Sarah Palin in Scranton #3 She Signed My Football!
Official Gmail Blog: New in Labs: Stop sending mail you later regret
girl I had a crush on her over text message. Or the time I sent that
late night email to my ex-girlfriend that we should get back together.
Gmail can't always prevent you from sending messages you might later
regret, but today we're launching a new Labs feature I wrote called Mail
Goggles which may help.
When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you're really sure you
want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check
than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send
to verify you're in the right state of mind?

No Knead Bread, Revisited | Jaden's Steamy Kitchen - Modern Asian Recipes and Cooking
It's been almost a year since NY Times unveiled the secret to the uber-simple No-Knead Bread. And while fads come and go, this certainly is a recipe that has transcended the fickleness of foodies. It's time to revisit the bread…. as many of us have been brainwashed by this summer's ice cream! We've made close to 60 loaves since last November and I've got to tell you, it is still one of our family's favorite things to eat.
I firmly believe that every person should bake a loaf of bread at least once in their lifetime. Granted, it's easy to just drive to your local bakery to pick up a loaf, but have you ever experienced the intense joy of smelling freshly baked bread coming from your very own oven?! Foodgasmic eyes-roll-to-back-of-head, soul softly moaning as you tug a piece of warm, pillowy mound gently with your teeth….. By the way, No-Knead Bread is such a dumb name. Can't we come up with a better-sounding, sexier name than NKB? In case you'd not heard of NKB….let me tell you about it. Baking bread does sound intimidating…all that kneading and loaf-shaping business is best left to pros. But what if I told you that you don't even have to knead or shape, that it is so easy my little son makes it. This bread recipe so insanely brilliant - no sticky fingers, no doughy mess, no intricate measuring, no complicated kneading. Totally hands-off. The crust is thin, crisp and snaps as you cut into the loaf. The interior of the bread holey, chewy, airy and light. If bread could sing, this would be an angelic choir. in Dolby digital surround sound. Now, with that, how could you not try NKB? It only takes 3 minutes to mix and a wooden spoon. You can't even boil spaghetti in 3 minutes!
So, without further blabbering, I've pimped out my son to demonstrate that baking bread is so simple a
caveman 4-year old can do it.

The NBC Chimes Museum
"This is The National Broadcasting Company." These words were immediately followed by three notes - at various times struck by hand, played on a mechanized electronic music box, or generated through a vacuum tube apparatus - for several decades. The most famous sound on radio is today an abandoned trademark, but in its prime it stood for some of the very best in radio programming and entertainment. This website attempts to trace the evolution of the NBC Chimes from a simple switching cue to cultural icon, and to tell the story of other radio broadcasters who identified themselves with Deagan dinner chimes before the National Broadcasting Company even existed.
