Graduation is an exciting time, but let's face it: Commencement speeches aren't always memorable. A completely unscientific poll of the GOOD office revealed that almost none of us recall our college commencement speakers, or what they said to us (although we suspect it was something like, "You've worked hard!

Never Eat Canned Soup Again! 11 Delicious Vegetarian Soup And Stew Recipes

There are few meals as simple as opening a can of soup, plopping the contents into a pot or bowl and heating it up.

And if you're going for healthier, more locally made soups then you are probably paying what feels like a small fortune. Take control of your kitchen and food budget by making these soups for yourself. You can put them in individual containers and store them in the fridge and freezer so you can have the same level of convenience but for less money and a much greater level of satisfaction.

At this time of year, when traditions abound, I’d like to stick a lump of coal in a corporate stocking or two.
