27 photos of some of the most adorable dogs to live in the White House

President Barack Obama and his dog Bo were very close. Getty Dogs are the most popular pet for a president to have during his time in the White House. President Donald Trump broke the presidential tradition when he didn't bring a dog into the White House, saying after two years in office that he would feel "a little phony doing so." President-elect Joe Biden is poised to reset the tradition of dogs in the Executive Mansion with his two German shepherds, one of whom would be the first shelt...

Comment on dreamy cream scones by Susan

Question- Could you use half-and-half instead of heavy cream? And if so would you up the butter?

Comment on whole wheat chocolate oat cookies by Heather

In reply to Susan. I’m also curious about using a fat other than butter. Anyone try them or have an idea if some kind of oil or vegan “butter” would work OK?

Comment on bialy babka by Susan

Ready to make this and should’ve asked sooner, but: I hate everything about chopping onions so bought pre-chopped at the grocery store, but they come in 5oz packages. Can anyone tell me quantity of chopped onions to use, either in ounces or cups? Thanks in advance!

In reply to Susan. I make and freeze cinnamon rolls often. I freeze after shaping them. Set them on the counter the night before to defrost and rise. I see no reason that this recipe shouldn’t work similarly

Thom Tillis Puts His Opponent’s Affair on Blast. Does Anyone Care?

LEXINGTON, North Carolina—In the final 24 hours before the Nov. 3 election, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) kept the schedule of a candidate fighting for his political life, criss-crossing the state for rallies and events, seemingly popping in front of every local TV camera available.His Democratic challenger, Cal Cunningham, might have been expected, like Tillis, to try and wring every last bit of exposure out of the election’s final hours. However, Cunningham was nowhere to be found—by reporters and t...

Three Wild Pumpkins, a Small French Boy, and His Curious Grandmother

The three pumpkins sprouted unintended from our compost pile. Their appearance there was quite a surprise as it has been a few years since I carved “American” style pumpkins (French pumpkins are flat and red and only for eating). It seemed a miracle that some seeds had survived and germinated after several long, hot summers laying dormant. The small French boy normally lives in Bordeaux, but was in our small village visiting his curious grandmother. The curious grandmother i...

Nursing Homes, Racked by the Virus, Face a New Crisis: Isolation

KIRKLAND, Wash. -- After months of near-isolation inside his senior care facility, Charlie no longer recognizes his wife of almost 50 years. In another nursing home, Susan's toenails grew so long that she could not squeeze into her shoes. Ida lost 37 pounds and stopped speaking. Minnie cried and asked God to just take her.They are among thousands of older people stricken by another epidemic ravaging America's nursing homes -- an outbreak of loneliness, depression and atrophy fueled by th...

In Defense of The Lawn

Last week, Susan Harris emailed me regarding my recent article “In Defense of The Lawn” in the July/August issue of The American Gardener magazine. “Can we use it for the Rant?” she said, “Where it belongs?”  Susan is right – it is a rant of sorts, though I like to think of it as a well-reasoned argument.  In any case, it’s a discussion I think we should all have; and when I contacted David Ellis, editor of The American Gardener, he kindly permitted us to run an excerpt here to start that discu...

Social media and the gardening discourse

The jury is still out on this. For every instance of helpful fellowship and joyful sharing, I can find equal examples of myth-based misinformation and knee-jerk snap judgements (if not out-and-out trolling) made without bothering to read what has been posted. Sadly, it’s possible to turn even the most complex issues into generalized memes. These get shared with groups of “friends,” most of whom post dittohead comments in agreement with whatever absurdity is being accepted as fact. The most recen...

‘Martha Knows Best’ Is Not Great. It’s Not Even a Good Thing.

So, it’s come to this. As a nation, we are so starved for American garden programming that we are willing to accept that a woman worth over $620 million dollars, stuck for 82 days on her 153-acre estate in Bedford, NY; with her gardener, one of her housekeepers, and one of her drivers; and joined as needed by groundskeepers and their foreman, is going to fill that need and leave us hungry for another season of down-to-earth gardening advice. So starved, that we are willing to accept HGTV prom...

