Jul 10th 2006 9:23AM My pleasure! This was too weird of a story to let it get away. I only wish that they kid had underwater video equipment, but I guess that that is asking a lot of someone who made a sub out of a pig trough.
Jun 29th 2006 5:08PM Thanks, Laura and Chrissy! Man - I wish they sold them here. They sound great....
Jun 29th 2006 9:09AM I agree! And I believe that it is a mass-production technique that is patented, as well as some sort of mold that shapes the donut.
Jun 27th 2006 10:16PM Thanks for the links to the new images, Keith. They look great in the water. I can picture a pool filled with them, like a giant bowl of pasta. Very cool.
Jun 27th 2006 12:30PM That's a good question, Hawk. The ingredients on the Sonoma Syrup Co grenadine list juice, sugar and vanilla, so I think it could work!
Jun 27th 2006 8:09AM Barbara - I'm not saying that commercial pies are "better" than homemade pies. I am sure that both your pies and mine are better than ones that we could purchase from many stores, restaurants or bakeries.
The point that I am trying to make is that the statement that I don't think it is true or fair to say that a "mass-produced" pie can never be good and never be worth eating. Just because it didn't come from a home kitchen doesn't mean that it's going to be bad and it certainly doesn't mean people are not going to enjoy it.
In my estimation, if the pie is being enjoyed by someone, it is still an acceptable pie, even if it's not the greatest.
Jun 27th 2006 7:52AM One thing that I am certain that the locals would rather do is keep their jobs and businesses - which they do by helping the local economy and supporting those businesses, not by eliminating all the functions that would be rolled into one supermarket.
Jun 23rd 2006 5:23PM One meaning is a noun, as in "muddler," while the other is the verb, as in "to muddle".
Jun 22nd 2006 7:54AM Silicone bristles are very, very soft. In fact, "bristle" is probably the wrong word for them because they are not stiff at all, but no better word springs to mind.
I wouldn't worry about stiffness being a factor with these, unlike most standard brushes.
Jun 19th 2006 7:44PM I definitely had these when I was a kid, so I know they're not new, but I agree that they're quite useful for kids. Somehow, I seem to eat my popsicles much quicker nowadays...
