    I made some brownies last night using bittersweet chocolate chips which get melted with the butter and then added to the eggs and sugar.) There are 4 egges, almost 2 cubes of butter, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, vanilla, and only 1/2 cup of flour in the recipe. This recipe makes a very dense fudgey brownie. My brother liked them better than the cocoa brownies and then told me that he had signed up for the potluck at work to bring dessert. He then asked if I would mind making a batch. No problem I said. Can I make two pans he asked? OK. (the pans are 9" square pans). Then he said,, well some of the guys have been asking if you would make some with walnuts. ( I have made a few batches of cookies and brownies and my brother has taken them to work.). OK I said. Now I am making 4 pans of brownies, 2 with and 2 without walnuts. I don't mind. I am happy to do it for him and he is buying the supplies. You just have to love the subtle way men go about getting something.

    I just got off the phone with a friend living in northern Minnesota near the Canadian border. He said that since early this morning the snow is nearly waist high and is still falling.
    The temperature is dropping and is at about 15 degrees and the north wind is increasing to near gale force.
    His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare.
    He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in.

    I must commend you for not posting videos of people watching their home burn, like some others gleefully would.

    As to your video, Fruitloop you are just a little goofy. Seems to be a nice kind of goofy so, go forth and be goofy sanity is highly overrated anyhow.

    Default This Should Do The Trick!

    British boy's chimney designed with Santa in mind

    Reuters December 20, 2011 12:06 PM

    A worried letter from six-year old Leo Park sparked a mammoth operation to test what is believed to be the world's first chimney specifically designed to accommodate Santa Claus.

    The little boy's parents are having a house custom built and when Leo viewed the plans he was concerned that the chimney wasn't big enough for Father Christmas and his famous belly that shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly.

    As he was penning his traditional letter to Santa, Leo decided to also write a heartfelt missive about the chimney design problem to Jeremy Paxton, who owns the estate on which the new house is being built.

    In childish scrawl the letter reads: "Dear Mr Paxton, I am worried that my mummy's house does not have a big enough chimney. I think Santa Claus will get stuck. Please can you help. Love Leo Park."

    Paxton, founder and owner of luxury holiday home development Lower Mill Estate in the southwestern English region of the Cotswolds decided to commission a special formula to satisfy Leo's concerns.

    Obviously size was the key consideration to ensure Santa won't get wedged tight on his way to stuffing the stockings and so Paxton enlisted a mathematician to take on the challenge and save the jolly old elf from turning red for the wrong reasons.

    The Santa-friendly formula looked at risk factors of chimney entry, the size of St Nick's girth versus the width of the chimney at its narrowest point.

    To test what they said was the perfect chimney, Paxton enlisted the help of a stand-in Santa Claus in full padded outfit, a crane, a harness and winch to put the new chimney through its paces.

    Leo was invited to watch as the great experiment got underway.

    "Go on Santa" he shouted out as the faux Father Christmas was lifted into the air towards the chimney.

    A few seconds later and Santa was successfully lowered into the chimney of the half-built house, re-emerging shortly after to deliver a hearty: "Ho Ho Ho."

    "I can guarantee that this chimney is big enough for Santa and all the presents," he told Leo.

    An excited Leo gave a thumbs up to the St. Nicholas impersonator and rushed to hug him.

    "I'm absolutely delighted not just that Santa fitted into the chimney, but that that little boy, Leo, said to me: 'That was the best day of my life' which made the whole thing worthwhile," said Paxton.

    The Park family won't be able to inhabit their new holiday home until next December, just in time to get the milk and biscuits ready for their very special Yuletide visitor.

    He is goofy, but for better or worse he is ours. Mr. Little Debbie can't hold a candle to Fruitloop. (which is a good thing becuase no one likes brunt Fruit loops!)

    Thanks, I was getting worried.

    I already lost another old friend, our age, last week up near him, in Maryland.
