3 Minute fudge

Hi Linda, I'm sorry the fudge didn't set. It probably did not cook long enough. I am not a big fan of the microwave so I do it in the non-stick saucepan. You could try taking you fudge and putting it back in a no-stick saucepan with a teaspoon of butter (medium heat). Stir constantly until the mixture starts coming away from bottom and sides of the saucepan as you do in the recipe for Brigadeiro, the Brazilian bonbon. Anything cooked with condensed milk needs to be well cooked to set properly. I do hope this recommendation solves your problem.

Free Activity Calendar for Seniors

Hi Leigh-Ann, we did the same; font 10 for the calendar but then we printed it in A3 form and placed one copy in each seniors' bedroom. This way it made it easier for them to read and inform their relatives and friends when visiting.

Weather Station Activities for Seniors

You are quite right Myra. Birds also sense the drop in barometric pressure that occur before a storm and take flight. Excellent idea.
