Cake Recipes
 
Monday, August 21st is my birthday and I was asked about my favorite cake. That is a difficult question since I like many of them. I recall the fresh coconuts that my mother used for cakes when I was a kid. My job was to sit on the back steps to break the coconuts and to cut out the coconut for her to use. And, my thoughts turn to those wonderful carrot cakes and German chocolate cakes. Selecting favorites will require further study.

Recommended PC Support: Chris Porreco at PC-TEKS
 
During a recent thunderstorm, there was a nearby lightning strike that caused us to lose our internet connection. The guy from Comcast was very nice and installed a new modem but was unable to restore our local network and access to our printers.
We called Chris Porreco at PC-TEKS for help. He came to our home and restored our network and computer connections. When you need PC support, we recommend calling Chris. We have used Chris Porreco for many years.
