In Honor of

National Cheese Lover Day

January 20

 

Do you love cheese -- all kinds of cheese? Spectacular! Soon it will be National Cheese Lover's Day!

Use the day to serve, savor, and enjoy any of the hundreds of varieties of cheese. Depending upon what article you read, there are between 900 to 1,400 kinds of cheese. Having a cheese tasting party with friends will make this a truly memorable day. Set out a tray with several varieties of your favorite cheese and don't forget the wine. Wine goes great with cheese.

 

How to Make an Easy Cheese Tray

 

Some Cheesy Trivia:

  • Cheese is more flavorful at room temperature.
     
  • Americans consume over 31 pounds of cheese per year. But that's nothing compared to the French who eat over 50 pounds of cheese per year.
     
  • Historical records vary as to when cheese was first made. It was somewhere between 7,500 and 8,000 B.C. Records suggest it may have first been discovered by accident in Poland or Arabia.
     
  • The world's largest cheese was put on display on this day in 1964 at the New York World's Fair. It weighed over 34,000 pounds.

 

Eating cheese makes you feel gouda. So, don't be bleu. Eat some cheese on National Cheese Lover Day.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK

We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

 So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
