How to Make Edible Cookie Dough There were plenty of days when I was single that sitting down with a bottle of wine and a tub of cookie dough was a perfectly acceptable dinner. Okay.. it still is but most of us are a little bit more squeamish about eating traditional cookie dough because of the eggs. (I still wonder how Rocky stayed alive by downing that awful egg drink concoction when he was training in the movie…) There aremore

But First.. Let Me Help Abuse Victims Did you see this video running around Facebook this week? The video of the sorority sisters at a Diamondbacks game, having a good time and taking selfies (which is what girls this age do, if you live under a rock). Lots and lots of selfies.

I originally posted this back in 2011 (forever ago in the online world) but with the interwebz all aflutter last week from “that” post (you know the one.. the one the mom with the boys wrote to the teen girls.. if you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it. I refuse to link to it), thought it was worth breaking out again because it’s ALL still relevant but more importantly, it shows that PARENTS need to up THEIR a-game onmore

The first couple of weeks of school is under my belt and after reviewing all the requests for money from the girls schools, I’ve decided to approach this the way the Big Leagues do: By looking for corporate sponsors and offering up naming rights to our house.
