With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I’ve made a momentous decision. I am not sending a newsletter out next week. Whew! There, I said it.
With family arriving as soon as Monday, I’ve decided to put work aside, and enjoy the season. I’ll be back the following week with web recommendations on Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, a leader in the field of computer programming.
Wishing all my American readers a very happy Thanksgiving!
See ya on the Net,

In his 1980 book The Sesame Street Dictionary , Cookie Monster declares December 4 to be National Cookie Day. In celebration of this (and the upcoming holidays), here are my picks for easy cookie recipes.
AllRecipes.com: No Bake Cookies
With familiar favorites like Marshmallow Treats and Peanut Butter Haystacks, as well as new discoveries such as Chocolate Mice shaped from a chocolate/sour cream/cookie crumb “dough,” these no-bake delights are sure to please. One of my favorite features at AllRecipes is the user-submitted photos. Some of these delightful creations were certainly made by kids. I just loved browsing through them!
All Recipes.com: Quick and Easy Cookies
Another cookie collection from AllRecipes.com, this one from their Quick and Easy section. At the top of the page, you’ll find Staff Picks (Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever and Aaron’s Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies) followed by 200 more recipes sorted by popularity. It’s no surprise that Quick and Easy Brownies “won” first place. Doesn’t everyone love chocolate?
Betty Crocker: Kids' Cookie Recipes
“Letting children help bake cookies can get a little messy. But by assigning tasks based on their ages, you’ll sprinkle in a sense of pride at the same time they learn key skills.” This beautifully photographed Betty Crocker collection includes tips for baking with kids, Christmas Cookies Kids Can Decorate, ideas for a cookie exchange party for kids, as well as individual cookie recipes.
