    The headlines say one thing, the ruling says another, but no one cares. God beat the evil gays today, and Fox is loving it. I want to move again. OUT ...

    The reason 8 oz of flour is different than 8 oz of liquid is they are completely different. A cup is a measure of volume only while ounces are measured by volume and by weight. Measure solids by weight and liquids by volume.

    You can measure the weight of 1 cup of flour 3 times and get 3 weights. If you fill a cup then tap it on the countertop, you will create more space at the top by packing the flour down. Then you have less than a cup of flour, so you'll add more flour until the cup is full. The more loosely packed, the more air in the cup (which weighs zero but occupies space). A packed cup of flour will weigh significantly more than a loosely packed cup and neither will weigh the same as a cup of water, which does not weigh the same as a cup of oil or milk.

    Therefore when you see a reference to "one cup of flour" it is an approximation. You cannot measure ounces of a solid in a measuring cup for volume of liquid.

    You're right - baking is chemistry, and it's all about precise weights and measures.

    If only healthcare worked this way... sigh. I am undergoing treatment for a blood disease and have infusions with a large amount of blood drawn (500 units) every other week. I looked it up and discovered "unit" can mean just anout anything. In my case, a unit is 1.25 mg, but others call a unit 1mg. Some call 1 unit 100mg or 500mg. I had to ask the nurse exactly how much was coming out. When she told me, I said thankfully you're not baking a cake!If only healthcare worked this way... sigh.

    I laughed when you pronounced it, because they made it a topic of discussion on TMZ a while back.

    I'm finally back in the kitchen, and wanted to celebrate last night with a fabulous and healthy dinner. I started with stuffed scallops, followed by citrus herb rubbed Atlantic salmon, parmesan risotto, rainbow carrots and grilled asparagus with hollandaise, served with a hearty vegetable, bean and barley soup. Note: I did NOT eat all of this in one sitting!I'm finally back in the kitchen, and wanted to celebrate last night with a fabulous and healthy dinner.

    Avicii left behind a girlfriend and stepson. She posted an open letter on instagram and a lovely photo album. They kept the relationship private and were planning to have a child together. https://www.instagram.com/p/BiDqPkWgdEt/

    It makes even less sense now. If he had plans...I don't get it. And who knows the complexity or nature of the relationship. It's just all so tragic.

    It is tragic. She didn't even believe it was true when she first heard the news.
