Guess who’s going to get his AARP card in the mail?  The perpetually perfect, all-American boy wonder Barbie Ken hit the big 5-0 on March 11.

Excavate,embrace & express change…

Lights out for Easy-Bake Oven…

Did you read that Politicians have killed the traditional Easy-Bake Oven? The headline caught this nostalgic healthy red headed-blue eyed morselist! WHY? It turns out the oven’s heating element, a common 100 watt incandescent bulb, will be outlawed next year.  While I respect the efforts to respect our environment, I was sad to see my …
