Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies EVER

best-cookies-ever-gimmee-jimmys

So I agreed  to sample some cookies I had never heard of;  GIMMEE  JIMMYS.

A huge 2# tin arrived  last night  at 5pm.   Visions  of Chocolate Chip  and decadent brownies danced in my head!

I opened the tin!  and  there  they were!  NOT.

Instead, I saw Oatmeal Raisin cookies (probably my least favorite cookie on Earth!)  and  pretty  Chocolate Rugelach. (Rugelach, other spellings: rugelakh, rugulach, rugalach, ruggalach, rogelach, rugalah, rugulah, rugala, is a Jewish pastry of Ashkenazic origin. Traditional rugelach are made in the form of a crescent by rolling a triangle of dough around a filling.)

So I grabbed  a  rugelach first, since it had chocolate in it. DELICIOUS. Soft, fresh, perfect balance in flavors.

So I thought what the heck, let me try one of these oatmeal raisin cookies.  I took a small bit at first….it was sweet and chewy, and pretty darn good.  I took a second bigger bite.  Wow!  I told my partner, who also does not like  oatmeal raisin to try one. He did. AND  WOW  WOW!   He agreed, this was one of the BEST COOKIES  we had ever had.  Over the next 3 hours, I hate to admit, we finished off ALL  of the oatmeal raisin cookies   and  half  of the regelach, at which point I demanded we freeze the rest, so that we would stop eating the entire tin.

Come to find out, in 1983, Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies opened its doors, making spectacular home baked cookies available to the public in simple cookie tins. The founder, Jimmy Libman, was a dedicated businessman, deaf from birth, but never handicapped by the physical obstacles he faced. Jimmy delivered a great product, and word of his great-tasting cookies soon spread through his loyal and satisfied customers.

A few years ago, Jimmy stepped back from the center of the arena and left the responsibility of producing Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies in the hands of a small team of successors. Today, it is the mission of  the  talented team to make sure that Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies no longer remain a secret. “We share our love of cookies, cakes and all things delicious with tens of thousands of sweet-toothed customers, and enjoy bringing the experience of freshly-baked, carefully sourced, expertly crafted baked goods to cookie lovers worldwide.

Linda Thompson Shares a Look at Bruce Jenner

linda thompson bruce jenner

The Huffington Post is the exclusive outlet for a compelling blog written by Linda Thompson, former wife of Bruce Jenner.

 

By now, Bruce Jenner has revealed his struggle with gender dysphoria.
I never would have dared to speak on this issue before he was comfortable enough to do so first. It is, after all, his truth, so I knew he should be afforded the dignity to reveal that truth on his own time and in the way he sees fit.
I have respectfully kept his secrets private and would have taken his confidences to my grave had he not spoken out.
But now, many years into his remarkable life, he has spoken out. His legacy will likely be sprinkled with references like “Olympian,” “decathlon gold medalist,” “world’s greatest athlete,” “son,” “brother,” “husband,” “father,” “grandfather,” “friend,” and, hopefully, “pioneer” and “trailblazer for the civil rights of the transgender community.”
Can you imagine Bruce and his family living with this secret for 30 years?

Abercrombie Fitch Fire Male Models

abercrombie male models fired

WHY?

Abercrombie Fitch is firing all their Male Models!

The brand will no longer promote sexual marketing and they will make the stores  BRIGHTER!

Whose brilliant idea was this?

The trademark hotties are going the way of the dinosaur, as the retailer announced the brand will discontinue the use of “sexualized marketing” at all of its locations by the end of July.

No longer will shirtless men greet you at the door of Abercrombie & Fitch. The retailer is scaling back the sexiness at all A&F and Hollister locations  and decreasing its powerful trademark aroma.

 

WTF?

Gay Money for Anti Gay Politics? WTF?

boycott OUT hotel  Fire Island Pines

WORST GAY NEW YORK

Gay men using Gay Money to Fund ANTI GAY Politics!

