The government wants to tell you how to properly - and safely - roast marshmallows. We ask the important questions, such as: are they trying to suck the fun out of campfires? Is this a cover so that they can realign s'mores to meet the First Lady's exacting nutrition standards? How many of the key components can one remove from a s'more before it ceases to be a s'more?
Also: How is the removal of a bacon sign like the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange? And the related question: how is a vegan like a terrorist?

Milling About visits Bang Candy Company in Nashville, Tennessee where handmade gourmet marshmallows are the bomb! There's all types of confection creations designed by owner Sarah Souther. Sarah came to Nashville by way of Ireland and the idea for her candy company started over dinner with a friend when her dessert contained a handmade marshmallow. She tells host Robin Milling, 'I thought, wow, people make marshmallows! I went home and I messed around in my cupboard and I found some cardamom and some rose. I thought, ooh I'll make a rose cardamom marshmallow! It's very simple; gelatin, some syrup and you whip it up until it gains volume, cools, traps the air bubbles and then you have this lovely spongy substance.'
A big hit at a potluck party, Sarah was convinced she could make a business out of her designer marshmallows and she did. She jokes how she first would 'deal marshmallows' to friends in parking lots but then expanded to a 'shed on wheels' to cart her sweets around town called The Cocoa Van. Their home now is a former car factory for Marathon Motor cars right next door to the Antique Archeology shop where American Pickers began.
There are literally endless ways to flavor a marshmallow and Sarah has tried them all taking full advantage of her neighboring distilleries including black currant absinthe, maple bacon bourbon and spicy margarita, as well as chocolate chili and toasted coconut almond; then dipped one by one on a diagonal in chocolate. Sarah says it's time consuming but well worth it and encourages anyone to try making marshmallows at home. Recipes are at http://www.bangcandycompany.com/
None of us really like it when trials enter into our lives. It hurts and makes like very uncomfortable to us. Just as bad, if not worse is when temptation begins to knock at our door. Why not answer that door? Well, when we are tempted our faith is always at risk. When we jump into our sin all of a sudden the things that were so easy to believe in somehow become much more difficult to the point that we just begin to distance ourselves altogether from Jesus, the one who loves us and has the best for us. I believe every follower of Jesus longs to have to overcome temptation and live boldly for God. So how do we do it? Listen in today as Dave Johnston shares how you can "resist the Marshmallows."

An irreligious romp, looking at our culture, its inexorable slide toward destruction, and the fun we can have along the way.
This is precisely as dreadful as it sounds, so come along and meet golems, Slendermen, corporate logos, and things that go "BUY ME!" in the night. Also, why the internet is the grease for our skidding toward Perdition!
Much walker-rattling and cane-shaking along the way.
Thanks to Clyde Lewis for knocking some thoughts into a semblance of order in my mental thinking.

Catch the last days of winter at Fireside Sleigh Rides in North Conway, New Hampshire. Joining host Robin Milling are owners Jason and Heather Blakeney; brother and sister equestrian experts who took their love and expertise with horses hitching them to a romantic sleigh ride through snowy trails along the Saco River. Homeschooled, Jason tells Robin they would do their homework on horseback and both have degrees in equestrian studies so starting a business together where horses were involved was a natural progression.
Arrive at a quaint log cabin office where hot apple Cider and hot chocolate awaits to take along on the ride. Jason takes out the sleigh led by Percherons named Freckles and Pretty Face with Freckles' foal in training leading the way or taking a break to nurse! Unnamed at the time, Jason jokes that patrons were all giving their ideas based on his shiny black coat such as Darth Vader for starters. They went with Pecos (like the river that flows through New Mexico and Texas).
There is the private sleigh ride with room for four but two is always better for the full coziness of snuggling under warm wool blankets. Or if you want a party 'Big Red,' the Bob Sled can accommodate 10 adults and eight children. Both rides end up at a fire pit complete with sticks and marshmallows ready for toasting. Or bring your own chocolate and graham crackers and you can make S'mores.
If you miss the snow, trail and wagon rides are available during the summer at their farm in Brownfield, Maine.
