Major. . .

Fidel Castro resigned as president of Cuba. This is MAJOR. I can remember hearing my dad talk about how Cuba was just a regular island country that people liked to go visit and get some cigars and stuff. Then suddenly it was off limits to everybody. Even the foreigners there. There was a seminary professor at Southwestern Seminary (his last name was Fite) and he was a missionary in Cuba when Castro took over. Castro's people put Fite in prison for 7 years. Incredible.
Anyway, hopefully Cuba will be a better place now, or at least soon.

In other, completely different, news, I've become a MAJOR fan of Dickey's Barbecue. I served it last night - and will serve it again tonight. (Barbecue always does well as leftovers.)

Having company is never good on the waistline. I mean, the company always makes me eat the dessert. And I have to have seconds on the potato salad and brisket. (What's a hostess to do? - but to show her guests that they can eat more!)
