Yay! Weekend approaches!
so, finally have thepix of Hubby's October cake (covers birthday and Halloween).
There is a pair of Levi jeans still in great shape, from 1879, in a msueum. No kidding. You could still wear 'em, probably.
The 22nd amendment means you can't run for more than two terms as POTUS, which was brought about specifically after Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was up for four terms, but died early int he fourth term. By 1951, term limits were in place. Ironically, the first president affected was Dwight D Eisenhower, whose political party opposed Roosevelt's.
To make best use of melatonin as a sleep aid, don't just take it in a dark room ---- already be in the dark room for ten minutes before taking it. Tip from the nerd. (Melatonin won't help you sleep if there's lights on.) And relax if it takes you half an hour to fall asleep. While 10-20 minutes was nomral, in the 21st century, 30 minutes is not abnormal.
There are two kinds of marzipan. One is soft and workable; the other is also workable, but has to be baked, and is even more fragile. The kind I use will air-dry over days, becoming brittle, but is yummy. And easier, frankly.
That last leads into: Hubby's cake. he asked for "weird and creepy". I think I deliv ered... Sides are covered in tombstones shaped like skulls (marzipan) or chocolate I molded and spattered to look like rocks (and ate any mistakes!). BOO?
Yes, I know. The front steps broke off (fragile) and Hubby took the cake out of the fridge and let it drop to the table like it was a brick. Yeesh.
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
