EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) – This week on East Texas Kitchen Pickin’, Jeff Awtrey shows off an assortment of bowls and Mama Steph is celebrating 32 years of marriage. Happy Birthday!

Mickey Mouse travel mug

Jeff: Not a major find, just something cool. It’s a Disney Parks mug. I watch anything Disney related and will take it if it’s in good shape.

Steph: For as cheap as you bought it, it’s a bargain. It’s a great color, it’s insulated, and it looks brand new; Plus, you can’t go wrong with Disney collectibles!

Pfaltzgraff Bowl

Jeff: Like I said before, if it’s made in the USA, it’s worth a look. I got two small bowls and two cereal bowls at this sale. I really become a sucker for glassware! According to the Pfaltzgraff website, this company was established in 1811. They had their own store called Pottery Hill. In the 1970s they started selling in department stores. They have been selling exclusively online since 2009.

Stephen: I like Pfaltzgraff stoneware. It is solid, beautiful and practical. I wish I had signed up for one of their designs (or a Dansk design) instead of the fancy Noritake porcelain I received for my wedding 32 years ago, beautiful as it was.

Tupperware parfait dishes

Jeff: Tupperware has found its way into our segment every week so far. I thought it was for sundaes but Steph said it was for parfaits. Well of course I should have seen that considering it has a lid. It’s number 754-25. Steph succeeded again with the color: smoky grey. What’s cool is that they detach from the base. I bet that makes them easier to clean and store.

Stephen: Definitely a nice gray, and it’s perfect that it comes apart for cleaning and storage. I’m sold on the idea of ​​taking them on a picnic!

Purple Pyrex Bowls

Jeff: We always check the Pyrex brand, but the colored products are especially popular. We had two sets this weekend from a nice lady. One was a set of four mixing bowls and the other was a set of four ribbed bowls that you see in the photo above.

Stephen: Ribbed storage bowls are so useful. The lids are plastic so they don’t tend to last as long as glass bowls so I had to replace them on Ebay for my clear set. This amethyst set you found is beautiful! Great find. Pyrex mixing bowls are beautiful and very useful too. Pyrex is a great staple in any kitchen.

My clear set was a wedding gift, and our 32nd anniversary was this week! Devyn asked for marriage advice for young people, and all I found was don’t sweat the small stuff. If you spend your time being mad or offended for every little thing your partner does wrong, you will be miserable (and so will they). Find solutions instead of complaining. And don’t forget to laugh and have fun together! Life is too short not to.

Pampered Chef Utensil Holder

Jeff: This was my favorite kitchen find of the weekend and I found it on my own. I thought at first it was called a lazy Susan, but it’s a rotating bamboo utensil holder.

Stephen: Yeah, that’s pretty awesome. It is solidly built and will last for many years I bet. It looks like bamboo, but I can’t tell if it’s real bamboo or another wood covered in a bamboo print. It’s so nice! People can use them for many purposes besides utensils, like art supplies, school supplies, makeup brushes, etc.

WEDDINGS are expensive, and couples often find ways to cut costs, including replacing flowers with candles and reducing the number of people.

But a couple have taken the new approach of asking guests to make a bank transfer of £40 to cover their meal to confirm their attendance.

People weren’t impressed with the couple’s request – especially since they also had a gift list.

Take from Redditthe disgruntled guest said, “The bottom of the wedding invitation reads, ‘We kindly ask that you confirm your attendance by contributing $50 per person for the meal.’ Desserts included.

“There was also a smaller card with the invitation listing three locations where they are registered for wedding gifts.

“It’s been 15 years since I planned my own wedding, so maybe it’s more mainstream now, but it’s a bit pricey and cheesy.”

She added, “Also, I’ve been to this restaurant before and can get a full meal and drink for less than $30.”

Fellow Redditors were quick to respond to the request and they weren’t impressed.

One person said, “I would send them a Venmo request for $50 for their bold *** bulls.”

Another said: “I suspect they are going to be shocked at how few people are coming to their wedding.

“It’s so corny. And just because people are doing it more and more doesn’t mean it’s okay.”

A third said: ‘This tendency to treat weddings as if they were exclusive clubs with cover charges is just nonsense.’

People hardly realize that with the

While another said, “You should have a wedding based on what you can afford.

“If they can’t afford the restaurant, they should have chosen a cheaper option and they want you to pay for your own food and a gift?”

