The Absolute Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
If you are anything like me, you delight in finding the absolute best recipe for your favorite foods and treats. I love chocolate chip cookies. And I don’t even determine the best based on if it is soft, hard or chewy. My palate just goes for good.

Departure: The Children Serpentine waves wafted up saline sprays as their liquid hands clapped the sides of the venerable Soporta. Each slap threatened to shred the patinaed boards down to toothpicks. The sea-legless children sauntered left, up, right, down in an exhausting whirl.
10 Ways To Renew Yourself
Before you scroll until you see the golden first numbered suggestion, at least skim over this introductory section. In a day, time and society where brevity and sound bites are the rule rather than the exception, we often write off a suggestion before considering if there is a new perspective amidst an old thought.
3 Basic Tips For Investing
How I Got Into Investing I landed my first teaching position before I actually graduated from college. So, I felt pretty pumped to start stacking money to pay off my student loan debt. In September, I flocked to the fold of sheep who started contributing to an IRA. Sure, a pension sounded lovely. But would that really be enough 40+ years from 2004?

Petrified, I stood at the end of the cold, slippery diving board. My scarlet one-piece bathing suit created a red tide below me. The ripples from my classmates made my reflection look like a wavy man at a car dealership. Perhaps the water was taunting me. Come in and have a look around. My fear and embarrassment kept bouncing off the surface as an abstract self portrait projected on a distortion mirror in a haunted house.
