* use Doritos as kindling

it’s almost officially summer

and for those of you who enjoy camping or just a good bonfire,

here’s a  hack that’s a win-win in my book.

*(important note: don’t forget to hide them from the family/friends, as they may disappear)

Fire won’t start? Not a problem! We got you! If you don’t want to spend money on expensive fire starters go ahead and stop by your local grocery store and pick up a bag of Doritos. These dense, oily, corn chips are combustible, ideal kindling for starting a fire, and will last for a long time. Bonus Tip: We heard that if you get the Flaming Hot Doritos they light up even faster!

 

“the online music magazine pitchfork once wrote that

i would collaborate with anyone for a bag of doritos.”

what remains.

Standard

after many hours spent in the kinder playhouse

art, memories, stories, and a beautiful view of the world

are what still remain.

like an antique clock built when peace filled the world.”

on the last day.

Standard

on the last day

in the last hour

of a wild ride

in a year of ups and downs

we all made it through

 the kinder emerged stronger than ever

taking a final gentle walk

into the sunshowers of summer.

Completely Customize Your Breakfast

With a Touchscreen Toaster

That Has 60 Different Settings

Revolution/Amazon
Toasters seem to have a mind of their own. One day your bagel pops out perfectly golden brown, and the next, the same setting burns it to a crisp. Revolution’s touchscreen toaster ($280) looks to take the guesswork out of your morning routine by offering 60 different toast settings for basically any form of carbohydrate you throw in there.

This toaster, which sports a 4.4-star rating on Amazon, works just as well with frozen waffles and multi-grain bread as it does for Pop-Tarts and bakery-fresh bagels. All you have to do is program the toaster with what food you want to crisp, the state it’s in (frozen, fresh, etc.), and what color level you want it to be when it pops out.

Once set, the countdown clock will start and an alarm will ring to let you know when it’s done. There’s even a built-in mechanism that adjusts to the size of whatever you’re toasting to ensure all of your food pops out high enough to grab safely with your fingers. The Revolution toaster doesn’t require any pre-heating time, and the company claims it’s 35 percent faster than other versions.

personal note:

this stresses me out just reading about it,

i would need a tech geek to come with the toaster.

“television is like the american toaster, you push the button and the same thing pops up every time.”

tohubohu.

Standard

today, someone decided

to quietly dump every single puzzle out onto the floor

mix the pieces together

then head up to the loft to play.

it was left in a perfect state of tobubohu

but somehow i couldn’t think of that word

at the moment of discovery

 tomorrow we will work on it together

and with it will come a new word.

toh-hoo-BOH-hoo

part of speech: noun

origin: hebrew, unknown

1. a state of chaos, utter confusion

examples in a sentence:

“The mayor’s unexpected announcement left the press in a tohubohu.”

“After recess the students were always in a tohubohu.”

anyone else ever achieve this perfect state?

energy and daring.

Standard

We remember the life and lasting legacy of Robert F. Kennedy
and his commitment to a more just and peaceful world with his words:
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal… he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,
and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring,
those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest wall of oppression and resistance.”