FARMINGTON – Maine Mountain Chamber Music is very pleased to present works by two living American composers at their upcoming concert at the Nordica Auditorium on the UMF campus on Saturday, October 1 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15. More information and tickets at artsfarmington.org.

Divertimento for violin and viola is a light work, written by Adolphus Hailstork (1941), one of America’s most prolific black composers. He wrote Divertimento in 2004 as a wedding gift for friends, a violinist and a violist.

“Pale Yellow” is a movement from Piano Trio 2 (2003) in which American composer Jennifer Higdon (1962- ) explores the question: “Can music reflect colors, and can colors reflect in music? ?

pianist and co-director, performs this work for the first time and finds it “breathtakingly beautiful”.

In addition to these two works, they will also present works by Dmitri Shostakovich and Antonin Dvorak.

Shostakovich’s great works were profound, often sardonic expressions of the dark times he lived through. But, when needed, he was perfectly capable of creating exciting film music or entertaining entertainment, such as the popular Five Pieces for Two Violins (this time violin and viola), accompanied by piano. Laurie Kennedy, violist and co-director, says “These pieces are a hoot for everyone concerned!”

Dvorak needs no introduction to Maine Mountain Chamber Music audiences. His Piano Quartet No. 1 is filled with the effervescence, passion and excitement that everyone loves.

Maine Mountain Chamber Music co-directors, Yuri Funahashi and Laurie Kennedy are very pleased to be joined by violinist, Muneko Otani, and cellist, Elizabeth Anderson.

As principal violinist of the Cassatt String Quartet, Muneko Otani has performed in the United States, Canada and Mexico as well as in Europe and Asia. Major venues have included Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, Palacio de Bellas Artes and Opéra Bastille. The quartet has over 40 recordings and has been named one of Alex Ross’ Top 10 Classical Recordings of the Year three times by The New Yorker magazine.

When Queen Mary died in 1953, it was inherited by Queen Elizabeth II and worn by her into the 1950s. The tiara gained worldwide recognition when it was loaned to Princess Diana, who complained of its weight and the swaying of the pear-shaped pearls.

In recent years, the tiara has been loaned to Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, future Princess of Wales. No complaints.

Cartier Halo Tiara

Another tiara given new life by the Duchess of Cambridge is the Cartier Halo Tiara worn on her wedding day in April 2011. It was commissioned by George VI for his wife, the future Queen Mother. On becoming Queen Consort, Queen Elizabeth ditched the elegant tiara with 739 brilliant-cut diamonds and 149 baguette-cut diamonds, plunging into the royal vaults for bigger pieces, giving her wedding gift to her daughter Princess Elizabeth in 1944.

Queen Elizabeth II was never seen wearing the tiara, lending it to her sister Princess Margaret and daughter Princess Anne, before lending it to Kate.

“As for the tiara that day, I was very lucky to be able to choose this beautiful art deco headband tiara,” Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, said in the recording of an exhibition after her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018. “Harry and I had been to Buckingham Palace to meet Her Majesty The Queen to select one of the options there, which was an incredibly surreal day as you can tell imagine it.”

The 11-segment art deco bandeau style was created by Queen Mary in 1932 to accommodate a detachable brooch given to her in 1893 by the County of Lincoln. On Queen Mary’s death, it was passed on to Queen Elizabeth II, who was never seen wearing it. The tiara had faded from prominence before Meghan’s high-profile exit, failing to make it to any of the tiara prediction lists for the wedding day.

Worn by Queen Elizabeth on her wedding day and loaned to Princess Anne for her wedding to Captain Mark Phillips in 1973 and Princess Beatrice for her wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2020, the tiara suffered a few scratches. On the morning of her wedding to Prince Philip, the tiara broke and was rushed to be repaired by Garrard jewelers before the Queen walked down the aisle.

The tiara was commissioned by Queen Mary in 1919 using diamonds that were part of a necklace Queen Victoria gave her as a wedding gift in 1893. It was later given by Queen Mary to her beautiful -daughter, the queen mother.

The tiara was part of the Queen Mother’s collection until 2002, when it was bequeathed to Queen Elizabeth.

Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, married to Grand Duke Vladimir of Russia, the uncle of Tsar Nicholas II, had an eye and a considerable budget for jewelry. Last of the Romanovs to flee Russia, she managed to smuggle 224 of her jewels with the help of her antique dealer Albert Stopford.

After her death in 1920, the Grand Duchess’ family sold the jewelry. Eventual owners included Woolworths heiress Barbara Hutton, Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Mary. Queen Mary bought the damaged Vladimir Tiara, repairing it so it could host the Cambridge Emeralds.

