Sunday... leftovers from the week - but they are TASTY!


Just when the whole healthy food thing might catch on, SPINACH CAN KILL YOU!

Let's not lose sight of the fact that the company responsible for the bad spinach is named "Natural Selection."

Hello, Darwin?

Big Medical News!

5 cups of coffee a day might keep memory loss away!

Researchers say they have been testing the effects of long-term caffeine intake on mice – and it appears to REDUCE the risk of Alzheimers! (that explains the mice at Starbucks)

Shopping Carts with TV Screens???

This could be the final confirmation that The End is near!

Something called "TV Kart" is being tested in certain parts of the country… grocery carts equipped with small tv screens in the area where the kids are sitting!

So far, more than 2,000 TV Karts have been deployed at supermarkets in eight states, mostly in the Midwest. Publix and Wal-Mart are among the chains testing their popularity.

For $1, shoppers can rent the brightly colored carts, which play an hourlong DVD of whichever children's television show adorns the side — "Barney," "Bob the Builder" or "The Wiggles."

They each look more like a toy car than a shopping cart, with oversized doors on the sides and a narrow bench on which up to two children can sit, buckle up and watch the TV in the dashboard. (The screens are about the size of a TV dinner, and cart-pushers can hardly hear the audio.) Overhead, there are two storage bins offering rather limited space for parents to pack their groceries, a frequent complaint of the parents.

Just another case of a great piece of technology being used for the WRONG purpose ---Don't put Barney or the damn Wiggles on these.. put ESPN --- Football or Baseball on them! Men would be able to spend quality time shopping with their wives!
