My grandmother Mrs. Ruby Forbes cooks my ideal cornbread. It’s just outstanding. I went ahead and took the time to write down her instructions because neither myself or my mother can ever remember it. So here’s Mrs. Ruby Forbes cornbread:
1 Cup Flower
2 Cups Yellow Corn Meal(preferably fresh from farmers market)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 can evaporated milk
Her instructions were to have your own cast iron skillet specifically for cooking cornbread. She has what looks like an 8-10 inch diameter skillet with about 2 inch high walls that she uses exclusively for cornbread. It’s never washed. She wipes it out and pours a thin layer of vegetable oil in the bottom before adding her mix. She bakes at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes and it’s just great!
She’s almost three years old and so darn sweet it’s unreal. Kisses me, pats my cheek and hugs me. Says “daddy come lay by me” when she’s watching cartoons in her bed and tells me “I’m happy daddy”. She can be so sweet when she’s not destroying my house.

Here’s a copy of my resume for people looking to copy a resume. I suggest you just make it your own and plug your information where mine is.
A very interesting approach to using AutoMapper. I’m bookmarking it here so I don’t lose it. I’ve used it and it works but not sure if I will continue using it.
I’m kind of looking back on all the neat stuff we got for Ella. About 80% of it didn’t work out. The only things that worked out most of the time were clothes. I propose that from now on out all baby shower gifts should be clothing or paper towels. Why paper towels? I should own stock in Brawny paper towels. We use more paper towels with this child then I ever imagined possible.
My kid has been fearless lately. We were really surprised she had no problem jumping off the diving board about 50 times.
