16 Oct Your new favorite rolling pin…

...has nothing to do with food. It's a smaller version of the foam rollers those of us with recurring IT band/tendonitis/assorted workout injuries have a love-hate relationship with. Tiger Tail makes smaller versions of foam rollers that will fit in a carry-on, a backpack, etc.   This has been life changing for me as a frequent traveler, and someone who lives in an apartment so small that using a full sized foam roller requires moving furniture.

Apparently, at her school, if you were too embarrassed to ask a question during health class, you could write a note to the teacher, who would then address the issue. (So not the case at my school).  I thought this note was so adorable/innocent/funny (especially the part about it being "sick to inercorse"), I had to post it. ...

17 Apr I love Agway

One of my favorite stores ever. Here are some reasons why - Owls with heads that spin - Hamster wheel: Seems to suggest that you plant seeds and they sprout up looking just like the picture: Fire starter in fishing rod motif: Who needs Legos? I happen to love homemade jerky (but have never tried making it): Speaks for itself (this place is like Target for farmers. You can get pig harnesses, cow bells, and lots more): ...
