"Hand-kneaded bread has more soul."

Helen's busy kneading away for National Date Nut Bread Day, although if she wanted to get out the bread machine I promise I won't tell Willow. Then again, I'm not sure I'd want to taste anything baked by Helen "every night is frozen lasagna night" Morgendorffer.

On this day in 1921, the first Miss America was crowned. Apparently the winner was not named "Darya," and in fact appears to have no Y in her name whatsoever. There goes that theory, I guess.