  • Boycott Fire Island Pines Establishments (Pavilion, Low Tea, High Tea, Botel, Botel Barracks, Pool Deck, Harbor Club, Blue Whale, Cultured Elephant), Out NYC Hotel, and XL Nightclub after owners hold reception for Senator Ted Cruz.

    FROM HRC’s WEBSITE:

    Whether the issue is marriage or protection from discrimination, Sen. Ted Cruz has consistently opposed equality for LGBT Americans. And he’s gone even further, attacking fellow Republicans for marching in pride parades, and using his opposition to marriage to win his first Senate campaign.


    imagine an America where gays forever stay second class citizens

     

    .


    Marriage: Ted Cruz led the charge to deny Texas couples marriage equality. In the Senate, he has supported a constitutional amendment that would prevent the federal government from recognizing marriage equality.
    Discrimination: Cruz has consistently opposed granting protections to LGBT Americans. Cruz has opposed both local ordinances in Texas that would protect LGBT Americans, and ENDA’s explicit federal workplace protections.Conversion Therapy: Cruz has refused to speak out against “conversion therapy” that coerces minors into “treatment” that can lead to depression and suicide.Harmful Rhetoric: Cruz has no problem about using equality as a wedge issue against fellow Republicans – he’s attacked Republicans for appearing in pride parades and suggested that he believes being gay is a “choice.” He even bragged about intervening in a case to stop a civil union.

    Significant Findings on Marriage Equality

    Says marriage is between “one man and one woman”

    Pledged to introduce Federal Constitutional Amendment opposing marriage equality

    Introduced The State Marriage Defense Act (twice) which would cede definition of marriage to states for federal purposes

    Opposed Proposition 8 ruling

    Ran for Senate based on his opposition to marriage equality

    Bragged about intervening to prevent recognition of civil union

    Said people can “vote with their feet” if they don’t like living in a state without marriage equality.

Who would have known adding the ‘click’ to the 24 track would spawn a musical revolution and inspire generations. As I sit back readily approaching my 75th birthday, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m incredibly happy that I got to work with so many great and talented artists on this new record. This is dance music, it’s disco, it’s electronic, it’s here for you.  Once you listen… you’ll feel it… déjà vu.”

Bill to Protect Homeless Youth

lgbt HOMELESS-YOUTH

Yesterday, Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) and Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) introduced H.R. 1779, the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act, to reauthorize the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA).

The reauthorization recognizes the needs of all young people, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth experiencing homelessness. Research continues to show that while LGBT youth make up just seven percent of the general youth population, they comprise 40 percent of the 1.6 million youth that are homeless in America each year.

“We have a responsibility to help the most vulnerable,” said Rep. Reichert. “Many of our most vulnerable are children who have for one reason or another been forced to live on the streets. Too often we fail to see these kids and we leave them without opportunities to rebuild their lives. This bill will help us to fix that, and it will help us provide shelter for children in need and set them up to become successful adults.”

RHYA is our nation’s only federal law that specifically funds vital services for homeless youth, including street outreach, basic shelter, and transitional living programs.

“This legislation will help us meet our responsibility to combat youth homelessness and ensure that homeless young people in America have a place to seek shelter and find safety,” said Rep. Yarmuth. “When a child is homeless, they don’t just lose the security of a safe place to sleep, they miss out on opportunities for future success.”

“I applaud Congressmen Reichert and Yarmuth for introducing the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act,” said Cyndi Lauper, Co-Founder of the True Colors Fund. “No young person deserves to be homeless, but they do deserve to have access to safe, supportive, and inclusive services if they find themselves on the streets. The time to act is now, because homeless youth don’t have the time for us to wait until tomorrow.”

The True Colors Fund strongly supports this Act, which strengthens critical services in the effort to end youth homelessness.

Born This Way Foundation and YALE

born-this-way-foundation-YALE

Today, the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, in partnership with Born This Way Foundation, launched the Emotion Revolution initiative to build awareness of the critical role emotions play in young people’s learning, decision-making, and overall wellness.

