All good things about rice and how to prepare it

Rice has been cooked on stoves or over open flames for centuries.  But for the modern kitchen, a rice cooker is a simple and efficient way to cook rice.   When used properly, a rice cooker will give you perfectly made rice every time.

How You Can Help Your Asthmatic Child

How You Can Help Your Asthmatic Child

I don’t know about you, but when my child has an asthma attack, it is one of the scariest moments of my life. Seconds can feel like minutes, and minutes can feel like hours. Watching my daughter struggle to breathe is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to experience. She has her rescue inhaler, but that doesn’t always help right away. I have done a lot of research to see how I can help relieve her symptoms as soon as possible, and have found that there are some…

Beautiful, But Weird Flowers

Beautiful, But Weird Flowers

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, beauty can also be both strange and wonderful at the same time. Some would even say beauty can be both frightening and beautiful in the same moment. I believe all these things apply to this collection of weird flowers. Most of them look like something you would find on a alien planet or in some B movie from the 50s or 60s, yet they are right here on our wonderful planet.

I see what you did there – Phallic Ice Cream Scoop from Williams-Sonoma

I see what you did there – Phallic Ice Cream Scoop from Williams-Sonoma

You can never be sure if something like this is intentional, subconscious or just an honest mistake. Either way it is certainly humorous. Williams-Sonoma has a Rösle Ice Cream Scoop for sale at their site and they have, seemingly, strategically positioned their ice cream scoop delicately between two purple scoops of ice cream. This peculiar positioning leads this innocent shopper to the conclusion that Williams-Sonoma is trying to do some manipulative sales with this phallic ice cream + two ice cream balls.

Downtown Disney: Disney’s experiment in urban living

THE PEOPLE OF DISNEY have finally come to the end of a decades-long debate over the expansion of Walt’s first theme park.  After seeing deals falter and fail in various neighboring cities, Disney returned to its home turf and spent much of the nineties developing a parcel of Anaheim land into their latest park, California Adventure, an ersatz Golden State that promises citrus groves, hiking, and “the Bay Area” conveniently gathered in one theme park, and just a hop away from the Matterhorn. Perhaps the most exotic feature of this…

Acrobatic Archers and Brave Crowds

Acrobatic Archers and Brave Crowds

I must admit that I wouldn’t have the same faith, bravery or stupidity confidence to stand behind the target this Afghan archer is aiming for at this archery contest. He is either the Afgan version of Robin Hood or he has some very, very trusting friends. I’d like to see another photograph about 15 seconds after this one. Hopefully it didn’t look like this: But even if he hit the target, you don’t give him much for style points. Take a look at this female archer/acrobat and tell me she…
