    Lol. I’ve been on the administrative side of our business for a few years, but it doesn’t exactly fit what I do, and I’ve maxed out the pay scale there. So I’ve been pushing my boss the last year or so to move me over the what we call the ‘professional services’ side of things, [...]

    FDA approval will be required, which I’m now reading costs upwards of $50k and takes around 2 – 3 years. And that’s EACH product. So our small boutique juice line with 3 flavors will need 3 separate approvals. It’s not feasible for a small business any longer.

    That’s what homeowners insurance is for, though. Accidents that occur in your home or on your property. Dog bites are pretty standard. The attorney explained that there’s actually and industry matrix that determines payouts based on age of the victim, location of the injuries, type of scarring, number of stitches, etc. It’s a pretty cut [...]

    Alright kids. I’ve got to get busy with my day. A morning walk to take with the dog, some breakfast to be had, and work to be done.

    I love you all, and I’ll check back in later for any messages to pass along to oldnslow and cbl :)

    I wasn’t there. Here’s what happened. Kristen and I were attending a local city council meeting (in Georgetown) to lend support to their local e-cig shop. The council was voting on a new ordinance that would force the shop to close it’s doors by making it illegal to vape in any public or common space [...]

    Nah. We’re only about $1,000 in. And the FDA has given a 75 day comment period, then a 2 year non-enforcement period. So we’ll be able to operate for 2 years at least. If it looks like a sensible move to apply for FDA approval, we will. I think we’ll just end up shutting it [...]

    FDA proposed regulations were released 20 minutes ago.

    Our business is no longer viable. Deeming regulations will require us to seek FDA approval for the product, which will take years and is far too costly.

    Goodbye small businesses, hello big tobacco.

    I think it’s really important as well :) The girls had a good time last night, and Charlotte got over her initial embarrassment of being out and seen with stitches on her face, so that was also positive.

    I met with a personal injury attorney yesterday and started that process. I would seek recompense myself, but I was worried I might now be able to refrain from physically assaulting the owner of they protested in the slightest.

    The last few days have been incredibly chaotic. Here’s an update – Charlotte was attacked by a neighbor’s dog on Tuesday night. The dog bit her face, and we had to visit the hospital to get the wounds closed. She’s only 8 years old, but was a real trooper about the whole thing. She’s more [...]

    Good morning firedogs. Thanks for the post and host, Ruth.

    I watched The Walking Dead as well :) I flipped to the Academy Awards at one point and Ellen was walking around in the crowd handing out slices of pizza… Wow. So Fuku is as bad as we thought all along. Maybe worse. Sad news. I suppose all we can do is wait and see [...]

    Aereo is in trouble here. SCOTUS won’t let big businesses down. My thought – The broadcasters need to work WITH Aereo. If broadcasters can get solid information on users and viewership numbers, the broadcasters can increase their ad buy prices by factoring in those viewers. It’s a win/win. Aereo gets to keep operating, and the [...]

    I agree :) They’re just the wrong kind of use with the cutters.

    They’re friggin’ delicious, though.

    And I baked! Which I never ever do. I hate measuring when cooking.

    I’d like to, but time is an issue now. I’ve got a couple other things to do this morning before surprising her at work at noon. So there’s no time for another recipe. :(

    I’ll have to save the cookie cutters for another day.

    Okay. Test cookies in the oven. Just realized a major flaw in my plan, though. I’m making chocolate chip cookies, which are drop cookies, and I bought cookie cutters in special shapes to use. Can’t use them because I’m making the wrong kind of cookies.

    It worked. Butter now creamed with sugars. Next step, add eggs!

    I don’t bake. This is a first time experiment, which I’m failing at miserably. My butter wasn’t softened enough, so I now have little balls of butter that won’t cream with my sugar. Frustrating. I’ve got my mixing bowl sitting on top of the stove with the stove on, hoping the added heat will soften [...]
