What a week-all the markets plunging, the debates, our sunshine turning to more fall-ish rain....I don't know about you but I'm SO glad it's Friday. Check out these links!
1. Tired of Telemarketers? Sign up for Canada's National Do Not Call List
It's been up for a few days and even though I heard that it was swamped and the server crashed at first, I just registered yesterday and it worked fine. I'm SO sick of telemarketers calling me! However, I'm wondering how that works when the telemarketers call you from another country-we get a bunch from the USA?
2. Know a Teen That Likes to Write? Check out the YWCA Real Story Contest
Teens from the Greater Vancouver Area (Howe Sound, Sunshine Coast, Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley) are invited to submit essays on a woman who inspires them. Prizes range from $250-$1000! Go here for details. Sounds like a lot of and and a great chance for a young writer to be recognized!
3. My new favorite cookie recipe: Andrea's chocolate toffee cherry morsels
Recently a friend sent me the recipe for these, and once I baked them I was hooked-what's not to like about a dark chocolate, fudgy cookie with sour cherries and skor bar bits? Amazing!! Jake had friends negotiating for his cookies at school. Recipe is coming soon, don't worry!
4. Fabulicious links all week long: Scattered Mom's De.li.cious Bookmarks
I'm not sure if you've noticed, but as I surf the Internets throughout the week I bookmark things that I find interesting and they show up here in the Cookie Jar on my sidebar. There's Halloween costumes, recipes, funny blog entries, odd news, Thanksgiving stuff, and all sorts of fun things to look at. Keep an eye out on those bookmarks as I find new and fun stuff throughout the week!
