July 9th is national Sugar Cookie Day

It's National Sugar Cookie Day! Today, we honor a cookie that is simple and straightforward, but totally delicious. Traditional sugar cookie recipes call for just six ingredients: sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and baking powder.

Although sugar cookies by themselves can be quite plain, they are incredibly versatile. Use cookie cutters to create shaped sugar cookies, and top them with frosting or sprinkles. You can also make cookie sandwiches with two sugar cookies and fillings like marshmallow, melted chocolate, or jam.

To celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day, make a batch of homemade sugar cookies to share with friends and coworkers. Provide a variety of interesting decorations and let everyone personalize their bite-sized dessert

On a more serious note. I had seen this video a couple of weeks ago but George Takei posted it today.
Female-empowering commercials are all the rage these days.
In the newest ad to point to the power of a woman, adults are asked to perform activities "like a girl." You watch men and women alike make fun of the tasks, as they feebly "toss like a girl" and "run like a girl," with limbs everywhere and a pained looked on their faces.
But the redeeming moment of the commercial comes when young girls are asked to perform the same tasks. And they don't add all the drama to what they're doing - unsurprisingly, a girl throwing like a girl looks a lot like a boy throwing like a boy.
They naturally do things with the same expertise and enthusiasm, proving that the "like a girl"

description is something we develop as we get older and are taught that females are simply genetically unable to act in a similar manner to men.
The ad, by Proctor and Gamble brand Always, highlights the sad fact that a "girl's confidence plummets during puberty" because we teach them that "like a girl" is a bad thing.

@ Robb
Thank you very much for taking the start and making us think.
We all need to feel empowered, girl and boy alike.

"You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
smarter than you think,
and loved more than you know."

Did you know that Seinfeld premiered 25 years ago?
Did you know that the term double dipping when it comes to chips (or crisps) came from a Seinfeld episode?

Night people.

Thanks for the start Robb. Are you condo hunting??

Morning Red. It's another chilly day, 3* at home this morning but warmer here at work. The ground was full of frost. I only mention this because it is quite unusual for us:)

I do hope it's a good one.

Morning Sally
Urgh that is chilly, sorry to report that it is 21,8* already here at 8 o'clock and with a promise of up to 25-28 during the rest of the day, sun is shining and there is a light breeze, just a perfect summer day - sadly I have to spend it in an office without air conditioning LOL

I get to spend my day doing the housework that I blew off on Saturday...
Joy, Joy, Joy...
I just can't wait for tomorrow... (ok, later today)

I have actually fallen asleep twice since I got home but have woke up each time..

Red, I know ... how sad that a day like that has to be spent indoors. But you do get to cycle in!

You need that sleep Sandy.

Saturday morning I got up early, put on my long johns, dressed quietly, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, slipped quietly into the garage to hook the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.

There was snow mixed with the rain, and the wind was blowing 50 mph.

I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad throughout the day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. There I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."

She sleepily replied, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that crap ?.."

I have been in bed.. Trying to get to sleep at a decent hour..
BUT, I haven't really gotten to sleep before 5:00-6:00 am all week....

I'm thinking of Lenora and hoping that her energy levels are a little higher and she is not so tired.

Also cat and Plays, I do hope that you both feel better soon.

So many people have so much to contend with and I think about you all often.

JoJo, you are always in my thoughts too. You are truly an inspiration to us all.
