Fact of the Day: Ninja Floors

In medieval Japan, it wasn't uncommon for Japanese lords to have floors that would intentionally make a lot of noise when walked on. This would help prevent assassins like ninjas from being successful.

Photo: Chiller and Donuts

This is my wife Daisy after going to Krispy Kreme to get her a chiller that was promised in their little calendar that we got in December of last year. We chose strawberry, and I tasted it. Like I figured, it was okay but it's just not my cup of tea. My wife Daisy wanted to get one again so she liked it a lot.

Things I Like: Silicone Baking Mats

 I got one for my house last year and loved it. It's a lot like parchment paper but much easier to use. Things bake and rarely ever get burnt on the sides.

Fact of the Day: Graveyard Cemetery

While graveyards and cemeteries seems like the same word for most people, the key difference is that graveyards are attached to churches while a cemetery stands alone.

At my work, they had rented a popcorn machine for the Independence Day weekend. It was neat I guess, but the 2nd day someone burnt the popcorn so it ended up not being very good.