The tiara became the property of Queen Elizabeth who had the gold frame replaced with platinum and frequently wore it at formal events.

Brooches may have less impact than tiaras, but the Cullinan III and IV brooch features two spectacular diamonds valued at over £50 million ($93 million). The room is nicknamed Granny’s Chips, a nickname given to the room by Queen Elizabeth II when it belonged to her grandmother Queen Mary.

Cullinan III is a 94.4 carat pear shaped drop and Cullinan IV is a 63.6 carat cushion shaped stone, both cut from the original Cullinan stone. Discovered in South Africa in 1905, the Cullinan was the largest gem-quality rough diamond ever mined. The gem was gifted to King Edward VII in 1907.

Cullinan I ascended the Sovereign’s Scepter with Cross and Cullinan II is now part of the Imperial State Crown.

The brooch was reserved by Queen Elizabeth II for important occasions, such as her Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

The Greville Legacy

Along with salvaged Romanov jewelry and Queen Mary artifacts, many of the Queen’s most recognizable pieces come from Margaret Greville’s collection. The illegitimate daughter of a millionaire brewer and his married cook, Greville married the heir to a baronetcy and acquired a considerable jewelry collection thanks to the patronage of Boucheron and Cartier.

A close friend of Queen Mary, Greville left the bulk of her jewelery to the Queen Mother when she died in 1942. According to the UK National Trust, the jewelery was delivered in an unremarkable tin box along with her entire undocumented content.

Left to the Queen Mother in 1942, the 93.7-carat Emerald Kokoshnik tiara resurfaced after decades at the bottom of a safe, worn by Princess Eugenie during her 2018 wedding to Jack Brooksbank. Created by Boucheron in 1919 in the “kokoshnik” style favored by the fallen Russian Imperial Court, the tiara was lent to Princess Eugenie by Queen Elizabeth.

The tiara caused controversy when a biographer suggested it was Meghan Markle’s first choice for her wedding to Prince Harry.

You did it ! You’ve chosen the perfect gift for your loved one and even found some paper to wrap it with. Now for the finishing touch: a knot! Anyone who’s fumbled with ribbon knows that tying a knot can be a challenge, but it really adds something special to your gift. Grab your ribbon, a pair of scissors and let’s get started. Follow these simple steps to really wow the recipient. You will use these skills for Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, birthdays, etc.

  1. Hold the ribbon down with your thumb on the box. Wrap the ribbon around the width of the package. Wrap it over the part of the ribbon you are holding.
  2. Continue looping along the entire length. Pull the piece you were holding up and over the center. Wrap the other piece over it and pull it under the center. Pull the pieces at opposite ends to tighten the knot.
  3. Create a loop with one end of the ribbon. Wrap the other end of this ribbon over this loop. Tuck it under and pull to form a second loop. Pull both loops into a knot and make sure they are even.
  4. Fold one dangling end of the ribbon in half lengthwise and cut diagonally to form two pointed points. Repeat on the other dangling end of the ribbon.

“The gift seems unusual until you consider that Britain was left financially depleted by the war effort,” wrote library heritage experts Karen Hind and Trudy Bennett.

“Wartime austerity not only continued into peacetime, but the rationing of basic commodities was even worse in 1946 and 1947 than it was during the war.

“That’s why the royal couple had requested that some of their gifts be for their people.”

According to a November 1947 edition of the The Australian Women’s Weekly, Queensland pineapple cans had “special gift tags”.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman at the time said the canned pineapple was distributed as Princess Elizabeth requested in 1947.

“Food was not a common gift and it was probably one of the biggest in volume,” she said.

The current Governor of Queensland, Dr Jeannette Young, described the impact of Queen Elizabeth’s eight visits to Queensland after becoming queen in 1952 as an “example of duty and service”.

“Since childhood, the Queen has been held in great affection by the people of Queensland,” Young said.

“The strength of the bond between our people and our Sovereign was evident during Her Majesty’s eight remarkably successful visits to our State.

“Since becoming Queensland’s Head of State in 1952, Her Majesty has been a powerful symbol of continuity and stability, an unparalleled example of duty and service.”

No doubt canned pineapple would have raised eyebrows five years ago.

Queen Elizabeth has visited Queensland eight times, mostly with her husband Prince Philip.

In 1954 she spent seven days in Queensland, visiting regional towns including Townsville in addition to Brisbane.

