Back From Avalon And Off To Catal At Downtown Disney
A private note.... Paul lost his Mom in 1990.... Sue lost her Mom in 1999. We so often remember our Mom's (Georgia and Rita) and laugh about the great times we had together. These wonderful ladies had noting in common but us. They became good friends and made our lives wonderful. Such great people! We miss them every day but especially on Mother's Day. Thank you for being Mom!

Did You Know? - Polenta is coarsely or finely ground yellow or white cornmeal boiled with water or stock into a porridge and eaten directly or baked, fried or grilled. The term may refer either to the ingredient or a dish made with it.
Polenta is an Italian word, derived from the Latin for hulled and crushed grain, especially barley-meal. Maize was not cultivated in Europe until the early 16th century. It comes from the same base as "pollen".
