The Cougher....I Mean The Clapper: A Birthday Gift from My Daughter, Sarah

My birthday was Friday and my family took me to dinner at Mt. Fugi, a Japanese Hibachi restaurant very beautiful ( and very expensive) located in Rockland County, NY. We had a great dinner, a lot of laughs, and I got some great birthday gifts. Among those gifts was " The Clapper", a device made famous by countless late-nite commercials. You know, " Clap On, Clap Off...The Clapper".

Now I wont bore you with the rationale as to why my daughter ( with the help of my boyfriend) decided to buy this for my birthday. Suffice it to say I was under scrutiny by my daughter to get it set up and operational ASAP.

It was actually fairly easy to set up and worked just like the commercials demonstrated. Two hard claps and the lights turn on, two hard claps and it turns off.

Easy and simple.

Now, this should be the end of the story, but we all know that my stories are never simple. Daryl, my boyfriend has the most annoying chronic cough, and after setting this up in the living room, he happened to cough twice...

Yep, you know what comes next! My lights proceeded to turn off! We laughed but the real funny part was when I called Sarah in from her room to see. A coughing match ensued between Daryl and Sarah with the turning on/off of the lights being the coveted prize!

Lol! So now, I not only have a Clapper, I have a Cougher! I'd like to see that in the next commercial!

I didn't even realize that the clapper was still made. I lose my keys all the time so I think I'll have to get one.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
