Get this....the Trump campaign ripped off Obama's inaugural cake. Who does that? Too funny!

UPDATE This was posted by the bakery (Buttercream Bakeshop):
Excited to share the cake we got to make for one of last night's inaugural balls. While we most love creating original designs, when we are asked to replicate someone else's work we are thrilled when it is a masterpiece like this one. @duff_goldman originally created this for Obama's inauguration 4 years ago and this years committee commissioned us to re-create it. Best part is all the profits are being donated to @humanrightscampaign, one of our favorite charities who we have loved working with over the years. Because basic human rights are something every man, woman and child~ straight, gay or the rainbow in between~ deserve!

The picture that is emerging is very very alarming (to use Trump's own vernacular). If Trump is not personally directing this behavior, then we have staff members with autonomy to act on his behalf that are absolutely tone dead regarding the appearance and implications of their actions. First the Melania jewelry 'ad' on the Whitehouse page, and now this.

Trump is a social media driven guy and he should know how this looks. He spoke out about media coverage while at the CIA (with a backdrop of the wall of fallen CIA operatives) and he had his press secretary give his initial briefing to the press to complain about press reports comparing attendance at his inauguration to both the Obama inauguration and the protest marches on Jan 21.

PSA, if you have a few pennies to spare, David could use some help.

Happy Holidays!
 
  Dear everyone I'm  at my last straw. I have set up a gofundme account. I need a new car desperately. Right now I'm using my roommates  car too much and I can't continue to do that. I need my own car to pack miles onto and not worry about driving someone else's car. I need to start visiting my mom more often her health is not all that good, it's 3 hour drive to her place from mine and having a car will have huge impact on my depression.  With what I make it will take me years to come up with a down payment. I'm asking anybody that can to please help. If you could do 10 or 20 dollars, or whatever you can,  thank yous wouldn't be enough to express my gradatud.  If not I understand, however if you can here is the link. Please and thank you !

Please help, I didn't make it to my family Christmas this year because I do not have reliable car. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to spend Christmas with my mom. She lives 4 hours away, and the scary thing is that her health is not all that great. Thank you and I hope everyone has a happy your holiday

I kind of want to be her best friend. That's my kind of trolling.

Apparently you need to cook up about 2lbs of bacon to have enough bacon fat for these cookies but I hear it's worth it!
The former New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn is also an accomplished home baker (Not many of us food writers are also sleek fashion plates, so her kitchen prowess is all the more impressive.) This recipe is based on Swedish ginger cookies, a Scandinavian-American tradition in her hometown, Coshocton, Ohio, but it is also the cookie equivalent of a Chanel suit: updated, modern, but ultimately a familiar take on a classic The flavors are tr...

Story
Introduction
I am silly, fun-loving and tactile. I wear glasses. I have freckles across the back of my shoulders.

I am stubborn, loyal and creative. I like Monty Python.

I am a geek, a traveler, a food snob, a reader, a woman, a child, a lover and a gamer.

I love to travel. I love to stay at home. I am ambitious, I am a dreamer, I am a visionary, I am lazy, I am unmotivated. I want to live off of the land and be wholly self-sufficient, and yet...I love technology.

I can't refuse chocolate. I want to be thin and healthy but I don't need to be a Barbie doll.

I am sarcastic, witty and I like puns.

I love to read. I read sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, classic literature, suspense, biographies, poetry, satire, editorials, and anything else that catches my eye, including the back of the cereal box.

I love music.  I was raised on musicals, classical and Queen. Some favorites include Warren Zevon, Robert Earl Keene, King Crimson, XTC just to name a few.

I like movies, and have fairly simple criteria for what makes a movie good; either it makes me cry, it makes me laugh, it makes me think, or it hits so close to home it's painful. And then there's the occasional things that just grab me for reasons I can't even pinpoint, like Goonies, The Princess Bride, Unbreakable and RHPS. And, of course, the Lord of the Rings movies and the Harry Potter movies.

I don't watch a lot of TV. Most of the things I've loved are no longer showing, things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, X-Files, Angel and Dollhouse. If you love something don't let me watch it. I am the death knell to good shows.

I like Iron Chef, and most anything on the Food Network. I'm a Food Network, History Channel, and Discovery Channel junkie. I dare not even watch those channels for fear of getting sucked in for the entire day!

I love the theater, ballet, and opera. Shakespeare in particular.

I love power tools.

