DEAR MELBA: Please ask if anyone knows where to find the sunglasses that can be clipped on your sunglasses then flipped up when not needed.

DEAR MELBA: I have lost the recipe for Pudding Cake. It's a delicious chocolate cake made with a chocolate cake mix. Before baking it, you mix milk, water, cocoa, sugar, etc., and pour over the top of the prepared mix in the pan. Please ask if anyone has this recipe.
