Open Mike: Apex Products

["Open Mike" is the often off-topic, anything-goes Editorial page of TOP, wherein Mike scats and vamps and riffs off the top of his pointy head. When all is right with the world, it appears on Wednesdays.] - Thomas Riley Marshall, Vice President of the United States under Woodrow Wilson, was presiding over the Senate—one of the VP's duties in our country—when he was forced to listen one day to a litany of complaints from various Senators about what was wrong about America. When it came his tur...

Parole request for Manson follower Leslie Van Houten goes before appeals panel

LOS ANGELES — An appeals panel in downtown Los Angeles heard arguments Wednesday but made no immediate ruling on Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten’s latest attempt to be released on parole. A parole board has recommended the 69-year-old Van Houten’s release from prison three times. Former Gov. Jerry Brown twice reversed the recommendation and Gov. Gavin Newsom is now expected to take up the matter. Arguing before a three-judge panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal, Van Houten’s attor...

Menu Plan Monday ~ April 22/19 Weekly Dinner Inspiration

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday! Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Holidays are hard for me because we don’t live near family which makes me sad. We also don’t normally get together with friends because they are all busy with their own extended families. So our holidays are usually pretty quiet and boring. This year though my middle son who is away at college surprised me by coming home for the weekend. I totally wasn’t expecting it and it totally cheered me up! Recipe H...

The Beloved Disciple

by Charles LaFond     This is the first Icon I ever had written by an Athonite friend whose icons I have always loved and of which I have requested a dozen originals over these 20 years of priestly ministry. Don’t be impressed.  The purchases represent money I should have invested for retirement.  Also they correctly indicate that my love for Jesus is only matched by my love of shopping.   In the early morning as I drink my coffee or tea and wake up into a new day, the rising sun’s early glow r...

REVIEW: Triscuit Woven with Seeds Crackers

Triscuit has a new line of crackers with seeds in them. Yes, IN them and not as a topping for fancy Triscuit recipes that has ingredients that aren’t readily available in most home kitchens. How are they made? Simply. That’s what the side of the box says — Made Simply. The process, which is also on the side of the box goes like this: cook the wheat, shred and weave the wheat together with seeds, and bake to golden perfection. Okay, I still don’t understand how it’s done, but it probably involve...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I may have cancer, but you’re not getting rid of me

Back when my mother was alive, she got throat cancer from smoking 18 packs of cigarettes a day for 40 years. Funny how that happens. Anyway, while she had cancer (which, greatly to her surprise, did not kill her), she turned into a totally different person. She refused to stand in line. She would just barge to the front of the line at the movie theater or anywhere else and tell the gatekeepers, “I can’t wait in this line. I have cancer.’” And, here’s the thing: They always let her through. I’m n...

INTUIT QUICKBOOKS: Using Built-In Templates to Communicate with Your Customers, Vendors, and Employees

One of the best-kept secrets in QuickBooks is that it contains dozens of pre-made letters you can use to communicate with your customers, vendors, or employees. One of the things I cover in my Quickbooks classes is templates.   For customers, templates include everything from collection and bounced check letters to an apology or approval/denial of credit. Vendor letters include a request for credit or a charge dispute. And using these templates, you ca...

Spring + Summer Diffuser Blends

‘Come Closer’ Movie Adaptation Coming From ‘Black Mirror’ and ‘Hannibal’ Director David Slade

Sara Gran‘s delectably creepy novel Come Closer is getting the big screen treatment, thanks to filmmaker David Slade. Slade has a long history with the horror genre, having helmed 30 Days of Night, Hard Candy, and episodes of Hannibal and Black Mirror (and also, uh, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), so tasking him with adapting this truly scary book is a nice choice.  The novel concerns a young, successful woman who slowly starts to become unhinged, and begins to suspect she’s possessed by a demon. ...

Comment on plush coconut cake by Rosemary

I baked this yesterday as a vegan option for a meeting. Baked in a 9 inch pan, added 1tsp of vanilla, and used reduced fat coconut milk. The texture of the cake was moist but the flavor was off. It tasted too floury and bready (?) somehow, like eating raw dough. My cake tester came out clean so I don’t think it was underdone. Just not my favorite.

Book Review: Wise Guy, by Guy Kawasaki

If you’ve spent any time in marketing or business development, you’ve certainly heard of Guy Kawasaki. You might think of him as the ex-Apple guy, or perhaps the first person you ever knew to hold the title “Chief Evangelist” as a professional job. You might have seen him speak at an event, or heard about his famous 10-20-30 pitch rule: “no more than 10 slides, not using anything smaller than a 30-point font, and keeping presentation time to 20 minutes.” But do you know anything about his journe...

Before Wallis - Edward VIII's Other Women ~ Rachel Trethewey

First things first, I must now confess to a complete blank on the lineage of the House of Windsor. What a disgrace. Well, the early days of the House of Windsor that is, created in 1917 to break with any prior associations with Germany... but who exactly were the brothers and sisters, the children of King George V and Queen Mary? I've sorted it out now but I can't believe I had never really paid attention and understood the place of Dukes of Gloucester and Kent in the grand Windsor scheme o...

Watch 66 Oscar-Nominated-and-Award-Winning Animated Shorts Online, Courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada

I recently heard someone quip that proposals to cut the Academy Awards are tantamount to suggesting that the NFL trim down the Super Bowl. Certainly for many who would rather watch the former any day of the week, even the play-by-play of technical categories repay attention. Yet people who think of the Oscars like a major sporting event, with big stars and blockbusters going head-to-head, can still value the show as more than pure spectacle. How else, for example, would most of us learn abo...

Spirit Lifters.

A Big Moon coming. I put a a few sprigs of rosemary in an old sake bottle. I saved the blue bottle from nice sushi dinner a few months back. I saved the rosemary before the freeze moved in, around and about the same time. I used the rosemary for cooking, over time, and noticed that the one that was left was amazingly still green. Not wilting. This morning, Roots! What a gift in winter. I'll plant it. Maybe? Never rooted Rosemary before. I glanced over and caught a glimpse of the Great Ho...
