seen a big trend in dump cakes. so the cake you're making today is right on the mark since it combines both of these trends. thanks merly. for the cake, all we do is add some evaporated milk, a few eggs, some brown sugar and a few spices to a can of solid pack pumpkin. once that's mixed, we spread it in a 9" x 13" dish and sprinkle on a box of white cake mix. yup, right from the box, not made according to the package directions. ok, we top that with some butter and top that with some chopped pecans and a few cinnamon baking chips. after this bakes and it passes the toothpick test, we let it cool. and the nice thing about dump cakes is that they're so easy to make. i do hope you'll go online and get the recipe for what we call, "autumn pumpkin dump cake," so you can be armed with a dessert that is not only

fans of "back to the future" are counting down-- this wednesday -- october 21th, 2015 is the day that marty mcfly and doc brown landed in the future in the second film. so where are all of the hover boards and jaws 19? todd leopold shows us what the original film got right in its depiction of 2015. " doc: we are descending towards hill valley, california, at 4.29pm, on wednesday, october 21st, 2015. marty: 2015? you mean we're in the future? jennifer: future, marty? what do you mean? how can we be in the future? marty: uh jennifer, i don't know how to tell you this, but...you're in a time machine. jennifer: and this is the year 2015? doc: october 21st 2015. yes, october twenty first, twenty fifteen has arrived. but where are all the flying cars? a lot of the stuff marty mcfly saw in his future is reality today. the headsets being worn at the dinner table, well we have

google glass. they also look strikingly similar to samsung's gear vr and the oculus rift. and yes video conferencing, as when marty has a fight with his boss, is also real. and it's another prediction of the future that "back to the future" nailed. marty also had self-lacing shoes, in 2011 nike auctioned off one-thousand, five-hundred replicas but it was missing an important feature. "i'm hoping a future release will solve my shoe tying problems for good.' speaking of waiting - in the movie, the movie the cubs win the world series, ending a more than 100-year drought that still exists today. and and with the cubs in the playoffs there's still a chance this one could come true. of course, the one invention everyone wants is the hoverboard. several companies have tried to make this childhood favorite, lexus concept must stay on track. a company called hendo is developing one that works on a particular type of surface. if you want to buy one now, you're stuck with wheels. then there are the items that only exist today because of "back to the future part ii." pepsi, for example, has put out limited edition pepsi perfect bottle, just like the one marty orders in the movie. and universal has just released a fake trailer for "jaws 19." all in all, twenty fifteen has lived up to most of the promise in "back to the future" part ii. but you know, i'd still like a flying car .
