A family was on holiday in Australia for a week and a half when husband, wife and their 15 year old son decided to go scuba diving. The husband is in the navy and has had some scuba experience.  His son wanted a picture of his mom and dad in all their gear so he got the under water camera ready to go. When it came to taking the picture the dad realized that the son looked like he was panicking as he took it and gave the ‘OK’ hand sign to see if he was all right.
The son took the picture and swam to the surface and back to the boat as quick as he could so the mom and dad followed to see if he was OK.  When they got back to him he was scrambling onto the boat and absolutely panicking. When the parents asked why, he said ‘there was a shark behind you.’ The dad thought he was joking but the skipper of the boat said it was true but they wouldn’t believe him.
As soon as they got back to the hotel they loaded the picture onto there laptop and that was what they saw.
P.S.I saw this on another blog and couldn't resist reposting. I'm not quite sure if this is ethical to post to my blog, even though I did credit it on the bottom.  Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Peaches and Cream


One of my new favorite recipes of the summer, and oh so simple.



Peaches and Cream

3-4 peaches (very ripe)

1 cup cream cheese

2-3 TB honey

1-2 tsp vanilla

1-2 TB brown sugar

dash of cinnamon

dash of nutmeg

1/2 cup of white sugar

1.5 cups of walnuts


Soften the cream cheese in the microwave and then mix in the brown sugar, vanilla, and spices.

Next, saute the walnuts with white sugar and butter

Pit the peaches, and place face down on the grill for about 10 minutes or until they have nice grill marks on them. Next turn the peaches over and put a large dollop of the cream cheese mixture in each pit opening and leave on the grill until the cream cheese is warmed. After the peaches are done, drizzle each liberally with honey, and then sprinkle plenty of the sautéed walnuts on top.