On the second trip in March 1963, she visited Brisbane and Coolangatta as part of a trip to Australia to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of Canberra.

The Queen and Philip arrived on the royal yacht HMS Britannia and stayed at Government House as guests of then Queensland Governor Colonel Sir Henry Abel Smith.

During her visit in 1970 to mark the 200th anniversary of Captain James Cook charting the east coast of Australia, the Queen visited Longreach, Mount Isa and Townsville as well as Cooktown where she unveiled a memorial stone at the site where the ‘Endeavor has landed.

Seven years later, she and Philip visited Brisbane for three days to attend a state reception at the Cloudland Ballroom, unveiled a Silver Jubilee fountain at the new Queensland Cultural Center and opened the Queen Elizabeth II Sports Center Jubilee (QEII) at Mount Gravatt.

It was on the same ground in 1982 that the Queen closed the Commonwealth Games and the image of Matilda the winking kangaroo circled the world in pre-internet times.

She returned to Brisbane in 1988 to open World Expo 88 at what is now South Bank Parklands and again in March 2002 where she also opened the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Coolum.

The Queen’s last visit to Queensland was in October 2011 to attend a Queensland Government reception in Brisbane for people affected by the natural disasters of the summer of 2010-2011.

Charlotte White, head of design at Europe’s largest online diamond jeweler 77 Diamondspreviously spoke to Express.co.uk about the necklace.

She said: “Kate’s jewelry style choices are widely recognized as being flawless and have attracted legions of fans.

“She certainly donned some of the most precious, rare and valuable jewelry in the world in her day,” the expert said.

DO NOT MISS :

The necklace is worth so much that jewelry box experts estimate it would take the average Londoner 1,718 years of work to afford it.

The brooches that come with the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace are known as Queen’s Nizam of Hyderabad Rose brooches.

According to fine jewelery and engagement ring experts Steven Stone, these brooches are valued at £80,000.

Ferrari are among the most desirable supercars and hypercars on the planet alongside Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren, and Pagani. They offer sportiness and comfort, speed and acceleration, and allow everyone to stand out.



These prestigious and extremely desirable vehicles come with an air of sophistication and wealth – and sometimes confidence, if often misplaced. Ferraris, whether vintage, retro or new, offer something for everyone. Car enthusiasts love them because they are meticulously tuned, both chassis and engine, while people who show up love them simply because “it’s a Ferrari”. Ferrari has very carefully maintained its reputation sell his vehicles to a certain type of person who will help elevate and improve his status – which can sometimes backfire with dramatic effect. Many celebrities who have owned Ferraris are now being banned from buying them because they did something to upset the Prancing Horse.

So whether it’s modifying their cars too much, selling them too soon, or publicly criticizing them on social media, famous people have lost their Ferrari buying privileges for the foreseeable future. In order to prevent that from happening, here are eight reasons why people have been banned from buying a Ferrari again.

8 Modify cars too much

Ferrari has a clause in its contracts which states that owners cannot modify their new Ferraris until a certain period of time has elapsed. That doesn’t mean new owners aren’t allowed to touch it at all, but modifications such as widebody kits are a big no-no.

The clause apparently also applies to certain colors, as several celebrities have been chastised for the color of their cars. One such famous incident involved DeadMau5who wrapped his 458 Italia in a Nyan cat delivered. Ferrari sued him and in response he sold the “Purrari” and bought a Lamborghini Huracan – on which he put the same livery since Lamborghini has no such restrictions.

seven Sell ​​them before the end of the contractual period

In the purchase contract, Ferrari put a clause stating that the new owners must own their Ferrari for a certain period of time before they can sell it. This duration differs, but is generally around 12 months, although it can be up to 18 months.

One celebrity who did not adhere to this rule was Floyd Mayweather, the famous boxer. He tends to buy expensive cars and only keep them for a few months, before moving on to better vehicles. This didn’t sit well with Ferrari, so they banned him from buying limited-edition cars again.

Criticizing cars is an almost daily occurrence and we car enthusiasts do it all the time. Unfortunately, this does not please the bosses of Maranello at all. Ferrari has a reputation to uphold and cannot afford to have its cars called ‘lemons’.

One such incident happened with the famous rapper 50 Cent, who had to have his 488 GTB towed to a garage because the battery is dead. After the incident, 50 Cent was banned and now has to pose with someone else’s new Ferraris if he wants to look cool.

