Let It Be

I am a huge fan of The Beatles. My favorite song by The Beatles changes depending on my moods and what is going on in my life. My most recent favorite is Let It Be. I love the melody, and the words.  The lyrics tell me to let go of problems, which sometimes I struggle with. And the song brings back happy memories of seeing McCartney live. And all of those times I saw people sing it at Beatlefest. Yes, I do like the song Let It Be.

As a rule I don’t like cover songs of where they really change a song by The Beatles, but occasionally one will stand out. And sometimes I may not like the cover that well when I first hear it, but later when it is more appropriate in my life it really strikes a chord. So when I heard the cover of Let It Be from the movie Across the Universe again it was time for me to say wow, this cover is almost as good as the original. Well almost at least. I think because of the lessons I’ve had to learn in patience, forgiveness, and well the death of a loved one over this past year has drawn out the interpretation of this song to me. It has more meaning than it did a few years ago.


So take a listen to this version of Let It Be, and let me know what you think of it. Which version do you like better?

Five Year Old Tests Positive for Cocaine

When I read the news, I never cease to be amazed at what I read. And when I read that a couple was arrested in California after a five year old tests positive for cocaine. When I read the headline, I thought how on earth would a five year old have access to cocaine? But believe it or not it is possible. According to the stories I read, a man was arrested for possession of cocaine. In his car was his five year old son, who was sitting very close to bags of drugs. And I thought to myself what was the father thinking? Was this take your child to work day? Couldn’t he find a baby sitter, or did he just want to spend quality time with his child? And my mind wandered to the chase scene in Raising Arizona.



And I thought to myself, is there any circumstances that would justify a father taking his child along to a drug deal? I quickly thought no. And then I thought about the mother. I wondered if she knew that the child’s father was taking him along on drug deals. Needless to say both parents have been charged with child endangerment along with a few other charges.  And the five year old along with his two other siblings have been taken by child protection services. I know that I have made light of some of this story, but I do believe that taking the children away from their parents is probably a good thing.



And this story does make me angry in some ways. There are so many individuals who want children. They would be good parents. They would do nothing to put their children in danger like these parents reportedly have, but for one reason or another they are not able to have children. Good people have difficulty adopting children, and they are forced to go to foreign countries to adopt. And while I only know the circumstances that were reported in the news, I believe that these children would probably be better with some of those loving families. And I wonder what will become of the five year old whose father felt it was acceptable to take his child along on a drug deal. Will he be one of those children who gets lost in the foster care system, or will he be one of the kids who comes out and makes a good life for himself?

Easy Bacon Cheddar Pretzels

Oktoberfest will soon be with us, and part of that great time of partying is the pretzel. So here is an easy bacon cheddar pretzel for your Oktoberfest celebrations. And I do mean this is easy.

easy bacon cheddar pretzels

First you need some pretzels. You know the doughy ones like you buy at Aunt Annie’s. You can make your own, which I prefer to do, but sadly didn’t have the time for today. Here’s a link to a great homemade pretzel recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. They are whole wheat, so they may be a little healthier than the average pretzel.

But if you don’t have time to make your own pretzels, you can buy the frozen ones in the freezer section at the grocery store.

Now take those already prepared pretzels, and get your shredded cheese out. Spread a large handful across the top of the pretzel. Then sprinkle some bacon bits on top of the cheese. Next place those soft pretzels in the oven at 400 degrees.  And bake them for 4 to 5 minutes. Enough time for the pretzel to warm up, and the cheese to melt, but not overcook. And that’s how you make easy bacon cheddar pretzels.

Did you know that the traditional dip for pretzels is not cheese, it’s actually mustard. So don’t forget to serve it with mustard. And if you’re going all traditional, when you make a toast with your drink that is served with the pretzel. Say prost and not cheers. It's the traditional German toast.