 

The initiative will begin with an unprecedented online survey of high-school age youth nation-wide, exploring how young people feel, how they want to feel, and how to bridge the gap between the two. This data will strengthen the scientific understanding of how to most effectively build positive school climates and empower young people with the emotional tools they need to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. The survey is available at EmotionRevolution.org beginning today, April 9, 2015.

 

Results from the survey will be presented at the Emotion Revolution Summit in October. Hosted at Yale University, the Summit will feature youth participants from around the country as well as special guests, including Yale President Peter Salovey, Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence Director Marc Brackett, and Born This Way Foundation Co-Founders Cynthia Germanotta and Lady Gaga.

The summit will serve as a platform to unveil the findings of the study as well as offer youth the opportunity to share their ideas for creating improved learning environments with key educators, academics, and policy makers. A major goal of the summit is to create momentum around the national social and emotional learning (SEL) movement and to provide youth and educators with the resources they need to accelerate positive changes in their schools and communities.

The need for an Emotion Revolution has never been greater. Far too many young people today are feeling overwhelmed, isolated, and bored. According to the American Psychological Association, for the first time high school-age youth are feeling more stressed than adults. Left unchecked, such emotions can impair mental and physical health, interfere with learning, and hinder prospects for future success. The Emotion Revolution is dedicated to helping to reverse these trends.

 

“Born This Way Foundation is excited to partner with the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence on this important initiative,” said Cynthia Germonatta, Co-Founder and President of Born This Way Foundation. “Our organizations are dedicated to empowering young people in order to make the world a kinder and braver place. This survey is a fundamental step towards accomplishing that goal.”

 

“Emotions drive learning, decision making, relationships, and health. Research has shown us repeatedly that the skills of emotional intelligence profoundly impact a person’s ability to thrive – academically, personally, and professionally,” said Marc Brackett, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. “The Emotion Revolution survey will allow us to take the emotional temperature of young people around the country, improving our understanding of how to best equip them with the tools they need to succeed in every facet of life.”

BREAKING! Barry Manilow is GAY

barry manilow GAY

WHO KNEW?

71 year old Barry Manilow  is GAY!

NATIONAL ENQUIRER says, BARRY MANILOW secretly married his longtime male lover in a ceremony at the couple’s Palm Springs  home last April.

…the happy duo did not file the paperwork to formalize their union out of fear the big news would leak, sources said.

“Barry is paranoid that his fans would not approve of him being gay, when in reality, many have suspected it for years – and most wouldn’t care, the source said. “They would be happy for him!”

Palm Springs neighbors  Siegfried and Roy were  the best men ….. oh, I am just kidding. Suzanne Somers was best man. REALLY.

People magazine is reporting that they have confirmed the wedding from multiple sources.

According to People, Manilow’s rep is refusing to comment on the reports.

The couple have been together 30 years.

Actor, Producer, Activist, bids his fans farewell as he moves on to a new phase in his career.

With over 60 acting credits and 30 years of acting  to his name, Allen has truly made a mark in Hollywood. Today, the 40-year old tells us that he has come to a crossroad that is leading him down a different path. As Allen closes the door on acting, he will head off on a new adventure.

In typical Chad Allen fashion, he made a final farewell video for his fans wherein he gave special thanks to all those who have supported his work, his charities and his career.  And, because he is just this kind of guy, he also made special recognition of his number one fan and webmaster, Ken Clark, who ran his website for a decade.  At Chad’s request, the website will end in June.

Oakland A’s Support Gays!

oakland a lgbt gay night california

Oakland Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend, Eireann Dolan, stepped in to head off what she described as a negative response to the team’s first LGBT Pride Night this coming season, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Late last week, Dolan offered to buy tickets for the A’s June 17th game against San Diego, saying several season ticket holders were refusing to attend and trying to sell their tickets because they were uncomfortable with the event.

“If you’d like to sell your tickets to June 17th’s LGBT Pride Night game, I will buy them from you at face value. As many as I can. No judgments. No questions asked,” she wrote on her blog. “From there, I will donate any tickets I purchase to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBTQ youth.”

