Today is the 80th anniversary of the 21st Amendment to the Constitution which repealed the 18th Amendment that banned alcohol. Raise the beverage of your choice in salute at 7:00 pm this evening… the time at which President Roosevelt signed the 21st Amendment into Law!
“To alcohol! The cause of… and solution to… all of life’s problems.” - Matt Groening (via Homer Simpson)

I first heard of the Christmas Vigilantes last year. If you haven’t been struck by the Christmas Vigilantes yet, here’s the scoop: One local family has created a tradition that they have been practicing for the last few years. They go out touring the local Christmas light displays and award written certificates of merit with positive critiques and occasional prizes.
To the best of my knowledge, as with most vigilante groups they are semi anonymous. If you want to send any pictures of light displays that you think merit acknowledgement, please feel free to send them here. If I like them as well as you, I’ll post them on the site. If you send the addresses to me, I’ll leave it under a rock at the designated drop site for the vigilantes to pick up. Possibly your submittal will receive a visit!
Seems like they should have a tag-line too, doesn’t it? Something like Superman’s “Up, Up and Away!!!” I’ll have to ask them. If you have suggestions for that, I’ll take them here too.
Cookie Gobblers made for cookie gobblers… I ran across these on the Internet and thought they looked like a fun project to make and then destroy… though my teeth cringe a little about enduring that much sugar. The cookies pictured above were from a site called HI Cookery and included instructions for making them here. The instruction even included a video!
For those with even more ambition, here’s a recipe for making Turkey Cookies with more “from scratch” ingredients. They’re shown in the picture at the right. This one requires actually backing some chocolate cookies rather than just cracking open an Oreo. I found this one at the Worth Pinning site here.
I know you were just dying for a suggestion on how to use up that Candy Corn left over from Halloween… Here you go!
Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at Easterday Construction Co., Inc.!
