The Rockin Matthies: Facebook’s Dynamic Dancing Duo [Video]

I will warn you right now.  If you are reading this to get an explanation, I don't have one.  All I know is this.  Over the weekend, Kevin and I were at dinner with our friend Leisa, who has what is likely the most bizarre collection of Facebook friends in the universe.  And, well, she's added to that collection.  She pulled out her cell phone and started showing videos of The Rockin Matthies.  Have you all seen these people?  They pretty much just dance around their kitchen, sing-along and grunt to some of your favorite country, pop and rock songs.  There's absolutely no way I can do it justice with words.  So, here you go.  I loaded up a video for you so you can watch one!

Beaver Dam Named Dumbest City In Kentucky (Oh I Have Thoughts)

(Image: Google Maps)

What is infotainment? Yes, it's a real word. It usually refers to a TV show. The site Road Snacks claims to be an infotainment site and there's a faint disclaimer that states "This article is an opinion based on facts and is meant as infotainment. Don't freak out." Too late!

The Nima Sensor Will Test Your Food For Gluten, No Really!

When I was growing up, I never heard of anyone with gluten/wheat intolerance. I'm sure it existed, but no one, even the medical community didn't talk about it. Be that as it may, a lot of foods today, particularly snack foods, bear the label of  "gluten-free". However, for the gluten-intolerant, dining out or, say eating at an office potluck, could be an unpleasant experience. I found out about Nima, the senor that detects gluten in food. This is a real product, take a look!
