    Thank you!

    To celebrate, my mother and I made a pumpkin cake with creme cheese frosting for my birthday using a family recipe. Delicious cake... Then I went to the Tap Room for a drink which imports from around the world (but don't ask me what I had). It's a place of historical significance.

    Don't feel bad, the menu is rather staggering and the bartender was nice enough to recommend something. After that, I switched back to domestic beer since I was going to be heading home afterward.

    Double that, take 5 and add twice the amount.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    We don't see eye-to-eye at times, but I certainly harbor no ill will towards you.

    That is about as close to squeezing an ounce of humanity out of that woman as any of us may ever get. Enjoy it while it lasted.

    The cake does sound delicious. But I am biased towards pumpkin based desert foods. Todd, did your birthday pass and I didn't notice!?

    Perhaps we should. I don't want to see the thread derailed by some sort of argument since we be discussin' grog.

    >> Todd, did your birthday pass and I didn't notice!?
    That would be impossible since his is three or so weeks from mine.

    Pumpkin cake is awesome, you'll at least have to give it a slice. I'd give out the recipe but I don't know if I can...

    Thanks again everyone.

    Nah I would never let any such derailment take away from your thread citizen And I misread his post. And don't worry you do not need to unlock your family secret for my benefit. Though I will definitely have to go find some place to get some. Hmmmmmmm or I bet I can google me up a recipe *strokes chin*
