Obama unveils Salary cap

i've been happily enjoying each bit of news these days... what a nice change.

salary cap for execs of businesses who are in need of govt aid. bbc article.

President Obama said it was "shameful" that top bankers had awarded themselves giant bonuses last year.

Firms will also have to publicly disclose "all the perks and luxuries bestowed upon senior executives, and provide an explanation to taxpayers and to shareholders as to why these expenses are justified". "We're asking these firms to take responsibility, to recognize the nature of this crisis and their role in it," said the president.

"We all need to take responsibility," said President Obama.

"And this includes executives at major financial firms who turned to the American people, hat in hand, when they were in trouble, even as they paid themselves their customary lavish bonuses.

izzy in a box


there is such a thing as the cat in a box contest......... and izzy will be a finalist.

amazing. wish us (her) luck. not that she needs it... she's box-addicted.

and one more for extreme cute overload:

the cutest little baby ever! wow.


feel like cooking

maybe it's because lucas made 3 flans in a week, who knows.

coconut custard... wow. i don't even bake. going to make this soon.

Coconut Custard

5 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut (I'm sorry, for those commenters questioning, I don't know what this is called or how it's sold in other countries; in the U.S. it comes in a bag, or you can buy it in bulk.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs well, then add the sugar, milk, half-and-half, and vanilla. Stir in coconut. Pour custard into a two-quart glass casserole dish and bake for 35-45 minutes until center is set. If the top looks like it's getting too dark, cover the dish with aluminum foil. Serve warm.
