Aah the Holidays! There's so much to do in getting ready for Christmas. The shopping, the parties, the planning, putting up the tree, getting the outside display ready, the relatives and this is beginning to read like the story line of the movie, Christmas Vacation. A holiday classic?  Anyway, one of my favorite scenes (and I have several favorite scenes from the movie) is near the end of the movie. It's when Clark and family find out the Christmas "bonus" from Clark's employer is a year enrollment in the jelly of the month club. Clark goes wacko  and grabs a cup and submerges the cup into the big bowl of EGG NOG. Not once, but twice. This seems to relax him

Well, if you want to to know a bit more about this seasonal drink read on.

While culinary experts dispute exactly when egg nog came to be. it is believed to be an early mid-evil drink from England. It was called "posset" a warm,  milky ale-like drink. Monks added eggs and figs to it.

Egg nog is one of the treats I enjoy during this season. There are others, but that is for another blog. I actually prefer it "straight". However,if I do add a bit of alcohol to it a bit of Jack Daniels or Crown Royal is good. I'm not big on rum, so I'll leave it you you.

Normally, you will find egg nog sold by the quart in the grocery store's dairy section. And, you can get regular stuff or "light".

Hope this helps you get through the season!

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