Browntail Moths and the Will to Garden

Browntail moth – note the tail! My post about Lyme Disease – especially my forgetting to freak out about it, thanks to worrying about Covid – prompted this email from reader Lorraine Streat in Maine. Hello Susan, I read your great article regarding deer ticks and Lyme Disease. In Maine, we gardeners battle deer ticks, black fly and worst of all, the Browntail Moth! Look that up if you want to give up gardening. These moths infiltrate large swaths of areas for seven years at a time, killing th...

Comment on baked pasta with broccoli rabe and sausage by Susan

Stellar! This was huge hit and the leftovers are divinely delicious. I will make a smidge more béchamel next time since I used bowtie pasta and they drank every drop of the yummy sauce. Not a problem but I do like more moisture for the leftover reheat.

Pompeo Facing Yet Another Ethics Probe, This Time For Jerusalem RNC Speech

Ethics officials are probing yet another potential violation from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, this time in the speech he gave to the Republican National Convention in August during a diplomatic trip to the Middle East. The Office of Special Counsel has opened a case file on Pompeo’s speech, the chairs of the House Foreign Affairs and Appropriations committees said in a statement.  “As we get closer to both this year’s election and his own inevitable return to electoral politics, Mike...

Guest Post: Susan May

My name is Susan May, I am delighted to tell a bit of my story, here on Corey's blog.                I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.    Growing up far from the continental United States, travel has been part of my life since a toddler.            Which made moving to Switzerland, 14 years ago, for my husband's job, an adventure more than a challenge.                   8 years into our life in Zurich, we...

56. Pan Am in Vietnam

Crystal Cox/Business Insider During the Vietnam War, Pan Am flew troops in and out of an active war zone on rest and recuperation trips. The flight attendants on those planes didn't get any special training or preparation to deal with some of the horrors they would witness, and when the war was over, they didn't receive recognition from the U.S. government. But their role left a lasting impact, even if their contributions were largely forgotten. Listen on: Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher  |...

Comment on whole wheat chocolate oat cookies by Susan

In reply to Kate. Thanks, Kate! I had seen varying theories on oil/butter switches online (suggesting using less oil than a recipe’s stated butter amount), so good to know an equal switch works.

Comment on skillet-baked pasta with five cheeses by Susan

In the fridge at all times, panic if I don’t see them or running low: kalamata olives, capers, sriracha, Dijon mustard, lemons, limes, chicken thighs (ok, in the freezer….) and a mayo concoction I cannot live without: Walkerswood jerk seasoning added to mayo for slathering on sandwiches, dipping pieces of rotisserie chicken into or dipping fries.

Comment on blondies, infinitely adaptable by Susan

I love this recipe and have made it many times. I’ve made several variations, but the one I made yesterday is my favorite so far. I used a tablespoon of bourbon instead of the vanilla, added 2 tablespoons of espresso powder, and 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder. For the mix ins, I added 1 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup of toasted chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup of coconut flakes. They are perfection.

Comment on pumpkin bread by Susan

We love walnuts and a generous amount of fresh cranberries in our pumpkin bread. I’m just wondering if it’s going to fit in one loaf pan with those additions (given it’s so lovely and high already without!) or whether I should just plan on 2 smaller (lower) loaves. (BTW, we made this before and remember LOVING it – but don’t recall how we handled extra ingredients.) Thanks!

Colourful Cords for Fall

A new outfit from Susan of Une femme d’un certain âge, whom we introduced to YLF in July 2018. The cheerful colours in this polished casual outfit are gorgeous and happy for early Fall.

Upselling: find additional business in existing accounts

Many years ago, just as technology was becoming ubiquitous, I closed $6,400,000 worth of business in the sales reps’ long-term accounts during the real-time call portion of my Buying Facilitation® training with IBM. This particular group had had their accounts for 3 years on average and knew their clients quite well…. Or so they thought. The funny/sad thing was that I had no specific details about what I was selling, and I certainly had no relationship with the clients I spoke with. But not onl...
