I love Jordan Spieth. If you follow golf, you probably do, too.
If you don’t know who Jordan is, he’s the best thing to happen to golf since Tiger Woods first entered the scene. (And keep your judgments to yourself — he who casts the first stone and all that…)
Jordan became a professional golfer after only one year of college, but no one has ever disparaged his decision to leave school early or lack of education or poor example to our youth.
I think Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari sees the irony…don’t you?

I ran across a feature today online poking fun at the titles of young adult novels.
I recently took a couple of classes in YA lit at NYU, so this naturally caught my eye. And of all the ‘what they really should be called’ entries, this one made me say, “Oh, hell yeah!”

Did you know Cracker Barrel has an online store?
I was dozing on the couch and a commercial woke me up with the news.
For someone like me who doesn’t live near the Barrel, this is good news. Unfortunately you can’t order those nasty good Southern veggies online…or have Uncle Herschel’s breakfast delivered hot to your door.
But a ceramic owl spoon rest is nice, too.

The Interwebs are canoodlin’ about Google’s new logo, which they debuted yesterday on their homepage with a Doodle.
Twitter quickly responded with an #OldGoogle vs #NewGoogle hashtag, and #NewGoogle is winning..but personally, I think it’s
While the old logo was all serif-y (which isn’t my bag), the new logo looks like a generic children’s font from an off-brand puzzle or storybook.
I know their new name is Alphabet, but they can still afford nicer blocks, right?
Unless they have already spent a fortune in print support materials, I say ‘2.0’ this logo.
A little less #Blahgle and a little more #Google, please.

Tonight on Facebook, a friend posted this pic on pie etiquette:
I must protest.
Meringue is a national nightmare. Even a dollop is a spoonful too much for me. Encouraging the egregious behavior above means more scraping at restaurants… more apologies to meringue-loving friends and family… more gooey mess.
Just say no to meringue, America…at least in front of me.

I’m not much of a cake eater, but this ‘recipe’ has put me in the baking mood.
I found it on the Interwebs. Rumor has it if you have a favorite boxed cake mix on hand, all you need is a can of soda — instead of the usual eggs, water, oil, etc. — to make a perfectly yummy dessert.
Here are the suggested combinations:
Florida clan — this is on my list of ‘suggested dishes’ for our beach trip later this month. We gotta try it!