She revealed in the post that her biological mother is part of a same-sex couple living in San Diego.

“In fact I’m starting to suspect that the Athletics focus-grouped this event idea with just my two moms and nobody else,” she wrote. “It couldn’t be any more perfectly tailored to my moms than if the team announced that NPR’s Terry Gross will also be throwing out the first pitch and there will be a free notepad giveaway on which my moms can write down all of the reasons I should have majored in something more practical in college.”

On Monday, Dolan said, Doolittle agreed to match her donations up to $3,000. She also started an online fundraising campaign to purchase more seats to donate to the youth center group.

Wrestler Mike Pucillo Comes Out

mike-pucillo gay wrestling wrestler

OHIO STATE’s  Mike  Pucillo  come  out.

For months, the NCAA wrestling champion from Ohio State had tried time and again to share his biggest secret, but he couldn’t bring himself to verbalize two words.

Finally, on a December morning, Pucillo reached for his phone and tapped out a lengthy text message to his best friend and college teammate, Reece Humphrey.

The gist of the message was this: I’m gay.

“I think telling him was an unbelievable weight off my shoulders (and) I didn’t think I would feel that good just telling him,” said Pucillo, the first openly gay Division-I national champion wrestler. “Reece has always been someone with a very open mind and I thought maybe he would understand.”

Gays Discriminate Against Christians

gays-against-christians

WHAT IF ….gays  discriminated  against Christians?  We quit doing there flowers, we quit cutting their  hair, we don’t serve them drinks or food in bars or restaurants, we don’t  provide ANY SERVICES FOR THEM?!

This is Truth Wins Out’s second video in its “Religious Freedom Farce” campaign, which highlights the real-world consequences of laws that purport to protect religious liberty, when in reality they only promote exclusion. In our new video, we show how such laws can open a can of worms and backfire on the “Christian” sponsors of such bills.

“If LGBT people can be discriminated against based on faith, so can Christians,” said Truth Wins Out Executive Director Wayne Besen. “There are millions of Americans who are not Christian and may abuse these laws to exclude people based on their Christian beliefs. This, of course, would be unacceptable and wrong, but one of the many unintended consequences of these divisive laws that promote prejudice.”

In our latest ad, a gay man who runs a theater company forbids a Christian from buying tickets to a show after he sees a cross hanging from his neck. Citing the “Church of Harvey Fierstein,” he directs the Christian to go to a theater that shows “Passion of the Christ.” This is a plausible example of what could occur under such ridiculous bills that allow the gutting of anti-discrimination laws based on declarations of “sincere” faith. The video dramatization was created for Truth Wins Out by Chicago-based performance artist Eric Clements and filmmaker Ben Nissen.

“We are actually putting judges in the untenable position of deciding whose faith is sincere and whose is not,” said Truth Wins Out’s Executive Director Wayne Besen. “These laws also violate separation of church and state, because courts will be required to decide which religions are real and which are concocted for the sole purpose of discrimination. But doesn’t that unconstitutionally create ‘acceptable’ state sponsored religions, while others are decaled officially unacceptable?”

The first ad in our campaign, “Religious Freedom Café,” takes these “religious freedom” bills to their logical conclusion. It focuses on an African American man who is told to leave a restaurant because serving black people is against the owner’s religious beliefs.   WATCH  NOW

#TheGaySweater Project

 

the-gay-sweater-project

 

You’ve probably heard it, if not said it yourself, but you’ll be certain to think twice about using a phrase like “that sweater is so gay” after hearing this story. A one-of-a-kind, first-ever, truly ‘gay sweater’ will be unveiled today during Toronto Fashion Week. What makes it gay? It is custom knit from the donated hair of more than 100 LGBT people committed to changing the way the word “gay” is used in society today.

 

gay-hair-sweater-project

Debuting just in time, ahead of this summer’s upcoming Pride Week celebrations in Toronto, New York, San Francisco and London, The Gay Sweater was created by the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) to spark a rich dialogue on what makes something ‘gay’. Through #TheGaySweater project, they hope people will understand that it is incorrect and offensive to use language like ‘that’s so gay’ to negatively describe something.

