What year was the first cookbook published in the US?
1742. It was called The Accomplished Gentlewoman's Companion. Umm, that's tasty badger.
What was up with Paula last night on American Idol? The judges were asked to give their opinions of the first of two Neil Diamond songs that the contestants would sing last night. After Randy did his critique of Jason Castro's performance, it was Paula's turn. Reading from her notes, she offered her opinion of Castro's first song, then his second song. One problem. He only sang ONE song. Skeptics care calling this more evidence that the judges' opinions are already in the can before show even begins. It's sure beginning to look that way.
