On this day in history: January 8, 1991 - Guitarist Steve Clark from Def Leppard found dead from a drug and alcohol overdose. He was 31.

Born on this day in history: January 8, 1935 - Elvis Presley (1935–77) Born in Tupelo, MS, pop singer Elvis Presley caused a national sensation on Ed Sullivan's Talk of the Town in 1956 because of his ‘scandalous’ pelvic gyrations. That same year, he released his first million-selling single, ‘Heartbreak Hotel,’ and starred in the first of 33 films. After 1974, Presley became drug-dependent, spending his last years living reclusively at his Memphis home, Graceland.

Scripture of the Day: "Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." - Joshua 1:8

RAIN! The rain has returned. Yesterday was beautiful, sunny, and warm. Today is windy, cold, and wet. Hopefully, this storm will soon pass. There are still many in this area without power, and the streams, creeks, and rivers are dangerously high.

For dinner last evening, I made grilled pork loin chops and a red potato, mushroom, red bell pepper, and onion casserole. I seasoned three very thick pork loin chops with Tony Chachere's More Spice Seasoning, ground black pepper, and ground sage. I grilled them on our indoor grill until the outside was charred and crispy. The inside was moist and juicy. We used Tony Chachere's Cajun Power Garlic Sauce as a dipping sauce for the pork. It was a delightful meal.
