Craving a little something sweet? You'll love these tiny, easy-bake treats packed with antioxidant-rich pecans. Adapted from "The Best of Mr. Food Cookin' Quickies" (Oxmoor House), they're perfect paired with coffee and a cozy fire.
I was cleaning out a file and ran across this rendering of Elvis at the first Thanksgiving. Cole did this work of art in the first or second grade. Yeah, that's right, when other kids were tracing their hands and drawing make believe turkeys, Cole was imagining Elvis at the first Thanksgiving. You have to give the guy credit, it's an amazing likeness.
It's almost like you're there sitting next to the King of Rock 'n Roll. Can't you just hear him say, "Colonel, how 'bout passin' me the stuffing and another jelly doughnut....thank ya very much!"
Happy Thanksgiving, Boomers!

Sarah Haskins thinks you've probably seen these movies before. I think she may be right.
Trust me guys, nothing says "I Love You" like his-'n-hers chainsaws. At least that's what this commercial told me.
Here's the deal. Four and a half years after I put Charlotte and myself on the waiting list for this prestiguous lecture series I get the call.
"Congratulations," they tell me, "you've made it to the top of the list."
Which had me thinking all LIST? WHAT LIST? Then I remembered something about enrolling Cole in this oh-so-private university and signing some form at orientation about tickets for this lecture series they've been having since, I dunno, ABE LINCOLN was president.
OH, that list. At least that's what I told the sophisticated woman on the other end of the line. A mere 60 seconds later my MasterCard was back in my wallet and I was the proud owner of two season tickets to the most exclusive lecture series this side of I-35W. I know what you're thinking. No, my butt doesn't look big in these pants and yes, I rock.
So I went. Errr, make that we went. Charlotte couldn't make it, so Cole and I had a guys night out. That's right, two adult males on the loose in the fifth largest city in the country. We did what any self-respecting Texas males would do when faced with all that opportunity. We saw Fareed Zakaria, Thomas L. Friedman and David Gergen debate healthcare and the world situation for 90 minutes.
