Our topic du jour: the latest stunning milestone in the march toward gay equality. No, the other stunning milestone. We will get around to what the Supreme Court did (more accurately, declined to do) in a moment. But first: Have you seen the new Cheerios commercial? It broke out online a few days ago, a spot starring these two gay French Canadian men and their adopted daughter, a brown-skinned (African-Canadian?) toddler named Raphaelle. In the three-minute clip, Andre and Jonathan talk about the love at first sight blind date that brought them together and how they thought they could never be dads because they are gay. All the while, Raphaelle is squirming, eating Cheerios, leaning from one father to the other and otherwise committing shameless acts of cuteness.

An appetite for almonds If you're feeling like a nut, the Almond Board of California has some ideas. For an easy snack, mix together 1/2 cup finely shredded, high-quality parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup sliced almonds. Drop in eight small piles on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Flatten each pile and bake at 400 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes. Remove and set aside until crisp, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to three days.

My husband ruined our holiday. We were all set to visit my parents with our children. But when we got to the airport he chickened out and refused to get on the plane. We flew without him and I couldn't enjoy the visit.My husband is wonderful except for an irrational fear of flying. He is not afraid of anything else, but the thought of getting on an airplane terrifies him.Is there some prescription medicine that he could take to calm him down enough to travel with the family?This year's headlines about air crashes have made it harder on folks who fear flying.

Everyone's favorite singing misfits from William McKinley High School are back. Okay. Maybe not everyone's favorites. But if you're a diehard Gleek like me, then you've been waiting all summer for the premiere of season three and Tuesday's episode did not disappoint. After a crushing loss at nationals at the end of season two, my fave TV teacher crush Mr. Schuester tries to uplift the members of New Directions and recruit new members with the Purple Piano Project. Basically, they have to perform a routine wherever Mr. Schu randomly places a...you guessed it...purple piano.

Pam Tabor vividly recalled a day in high school when she asked her Algebra II teacher, "Why is x to the zero power 1 and not zero?" to which the teacher responded, "That's just the way it is, Pam. Just accept it and go on." She decided that math was illogical, and therefore not something to be pursued. But then she had the opportunity to ask a college professor the same question, and he explained it to her with a simple proof. Math became sensible, and her life's passion. "From that point on, I decided that I would do everything within my power to help children make sense of mathematics," she said.

DALTON, Mass. -- Between now and March 1, when a new $1 coin goes into circulation, the U.S. Mint will be hard at work trying to convince Americans that they need it. Television advertisements, Cheerios boxes -- even a float in today's Macy's parade -- will sing the praises of the gold-colored Sacagawea dollar.But they should not waste their effort in Dalton."Frankly, I don't want it in my register," said Ruth Trapnell, 60, at the gift shop where she deals in scented candles, novelty beer steins and T-shirts that say "The Buck Starts Here."

GATCHELVILLE, Pa. -- Like a CNN anchor, 3-year-old Amanda Good offers the same bit of information to all visitors. "Mommy's got a baby in her tummy," she says with a sense of urgency and persistence.And why not? It's happy news, practically a miracle.But here's the funny part: While she's excited about the addition of a younger sibling (and positively certain it will be a girl, too), the future broadcaster doesn't realize she's left out the most surprising part.In the Good family, the words "baby" and "Mommy" are heard often enough.

WE'RE SITTING at the most popular fast food eaterie in the land. You know the one.Actually they are all pretty popular. Where else can you get a meal and a toy in three minutes?And remember, you health-food folks, the toy is the real reason we're here today.There are four 2-year-olds and their young mothers and me -- the grandmother of one of them.I don't know why I subject myself to this lunchtime carnival. Probably because I love being with my grandchild, even if it's not the Hawaii Hilton.

Got your multiple boxes of cereal ready? Ovaltine in case a Bania shows up and Bosco for a George? And don't forget the silverware and china in case anyone wants to eat a Snickers.Food figured often in "Seinfeld." The terminally adolescent gang tended to eat true to form, heavy on the Pez and Jujyfruits slice of the food pyramid and ordering the same meal after meal at Monk's diner. But this puts the hosts of various "Seinfeld" send-off parties tomorrow night in something of a quandary: What exactly is Seinfood, which you, of course, will want to serve if you've invited friends over for a Seinfete.