I believe in faeries, dragons, integrity, friendship, beauty, honesty, open-mindedness, laughter, equality, pride, education, self-responsibility, animal rights, magic, embracing your inner child, introspection, loyalty, and love.

I love thunderstorms, candlelight, sushi, oysters, the ocean, music, flouncy dresses, Cherry Dr Peppers, rain, bonfires, Europe, intellectual stimulation, hot showers, full body massages, bookstores, nonconformists, gemstones (especially garnets), huge fluffy bath towels, women not afraid of their own intellect, tea, genuine people, and coffee.

I loathe willful ignorance, Microsoft (okay, I just get frustrated with MS, I don't really hate them), habitual cattiness, betrayal, meanness, pretentiousness, censorship, dishonesty, animal abuse, trendy boy bands, repression of minorities, conformity, Bush (the "president," not the band or the body part), shallowness, misogyny, hypocritical Christians (redundant?), intolerance, stupid prejudices (race, religion, gender, sexuality), pettiness, organized religion, duplicity, cowardice, supposition, blatant hypocrisy,reality TV and the fact that I've read every Xanth novel ever written.

The Boboli Gardens, located behind the Pitti Palace, are definitely worth your time. The Gardens are a vast network of meandering paths that lead to a myriad of discoveries. There are so many hidden treasures in the Gardens that make it a delight to wander. There are gorgeous sculptures, a beautiful pond, hidden buildings and breathtaking vistas. The only thing to note is that it's not an easy climb for the handicapped. The path is accessible but you'll need a strong pair of arms to push a wheelchair up the steep hill. It's a lovely walk, though, so if you can make it, by all means, do!

St. Mark's Square, otherwise known as the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy, is the home to the incredibly beautiful St. Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Constructed in the ninth century, St. Mark's Square is the main attraction area for Venice and the largest square. The separate campanile (bell tower) stands over 300 ft tall. Take the elevator to the top for a magnificent view of Venice. Trust me, it's worth the wait.

ZàZà is a great find. Located just steps away from the Mercato Centrale, ZàZà can easily accommodate a large family or just a few. They have a varied menu to meet everyone's palate. I have had everything from their pizza to their crab pasta and have yet to be disappointed!

I have to say, I LOVE the Mercato Centrale and I make it a point to visit every time we are in Italy. The downstairs is a plethora of vendors. From fresh cheeses, meats, fish, fowl, fresh fruits, wines, olive oils and a few interspersed coffee stands. It is a glorious experience. Upstairs you'll find a cooking school. Always check the schedule for available classes if you're interested in learning to cook Italian food. There are also a ton of restaurants to wander through. Find the food that most appeals, grab a table and a waiter will come to you for drinks. It's a wonderful experience and you could easily spend a day just wandering through. I like to end my trip there as well as it's a wonderful place to stock up on a few gifts to take home for friends and family!

If you love jewelry shopping, the Ponte Vecchio is THE place to visit while in Florence. The jewelry shops line the bridge from one end to the other on both sides. You'll find every type of jewelry from gold to silver to rose gold. From cameos to modern jewelry and from famous name brands such as Cartier to lesser known and more affordable brands. The bridge itself is the last remaining medieval bridge in the world. In the center you can stop for a photo opportunity and to admire other bridges along the Arno river. The bridge has been rebuilt three times with the original dating back to ancient Rome. It even survived WWII. It's a wonderful shopping experience on a beautiful historic bridge. If you're in Florence you should definitely make the time to visit.

We went to I' Giuggiolo on the recommendation of a friend who is from Florence. As we were visiting over Christmas we were a bit concerned about Christmas dinner. It turns out that many Italian restaurants are open for big family Christmas lunches but reservations are a MUST. Thankfully, my friend made sure to get us reservations, especially since there were 9 of us! The menu was fantastic and each of our meals were delectable. Since we didn't have a car we were able to catch the bus pretty easily. Unfortunately by the time we left the bus service had stopped running. Fortunately, the restaurant staff was kind enough to call us a couple of taxis. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, the food was fabulous and the staff so kind and helpful!

The Hotel De' Medici was a lovely hotel with a wonderful location in Florence. It was an easy walk to the Duomo of Florence and an easy walk to the train station or even the Ponte Vecchio. Breakfast each morning was delicious though a bit packed but they are currently expanding their dining room. We traveled as a family of nine and they were able to accommodate our various room needs with ease. The staff was wonderful and answered all our emails ahead of time without delay and with attention to detail. The room were large for Europe and nicely appointed with good linens and closet space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return again.
