Fixing the classic pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving

Guest post written by Rick Sparks

I didn't get to eat pumpkin pie a whole lot when I was younger. I guess it was really just a holiday only deal. So I think that's a reason that I love the dessert so much and always look forward to meals when I'm going to have it. So now every year I'm always the one that handles fixing a pumpkin pie for our family Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I love making it and it's also an easy way to ensure that we're going to eat some.

I always like to look up some recipes to see if there's another variation of pumpkin pie that I could fix. I started looking with our wireless internet Chesterfield a few weeks ago and I found all kinds of stuff. Pumpkin goes well with so many other flavors, so there are all kinds of possibilities!

I'm not sure which kind of pumpkin pie I'm going to fix yet, but I'm sure that there won't be any leftovers of it, regardless. There never has and probably never will be.

A short story bridging the Cloud Prophet Trilogy and The Swarm Trilogy


Before Anathema...

Before Sleepers...

There was The Initiate

Over a thousand years ago, the gods left Eloh's people and took their magic with them. To win back their favor, her people sacrifice ten female initiates every ten years. No has ever survived. There has never been a Chosen One.

Forced into becoming an initiate, Eloh will try to find a way to beat the odds, stay with her boyfriend, and survive the fires that threaten to consume her. But will her lack of faith in the gods and her disbelief in their magic doom her to a painful death?

Television gives mom a break

Post contributed by Josue Durham

I always planned on my child being smart. I wanted him to always read books and play with the educational toys. I wanted to avoid television because it was not challenging. At least that was the plan in the beginning. When reality set in, I have never been more thankful for my direct tv than I am now. I did not realize how difficult it can be to raise a child. There are some days I wish I was still working. I always thought being at home would be relaxing and easy, but that is far from the truth. Sometimes I think my child is plotting against me. I know it might sound crazy, but I really think that. The television has become my “coffee break”. When everything is non-stop, it is nice to be able to have a moment to myself. Currently I am able to get that when Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is on. I guess that means I am also very thankful to Walt Disney. I think I love Mickey more now than I did as a kid.


Happy Holidays!

It's already Christmas time. I can't believe how fast this year flew by. I hope everybody has a happy and safe Christmas! I will see you all next year!

I visited DirectStarTV.com and upgraded our television package. I have been watching the morning television news shows now every morning. I saw a really interesting segment on the “Today Show” today. A professor was arrested recently because some kid brought alcohol into his teenage son’s party. The professor was arrested and charged with forty-five counts of child endangerment ( the number of kids that were at the party). Honestly, I felt sorry for the dad that was facing up to a year in jail. I couldn’t believe that they were holding him accountable. I remember being in high school and going to parties at houses and kids were always sneaking alcohol into the parties. The parents couldn’t monitor everyone. I can’t imagine having a party at my house and that happening and me being carted off to jail. It almost makes me want to completely avoid having people over to my house. You just never know what teenagers are up to, if you are held responsible for them sneaking something in the house, I think that I would be too scared to throw a party!
