Helloooo it's meeeee Pam!
It's time for another Gone-ta-pott newsletter!
Well Gone-ta-pott newsletter gang, the weather is hot and just perfect for grilling out! Stephen and I have been doing a lot of that lately. We love anything and everything cooked on the grill and the more BBQ sauce the better! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Stephen and I bought ourselves a new gas grill a couple of months ago and we have been in hog heaven. I say hog heaven because we have cooked enough pork on that thing to turn into one. hahahaha! Hummm.... that give's me a great idea. I think the theme of this months newsletter is going to be "Grilling." So hold on to ya tongs and get ready for some great bbq fun ok. Oh... we will still have a load of other subject matters in our newsletter as well so those of you who don't like to grill..... have no fear...... gone-ta-potts newsletter will have many other Internet subjects to keep you entertained. (snicker~)
What's new on the Home Front
Well...... here in our newsletter we like to tell you a little bit about our lives so we can all feel like family. Most of our readers ask us to share a little bit of ourselves so this is the part where we do a few lines of that. Ha ha ha ha ! Today Stephen and I had the day off together and we spent it on the beach in Destin Florida. We have a favorite eatin' place right on the water so we can watch all the sail boats go by and watch all the fishing boats return with their catch. It's great fun and every chance that we can get to go there, we do. The name of the place is the "Lucky Snapper." Have you ever heard of it? If your ever there just look around and you may just see us stuffing our face with the great food that they serve there. When we finish eating we like to walk the Harbor Docks and see the men tossing the fish off of the boats. It's great fun! Although I have to say that the fishieee smell is not that great. (snicker~)
This week we have the truck in the shop and we are using a rental car. I had the pleasure of getting rammed up the back end the other day while I was stopped for a school bus. Unfortunately the person behind me didn't see the school bus and slammed into me. What fun that was-
Stephen & I are both working our butts off still. He works full time and I have finally dropped down to part time at the Resort where I work. I will now have the needed time to manage our little website here. It takes many hours a week to keep it all up-to-date and the more popular it gets.... the more time I need to manage it. I really do love doing it. We still have all 7 cats and we still love all 7 of them to piecesss. They bring so much laughter to our lives till you just wouldn't believe it. Only animal lovers will understand I'm sure. hahahaha!
If you guys want to read more of what we have to say, then keep check on our blogger. When we have some extra time we like to write a bit in it as well. Now.... once you finish our newsletter please feel free to write a few lines in our "GuestBook" that is located at the bottom of this page ok. Were all Internet friendly here so share with us as well.
Keep those letter coming in friends. We love it. Enjoy our newsletter!

Content IS King!
By Bruce Riddell | Published 01/20/2006 | Web Traffic , Writing | Unrated
There are literally thousands of website owners who use a very asimple technique to generate targeted visitors to their web sites without paying a dime in advertising! Yes, that statement sounds unbelieveable but it is true!
What is their method?
They create highly focused articles that they allow other people publish in their ezines (online magazines and email newsletters) or post on their websites. This method is very powerful! You may be asking yourself about now, "Why would an ezine publisher or website owner want to publish my articles for their subscribers?"
The answer is simple: Content!
There are over a 100,000 ezines and newsletters covering everything from A to Z. Many of them need tightly focused content and they don't have the time or inclination to produce it for themselves. You can get termendous exposure and traffic to your web site by providing valuable, content-rich articles in exchange for a "about the author" box and a link back to your website (sometimes called a "resource box")
The following represent only a few of the enormous benefitsof writing and distributing simple articles online:
1) Attain "Expert" Status
In the eyes of virtually everyone who reads your articles you rank as the "expert" on the subject.
2) Pre-sell Your Website Visitors
If your article appeals to a niche audience hungry for more information on a very focused subject, you actually can pre-sell them better than any sales pitch
3) Your Traffic Will Last Longer
The Internet changes very quickly and webmasters are usually very slow to remove content from their sites. Once you get an article posted on another person's website you have an excellent chance of that article staying there for weeks, months, even years.
4) Increase The Number Of Links To Your Web Site
In-bound links help in searchengine positioning because they increase "LinkPopularity."
5) Helps You Build a Huge "Opt-In" Email List
You can use articles to build up a huge list of subscribersby simply compiling several articles into an email course and delivering them at preset intervals. This technique also allows you to capture their name and email adress so you can send them articles and other special offers in the future (with their permission of course).
So if you operate a website selling virtually any type ofproduct or service (whether your own or as an affiliate), publishing and promoting these products with informational articles should rank high on your list of traffic generation strategies.
No other method of generating targeted traffic to you web site provides you with the quality and quantity of traffic that providing free article content does.
The author, Bruce Riddell has a Free Article Directory located at http://www.authorarticles.com where you can get free content for your web site, newsletter or ezine. If you have original articles you can also submit them at this site. Ghost Writers Wanted! Article Source: http://ArticlesReprint.com

Food Trivia Question
The product we know today came into being in 1902, but it had existed in similar forms for generations. During the Christmas season of 1902,packaging became an important factor. It was designed with a string attached to it so it could be hung as a Christmas tree ornament. In total, there have been 37 different varieties, currently there are 22. More than 40 million packages of these are sold each year, and they are exported to 17 countries. They are turned out at the rate of 12,000 per minute, and nearly 6,000 miles of string are used on the packages. Poet-philosopher Christopher Morley wrote a poem named for them.
What are they? Answer at the end of this newsletter.

