Christopher, that's some artwork! Can you tell me if the cookie dough is a traditional one? And is it one which is uniquely fashioned by each family? Is it a vegan recipe? If not a secret, would you share it? The dough is very basic, and the recipe is vegan. The recipe isn't a secret, and I'll post...

That's great! I worked on a sprout farm in college and we sprouted garbanzos. The dog that lived on the farm loved garbanzos.

The dog hung out with a bunch of goats and learned how to climb things.

It was a very cool dog.

That's great, Nicole! Great cause! :)

One of the coolest dogs I've ever met was a pitbull.

Very Figging impressive Dude :lol: Hahahahahaha....thanks, Tasha! And thanks to everybody else for taking a look. It's one of the few family traditions we have, and it's been awhile since we've made them. It's been a lot of fun, and this year is the first year I felt I really started getting the cu...

When vegans bash vegans, it looks bad to those who already think we're all crazy. Fortunately, I've seen more people realizing vegans aren't what they thought; they're seeing higher profile vegan celebrities and sometimes stumble upon vegans who surprise them because they aren't what they thought th...

I can be really bad when I'm on the go. I eat at my desk at work (small company and really no place to go eat lunch), so I tend to go through lunch pretty quickly while working. My wife's family was strapped for cash and she had to contend with a hungry father and hungry older brother, so the quicke...

Yeah, I love figs.

I'm taking it easy on them; it can be tough having them around the apartment. People at work have liked them, and most of our friends do, too, so there are plenty of people to share them with.

They're sooooooooooooo good! (that is, if you like figs)

Zack: The weight loss is coming along. It's not showing on the scale as much as in my clothes. I've done some traveling with work, recently, and bought some new clothes for a Seattle trip. I went down 1 - 2 sizes in slacks, depending on the manufacturer. I seem to be leveling out a bit with the mass...

Sicilian Fig Cookies

It's a tradition in my family to make fig cookies around Christmas. In recent years, with a lot of other things going on, we haven't made fig cookies. Last weekend, for the first time in probably five years, my wife, my mother, and I got together and made fig cookies. The designs for the cookies wer...

I jogged a mile this evening. I know for so many people, that's nothing. It's something I've never been able to do. I don't get along with running. When I was a hyper, scrawny kid--sure, I ran around, but I could never run any kind of distance. When I played football in high school and worked out re...

A recent issue of Men's Health (I think last month's issue with Jamie Foxx on the cover) had a bit about testosterone levels. It discussed lower levels in the U.S. compared to some other countries. There are lots of things that can affect levels: environmental factors, stress, drinking... I have low...

I played tennis for the first time in several weeks. It's still too hot to be October in Texas, but the co-worker I play tennis with gets up early, too, so the sun doesn't come up until we're close to wrapping up. It was a great match this morning--a great way to begin the day. After tennis, my wife...

Sorry to hear about everything that's going on. I don't know what you did for a living, but is there a way to make a leap to another career using the skills you have so you can continue building a financial foundation? Something that will at least give you security enough to budget, get in your time...
