Tuesday Teaser NYEve Class


Woo Hoo Students!   Have you Commented yet???

That’s the first order of business this morning – and we have been CLEARED by Clowie and company that the school and grounds are in order so let’s get this New Year’s Eve Class started!

Security Reporting – ALL IS RIGHT IN OUR WORLD TODAY!!!!!

It’s the very last class of the year 2019 so let’s make it a goodie.  Our Graphics Department found a great photo (we think but we MIGHT be a little bit biased) and we think it might provide a challenge for you today.

“I’m up for a challenge today but won’t be in any condition for a challenge tomorrow!”

Let’s review our RULES for the guessing of today’s photo location AND show you the special NEW YEARS EVE badges we have for you to win IF YOU ARE LUCKY!    Tomorrow at Tell All on New Year’s Day we’ll let you know who gets what!

There you have it – the lineup of badges you just might get one or more of tomorrow if you are on TOP OF YOUR GAME!

“I’m definitely at the top of my game…..practicing for NYEve dancing!”

Well that’s wonderful but right now we need you to concentrate on the TEASER photo.    If you’re ready to see it, we’re ready to SHOW IT!

I had a nice vacation but it’s good to be back. Here’s today’s photo Professors!

WHERE IT THIS???    WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN????   Hmmm?????    Give it your best shot students………………this is the last Teaser of the OLD YEAR and the awards will be made on the first day of the NEW YEAR.

Cheer Team?    Give these students a shot in the arm (so to speak) and fire them up to study hard and guess this week’s photo will you??

Here we are all cute and perky
Ready for some New Year’s Eve turkey
We’re ready to party and that’s no lie
Our champagne’s cold so we can get high!
First we have to say good luck to you
This photo’s a toughie and we have no clue
There are special badges to win so you’d better TRY
Cuz if you don’t, you’ll just break down and CRY!

Thanks Team – and thanks for a year of great cheers and silliness – what would we do without you?   We don’t wanna know right students???


Yeah….these chicks are GROOVY….

Now who’s UP for some lunch?    I’m sure we Professors aren’t the only ones ready for something to eat………………………

I’m supposed to be fed regularly – let’s EAT!

I’m getting a headache because I need FOOD!

Hello Students! Happy New Year’s Eve………..enjoy your lunch!

Have a FUN


SPARKS on Monday and Reminder


Hello Monday again AND it’s almost a brand new year.   Wow……where did 2019 go?   Well, anyway it’s time to SPARK………………What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

As it’s a new year we’re on the verge of, I looked for something appropriate to be our final SPARK of the year………..which happens to be also our FIRST thought about the New Year coming!

May your new year be full of WHATEVER it is you feel you need to “make it worth it” !

Hugs, Pam

As usual, Teddy has asked that I give Tuesday Teaser a “plug” – so consider it done.   Tomorrow will be Teddy’s geography class (guessing where a photo was taken) and it will go LIVE at a unspecified time so it will be a big surprise when it pops in your inbox.   Then you have to study it and hope you win a badge for all your efforts – it’s what we do around here on Tuesdays – AND it’s fun!   See you there……………….

Sunday Selfie Hop


Happy Sunday!   The very last Sunday of the year 2019 too.    Mom did take some new photos of me this week but guess what – they were “on my back” photos when I was napping.   She seems to be fixated on those poses.   Looks like we’ll be flashing back for our selfie today.     If you’d like to join in the fun – go for it – just click on the badge above and link up to The Cat On My Head and you’ll be showing off like WE are!

I looked through the photo files for a photo of me taken as close to exactly a year or maybe two years before today.    Let’s see what I found shall we????

YAY!   This one was from December 31, 2017 – I was having my first New Year’s Eve with my Mom and Dad.   Adopted in February of 2017 and just look at me – made myself right at home huh?   I even did this card from me to everyone then so why change a good thing huh?    I wish you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR again for the year 2020!

If you would like a puzzle of this one – here you go!

click my little MINI-ME photo and you’ll get your puzzle!   I changed it from its’ originally done 168 pieces to 99 so it might be easier!   ENJOY

Party Hearty on NYEve but be careful !  Love Teddy


Bakin’ With Bacon, The King and a Guest!


Hello Bacon Fans!   I have my friend and Guest Chef Raz with me today for this recipe.


Raz and his Mom keep an eye out for what they think are delicious baconized recipes and when we use one of them, my friend Raz is kind enough to help me whip them up in the kitchen for you!     This one is REALLY easy and what a PERFECT New Year’s Day Morning breakfast it would make.     You can adjust this recipe’s proportions for whatever size group (even if it’s one or two!) you are having – there aren’t a lot of ingredients involved but this is MMMMMMMMMM good and LOT CARB!

Raz why don’t you tell our visitors what we’re making today?

Raz:  “It’s a super yummy, super delicious, bacon and brie frittata Teddy!”

I think everyone will like this one Raz………………

Low Carb Bacon And Brie Frittata Recipe

  • 8 slices bacon chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 ounces brie sliced thin (easiest to do when it’s cold)
  1. In a 10 inch saute pan, cook chopped bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel lined plate. Reserve skillet and 2 tbsp of the bacon grease.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with cream, garlic, salt and pepper and about two thirds of the cooked bacon. Set skillet over medium low heat and swirl remaining bacon grease to coat bottom and sides.
  3. Pour egg mixture into skillet and cook undisturbed until edges are set up center is still somewhat loose, about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat broiler to high and set an oven rack on the second highest setting in the oven. Lay slices of brie on top of frittata. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Broil until puffed and golden brown, about 5 minutes, watching carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  5. Remove and let cool a few minutes before serving.

See how it would be easy to make a larger frittata to serve more people?    Just change your amounts.    This is one of those things that is absolutely MELT IN YOUR MOUTH.

How about a bite of this frittata?   Oh boy!

Give this recipe a whirl for New Year’s Day – OR if not then, as soon as you can get the ingredients.    Trust me – it’s wonderful and I also know that this can be a very basic type recipe that you could ADD ingredients of your choice to and it would be just as delicious (or better!).

We Chefs Wish You A Happy New Year (with bacon)!!!!

Your Chefs, King Teddy and Friend Furever Raz!

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday


Have you recovered from the holidays yet?    We KIND of have.  All the presents have now been put away (except mine of course – my toys are everywhere!) – all the rearranged furniture is back where it belongs (from company being over) and Mom has caught up on all the laundry (miracle).    I’m snoozing under the tree without interference from wrapped gifts (heavenly) and even though I know my tree time is coming to an end soon, I’m already looking forward to seeing it pop out of the basement next year.    In the meantime, we are still all getting together for Friday fun with the Blog Hop co-hosted by 15andmeowing and four-legged furballs.   So much fun – they each give us two sentences with blanks and all we have to do is fill in and share – we learn tons about everybody and they learn about us!   Cool huh?

Here are the sentences they gave us for this week.    I’m letting Mom fill in this week – just a little extra Christmas gift from me.    (tee hee)   Take it away Mom!

1. On New Year’s Eve, I will be sound asleep when we enter the year 2020 – as usual!
2. My focus word for 2020 is LOVE – why?   David and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2020.
3. Feeling like a “fresh start” is the best thing about starting a new year.
4. My personal goals for 2020 include weight loss, fitness, paying attention to my health, being HAPPY.


I hope all of you had a great Christmas now let’s put all our energy into having a GREAT NEW YEAR – sound like a plan?   GOOD!    Glad you’re on board with me.

Love, Teddy
