Happy 100th Birthday, Morton Salt Girl, she doesn't look a day over 8!

"When it rains it pours", that saying has been popular for well over 100 years from the Morton Salt company. Another milestone is that in 2014 it's a Happy 100th Birthday to Morton Salt Girl!  
Morton Salt was established in Chicago in 1848 by Joy Morton who also founded the Morton Arboretum. His love for trees and the environment was passed down to him by his father, J. Sterling Morton, the founder of Arbor Day. 

Morton has assist in the fight to end iodine deficiency worldwide with Morton Iodized Salt, beginning in 1924.

In 1914 the Morton Salt Girl appeared on the Morton Salt package.


Morton has a new product line for health and beauty with Epsom Salt products. Use Morton Epsom Salt for body, foot, and facials.


Morton Salt is great for making salt dough, pita crisps, recipes, foods, and how about that warm salt water rinse the dentist recommends after a over due cleaning.


Look for culinary salts, water softening salts, pool salts, and deicing salts too.


Thanks to Mom Select for letting me help celebrate her birthday!

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful.

You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
