Some marriage proposals are a meticulously planned, romantic masterpiece. Others involve a ring made of chicken.
Even if your proposal isn’t everything you dreamed of, just remember: It’s only the beginning of the journey. And if that’s not reassuring, at least you didn’t accidentally eat your engagement ring inside of a cupcake. (Unless you did, in which case we are so sorry.)
After a series of highly mocked teaser photos and serious fan anticipation, the Season 5 trailer for Downton Abbey is finally out. From secret whisperings and brewing romance to a roaring fire that looks threatening enough to bring the house down, things are looking dramatic as ever for the Crawley family
Although the season will hit the UK on Sunday, Sept. 25, U.S. audiences will have to wait until its return to PBS on Jan. 4, 2015.
NOVOAZOVSK, Ukraine — Rebel soldiers, a tank and separatist flags are some of the first warnings that all is not calm along the quiet rural road leading up to this village of in southeast Ukraine.
The entrance to the village is manned by a group of separatists. Next to them are army trucks with the flag of Novorossiya – or New Russia – the symbol of separatists’ aspirations to create an independent state from parts of east Ukraine.
This area along the northern coast of the Sea of Azov is the heart of the latest front in the months-long struggle over the fate of eastern Ukraine
This is a bit of a stunner since Apple normally likes to keep the spotlight on one major product for each media event. We would have expected Apple to announce the iPhone 6 in September, then a month later come back with the iWatch in its own even.
Ken Segall, a former Apple advertising executive, kicks around why Apple may have decided to go with one event for both products. He pretends he’s in the room with Apple’s marketing executives who are debating whether or not to do two product launches at once, and he lands on this conclusion:
There are two big, juicy reasons to combine the iPhone and iWatch events. This would be the biggest event in Apple history, at a time when people have dared to question us. And — these are two products that are made to work together.
Like you just said, Apple has never combined two revolutionary products this way. So what. We will now stand Apple tradition on its head. This will be Tim’s blockbuster moment, forever etched in history. Can you not imagine the extraordinary buzz from one monster over-the-top event, three months before the holidays?
This is a case where the whole is absolutely greater than the sum of its parts. One earthshaking event has more value than two “typical” Apple events.
I can see it now: we get an hour’s worth of theatrics and demos for the new iPhone models, followed by the launch of Apple’s long-awaited “next revolution.” And then the kicker. Tim says: “You’ve seen the new iPhone. You’ve seen the fabulous new iWatch. Each is amazing on its own — but just wait till you see what they can do together.”
Alcohol and baked goods: two great things that taste even better together.
If you need a bit of kick in your cake, try these booze-filled sweets. Ranging from sweet and alcoholic cherry tartlets to the dark decadence of a irish cream brownie, these baked goods recipes are a true two-for-one.
