    I’m a big fan of the cake-in-a-mug recipe, too. In fact, I’m also the author of “101 Recipes for Microwave Mug Cakes” that builds on this recipe (but, hopefully, adds some ideas and baking tips for those who love microwave mug cakes as much as I do). Check it out at

    Marines to hold umbrellas for both himself and the Turkish
    Prime Minister, in direct violation of official Marine
    Corps uniform regulations, the current occupant of the
    White House has elected not to return the hand salute rendered by a
    young Marine assigned to the Presidential Security
    Detail aboard the presidential helo correctly known as Marine Corps One, as reported by the right of center The Weekly Standard magazine on May 24, 2013.
    Bush’s salute was sloppy and would have warranted a few words
    with a Sergeant Major, but was generally in line with AR 600-25, Obama’s was not.
    ” The George Soros-funded Media Matters, eager to bash conservatives, dismissed it as a “silly Obama scandal.
