Recipe's & Home Remedy's / Foolproof Fudge
« on: February 10, 2006, 01:00:58 AM »
3 cups semisweet chocolate
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (your favorite variety)

Line a square pan with wax paper. (Original recipe said 8-inch; I prefer 9-inch.)

In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with the condensed milk. Watch this, so you don't overcook.

Remove from heat and stir in the chopped nuts and vanilla extract.

Spread evenly into prepared pan.

Chill for 2 hours or until firm.

Once firm, turn onto cutting board, peel off waxed paper and cut into small squares.

This is such an easy recipe. Even my kids can make it. I've tried it in the microwave, but I don't have enough control over the "melting" process that way. It's incredibly rich, so make sure you cut the pieces small.

These are current pictures - not the "Good Old Days" - but they are definitely reminders of those days.

The Coffee Shop / "Zoloft" sentencing
« on: February 16, 2005, 07:42:55 AM »
CHARLESTON, S.C. Feb 16, 2005 — A 15-year-old boy was sentenced to 30 years in prison for murdering his grandparents after jurors rejected the claim that he was driven to kill by the antidepressant Zoloft.

What do you think?

The boy was 12 years old when he murdered his grandparents. He's never denied that.

I agree with the jury that Zoloft isn't a valid defense. We're each responsible for our behaviors. I'm fed up with the "it wasn't my fault" mentality.  >:( ::)

However . . . is 30 years in prison appropriate for the actions of a 12-year-old? I'm not suggesting he get off; he's guilty. But 30 years?  :-\

I'm interested in other opinions.
