Club Morono Lemon-Carrot Cake

The essential ingredients of this Morono Cake are moldy lemon, wilted carrot and sour milk. Add peanuts. Don't bother cooking. I wouldn't recommend eating it. Such a cake is more for show. Sometimes you can't have your cake and eat it too.

helping hand

Platitudes come in handy when one seeks a helping hand after the factory shut down and hired hands were handed job termination slips. Let's have a little hand for the self that likes respect and whatever other selves might be floating around in handy-land. Peter Stumps auditioned to be a singer in a local bar, but his hands trembled too much. Someone handed me a copy of WC Handy's St. Louis Blues, going to fortune-telling gypsy, not liking to see down-going evening sun. The song provided a little much needed inspiration.
