Enjoy up before you Recipe One of my mother's special cakes for the holidays was Coco- nut Pound Cake. She made them, not only for the family, for friends, too. What better gift to receive than home-baked items? So easy to make and your "shopping" is confined to your own kitchen, af- ter a trip or two to the grocery store - and you don't have a crowd fight in the mall! Your "mall" vis- its can be strictly for pleasure! Try this version of the pound cake: Coconut - Black Walnut Pound Cake 2 cups sugar; 1 cup oil; 4 eggs, beaten; 3 cups four; 1/2 teaspoon salt; 1/2 teaspoon baking soda; 1/2 teaspoon baking powder; 1 cup buttermilk; 1 cup chopped black walnuts; 1 3-ounce can shredded coconut; 2 teaspoons coconut ex- tract; 1 cup sugar; 1/2 cup water; 3 Tablespoons butter; 1 - 2 teaspoon coconut extract. Cream sugar, oil and eggs in mixer bowl until light and fluffy.

The minimum re- quirements for accreditation blood banks and transfusion services are based primarily on the AABB's "Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services." These standards not only set the level of professional proficiency for blood banks and transfusion services in the United States, but also pro- vide the basis of practice for simi- lar facilities around the world. Established in 1947, the AABB is the professional society for ap- proximately 2,200 community, re- gional, and Red Cross blood cen- ters; hospital based blood banks and transfusion services; and over 8,800 individuals engaged in blood banking and transfusion medi- cine. Its member facilities are re- sponsible for collecting virtually all of the nation's blood supply and for transfusing more than 80 per- cent of the blood used for patient care in the United States. The AABB sets standards, assesses and accredits blood collection and transfusion facilities and provides continuing education and infor- mation. , , and baking powder. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Fold in walnuts, coconut and 2 teaspoons coconut extract. Pour into greased and floured 10-inch tube pan: Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Combine 1 cup sugar, water and 3 table- spoons butter in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stir- ring constantly; remove from heat. Stir in 1 to 2 teaspoons coconut extract. Pour over warm cake. Let stand in pan for 4 hours or un- til completely cold. Invert onto serving plate. Store, covered in plastic wrap or in an airtight con- tainer. Makes about 16 servings. Hmmm Now what are they up to? Have you noticed the Tabbs have "cleared" a field that lies close to the pike? Gee Gee tells us that folks are scratching heads and bit- ing nails trying to decide "why?", "if?.", "what?" and "when?" con- cerning the activity! Might be fun to have a contest to see who can come up the correct guess as to what the Tabbs are planning for that corner - so - o- o call the Tabbs and get your guess in -- you might be the big winner of- well - noth- ing really but - you'll get your name in our column! Christmas Just seeing the word Christ- mas in print brings to mind a song we "useta" sing at church; C is the first Christ Child, H - Herald An- gels, R - Redeemer, I - Israel, S - Star, T - Three Wise Men, M - Manger, A - All He stands for, S - Shepherds. Gives a beautiful thought to the word and for the season. Does your family celebrate the holiday with some traditional event - one you've been observing all your life and maybe longer? Call and share it with us! When my brother, Jimmy, and I were kids, growing up here in our town, Christmas at the Locke home was centered around the church and family. Every year we participated in a Christmas play of some type at the church, for which we rehearsed for weeks before the date of the pro- gram. When very young we were handed a slip of paper on which was written a poem or some kind of Christmas message that we called a "piece" or "peace" or "peece" - I nevered bothered to find out the spelling of the word - I didn't care - just the mention of it was enough to make me nervous! Anyway, 'twas tradition that all kids must say one of those things - or it wouldn't be a REAL Christ- mas Program! Your FLC was only too happy when I graduated from saying "p--ce" to playing the piano and/or singing! This tradition carried on over to my own children and their friends - and that was when I real- ized why this was such a beloved ghty-Eight 12-36 mos.* choose O CASH BACK Town, WV 725-3448 has moved his dental practice to 115 South Charles Street Charles Town, WV , i" i' I ' '' I Shenandoah Counseling Associates Karen R.

Parents just love to see their little ones up there on the stage trying to remember what was on that little piece (oh - so that's where it came from) of pa- per their Sunday School teacher had handed them and told them to memorize! We always had a play or pag- eant following the "pieces" and when we "outgrew" that section of the evening's entertainment, we "graduated" on to the play - some were angels, some shepherds/wise men, etc. The parts of Mary and Joseph were reserved for adults and I think "angel" was the peak of your FLC's acting role - guess I just "fit the part!" Someone - somewhere along the way - built a "real" manger, filled with hay, for the baby Jesus to lay upon (the part played by some girl's doll baby). I think that manger is still at the church, tucked away in the corner of the attic with all the copies of the plays and songs and pieces! All jesting aside, we did have fun - it left lasting memories and we learned first hand what Christmas is really about! Don't Forget As we put our Christmas cel- ebration together - shopping for the "right" gifts, baking all the goodies, etc let's not forget the homeless, those in nursing homes and/or hospitals, those who have recently lost loved ones, the ill -- all those less fortunate than us - and find a way to include them in our Christmas as well as remem- bering all in our thoughts and prayers. Wait a minute is there some- thing lurking in Leetown's water supply? something in the air, or what? Seems senior citizens have been tripping, slipping, falling - thus now wearing big bright shiny black and blue eyes! I know - it's not funny, but to hear my Aunt Dot Blue tell about the mishaps that have "befallen" her husband, Uncle Nabe and neighbor/friend Mrs. Barkdoll, somehow I had to chuckle!
