Living Gluten Free for Dummies is the best book to read when you're starting out on with a gluten free diet. This book was extremely helpful after I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance.
This book review explains how Living Gluten Free for Dummies is full of advice that makes it easier to change over to a gluten free lifestyle.

Check out the Mac deals!
 
The Apple refurb store has some of the best deals available on fully warrantied Macs. A 4K Retina iMac and a MacBook Pro caught our eye this week.

Oh, shhhhazbot! Why did they think the weather has been consistently cold enough to create ice thick enough to hold the weight of vehicles?
The Lake Geneva Fire Department said 15 vehicles went through the ice on Geneva Lake Saturday afternoon.

I've heard a few dads complain about the dads-are-inept attitude. My husband is one of them. I think some men and some couples use this prevailing un-wisdom to do what works for them, but that's another story in psychology. I'm just saying that it's ridiculous to assume a dad can't play with children, change diapers, prepare meals and administer fruit snacks  when necessary.
Recently I got chatting with a nice lady in the queue at the supermarket. (Because when the highlight of your Friday evening is browsing a frozen food aisle, you’ll talk to everyone.) As I loaded a...

Need a great recipe for a Super Bowl party? Bacon Cheese Potatoes are always a big hit. Mmmmm..... bacon!
Bacon cheese potatoes cook up perfectly in a slow cooker with cheddar cheese, onions and bacon. Everyone loves this recipe, you won't have left overs.

"There are two basic paths for the future of wearable tech – either the machines will end up inside us, or we will end up inside the machines – but either way, the hybrid man-machine future is closer than we might think."
New tech products include exoskeletons, portable mind monitors and smart textiles.

As military leaders recommend that women be required to register for the draft, the GAO wonders if the draft is even still necessary.   #draft   #selectiveservice  
The Government Accountability Office examines whether the U.S. still needs a military draft and the Selective Service System.

After doing a lot of research to edit and rewrite a guide to buying antivirus software, I've come to the conclusion that I need Malwarebytes. This software runs with antivirus software to detect and remove difficult to find root kits and other menaces that A/V software can overlook. I think this is important, so I'm passing the information along.

This is worthy of an "in case you missed it" share. Whether you need a great dish for a Super Bowl party or you just want to have sufficient nom-nom snackage for the fam during the game, this cheesy bacony goodness is a recipe that must be made. #SuperBowl

The feed on Pinterest has really been bugging me. The algorithm is assuming that I don't want much variety. Sick of "suggested for you" pins. I'm going to try changing some settings, but doubt it will do much. Is there a good alternative to Pinterest? 
If you've noticed Pinterest feed changes messing up your experience, we've some tips on how to fix it - and a lot of thoughts on why you really can't.