5 Accepting gifts of Ferraris from questionable people

Accepting any car from someone you don’t know is a little weird, but when you accept a 458 Italia from a financial fraudster, it gives Ferrari’s PR department a reason to get involved. This is exactly what would have happened with Kim Kardashian when she received a wedding present.

Although this rumor cannot be confirmed or denied, it is possible that it happened when the delivery company confirmed the delivery of the car. This put Kim K on Ferrari’s blacklist for many years, and it’s unclear if she’s still banned.

4 Chasing Ferrari will

Preston Henn, an avid Ferrari collector in North America, pursued the Prancing Horse as they refused to sell him the rare LaFerrari Apertaeven if it met all the ridiculous prerequisites put in place by Ferrari to be able to buy one.

Mr Henn argued his reputation as a Ferrari collector had been tarnished by the refusal, but he eventually dropped the case. He never had his LaFerrari Aperta as he sadly passed away a year after the case was dropped.

3 Criticize Ferrari automobiles in test drives

Chris Harris is currently one of the presenters of the famous Top of the line motor show, and he had trouble with the prancing horse. Before his Top of the line days he wrote car reviews for various publications and had his own YouTube channel where he drove some pretty amazing vehicles.

The reason Ferrari forbade him from reviewing any of their cars again is because in 2011 he wrote an article about how Ferrari tuned their press cars to be the best version possible. of the car, while the production versions weren’t as good. Ouch!


2 Losing your Ferrari for a long time while paying it off

Buying a Ferrari should be a momentous occasion and driving it every other day should make the owner feel special. Unfortunately, many celebrities don’t quite share this enthusiast’s point of view.

Although the rumor cannot be confirmed, Justin Bieber allegedly “misplaced” his 458 Italia after a night of heavy drinking, which caused his assistant to take three weeks to get the car back. Ferrari caught wind of this and although they never released a statement publicly, Bieber was immediately banned from getting a new Ferrari.

While Ferrari allows subtle changes to new cars just to make them unique, they don’t like big changes while the car is still under contract and being financed. However, one subtle modification that they don’t allow at all is when new owners change the prancing horse logo on their cars.

This happened several times, with DeadMau5 changing his horse into a cat to fit the Nyan cat ‘Purrari’, and Justin Bieber who not only changed the Prancing Horse logo but also put a West Coast Customs widebody kit on his 458 – two massive breaches of Ferrari’s terms. So if you ever buy a new Ferrari, don’t touch the horse on its back or it will kick you.

Fifty years before the events of Dragon Housea cunning thief has snuck into the hatcheries beneath Dragonstone and taken three dragon eggs destined to one day return to House Targaryen…over two hundred years later during Daenerys Targaryen’s wedding to Khal Drogo.

Among the many noble houses in which we are interested A song of ice and fireMaison Farman is definitely not a. As depicted in George RR Martin’s Fire & Blood and The world of ice and fire, the Farmans were sworn bannermen of House Lannister and ruled Fair Isle, a small island in the far west of Westeros. But this unimposing family was embroiled in scandal following the death of Aegon the Conqueror, when Aegon’s granddaughter, Rhaena Targaryen, took refuge on Fair Isle after being widowed and the claim of her children to the throne was usurped by her uncle, Maegor the Cruel.

Women have often been pawns in the game of thrones, married to lords and heirs, but things are always more heated when dragons are involved. On Fair Isle, Rhaena has found good friends and an unlikely new lover, Elissa Farman, daughter of Lord Marq Farman.

Elissa was, by all accounts, a spirited girl who loved horses, hawks and the sea. As a teenager, she sailed alone to Bear Island and the Reach in the south. She was also engaged twice but scared off all her suitors. Yet Rhaena Targaryen was her equal in spirit, and when the exiled queen and her dragon Dreamfyre left Fair Isle to establish her own court on Dragonstone, Elissa went with her.

Inevitably, the dreary walls of Dragonstone grew too narrow, and Elissa longed to sail again. Rhaena could not bear to lose another faithful companion and refused his request for a ship. But a few years later, their love cooled and Elissa finally got permission to leave. Since Elissa had no money to fund her new adventure, before leaving Targaryen Fortress, she took the most valuable things she could think of: three eggs from Dragonstone Hatcheries.

From Dragonstone, she sailed to the Driftmark, onto Pentos, and finally Braavos, where she sold her precious dragon eggs to the Sealord. She finally got her gold and built her boat, sun chaserbefore heading farther west than anyone dared to dream, as she believed there were lands beyond the known limits of Westeros – a belief eventually shared by Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) at the end of game of thrones.
