My Bath and Body Works Shopping Experience During the Pandemic

Wondering what it’s like shopping at Bath and Body Works during the pandemic? Here’s my experience at Bath and Body Works during the pandemic and how I’ll likely will stick to shopping online until this is over. Ok, soooooo….. Bath and Body Works opened in New York a few short weeks ago but I avoided going to stores because I was still feeling pretty paranoid about going into stores and I was also seeing long lines due to the fact that Semi-Annual Sale had started and I was really not wanti...

I knew this was coming, and I'm expecting a lot more of this: "Let’s Scrap the Presidential Debates."

That particular example is by Elizabeth Drew and appears in the NYT today. I haven't read this yet, but I anticipate that it will not admit to a motivation to shield Biden from a test of his mental acuity:The debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership. In fact, one could argue that they reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president. When we were serious about the presidency, we wanted intelligence, thoughtfulness, knowledge, empathy and, to be sure, likabi...

Comment on corn, cheddar and scallion strata by Diane

I made the strata using frozen roasted corn from Trader Joe’s and two-day old sourdough baguette. It was delicious. I halved the recipe and may have goofed on halving the salt because I found it a bit salty for my taste. Nonetheless, it’s all gone and I will make it again. It would be a great addition to a Thanksgiving menu since the frozen corn worked so well. Can’t wait to try out your spinach strata.

The simple productivity hack Steve Jobs used to hone Apple's focus and set the company on the path toward its $1.9 trillion valuation

Steve Jobs launched two of the most valuable companies — Apple and Pixar. Successful leaders like Google cofounder Larry Page and former Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang both went to Jobs for leadership advice.  Jobs believed that smart leaders will focus on only one goal each year, instead of making a list of what they want to achieve.  Concentrating on one goal at a time can allow leaders to obtain greater focus, Jobs said.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In the fall of 2007, newly...

Joe Biden buries the hatchet and looks to bring in Kamala Harris as running mate

On Friday night, supporters of Joe Biden received an urgent message from his campaign email address. But it wasn’t from the Democrat presidential nominee. It was from Kamala Harris. Underneath a picture of herself, the California senator wrote: “I know Joe’s heart, and I’ve seen first-hand his compassion and dedication to public service. He’ll be a president for all of us, and I’m giving everything I’ve got to help him succeed this year.” It was a further signal, if one were needed, that Ms Harr...

Newly surfaced emails show how ruthlessly Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Google built their businesses and ate up smaller companies

New documents surfaced through a Congressional investigation into Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook show how the companies pursued acquisitions and fought off perceived competitors.  The documents provide a rare glimpse into the actions taken by top executives including Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs at crucial moments for their company.

The world on a billionaire’s budget

The world's wealthiest are prospering. As of February 2017, there were about 2,000 billionaires in the world. This micro-elite controls over US$7.6 trillion, an increase of 18 percent from 2016. A billionaire's spending power is difficult to grasp, both because most people do not correctly intuit large numbers, and because a billion dollars far outstrips most people's experience. What does a household budget look like to a billionaire? To find out, let's scale down a billionaire's income t...

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn welcomes chaos in season of uncertainty

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn was blunt when he said it’s been chaotic since he entered the team’s facility last week, but he welcomed the chaos because that’s likely the best way to operate under the NFL’s new coronavirus protocols. “Definitely not normal,” Lynn told reporters Wednesday in his first Zoom interview of training camp. “I mean, every day it’s been different. It’s chaos, and we’re going to have to welcome chaos this year, because if you can’t adapt to change, you’re going to struggle....

Comment on salted brown butter crispy treats by JP

In reply to Anna. I made these with Trader Joe’s Rice Cereal, too, and was so surprised at how different they turned out compared to Kellogg’s. These were so much whiter (the cereal itself is almost white so add that to the marshmallow/butter mix-even with browned butter) and denser. We ate them all and they were good but just not what I had expected having always used a different cereal. I do like the extra browned butter addition. In a 9” square pan, my bars were squares.

Comment on pasta with pesto genovese by Elle

It’s SO hot & humid here in VA & I wanted pesto the other night to finish a serving of cooked, unsauced radiatore in the fridge. I’m also the laziest cook on the planet, so therefore the queen of shortcuts. I swirled a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil and a little Earth Balance margarine on a plate and warmed in the microwave. I put a sprinkling of Trader Joe’s California garlic powder & some dehydrated chopped onion on that & added two Trader Joe’s frozen pesto cubes. Nuked lightly aga...

Systemic racism in progressive California

Not long ago, George Floyd’s killing was universally condemned and people across the planet elevated the problems faced by minorities in America for examination. The time was right for constructive debates and policy changes. But as usual, the moment of unity soon devolved into nonsense. Fast forward a bit and you have the “woke” destroying statues of abolitionists and waging crusades against Trader Joe’s salsa names. Instead of a focus on reducing police abuse, improving the lives of minorities...
