Count Your Blessings for the Trees

I am blessed to live amongst a grove of oak trees. I want to start Blue Spruce Christmas trees. I know it would take a few years for trees to reach maturity, why not start now?

Recipe of the Day from the Antique American Cookbooks Home Cookery Ladies' Indispensable Companion:

French Bologna Sausages

Chop fine 4 pounds of lean beef, into which put 1 pound of chopped suet, the same quantity of lean chopped ham; season with allspice, bay salt, pepper, and saltpetre, and a little garlic, with a pinch or two of bay leaves pounded. Mix the whole well together, and tie up in skins the size of a wrist. Dry in the same manner as tongues or smoked beef, and eat without boiling. 

Christmas trivia: Bayonets flashing, music crashing, sabres clinking, and soldier winking, the setting of this song is in a toy shop. Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.
