They are moist and structured, but still soft and light, ever-so-slightly crisped exterior. They have just the right level of sweet, and I didn’t need to sugar or glaze or really anything them to make them work...."

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/02/17:

We took the kids to one of those restaurants where the walls are plastered with movie memorabilia. I went off to see the hostess about reserving a table. When I returned, I found my 10-year-old granddaughter staring at a poster of Superman standing in a phone booth.

She looked puzzled. "She doesn't know who Superman is?" I asked my wife.

"Worse," my wife replied. "She doesn't know what a phone booth is."

Just a Dream

Written and recorded by Jimmy Clanton, 1958
(b. 02 Sept 1940)


Just a dream, just a dream:
All our plans and our all schemes.
How could I think you'd be mine?
The lies I'd tell myself each time.

I know that we could never last;
We just can't seem to in the past.
Just a dream I dream in vain;
With you I'd only live in pain.

Your picture is always with me;
I can still hear that same mournful song.
And now I sit here crying;
Please leave me alone.

Why, why do I love you?
How can I live in misery?
I know that I won't forget you,
But now I know it's too late for me.
