Bake and Fill Rocks!

We tried the Bake and Fill cake thing today. Rich made a devils food cake. In the center he put in a layer of cool whip and a layer of chocolate pudding. Dude, it works!! Except all that sugar sent us into a sugar coma, but otherwise we really like that thing. We think it could be THE Christmas present this year. Who wouldn't want to bake and fill a cake?

Informercials and Rich

Had to go to Louisville last night for a conference today. So Melanie, Cathy and I took off last night and stopped at the outlet mall on our way down. Got Rich the "Betty Crocker Bake and Fill" cake pan he's been wanting since seeing the infomercial. Have you seen it? It's pretty cool. We'll let you know if it works!

Rich loves just about anything from an infomercial or home shopping channels. If it's on an infomercial, QVC or HSN - it's as good as sold. He wants
  • that really expensive multi-position folding ladder
  • the smart spin plastic spinning container thing
  • the flip and grip AND the scoop and strain
  • any giant knife set on HSN
  • any coin set on HSN

As proof of his undying love for as sold on tv junk, here's a list of things we currently own:
  • the gazelle (actually this was probably our best infomercial purchase)
  • a cheaper version of the Bowflex
  • the cold heat soldering thing
  • space bags
  • those microshaver things
  • we bought Grammy the "Owl" credit card sized magnifying glass w/light
(there's probably more, but that's all I can think of)

He's a nut!

Why do drive up bank machines have braille on their keypads?

Just wondering........

1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto, the blockage will be almost instantly removed.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables: get someone else to hold them while you chop away.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat, by simply using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives: then you will be afraid to cough.

Thanks goes to Rosie for passing along this extremely helpful advice!!! Thanks Rosie!!!!!!!!
