Thankfully Niel finally went to the doctor. He hasn't been in a while and had been having awful indigestion and problems sleeping. The diagnosis was good. His lungs and heart are very healthy. Niel has GERD and with medication it can thankfully be treated! He just needs to take a test to see how long he has had it(we think for a while) and may be the cause of not just his indigestion problems, but his sleeping. When Niel told me what the doctor's diagnosis was and treatment, it was as if someone told me I won the lottery.

Dinner last night was Israeli chicken(minus the zucchini, just used the rest of the ingredients for the toping), Tabouleh Salad, and red pepper/Feta dip which we put on top of the chicken as well. I'll post the picture tomorrow. I forgot to email it to myself. It was really good!

America is named after Amerigo Vespucci, a pickle peddler from Italy who took a bread from selling his wares to go explore the New World in 1499. After reading Vespucci's accounts, a cartographer suggested that the new land be called America, and it stuck. (This should have been in their July issue.)
The earliest picture posted cards had room on the back for only postage and an address. But due to their growing popularity, on March 1, 1907, Congress granted vendors extra space for personalized message.
