This one is underrated; but it really affected me when I first saw it. “All in the Family.” Edith’s drag queen friend, Beverly LaSalle, is gunned down. To tackle a hate crime like this in the 70’s was incredible.

Okay, so I’m halfway into “A Storm of Swords,” the third book in George RR Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. If you intend to read it - stop here for this will contain spoilers. For those who HAVE read it, I’d love your thoughts.
Gwyneth Paltrow. What the hell is wrong with your face? World’s Most Beautiful woman, indeed.
I honestly cannot stand this woman and I’m not the only one. Her mind-boggling disconnect when it comes to the average person’s finances … The admitted underfeeding of her family … The overwhelming pretentiousness. I just can’t.
And I rarely dislike an actress so intensely. Every time I hear her speak, it makes my skin crawl. I don’t even. I don’t even.
I prayed for my son Bran to survive his fall. Many years before that, one of the boys came down with the pox. Maester Luwin said if he made it through the night, he’d live, but it would be a very long night. So I sat with him all through the darkness, listening to his ragged little breaths, his coughing and his whimpering.
Hey guys! I can’t thank you enough for the support I’ve received and apologize for the delays.
I’ve been retinkering my initial launch items. I’ve decided to make the jarcakes a focus. I need to do some product tests with them, though. Sorry for the delays! I just want to make sure I get the best product out to you possible.
I will tease, however, I’m working on a bacon-maple jarcake. Hopefully it works out the way I hope. Fingers crossed!
Thanks again for your patience and support. You’re all amazing,
Hello! Your upcoming Vira's Vittles intrigues me, as an enjoyer of baked goods, and I have a question. I have severe nut allergies. I've had a near-fatal reaction to almonds (almond extract, specifically), and I avoid all other tree nuts as a rule. So, my question is: will any of your vittles contain tree nuts or nut extracts, and would I be able to request no nuts? (You can answer this privately or publicly, it matters not to me.) (Hope you're having a lovely weekend.)
The Jarcakes and Conecakes will have no nuts unless a flavor is chosen specifically asking for such (banana-nut, etc.)
I’m working on products to accommodate those with nut allergies and also looking into gluten-free items. Mind you, I’m going to try to introduce a new product every two weeks or so.
I’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries from foreign residents looking to buy from Vira’s Vittles once it’s launched. I’ll ship anywhere as long as the customer covers the additional shipping fee. I’m going to find the average weights of my products and get some preliminary figures from the post office to make sure the pricing for international shipping is fair and spot on.
Because international shipping can be so expensive, I plan to launch an “Non-US Special” which will consist of mixed cookies - the lightest product I can make and also the ones that stay freshest during shipping (excluding jarcakes,) and will be packaged in the lightest containers possible.
Thank you all for the support. I welcome any advice or ideas you may have.
