Making Candy -
Check at Sue at Rue-Mouffetard - is my candy mentor! We went to the Le Cordon Bleu of Atlanta for lunch last month with a few other wonderful blogging friends. After lunch we went to a shop called Cake Art - well not only cake, but candy too. I had never made any so she gently encouraged me to do so! And I thank you Sue - I loved it a lot and so did my grandson. He is going to bring it in for his teacher on Friday - if there are any left! We do need to practice more - but this was good for our first tries.

Happy Birthday Debbie Reynolds - Wikipedia
Reynolds was born in El Paso, Texas, the second child of Maxine N.and Raymond Francis Reynolds, who was a carpenter for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Reynolds was a Girl Scout and a troop leader (a scholarship in her name is offered to high-school age Girl Scouts). Her family moved to Burbank, California, in 1939, and she was raised in a strict Nazarene faith. At age 16, while a student at Burbank's John Burroughs High School, Reynolds won the Miss Burbank Beauty Contest, a contract with Warner Brothers, and acquired her new first name.
