Depression Cake Recipe

Mary Lou Nutterfield of Hutchinson, Kansas, found this recipe written by her mother. She guesses it's from the 1930s.

Whiteboard Handwriting From a Fourth Grader

Karen Lin Albright sent some examples of Chinese hand calligraphy, and also this very special handwriting sample.

It was her son’s idea (in fourth grade) of writing on his Daddy’s work white board. He’s now 24 and a graphic designer; Wen kept this picture he drew as dad worked away at the office so many years ago.

Thanks for sharing, Karen! Visit her website at:
