Cheesecake by definition is rich and decadent. So we knew that if we were going to make a special cheesecake just for Christmas, it would need to be even richer and even more decadent.
I have a Bible verse propped up on my desk as a great reminder throughout the day. It reads, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Of course the answer to that is a resounding NO! I would like to share a few encouraging stories that illustrate how nothing is impossible for God.
In a scary new venture, Rush Limbaugh has announced publication of a children’s history book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,” intended to correct what he and his fellow troglodytes consider historical distortions in currently used school books. Having bamboozled millions of angry, racist old white men, Limbaugh is expanding his propaganda victims. According to Limbaugh, children shouldn’t be taught about our broken Indian treaties; our former dictator-propping foreign policy; and similarly unpleasant historical facts.
There will finally be as many people working in Arizona at the end of next year as there were employed here in 2005.

We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.
In preparation for my first play review, I thought it would be a great idea to read the book “Robin Hood.”

A federal judge on Tuesday slapped down the latest efforts by the state to block the Tohono O'odham from building a casino on the edge of Glendale.
As the gun debate stirs and emotions rise higher and higher, we tend to leave ration and logic out of the subsequent efforts to address what is an important public issue. Emotionally charged solutions seldom fix anything. They simply make a lot of people feel like something positive is being done but they truly accomplish nothing. And marching out victims to use as props for your initiative is a shameless political ploy. Politicians are great at using emotional issues to push their pet plans. Most of the efforts currently in flight to answer the recent tragedies in Colorado, Arizona, Connecticut (all very liberal enclaves I might add) are labeled as “Gun Safety” and “Gun Violence” initiatives. Looking at those terms, who is not for Gun Safety? And who is not for ending Gun Violence?
Seniors at Mountain Park Senior Living in Ahwatukee are taking up a new activity once a week: singing and dancing.
"Blood-drenched" barely begins to describe Fede Alvarez's remake of "Evil Dead," a gore-for-broke affair that strips the flesh off Sam Raimi's cult-beloved comic-horror franchise and exposes the demons at its core. The presence of Raimi, original collaborator Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell as producers should give the faithful permission to attend what would otherwise smell like a shameless exploitation of the 1981 film, but the high production values and nonstop action offered here should also please younger genre fans who've never bothered to rent it.
Salt River Project (SRP), the Arizona Multihousing Association and Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona (DPCA) have joined forces to remind the public to stay safe around water at community pools.

Phoenix voters approved changes to the city’s pension system during a special election on Tuesday.
Created by Arizona native Timothy Reckart, “Head Over Heels” puts an imaginative, whimsical twist on the tale of a married couple grown apart – he lives on the floor while she lives on the ceiling.
A special election in March will decide if changes are made to Phoenix’s unbalanced pension system, which could save the city about $600 million over 25 years.
A Scottsdale legislator figures you might have second thoughts about buying something if you knew all sales are final and it could not be returned.
It’s that time of year to hand out some honors for the year’s best. So it is without further ado that I bring you the Third Annual Hammer Awards.
Judging part one of Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” prelude “The Hobbit” is a bit like reviewing a film after seeing only the first act.
