February 1974 Bonnie's Korner February was quite a month of "Days," birthdays,


holidays, days to remember loved ones, etc. There's Thomas Edison, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and of course, St. Valentine's Day. February was also Heart month. When we think of the many men and women (not


having birthdays in February) who have contributed so greatly to our Nation and the wonderful life we have today, shouldn't every month be Thanksgiving month to Americans? Here is a little poem I ran across the other day and


I would like to pass it on to you. I hope it affects you as much as it did me. It is short but it has "life written between every line." WE CANNOT CHANGE yesterday . . . That is


quite clear; Nor begin tomorrow until it's here. So all that is left for you and me . . . Is to make TODAY as good as can be.

for a tasty and quick dessert:


Impossible Pie 1/2 cup Bisquick 1/2 cup sugar 3 T. margarine dash of salt


1 tsp. vanilla 1 cup coconut 4 eggs 2 cups milk


Put in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased 10" pie pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Cool and serve. It makes a crust as it bakes.


The old saying is, "if you don't like the weather in


Oklahoma, hang around a minute and it will change." We have had the warmest February in history, and your April bills* for all electric homes should show a decrease—if you haven't left your thermostat setting too high. I had my "39th" birthday this month, as Jack

*Did you notice she's writing about getting a bill in


April for February's electric use? We have a much faster turn around today thanks to automatic meter reading. It all started with the Contract Meter Reading Program in 1984 (see page 13, Frank Wilson) and the creation of an in-house data processing and billing department (see February 2012, OEC News, page 10, Charles Barton).
