Spark Messenger ...
As many of you know, Yahoo Messenger is no longer the friendly messenger we have used for many years. There's lots of changes and it's not so user friendly now.
We have been invited to use Spark, which has lots of the features of the old Yahoo. Lots of us have already downloaded this program and you are welcome to do it too
(if you haven't). Just click on this link - ctdhosting.com/downloads/spark_2_7_7.exe and when asked for the server, type this - messenger.ctdhosting.com and you
should be ready to go. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Sweett_sassyblues_4u.

Cooking with JHF ...
Each week a recipe will be featured in our newsletter. If you have a favorite you would like to share with your fellow league members, please email
firstname.lastname@example.org and your recipe will be featured.
This week's feature recipe is -
- Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie -
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 8-ounce cans refrigerated crescent rolls
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup honey
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9x13-inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a
9x13-inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Stir
together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon and butter. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.
Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle
with honey. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 squares. Enjoy!

On The Lighter Side with JHF ...
A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip
out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.
The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."
The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona and the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas, we
promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for
myself." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom and leaves the cowboy to enjoy his beers.
The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round,
the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."
The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.
"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."
"Hasn't affected my brothers though." he added.

Something to Think About ...
10 Mistakes People Make That You Have to Forgive Them For (but never forget) -
- Sometimes people don't see an issue with their actions. They don't have the same integrity as you.
- Some people will never change or apologize.
- It cost $0.00 to treat someone with respect, yet some people still can't afford it.
- People will hurt you and then act like you hurt them.
- When people act like they don't care, they may just be putting up walls to protect themselves.
- Some people look for the bad in you because they are blind to the problems within themselves.
- The truth is always better than a lie but some people still can't be honest.
- Some people thrive off of drama and negativity. It's not you, it's them.
- Some people don't like you because they don't even like themselves.
- Sometimes you have to remember that everyone wasn't raised like you.

From Our Members ...
Blonde Pilot - compliments of Sweett_sassyblues_4u
A blonde pilot decided she wanted to learn how to fly a helicopter.
She went to the airport, but the only one available was a solo-helicopter. The instructor figured he could let her go up alone since she was already a
pilot for small planes and he could instruct her by radio.
So up the blonde went. She reached 1,000 feet and everything was going smoothly. She reached 2,000 feet. The blonde and the instructor kept
talking via radio. Everything was running smoothly. At 3,000 feet the helicopter suddenly came down quickly! It skimmed the top of some trees and
crash landed in the woods. The instructor jumped into his jeep and rushed out to see if the blonde was okay. As he reached the edge of the woods,
the blonde was walking out.
"What happened?" the instructor asked. "All was going so well until you reached 3,000 feet. What happened then?"
"Well," began the blonde, "I got cold. So I turned off the ceiling fan."
