from the time I was 12, I babysat, I was a "mother's helper" and I was a newspaper carrier... when I turned 16 I got a job as  cashier at the Waldbaums supermarket -- that was back in the days when you had to read the price tags and ring in the prices, and figure out the change all by  yourself

Watching Martha Stewart do things has a very calming effect on me.

During the summer between high school and college (1975)  I worked at a government miltary subcontracter in the drafting department.  I took the blueprints and usingeh special acmera we photographed them and reduced them to mictofiche copies in key punch cards (remember them?) and tehm work teh key punch to code the cards and then file them away



we were working on a radar system for the space shuttle


so in a miniscule way I was part of the US space exploration project

Today was cookie making day.  I did rum balls, pressed spritz sugar cookies, and oatmeal chocolate chip.  I also tried a Martha Stewart gingerbread man recipe, but they came out more cake-like than hard cookie-like--too delecate in texture to make gingerbread men that would remain intact until Christmas.  So I made just plain round cookies with the rest of the batter.

All cookies are now wrapped and packed safely away from my sweet tooth...

I believe Martha Stewart has two different gingerbread cookie/men recipes...

Could it have been your oven temps? Your butter? Your flour? Maybe there was a bit too much baking powder and/or soda? ???

I'm feeling fine, DR vixmom. -Thanks for asking.

I think I will start a new tradition and make one hand-made ornament for my tree every year.  It would have been nice if I thought of this idea twenty-five years ago, but what the hey, right?

One type of cookie that my sister and I liked making when we were kids was a stained glass window cookie.  Using a sugar cookie dough, you cut shapes with holes in the center, then dropped colored sugar in the holes when the cookies were on the baking sheet.  The colored sugar melts when baking and makes a "stained glass" in the center.  They were very cool looking (especially when we got creative and made shapes like peace signs.)  Trouble was, no one really wanted to eat them, and if anyone did, they would have to break the cookie away from the stained glass parts, which was usually thrown away.  I guess they are probably only meant for display, like gingerbread houses...

I love(d) those stained-glass cookies! -And I would eat the stained-glass part.

I don't think I ever used colored sugars for the "glass". Instead, I usually used crushed sour balls or Lifesavers.

I've also found that it helps to let gingerbread cookie dough sit for a while - even overnight - before rolling and baking it.  -If that helps...

Urp! Yep, you're right--we used Lifesavers.  The colored sugar was for general cookie decorating.

I had potential great news for cast album lovers - I'd say it looks like it's about ninety percent certain and we'll just be pending approval this week - but if it happens we'll have three great UK cast albums to release very soon.

I hope one of them is the Laurence Harvey production of CAMELOT!

Yeah, my mom would do that with all her cookie dough whenever she made the "good" cookies.  When my sister and I made them, we would do everything in one day, but our cookie-making was basically a Christmas time activity.  I guess I'm still in that way of thinking.

To go out for a walk or hike I can wear six to seven layers plus the scarf, hat & gloves.  One of those layers is a vest, the other a sweatshirt with a hood to pull up over my hat. 

Anything like Randy's snowsuite from "A Christmas Story"??

I have returned from my 2.5 hour work session with naked Hercules Zak Stains, who was in his pajamas. We've now gone through the original McGlinn inventory lists of things he sold to the Library of Congress in 1998 with the LoC inventory of what he actually sent them. On Thursday we will pull the music he didn't ship to them, the crook!

The music I sent to the baritone for theJanuary recording session arrived today, so Jonathan Michie is now set to go. That and my work with Zak were the two good things to happen today; everything else was really off-kilter. The wife-beating Mexican on the fourth floor gave me hell in the basement about not speaking to him on the street and my comment was "when did you see me on the street?" What I wanted to say was, why would I want to upset you, you vicious turd? You're a wife-beating piece of viciousness and you terrify me."

The cast album releases are not recent and none of them have ever been available on CD before - it's really exciting, actually, and one of them, I think, will have people over the moon.  And the other two aren't chopped liver.  I love these UK cast albums - two of them are London productions of US musicals, and one isn't.

Ooooh!!! 1776, maybe?

:o

YES, PLEASE!!!! ;D

My grandmother and then my Mom used to make wonderful cookies every Christmas

It was a almond cresecent- it was full of butter, chopped almonds, and shaped lieka crescent moon,  After it was baked they would rollt hem in confectioners sugar -

absolutely delicous

These sound exactly like what my (German) mom makes every year.  They are delicious!
