I just got an email from another ex-skater...Canadian medalist and innovator (and painter). Toller Cranston died yesterday of an apparent heart attack. Damn.
Daniel, when I was a kid there were candy alphabet sets that were sold next to the cake mixes and stuff....they were inexpensive, you could buy several sets, and write a book on top of a sheet cake if you were so inclined. I wonder if they still sell those. You can also buy tubes of colored gel for writing on cakes, or make your own decorating tubes out of plastic bags. I'm not the most artistic person in the world, can't do roses, but I did teach myself basic cake decorating when I was about 11 years old.... If I can do it anyone can! (There are also stencils for airbrushing designs and lettering...BFD.)
I found the cakewrecks site....couldn't believe the misshapen messes....
Joan, I found Vivian and Nonie's story very touching, but also felt sad that they had to wait so long (and in hiding) to marry.
I have a couple of friends who have been together for almost 50 years....20 years ago they paid an attorney a small fortune to set up an unbreakable "domestic partnership" for them, that was all that was available at the time. Too many of their friends had died of AIDS, and the families had been able to break simple wills. Easily. One couple that I knew, too, had a profitable business together along with the relationship. The surviving partner was left with NOTHING....except his clothes, and a car that was registered in his name only. Losing his lifelong love PLUS everything they'd built together destroyed him.
The news of Vivian Boyack and Nonie Dubes' marriage after 72 years together spread quickly. Davenport, Iowa.
Not a bad idea....bake the cake, shape it, and do the basic icing, and give the customer everything they need to write whatever they want. If they mess up, it's not the baker's fault.
I've seen some ugly stuff "created" by professional bakers on those silly-ass timed contests on Food Network before the whole thing became too disgusting.
There are no-talent nobodies in every field.....the TV is across the room behind me, and I can hear the brainless audience cheering a jump that barely got off the ice.
Gack! I'm outta here.
In a "Man bites dog" type reversal, a Denver baker has refused to bake a homophobic cake. There's speculation that this is a ploy by the bigots however. If a baker's right to deny this request holds sway, it would also support bakers' rights to deny service to anyone they disagree with.
Denver, Colorado can feel like an alternate universe for a lot of reasons, but now we can add a new one to the list. Because in the first such case of which I’m aware, a bakery in Denver has been sued for refusing to bake a homophobic cake. According to the reports, the plaintiff in the suit requested that the baker bake him a cake that said “God hates gays” along with a picture of two men holding hands with an X over them. When the baker—who identifies as Christian herself—refused, the plaintiff filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, accusing her of religious discrimination.
It’s a snappy inversion of the now-classic example of bakers who refuse to provide wedding cakes for gay marriage or commitment ceremonies (or florists who refuse to provide flowers, photographers who refuse to photograph the ceremony, etc.). And that’s probably not an accident; if I were a betting woman, I’d bet heavily that a pro-religious-exemption think tank or law firm, like the Becket Fund, had come up with this plan and recruited a plaintiff to set it in motion.
"There is a large quantity of new attempts for 1016..."
Many Republicans would gladly take us back to the 11th century if they could! Over and over again, the party-line divisions on many issues are striking.
One day they may come up with a shot that will prevent Republickityism, the human form of Mad Cow Disease. I had hopes that the Dubya Virus would have done it but it appears that one only works on people who have a little common sense. The Mitt R. vaccine was hopeless and about as bad as Holy Water. There is a large quantity of new attempts for 1016 but not much hope there as they are all derived from pond scum. All I can say is that this disease is starting to get scary and if you throw in Global Warming we could see a lot of Panic.
Poor little Ricky didn't like the Pope saying the flock doesn't need to breed like rabbits. He wants us all to keep being fruitful and multiplying.
