The Next Blog Carnival is UP and other stuff!

A few things on the web that are too good to miss:

I updated it in my post from the other day, but Gary Presley's book has had a rave review in the New York Times!

The Next Blog Carnival is up at The Life and Times of Emma. The theme is "I am." (I think I missed posting that the Blog Carnival on Lists was up 2 weeks ago--good reading over there, some quite funny... check it out!)

I read this post this week over at Wheelie Catholic. Births of children with Down syndrome are rising in the UK... It sounds like the conventional wisdom there is becoming 'life with Down syndrome is not so bad.' What would it take to make that happen in the US? What would it take to expand that to include other disabilities??

In the US we're basking in the glow of Thankfulness and those of us who are not blogging this morning are shopping... In honor of the official start of the gift-shopping season, here is a blog that shares lots of Assistive Tech stuff all year and has gift suggestions for folks with disabilities up now. He will be posting a blog carnival of AT gift ideas in a couple of weeks--watch for that!

hello Terri! The potatoes are easy--I just kind of throw in what looks like enough fresh, minced garlic, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, pepper, a few big handfuls of Parmesan, a 1/4-1/2 cup cream (even 1/2 cream 1/2 chicken broth is good) and a big hunk of softenend butter. Then you mash them to get a cremy/ lumpy texture. And leave the skins on. Yummy ;)!

The Pumpkin Pie cobbler is super simple too. One can of pumpkin pie mixture. 2 eggs. 1/2 can of evapo. milk. Beat till smooth and pour into a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle a yellow cake mix (dry)over the top. Then top with one stick of butter that has been cut into cubes. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. The caramel cinnamon whipped cream is just cream that's been beat with brown sugar and cinnamon (the cream/ brown sugar mixture tastes very caramely).

Hope that was enough! :)

Happy day after Thanksgiving!
