Why Elementary Schools Need to Stop Giving Out Homework [POLL]

Homework is one of those things that comes with school. You go to school, you have homework, you do it (hopefully) and carry on with the rest of your day. The other day, my daughter came home with a few sheets of homework that was to be turned in by the end of the week. It's enough homework to easily add two hours of work at home, which also means two extra hours that my wife or I will have to attend to helping her. When will she have time to just be a kid?

Official ‘Cronut’ Recipe Finally Released by the Inventor of the Cronut Himself

It wasn't too long ago that Dominique Ansel unveiled probably his greatest bakery creation, the Cronut. A pastry so unique he even trademarked the name Cronut so that nobody else could use it.

Man Biking With Mobile Tap was My Highlight of Fresh Hop Ale Festival

I attended the Fresh Hop Ale Festival on Saturday. I've been coming to these since the second or third year they've have been going on -- even when I lived out town. It's grown so much in recent years that lots of people now visit Yakima just so they won't miss out. More and more taps show up each year, too.

This was the first year, however, that I saw this guy. Instead of going to the taps, he comes to you!

What Started as a Quick Trip to the In-Laws Turned into Taking Their Dog in For a Final Visit to the Vet

Dobie is my mother-in-law's best friend and has been for the past 14 years. Dobie has always been right there to clean up any scraps that my kids throw on the floor. "Dobie" was one of the first words my second daughter learned to say. Dobie has been an all-around great dog. Today, she breathed her last breath.

Coke and Pepsi Both Have a New Drink and Both Come in a Green Can

Coke and Pepsi have seemingly always battled for soda supremacy. Both would come out with new products. Some would be similar as both would have a no-calorie soda, both would have one featuring lime or sometimes they'd have new flavors for the public to test. Both Coke and Pepsi are announcing a new cola featuring a natural sweetener, stevia and, oddly enough, both come in a green can.

Experiencing Terror on the Ave in 3D

Wednesday we got a special behind-the-scenes tour of Terror on the Ave. From what I saw, this is bound the be the greatest haunted attraction I've ever been to in any town I've been in. Not only are there different areas, each with their own theme, but it's longer than last year and will be in 3D.

Crispy M&M’s Coming Back to Store Shelves in January

I love looking back at younger, more simple times. There's big business in nostalgia as people who were once kids now have a disposable income to buy back their youth, so to speak. There are companies making machines to play old Nintendo games, Surge made a comeback and, according to the Mars company, Crispy M&M's are next on that list of discontinued items that will hit store shelves soon.
