Doodle Soup Days
What is Doodle Soup? A really weird recipe for a type of chicken soup. How weird? How about vinegar, cayenne pepper, crackers and of course chicken.

And why are we celebrating it? Beats me!

But Bradford Tennessee, the home town of Doodle Soup, gets all worked up over the next couple of days with BBQs, art shows, flea markets among other celebrations.

 And for those of you interested here is the official Doodle Soup recipe.

With the sighting of the cresent moon last night, Mulsims around the world began the observance of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and it is during this month that Muslims observe the Fast of Ramadan. Lasting for the entire month, Muslims fast during the daylight hours and in the evening eat small meals and visit with friends and family.

Ramadan is also a time when Muslims concentrate on their faith and spend less time on the concerns of their everyday lives. It is a time of worship and contemplation and a time to strengthen family and community ties.

According to the Islamic Society of North America the first day of fasting for Ramadan 2007 is expected to be September 13th (depending on where you live).
