If Cortana really answers like this, it almost makes me want a Windows phone. Almost. Well, sort of. Love my Android.
If nothing else, the digital assistant in Windows Phone 8.1 proves she’s more fun than Siri and Google Now put together.

Check out my Swanson Vitamin and natural health food stuff review, grab the $5 off code (only good if you've never ordered from Swanson) and use the code DLRDISC to get $10 off of $50.

I finished up my annual TurboTax review. I don't know if this is my 10th or 11th review, I've lost track. I still really like TurboTax, although Deluxe users will have to upgrade to Premier to get capital gains reporting. The Free Federal Edition is now more free than ever! See my review to see what I mean.

About 20 years ago, I learned that the stock market is based a whole lot on emotion. I've been able to use that to some degree to build a decent retirement portfolio. But, the last two years have been nuts. I've made some profits, but seeing at all the red in that portfolio now when that portfolio is based on a lot of research on my part to find strong, forward-looking companies with tells me it's not emotion or logic dictating stock prices, it's morons.

So, I needed some gluten free chocolate frosting for the yellow cake I brought to the farm where we board our horse today for our Sunday pot luck, and I remembered this old trick for gluten free chocolate frosting. Seriously, you can NOT get lazier than this. Enjoy!
The chocolate frosting has one ingredient. It's gluten free and makes chocolate frosting easy enough for the laziest of gluten free cooks!

Ate two bowls of this awesomely dee-lish stuff tonight. If you don't like much heat in your food, use mild Rotel.
Cheesy Rotel Casserole Recipe is gluten free, a family favorite and full of protein.
