Pops and I are in Fort Wayne, Indiana today. We will spend the night here. While researching the tea I found many fascinating things. There is a lot of history and industry here.
But the thing that caught my attention was this: it is the death and burial place of Johnny Chapman also known as Johnny Appleseed. Do your own Google search on him. He is quite a man.
I love apples. I eat one almost every single day.
I like all kinds of apples. It depends on if I'm just eating them or using them in a recipes as to which ones I choose. My favorite eating apple is the Jazz.
