Brunch Gone Bananas

 

Martha White®

Nashville, TN – Big, beautiful bunches of perfectly ripe bananas are almost irresistible. Available year-round, you can always count on bananas to be there for you – to slice over cereal, for snacks, fruit salads and an amazing variety of recipes, from main dishes to delectable desserts. This tropical fruit is one of the most popular fruits in the United States, but was virtually unknown in this country until the 1800s.

Over the years, a remarkable assortment of banana recipes have been created like banana pudding, banana cream pie and the revered, but unassuming, banana bread. In fact, the addition of bananas to bread and cake recipes is almost magic, contributing a creamy sweet flavor and moist delicious texture.

Mind your own house first, Sen. Beavers

 
State Senator Mae Beavers

State Senator Mae Beavers

Just like the U.S. government, Tennessee government has three branches. Generally, states have the same system. It’s pretty neat. It generally works.

But, some tea drinkers in the Tennessee General Assembly want to change that. They don’t seem to be happy with a system that separates power and function among three branches of government. They are so hyped up on their own brand of caffeine-laced tea that they think they should control all of state government.

They have already made rumblings that they want to control how the State Attorney General and other state officers are selected. Now, they want a hand in the review and disciplinary process for judges in the state as well. «Read the rest of this article»

Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Growing up in El Salvador, Spc. Francisco Javier Fuentes’s days were filled up a few hours of school and many more working the fields. As he harvested the corn and fruits or took the crops to sell in the city, Fuentes remembers seeing the Salvadoran armed forces walking the streets and keeping the country safer.

He followed the boot steps of the cammo-clad soldiers of his childhood, years later in the U.S. Army.

After more than five years wearing the uniform, Fuentes took an oath and became a U.S. citizen at the Joint Sustainment Command – Afghanistan Naturalization Ceremony, September 28th.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of October 2nd

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The news out of Europe was better. Leaders expressed a greater resolve to overcome the region’s difficulties and keep the euro intact. Germany’s parliament approved (by a wide margin) an expansion of the European Financial Stability Facility. However, the strains remain. There is a long and bumpy path ahead and the markets are expected to react to the news day by day.

U.S. economic data were mixed, but generally better than anticipated. The government’s third estimate of second quarter GDP growth was revised higher, to a 1.3% annual rate vs. +1.0% in the second estimate. The second quarter is pretty much ancient history at this point, but consumer spending and business fixed investment were both revised higher. The advance report on durable goods orders showed a pickup in shipments of nondefense capital goods ex-aircraft in August – suggesting that business fixed investment will post a strong gain in 3Q11 (not surprising, as corporate profits are a major driver of capital spending, and profits were at a record high in 2Q11). Consumer confidence remained depressed in September (after sinking in August), with continued pessimism on jobs. Weekly jobless claims fell unexpectedly in the latest week, but seasonal adjustment makes the figures unreliable. «Read the rest of this article»
