Witch's Brew for Tasty Tuesday Treat Cart

National American Beer Day raises a glass to the rich American beermaking history and those who savor the continued traditions. Pour your favorite pint with millions who enjoy the storied brews across the nation.

U.S. Brewing History
Brewing beer in America begins long before Europeans arrived since Native Americans brewed beer from a variety of ingredients. They used corn, birch sap, and water to ferment their beverage. Then when the first colonists arrived in Virginia, they began combining their brewing traditions with the supplies at hand – that included corn, too. Since then, brewing and brewers became a principal occupation in the colonies. Interestingly, the first white child born in Manhattan grew up to be the first brewer born in America.

Today, the brewery established by David G. Yuengling is the oldest producing brewery in the United States. He established the Eagle Brewery in 1829. Amazingly, the brewery still remains in the family to this day.

Unlike most other breweries of the time, the Eagle Brewery survived Prohibition. In fact, very few survived. Those that did survive tried various legal and illegal tactics. In the Eagle Brewery’s case, they reduced their alcohol content to within the legal limit. They also branched out. Ice cream anyone? Yes, the Yuengling’s started a dairy. Others turned their beermaking supplies into other products. When prohibition lifted, they returned to full-fledged beermaking.

Despite these efforts, nearly every brewer existing before prohibition dissolved. Out of just over 1,300 brewers, only about 100 remained after prohibition. Today, we recognize the names of many of those surviving breweries.

The skill of a brewer requires years of practice in the trade. It’s revered even. In Milwaukee, their professional baseball team is named after the brewer. In St. Louis and Denver, the stadiums are named after prominent brewers.

More than 2,100 breweries are manufacturing beer in the United States. They range in size from industry giants to brewpubs and microbreweries.

American Beer Facts
The U.S. produced 196 million barrels of beer in 2009.
Americans consume roughly 20 US gallons of beer per capita annually.
In 2008, the United States ranked sixteenth in the world in per capita consumption. However, total consumption was second only to China.
After Congress repealed prohibition, the industry consolidated into a small number of large-scale breweries.
The majority of the new breweries in the U.S. are small breweries and brewpubs. As members of the Brewers Association, they are termed “craft breweries” to differentiate them from the larger and older breweries.
Larger breweries most commonly produce the American lager.
However, smaller breweries (many founded in the 1980s) produce a range of styles.
Beer styles originating in the United States include:
American pale ale
Pennsylvania porter
American IPA
steam beer
amber ale
cream ale
Cascadian dark ale.

It's four days before Halloween. Black cats are very much an ominous symbol of the Halloween holiday. Therefore, it is only fitting the we celebrate Black Cat Day today. Black cats are a dark, evil symbol of Halloween. Witches and demons are known to be able transform into a black cat and back again. As Halloween nears, those witches and demons begin to increasingly appear, temporarily transforming at will into a black cats, as needed to escape or get near a human victim.

Did You Know? Black cats are the least adopted pet can in the United States. I guess their reputation precedes them.

Are black cats good .... or bad? The answer to this question depends upon where you live. In Celtic folklore, it was believed black cats turned into fairies and back. Upon arrival to the New World, Pilgrims put a twist into this belief. They believed black cats are evil and foreboding. They also believed it was really a witch or a demon. Never let a black cat cross your path. It will bring bad luck. In Europe, black cats were once burned alive. People caught harboring a black cat, were severely punished. In Egypt, Great Britain, or Japan, people have just the opposite opinion of black cats. People there, see them as bringing good luck and a good omen.

Who has a black cat?

On October 26th, National Day of the Deployed annually honors the United States military personnel deployed around the globe.

The designation recognizes all of the brave military personnel who have been deployed, are sacrificing, or have sacrificed their lives to defend our country. It also acknowledges their families who are separated from them during deployment and the sacrifices they make in order for their family members to serve our country.

Thank you to all the brave souls out there and thank you to the families for their sacrifice to our great country. We honor you

News to Use:

Activities staff will go door to door to offer treats; following proper infection control practices.

*Veteran's Day Ceremony will be held virtually this year thanks to VITAS Hospice. We will present our Veteran's with a certificate, a small gift, and read an announcement on the overhead paging system. Photos will be taken with permission. Activities staff will take the Ipads individually to each Veteran to view the ceremony 1:1.

Thank you Western PA Regional Response Health Collaborative Team for your mask donation for our residents.

Nearly half of nursing home residents with COVID-19 show no symptoms, national study finds - Clinical Daily News - McKnight's Long Term Care News A multi-state study in Genesis HealthCare facilities found that more than 40% of nursing home residents with COVID-19 are asymptomatic. Facility-wide testing was more successful in detecting these lurking infections than unit-only surveys.

Nachos are extremely popular both with a meal, and as a snack. They are in popular demand for parties of all kinds. We enjoy them while watching any sporting event, at home, at the stadium or in the arena. They are so popular, that there are two holidays close together to celebrate and enjoy the versatile nacho. I don't know about you, but this is fine with me. I'm gonna celebrate both holidays as they arrive, with a fistful of nachos or a nacho supreme.

International Nacho Day: Always October 21

National Nacho Day: Always November 6

Happy National Boss Day to our leader Tom Parsons...have a lovely day!

Columbus Day on the second Monday in October is observed in the United States each year. The day signifies Christopher Columbus’ arrival to America on October 12, 1492.

Christopher Columbus was long given credit for discovering North America. However, long before Columbus was born (1451-1506), Leif Erikson landed on these shores. The Italian-born explorer did sail across the Atlantic, though, and more than once. In fact, he made four transatlantic voyages. His first was in 1492. Hence the rhyme, “In 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”

During the 1492 expedition, Columbus was looking for Asia. He and his crew landed their three ships somewhere near the modern-day Bahamas. While he may not have discovered an already populated continent, he did spur further exploration and colonization of North America.

Fire Prevention Week:

Since 1922, the NFPA has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country. During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving public education in an effort to drastically decrease casualties caused by fires.

Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land

[10/08/20]   Today the Dietary Department and Activities Department are teaming up to offer Oktoberfest... The kitchen is serving Roasted Pork, German Potato Salad, Mixed Vegetables, Apple Cider, and German Chocolate Cake for lunch.

This afternoon soft pretzels, corn dogs, and beer (root beer also available) plus German music, will be offered room to room.

die Festlichkeit!! (German- celebration, festiveness)

Yum yum.... waiting for reviews ...

Working on the special meal...

October 6th is National Noodle Day, it recognizes oodles of noodles just in time for National Pasta Month! What style do you prefer...angel hair, lasagna, egg noodle, kluski, penne? So many choices!

We are celebrating National Noodle Day and National Pasta month tomorrow with a special meal prepared by our Activities Department *(Culinary School graduate, ServSafe Certified, and Certified Dietary Manager)*
Provolone Baked Ziti with homemade sauce, Loaded Ravioli w. spinach, mushrooms, & bacon, Tossed Salad, Garlic Bread, Assorted Cheesecake.

Each year on October 5, people across the nation observe National Do Something Nice Day.

This observance is very similar to National Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is celebrated on February 17.

It would be ideal if everyone lived their lives doing kind things on a daily basis and without thinking about it. We all get caught up in our fast-paced lifestyles. However, kindness should never be sacrificed to get ahead in the world. Kindness doesn’t require grand gesture. In a matter of seconds, we hold the power to change the course of a person’s day by being nice. The person’s day in question might even be our own.
