Never Too Late For Thanks

Last night I learned that my Uncle Charlie, my dad's older brother, passed away after suffering from ALS. ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, seriously messes with a person's neurological pathways, and is what ended Lou Gehrig's baseball career, and eventually killed him. I have had no contact with my uncle for well over 18 years, ever since before my mom, dad, and I moved from Philadelphia to Washington State, and therefore I have no real idea of how badly he, or his immediate family, suffered because of it.


Recently, Facebook provided me the opportunity to reconnect with some extended family members I had otherwise lost touch with. I tried to find my cousin, "little" Charlie, Uncle Charlie's son. He was just two years older than me. I actually found his profile less than a year ago, only to find out from my aunt that he had just passed away, in his mid-thirties.


Death of a family member, even one whom you have no recent connection to...is weird. I hope this …

Pudding Shots Shots Shots Shots- Part 2

First of all, pudding shots are unmatched when it comes to adult desserts. If you have yet to try these delectable delights the winter holidays are just around the corner and pudding shots would be the perfect addition for any gathering. Seriously.

For basic instructions I suggest going to my original post, Pudding Shots=Amazing. I also highly suggest heading to Costco for some supplies. Costco sells little 2 oz portion cups and lids separately, Dixie Cups and Lids. Personally, I think a volume of 1200 is a worthwhile investment.

Enjoy responsibly.