 

A short film showcasing the inspiration behind this #TheGaySweater and the making of this unusual piece can be viewed here: thegaysweater.ccgsd-ccdgs.org

This is pretty cool!

More Supporters #BoycottDolceGabbana

andy cohens dolce gabbana suit

They say any publicity is good publicity…but in the case of Dolce and Gabbana, they must be regretting their comments  right about now!  The public  backlash has been huge!

Bravo host Andy Cohen, who just announced the launch of his own SiriusXM channel, had a special message on the Monday, March 16 episode of Watch What Happens Live! in regards to the comments.

 “As a gay man, I’ve seen my friends given an incredible opportunity to create very real families,” Cohen, 46, said. “There’s nothing ‘synthetic’ about any of the kids that call me Uncle Andy. So in the interest of making things a little better, I brought this from my own closet.”

Cohen then pulled out a 2014 black wool Dolce & Gabbana suit, declaring his intention to auction it off and donate all of the proceeds to the Family Equality Council.

“Even though I love this suit, it wouldn’t be fun for me to wear it again,” he said. “But it will be so much fun for me to have you wear it, knowing we were able to support an amazing cause while also screwing Dolce & Gabbana out of at least one sale.”

The suit, which retails for between $1,100 and $2,000, is being auctioned on eBay with a current bid of around $3,500. 

Madonna   said   on Instagram:All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families. There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak.,,,,,,,,,,,❤️#livingforlove

Scott Weston aka Cashetta Dies

scott-weston-cashetta-died-2015-puerto-vallarta

An outrageously talented comic, singer, magician & psychic entertainer, Scott Weston aka “Cashetta” passed away suddenly March 16, 2015. He died in Puerto Vallarta Mexico while sleeping, according to friends. The cause of death was not immediately known.

Weston’s Cashetta was born in the late 1980s, when as a teenager, he and his friends “would dress up in the craziest and most artistic outfits we could put together with bits and pieces from craft stores and each other’s mother’s wardrobes.” What began as a dance floor lark, emerged in the mid ’90’s as a professional pursuit.

In a sea of legendary drag stars like Sherry Vine and Jackie Beat, Cashetta would set herself apart with a unique blend of cabaret and comedy. “My favorite memories were every ‘Wigstock’ (street festival) with Lady Bunny, sharpening my comic chops six nights a week at Lips restaurant and being a featured songstress at the legendary Bar d’O with Joey Arias, Raven O and Sade Pendarvis,” Cashetta said.

But it was as a magician that Cashetta would make a mark in the business and lead her to numerous television appearances that included stints on “The Today Show,” “Conan O’Brien” and the “Outlaugh Festival – Wisecrack” on Logo with Margaret Cho.

CASHETTA.com

Weston’s passing is mourned on social media by the scores of show business professionals with whom Cashetta shared a stage. “A talented and hilarious performer and the nicest man ever,” said comedian Jim David, who worked numerous gay cruises with Cashetta.

“An inspiration as a performer and a human. This is such an incredibly sad day.” Said multiple Grammy Award nominated singer Marty Thomas.

In a tribute to Cashetta on her Facebook page, drag artist Gusty Winds wrote: “What I am feeling right now is beyond words. Cashetta firmly believed in the “beyond”, so as soon as she is done harassing Harry Houdini and Totie Fields, I know she is gonna pay me a visit.”

Is James Franco GAY?

james franco gay art interview

Wouldn’t it be great if James Franco and his cute brother Dave Franco were BOTH GAY?

James Franco does  flirt  with sexuality and gayness, that’s  for sure!  With three films slated for this spring—True Story, I Am Michael, and Wim Wenders’s Everything Will Be Fine—James Franco continues to be the busiest man in show business. Actor, director, producer, writer, poet, professor, social media maven, and cultural provocateur, he also continues to challenge us by challenging himself about preconceived concepts of sexuality and how they fit contextually into his art.
