Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
This poem is so beautiful and moving that I can't read it aloud without bawling, over and over again.
The funniest thing about owning this can, is that despite it being moved from an apartment through three houses, I don't ever remember using it! As a young housewife, I must have figured that every well equipped kitchen had cayenne pepper on hand. My sister suggested that if I sprinkled some of this pepper on the counter, the "granules" just might walk away!!! Although I don't ever plan to use this can of pepper at this late date, I do want to keep it in my cabinet for fun. Let's see how old spice can get!

The kids told me an interesting "factoid"-that the Superbowl is the second biggest Food occasion with Thanksgiving being the first. I'm not sure if that's true, but like most people, special foods are a big part of our Superbowl celebration!
