“Twas The Month After Christmas”

By  Mock Webware | 

‘Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. The cookies I’d nibbled, the eggnog I’d taste All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

Cinco De Mayo Recipes

By  Mock Webware | 

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5.
