"I thought it was pepper" Lady!

Spaghetti Cupcakes

"They’re white chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting (the spaghetti) and Ferrero Rocher chocolates covered in strawberry preserves. Gooey and yummy!"
Idea came from a book called "Hello, Cupcake!" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson.

Did You Know.......

Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn’t added until 5 years later.

Firefighters called for a rescue from a tree

Firefighters were called out to rescue an iguana from a 45ft tree, which turned out to be nothing more than a green branch.
Residents who thought they saw a reptile moving among the leaves called the RSPCA, who in turn contacted the fire brigade.
A fireman scaled the tree on an aerial platform and only realized that the animal in danger was in fact just a green branch when he was 25ft up in the air.

Colin Horwood, animal rescue advisor for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: "The branch bore a striking resemblance to an iguana when seen from the ground. I have never seen anything like it.
"We take all animal rescues seriously but in this case it was a good intent false alarm."The sighting was more credible because the RSPCA had rescued another iguana in the same area of Cove, near Farnborough, the week before
