The Mother Load of Desserts...

I was searching for some ideas on what to do w/ Fried apples for the holidays. I typed in a search and this came up. A 23lb cake that's $175 dollars made in a bakery in Houston,Texas called the Three Brothers Bakery. It's called a Pumpecapple Piecake. It's so popular they aren't making anymore until Dec 2nd. They ask to put an order in via email. Okay now click this link below and see why there is such a fuss about this dessert. I' going to have to find something else to make, because this is out of my baking range.... I'd pitch in w/ others to get one to try. Would you? Click the link to see it first. .

Pumpecapple Piecake - Three Brothers Bakery

I think I'd have this for my holiday meal. If you're going to 'BE BAD' may as well do it full force. The holidays only come around once a year thank goodness for my waist band and bank account! Happy Holidays! May They Rock!
These look/sound yummy too..

Taylor Swift On Top Of Herself

Just when you thought things couldn't get any better for Taylor Swift, she now is the first woman in 50 years to replace herself at number one on Billboard's Hot 100. That's right. Taylor's "Shake It Off" held the number one spot only to get topped by her latest release, "Blank Space." Why can't I be number one? I sing really good at karaoke but nobody says, "Hey UB you sing better than Taylor Swift?" People go on about Taylor this and Taylor that. It's always TALOR, TAYLOR, TAYLOR!

I lost 5 pounds the other day and can now fit into a size 10 dress but does anyone tell me, "Hey UB, you sure look hot in a chubby kinda way?" No. They just ask if I've heard the new TS album or if they can have some of my extra-large, double-cheese supreme pizza and I'm like, "Hell no!"

It's just not fair that some girls have all the luck while all I have right now are the cramps. Ugh! TALOR, TAYLOR, TAYLOR!

A Realistically Proportioned Fashion Doll

There's been a lot of pushback recently against the unrealistic proportions of Barbie dolls.

Except for those women who slave away to look like human Barbies, real women simply don't look like that.

So how would a "realistically proportioned fashion doll" fare in today's toy market?

Toy designer Nikolay Lamm aims to find out, with Lammily, a doll based on the proportions of the average 19-year-old woman.

To add to the realism, Lammily comes with stick-on tattoos, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and more.

Check out the video of a bunch of school kids getting to meet Lammily and compare her to a normal Barbie doll. It's pretty interesting...

"America Loves You"

Give Jay Leno a hand.

He recently visited Afghanistan, performing for the troops in a USO show.

He came home wanting to do more. So he and the folks at The Today Show selected an active service member who was also a wounded warrior, and gave him a joy ride to remember.

Check out the video as Jay drove Corporal Ethan Laberge on the back roads around Fort Campbell, Kentucky in a brand-new 2015 Dodge HRT Hellcat - the muscle car of muscle cars.

And at the end of the ride...

You just have to watch it for yourself. And grab a hankie.

Fearsome Foursome

I just stumbled on this video - it's been floating around cyberspace for a few months - but it's mesmerizing.

The quartet is called Salut Salon - based in Hamburg, Germany, they mix classical music with some comedic stylings.

Playing another's instrument with her own bow, playing the piano upside down, playing their stringed instruments inverted...

They never miss a step or skip a note. Watch it once, and tell me that's enough!

Even Worse Than Misfit, These Toys Are Bad

A consumer advocacy group called WATCH - World Against Toys Causing Harm - this week issued its list of the Ten Worst Toys of 2014.

The worst, according to WATCH, is the Air Storm Firetek Bow, which can shoot arrows up to 145 feet.

There's also the Catapencil, an actual pencil with a slingshot at the top - surefire classroom fun right there.

A Battle Hammer designed for three-year-olds - the ones who think they're Thor, I guess.

The SWAT Electric Machine Gun was in the middle of the list. Surprising, really, when you consider the manufacturer's warning that it could be mistaken for the real thing by law enforcement personnel.

You can check out the full list in this article in The Daily Mail.

And check out the video of the press conference...

Spielberg? Or Squirrel?

This one's a commercial just waiting to happen.

Someone left his GoPro camera on the ground near a tree.

A curious squirrel approached and decided he must have the GoPro - or, he mistook it for a shiny nut.

Either way, the squirrel nabbed the camera and scooted up a tree with it.

The footage is pretty amazing, even when the squirrel drops it to the ground.

Could be the rodent version of Stephen Spielberg here...

One Winner Means Lots of Losers

On Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, Jimmy got to break the news that Chris Hemsworth is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.

So, he's the winner.

Which means, every other man on the planet is the loser.

Like Jason Bateman, who thought he'd been invited to appear on Kimmel's show because he was going to get the award.

To make him feel better, Jimmy let Jason read his acceptance speech, which he'd prepared in anticipation of winning the award.

(For the record, Jason's an underrated comic actor...)

Seven Feet & Counting

Parts of Buffalo and upstate New York were positively buried in a storm some are calling Snovember early this week.

But that doesn't stop the train that is professional sport from rolling, does it?

On Tuesday, the night of the storm, 6200 fans made it out to see the Buffalo Sabres in action.

And now, the Buffalo Bills and the NFL are looking for some help, digging Ralph Wilson Stadium out from under the snow in time for the Bills to play the New York Jets over the weekend.
  If you do well, they could pick up your option for future storms and years. Who knows? You could be a Hall of Fame Shoveler at some point in your future.

Meanwhile, if you want to get a sense of what it's like to be in the middle of something like that, check out this drone's-eye view of the event...

She's Too Young For the Club, and By the Way...

"Hello, Tyga? There's a reality check waiting to be picked up at the front desk."

Here's one straight out of the pages of Yeah, I Know It's a Law But Not For Me, RIght?

Tyga, the 25-year-old musician, was supposed to play at a club called Greystone Manor in West Hollywood. He begged the club management to allow his 17-year-old girlfriend, Kylie Jenner - one of the offspring of Mamadashian - to attend the show.

The management refused, because it's a 21+ establishment.

So Tyga pull a no-show, managing to tick off a sponsor big time.

Maybe it's a math problem. Who needs to figure out that Kylie has to wait another four years to get into the club because of the laws that govern places that sell booze.

And while we're at it, memo to Kris and Bruce Jenner: a 25-year-old rapper is dating your 17-year-old daughter.

Look for those Parents of the Year trophies, mailed to your separate homes in the next six to eight weeks.
