Jam-Jar Cupcakes:


Cupcakes are always a hit these days. But what a better way to eat them, with less mess. As a kid, I was more of a cup eater. I mean, it was easier to get the last drops out of a cup than it was a plate. The looks of one licking a plate clean is neanderthal. This is my first attempt at placing them in a canning jar. Getting the right jar size is important; big enough for layers, but not too big for all the calories that people shy away from them. The pict shows a Red Velvet with whipped topping. It was cut in half, with frosting in between. The ones we made today, flew off the shelf...

A twist to the Ant and the Grasshopper:



A new version of the ant and the Grasshopper.. Read to the end. The end is the most important.

Two Different Versions, Two Different Morals...
________________________________________

OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer
away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

_______________________________________

MODERN VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.


President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has
gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.


MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

I received this on an email from a family member (thanks Stacey), and thought it conveyed an important point. For those of us who work hard for an honest living, our standard of living, our rights and our freedoms will digress downward even farther, unless we take our right to vote very seriously. See the Fox News Network (FNC) w/Glen Beck.

What happened to my datebook?


Amazing little pieces of technology, those iPods are! Just got one (iPod Touch 32Gb), and personal organizers are going in the direction of 'tablets'. No moving parts, few buttons and it has everything to do with touch, hence the iPod Touch. My first personal organizer was an electronic rolodex type of calculator. Many buttons, a single line of text on a 7-segmet display; and it was huge. My, how times have changed!

Back in those days you didn't have to check for software updates or synchronize with a personal computer. But now you can use those little devices for e-mail, place on-line orders, 'Tweet' and update your Facebook status.

Oops, got an e-mail, gotta go and check it, because if I don't check it, I might miss something...

Fall is here:

I can feel it in the air, temperatures are falling (a bit) and I can't wait to get into the Pumpkin side of things. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones and other pumpkin stuff.


The best part is the smell in our bakery, the combination of Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice and Clove make Crumbles a place that draws you in. Have a great FALL, and we'll see you here soon.
