Mac and cheese to grab and go:
Foods made in muffin pans make great bake-once-eat-all-week treats, from mini omelets to bacon cups. Add to your muffin pan repertoire: Macaroni and cheese lunch muffins.

And how they defend it.
Sure, there are financial perks to being partnered up. You can split living expenses. You might get a tax break. But, regardless of your relationship status, the price of a product is usually the same—unless that product is car insurance. The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) calls out the insurance companies that charge more for single people.

Don't know if it's fact but it's generally accepted that when people marry they take on the additional responsibility -- if not maturity -- of providing for another person's physical and emotional well-being.  Most people, when they begin living for something other/greater than themselves, behave in more ....  "thought-out" .... ways.  Not that they were reckless before, but now thay think twice before turning left without a green arrow light when the opening between oncoming cars is a little short.  Now they think twice before pulling onto a busy main road in front of approaching traffic from a stop at an intersecting residential outlet.  Now they actually do go a little slower in the rain.

Although anyone who's unexpectedly lost traction a few times in the rain would do this anyway.

Granted, some of it is more age than marital status but a 40-year-old bachelor isn't necessarily going to have a little angel sitting on his shoulder reminding him that his little girl really would like to see him again tonight whereas a 27-year-old Navy PO-1 has that little angel sitting on his shoulder reminding him every second of every day.  You're a safer person all around when you have someone to live for beside yourself.  And that changes the game.


Remember, with insurance companies, you're in a gambling game.  You're gambling that you'll get in an accident.  The InsCo is gambling that you won't.  If you don't, they win and you lose.  You pay them their winnings.  If you do get in an accident, you win, they pay you your winnings, which are higher because the odds are in favor of you not being in an accident.  If you're suddenly a lot safer because you now have someone to live for, that changes the odds, and the game, and they have lower winnings when you don't have an accident.

They're basically like fancy, delicious slushies.
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but it’s as hot as the dickens outside, and I cannot seem to get enough frozen foods in my mouth. Granitas, which are basically “elevated slushies,” are perhaps the easiest way to do that, and you can make them with almost any liquid.

What do you think, outdated or practical? 
Most of us go days without writing anything by hand, and when we finally need to jot something down, it looks like the writing of a third grader. Writing by hand in the digital age feels almost antiquated, but there are plenty of reasons to maintain the quality of your penmanship, or (gasp) even improve it.

practical clear printing is needed, like architects learn. i was taught in the awful Danelian method in grade school, meant to improve cursive handwriting skills but it made me worse off. i had to re-teach myself basic printing in college and it's mediocre now, at best.

Harmless fun or public health issue?
Everybody’s got an opinion on e-cigarettes: ask ten people about their safety and you’ll get ten different answers. Fierce debates can rage because there just isn’t a lot of data yet, but there are a few things experts can agree on. Let’s look at the details.

+Bill Robotham: I shouldn't have to smell ANYONE in public, except
maybe at the gym or other like physical exercise facility. Nice thing
about vapers is, they don't stink well after the fact. But using vape
on a crowded train or bus is just rude. I may not be able to get out of
the way of your vapor, and I shouldn't have to. Same goes to folks who
don't bathe as much as they should.

Disclaimer: I'm a former smoker who quit before nicotine vaporizers
came of age, so I loathe the reek smokers have. As long as I can't
smell your vape from where I'm sitting, I'm all for allowing you to do
it in public. Of course if I go to a place designated for such
activities, such as a hookah, cigar, or vape lounge, I don't mind vape,
or even smoke, for that matter. But telling me I'm wrong because I feel
you're invading my personal space in a decidedly public place? I don't
understand.

In honor of Windows 10, let's learn a bit about how Windows works.
If your Windows chops extend in any capacity beyond novice, you’ve no doubt encountered the ever-cryptic Windows Registry, DLL files, User Account Control, and other tools with seemingly dark and mysterious powers. Here, we’ll explain some of Windows’ most confusing features, so you know exactly what’s happening when you go to edit them.

They delved too greedily and too deep, and disturbed that which should have been left alone...

This learn to code book belongs on your coffee table.
These days, there’s no shortage of online resources for teaching yourself to code, but there’s also nothing like reading a good instruction book from start to finish. JavaScript & JQuery, by Jon Duckett, is perhaps the most elegant, visually engaging book you can learn JavaScript from.

You don't have to leave a job you like, but it could pay to be prepared to do so every few years:
Whether you’ve been with your employer for a while or have just been hired for a job, it’s a good idea to regularly search the job market to see what else is out there. Career Pivot recommends being prepared to switch jobs every 3 years.

"The Bing, egg, sausage, and Bing hasn't got much Bing in it!" "I don't want ANY Bing!"
Chrome: Windows 10 brings a ton of sweet new features. Among them, you can now search the web directly from the Start menu. However, it will always use Bing. The Bing2Google extension for Chrome will redirect your searches to Google instead.