Hey! I thought this Newsletter was going to have something in it about Grilling & BBQ! Yep it sure is....... grilling tips right here so hang on to your bbq sauce!
First --- Lets talk about what Grilling is and what BBQ'ing is.
Most people don't realize there is a difference but there is.
is cooking fast, at a high temperature
any cut of meat or poultry, even vegetables! Grilling is when you place your meat or poultry etc. on the cooking surface of a grill (like a gas-powered grill) and cook away! Sometimes thin sauces or marinades are applied to the food before or during the cooking process to keep the meat moist because grilling fast at a high heat tends to dry out the meat if you don't. Many people use BBQ sauce for grilling and I think this is why everyone gets so confused about what the difference is between grilling and BBQ.
Grilling is also know as DIRECT COOKING - this cooking method involves cooking your food directly over the heat source. Recommended for food that requires short cooking times or to sear and lock in the juices before cooking food indirectly.
is slow cooking for several hours
any cuts of meat or poultry over say... wood coals....but the meat is not placed right directly over the coals like in grilling. When BBQing, there is usually a can of water somewhere in the grill to keep a constant humidity level in the cooking area. Dry rubs made of various herbs and spices are often applied to the meat or mustard- or tomato-based sauces (depending on where you live). However, many BBQers forgo the rubs and sauces and let the woodsmoke flavor the food. It is not unusual to BBQ meat or poultry for several hours (or even all night!). You can BBQ a really bad cut of meat and it usually results in a tender, delicious treat that practically falls apart as you eat it. BBQ is also know as INDIRECT COOKING - When food is cooked away from the direct heat source with the lid closed. This method works well for delicate foods as well as foods that require longer cooking times.
BBQ'ing is what's done when you want your company to stay all day and Grilling is what's done when you want your company to eat and go! ~Snickerrrr~
For Gas Grills
If using a Gas Grill- Preheat the grill for at least 10 minutes on high. This way it will have time to burn off any bugs or creepy crawlers that might be hiding on the under side. This will also help to kill any lurking germs.
- Pre-Heating grids -- By pre-heating the cooking grids, they will sear the meat to give it nice grill marks, but more importantly, it will keep the meat from sticking to the cooking grate...
- Scrub grill grates with a wire brush or spatula before and after cooking. You want to do this anyway so food doesn't stick.
- OIL-- Oil your grids. - To prevent food from sticking to the cooking grid or warming racks you can spray or brush on oil before lighting or spray the food with a mist of oil before placing it on the grid. Experiment and see which method works best for you..
- Did you know that using a grill fork is not so good....The piercing of the food lets all the precious juices out of the meat that you need to keep in the meat. Use long-handled tongs or a spatula to turn the food instead.
- Keep a can of water in the grill when cooking to keep moisture in.
- The first thing most people do when they have a flair up is grab the water and slosh it on. The best thing to do is just move the meat away from where the flair up is. Its the grease from the meat that is causing the big problem so relocating it somewhere else on the grill usually solves your problem. If you have a grill cover, close it to help cut off the oxygen supply to the flame.
- Close grill cover for even cooking and keep closed as much as possible. I know this is hard to do because part of the fun of grilling is watching the meat smoke and cook. Snickerrrrr~
We love to Grill and BBQ every chance we get, all throughout the year!
Its the best way that I know of to get a big gang of people together and also the best way to keep them out of your house! ~Snickerrrrr~
It doesn't matter which way you pick to cook your food. Gas grill and charcoal both will make a delicious meal.
- Before grilling over charcoal, allow the coals to form a thin white ash appearance. Grate should be positioned 3-5" above the coals.
- Direct Method: Cook food directly over the coals. Use this method for thinner pieces of meat, poultry or fish.
- OIL-- Oil your grids. - To prevent food from sticking to the cooking grid or warming racks you can spray or brush on oil before lighting or spray the food with a mist of oil before placing it on the grid. Experiment and see which method works best for you.
- Keep a can of water in the grill to keep the moisture in.
Batman the cat is the silliest cat that we have and also the most curious. He has shiny jet black fur and yellow eyes. He is always wanting to play and always begging's us all the time to play with him. One day while I was painting my finger nails Batman came over to me begging once again for game of play. He swatted at me with a loud meow and when he did the fingernail polish popped right out of my hand and hit on the floor. Immediately I jumped to the floor to pick it up but since Batman thought it was another fast game of play he decided to race me for the bottle. When he did he grabbed up the bottle in his teeth then quickly slung it down because of the strong smell of the fingernail polish. Buy this time it was toooo lateeee. Batman now looked like he had got into my lipstick instead because he had dark pink nailpolish circled all around his mouth. The smell of the polish on his mouth was so strong until he kept leaping and jumping all over the place and each time he did a turn he quickly and looked at me, cocking his head sideways with his beautiful lipstick on. It was a sight to see and I laughed so hard until my sides hurt. Snicker~

ANSWER TO FOOD TRIVIA QUESTION
"Animal crackers, and cocoa to drink,
That is the finest of suppers, I think.
When I'm grown up and can have what I please,
I think I shall always insist upon these." by Christopher Morley
In 1902 the Nation Biscuit Company's Animal Biscuits assumed the legal
trademark name of BARNUM'S ANIMALS. They designed the colorful five-cent
box that looked like a circus wagon cage, and attached a string so the
box could be hung from the Christmas tree.
In total there have been 37 different animals represented since 1902.
The current lineup is tiger, cougar, camel, rhinoceros, kangaroo,
hippopotamus, bison, lion, hyena, zebra, elephant, sheep, bear, gorilla,
monkey, seal and giraffe.
