|"Not a Second Time" is a song by
John Lennon (credited to
Lennon/McCartney) performed by
The Beatles on their second United Kingdom album,
With the Beatles. Lennon said he was "trying to write a
Smokey Robinson or something at the time."
This song inspired a musical analysis from William Mann of The Times, citing the "Aeolian cadence" (Aeolian harmony) of Lennon's vocals as the song draws to a close, and noting that the same chord progression appears at the end of Mahler's "Song of the Earth". Lennon, years later, remarked: "To this day, I have no idea what [Aeolian cadences] are. They sound like exotic birds." The actual meaning of the term "Aeolian cadence" is when a major key song resolves on the VI chord, which is the tonic chord of the relative minor key. The term derives from the fact that the Aeolian mode is rooted on the sixth step of the major scale.

From My Friend, Evelyn Dudzinski Griffis (Mars Hill HS, PA - '75) of NY - 05/06/13 - "Signature Mini Pie":
QUICK DINNER -- Create Your Own Signature Mini Pie (and an easy way to get rid of leftovers!)
Signature Mini Pie
Mix 1/2 cup of Bisquick, 1/2 Cup of Milk, and 2 eggs together for a base. (put about 1 tablespoon in each muffin cup)
Top with about 1/4 cup of any "fillings" you want. - Cheeseburger, Pizza, BLT, Chicken and Veggies, etc.... You can mix it up in the pan (any meat should already be cooked)
Then top with one more tablespoon of the "Bisquick Mixture" - and bake at 375 for 25-30. It's a great way to get rid of your leftovers! These can also be frozen! Just pop them into the microwave for a quick meal on the go!
Recipe from Betty Crocker
GREAT IDEA! Thanks, Evelyn!
From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC (temporarily of MA) - 05/06/13 - "Perfect Couple Pie":
Perfect Couple Pie (Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Pie)
For the pie:
1 chocolate graham cracker crust
1 cup peanut butter
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
1 tub (12 ounces) Cool Whip, divided
1 jar (11.75 ounces) hot fudge topping, divided
½ cup sugar
For the topping:
2 tablespoons hot fudge
2 tablespoons peanut butter
• In large bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar until creamy. Fold in 3 cups Cool Whip. Spoon mixture into crust and smooth to edges.
• Remove 2 tablespoons hot fudge from jar and reserve in zip-loc plastic baggie for later. Heat remaining hot fudge according to package directions. Spread on top of peanut butter layer. Refrigerate pie until serving time.
• At serving time, carefully spread remaining Cool Whip on top of pie.
• Knead hot fudge in baggie with hands; cut tiny hole in corner of baggie and pipe over pie. Repeat with 2 tablespoons peanut butter and pipe on pie in opposite direction.
• Serve. If that isn’t making love to your taste buds, I don’t know what is.
WOW! I think I just passed out from a sugar overload just by looking at the picture! Thanks, Webby!
From My Friend, Alice, of NV - 05/06/13 - "Amish Broccoli Salad":
Amish Broccoli Salad
1 head broccoli, chopped
1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound bacon, fried and crumbled
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Combine the chopped broccoli and cauliflower in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and salt to make a creamy dressing. Add the dressing to the broccoli–cauliflower mix, stirring to evenly coat the vegetables. Stir in the bacon and the cheese, reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top of the salad just before serving.
PRETTY! Thanks, Alice!

- "Crock Pot Bacon Cheese Potatoes":
Crock Pot Bacon Cheese Potatoes
1/4 pound bacon, diced – I bake it first in the oven so that it is “done” and browned then I dice it and place in the crock pot.
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced (or if you use a new potato or Yukon gold then halve)
1/2 pound cheddar cheese, thinly sliced (shredded is fine)
salt and pepper
green onions (optional)
Line crock pot with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished – this will help to not stick and to steam the potatoes – also to keep them from getting discolored or mushy.
Layer half each of the bacon, onions and potatoes in the crock pot.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with (real) butter.
Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter.
Cover with remaining foil.
Cover and cook on low for up to 6 hours (check at 4 hours – depending on your crock pot).
Add cheese for the last 20 – 30 minutes and enjoy!
