimum, sometimes grows on old walls.
