Image Did you know . . . ?
By Brenda Essig aka Zanymuse on August 14, 2011

The Playpen of Graphics is growing. We have an ever expanding database of images that are contributed by members like you. Those images are free for anyone to use and are beginning to be found by search engines. As more people are brought to cubits as the result of a search, over all traffic will increase. It is my hope and dream that those visitors will look around and decide to join my cubit and yours and that some will start new cubits as well. This is true for all cubits. Those google searches in your reports are a sign that we are moving in the right direction and that is exciting.

My day starts with the puzzle and usually ends there as I go to read the comments for that day. Love it Brnda and thank you so much for keeping it going....

Zany,
I am hooked on your puzzles, and do them nearly every day. Thanks to you, there are many skill levels, so no one has to be defeated before they begin, or bored by the simplicity.

I love the choices and the variety of subject matter.

Another plus, is the people I've had the privilege to meet, which means much to me-but that's a story for another time. ...

Thanks to the contributors of the amazingly diverse photos! Seems to be a little bit of every subject matter, assuring any visitor of a puzzle that will appeal to them.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Well He is a real cutie! Smiling Nancy, I got here from the article on the homepage. I wouldn't mind trying a puzzle, but the computer has been giving me migraines and I'm very behind on my storm cleanup. Sad No damage here, just bringing back out everything that was put away and cleaning up the debris and tying fallen plants back up. When I'm feeling better, I surely will. Smiling

Oh, I see. I asked about the Newsletter because I see the Playen is right behind Mid Atlantic Musings in posts.

("Right behind" may be an exaggeration. The numbers are Mid Atlantic Musings - 715 posts / Playpen of Graphics - 375 posts!)

No Nancy, I haven't had a chance to see the Newsletter yet. Good grief, now that I think about it I still haven't seen the past three newsletters. *Blush*

Stormy, I hope you didn't get a whole lot of storm damage. I know from personal experience how much hard work is involved in clean-up when trees are uprooted! We had 5 huge pines uprooted several years ago, 4 in the field and one that landed on the porch roof. It took us several weeks and several months of aches and pains to get it all cleaned up!

No Thank goodness Zany. I dodged that bullet this time, probably because I lost two in the spring storms. Gosh, 5 at once is a real bear. Blinking All in all it could have been a lot worse than it was so I am very grateful that it's just nuisance clean up. It did shake about 100 peaches lose for me, so that will be a delightful treat!

Hilarious! Oh you are so evil lady. Hilarious! I'm eating 3 & 4 a day now trying not to give into those heavenly temptations Lovey dubby , but I know that I will succumb now with this quantity.

To that list I would add Ladygardener's yummie peach almond pound cake the recipe that can be found in her Great Lakes Living cubit.

Is this the one. Stormy? "Almond" is not in the name, but there's almond extract in it, so I'm thinking it's the one you mean.


White Peach Pound Cake

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
2 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups diced fresh white peaches, don't peal
confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in extracts.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the batter alternately with sour cream.
Fold in the peaches.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan.
Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Dust with confectioner's sugar if desired.

Yep, That's the one!! When I made it for a party, I made an almond flavored glaze for it and topped it with toasted sliced almonds. There wasn't a crumb left. Zany, now you're really trying to get me in trouble. Blinking

Okay, one question. What happens to the peel after it's baked? Are they noticeable? Chewy? Soft?
