Posted by mcm0704 on May 30, 2014 |

For the sweet part, why don’t we all have a cup of coffee and a piece of this yummy coffee cake? The cake is really easy to prepare, and I used to make a lot when the kids were young, and it was a family favorite, especially on Christmas and Easter mornings. The recipe used […]

The Technological Singularity

Posted by mcm0704 on May 28, 2014 |

Please help me welcome Benjamin Dancer as today’s Wednesday’s guest. I forgot to ask what his beverage of choice might be, but he doesn’t seem like a latte or cup of tea kind of guy. Maybe it isn’t too early for just a little nip of scotch. He, and the central character in his book, […]

Please welcome Marjorie Brody as my Wednesday’s Guest today. I asked her for a quick introduction and she wrote: “I love scuba diving, the theatre, escaping into books, creating characters and stories from a blank page, my husband, our four children, and our five grandchildren—and not necessarily in that order.
