  • Happy Birthday to me!

    Well everyone, I am pleased to report that my birthday was two days ago. I tried to keep my spirits up as best I could by baking my own birthday cake. It's a Hungarian nut torte passed down by word-of-mouth in my family. There's no telling how old it is. I can tell you that it has spiced buttercream icing (also homemade), has paprika, and you have to remove the yolks from the eggs before blending both yolk and white together. Paired with some homemade custard and a merry time was had by all! At least, as much as anyone could be during these times

    Well, Happy Birthday to you, Jake! And how many years is it, now? BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Looks a bit like pumpkin pie. Does it taste anything like it? Happy birthday!

          Happy birthday, Jake. Baking one's own birthday cake must be a rare thing these days. You will make some gal a terrific husband should you ever decide to marry.
          You are just full of surprises.

                I would be 20 as of now. The worst birthday in my opinion. No longer a kid but I can't drink legally!

                  No worries! I take great pride in my cooking. A useful, practical skill that is also fun!

                    Happy Big 20 Jake. As I recall, the last big deal was at 25, when insurance rates dropped for the last time due to age. After that birthday is just another year older, and they go by more and more quickly. Hope and pray you have MANY more to come.
