FOUL….way too salty for my taste

Taken verbatim from the article…this is so gross.

THE WORST DRIVE-THRU MEAL IN AMERICA
Carl’s Jr. Double Six Dollar Burger
with Medium Natural cut Fries and 32 oz Coke
2,618 Calories
144 g fat (51.5 g saturated fat)
2892 mg sodium

Of all the gut-growing, heart-stopping, life-threatening burgers in the fast food world, there is none whose damage to your general well-being is as catastrophic as this. Consider these heart-stopping comparisons: This meal has the caloric equivalent of 13 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts; the saturated fat equivalent of 52 strips of bacon; and the salt equivalent of seven and a half large orders of McDonald’s French fries!

Scary!

Will make me think twice about driving the 1 South anytime soon. How is it I didn’t know that I drove over this? Am I that oblivious?

Yahoo! Travel has dubbed the 1 south one of the scariest drives. Read the article to find out what else made the cut.

Highway One/Big Sur

California

Alfred Hitchcock could not have conjured a scarier highway—122 miles of vertigo between Monterey and Morro Bay. Two lanes for nearly its entire length, the road meanders along cliff tops poised high above the Pacific, including 33 bridges and countless drop offs into liquid oblivion. Anyone faintly squeamish should not attempt to drive this route.

the new dining table

I ordered a dining table on Ebay for our dining nook.  The house is now short one piece of furniture, mabye two..but those are just extras…not necessities…like a dining room table.  Ikea does it right.  Im not sure that this place does.  It was also build your own furniture…and while it was a success in the end, im not sure the process was laid out in the best possible way.  Let me show you why.  Read the directions for the chairs..

Engrish at its finest.

And..now the process.

And the final result…with the first meal to christen it.
