Are you Ready for Fun at Ingelheim, Germany?

Ingelheim, Germany
When my Lemon Recipe went to Ingelheim, Germany and I found this video about Windsurfing on the Rhine River at Ingelheim I knew we would be in for a good time.
Watch the tricks of this expert windsurfer on the Rhine River
An interesting feature of Ingelheim is a well-developed Carnival culture and they have 4 Carnival clubs. There are various Carnival and Festivals throughout the year in Ingelheim
Fassenacht procession through the streets of Ober-Ingelheim, Ingelheim organized and conducted by Carneval Club 1898
Beautiful history tour of Ingelheim harbour on the Rhine River
Don't leave town before visiting The Museum bei der Kaiserpfalz (“Museum at the Imperial Palace”) because it has an exhibit dedicated to the Imperial Palace built in Ingelheim after 785 by Charlemagne.
You will want this newest published book about the tenth century history of Europe after visiting the Museum of the Imperial Palace. The Birth of the West by Paul Collins (published Feb.2013) The Birth of the West: Rome, Germany, France, and the Creation of Europe in the Tenth Century

Thank you for purchasing my Lemon Recipe, Ingelheim!

Meeting the Country Folks at Milford, Texas

Their slogan is "A Town of a about 700 Friendly People and 3 or 4 Grouches"
Downtown Milford, Texas (this photo was taken about 2010 - source wikipedia)

A former bank building now serving as an Antique Shop in downtown Milford, Texas.
The story about Milford is all about the people. What do they do in Milford?
The people of Milford have big generous hearts and are all about helping each other.
For example when you read what is happening at the Rockett Ranch Cafe and Music Hall you will see they are busy with one charity after another that help local Texans. Visit their Facebook page and read about who they help - it will touch your heart.
Another group of people are focusing their charity work on helping children. See the photograph of these 9 beautiful women and how they are helping their community.
They are called Milford Titus Women. They refer to "Titus 2:3-5" for their name.

Just couldn't leave Milford without going to a farm and I found a wonderful farm I wish I could visit for real not just online. Take a look at his interesting chickens and Natural Wild Raw Honey ...visit Lee Raptor Farm in Milford Texas.
To whoever bought my Lemon Recipe in Milford, I thank you!

Follow the recipes to a Turkey Testicle Festival in Illinois

Three of my recipes have traveled to Huntley, IL.
I was anxious to find out what would interesting to learn about Huntley.
I was in for a big surpise. The highlight of our visit to Huntley, IL is going to the yearly Turkey Testicle Festival. Wednesday 27 November 2013

You really do have to see it to believe it! See how turkey testicles are cooked and whether people like them or not. Have you eaten turkey testicles?

Huntley is known as The Village of Huntley with an estimated village population to be about 22,923 as of the 2008 Census. Chicago, IL is 51 miles away from Huntley.
The Village of Huntley was founded in 1851 by Thomas Stillwell Huntley -- Read the Huntley History
Huntley is also included within the scope of the Golden Corridor. It is coined as such since the corridor generates a "gold" mine of economic profit for communities in the area.
I am so glad we followed these recipes to Huntley, IL
