    Canned Canadian air (yes, air) for sale in China & - like in Spaceballs !

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/peop...ains-high.html

    Their first shipment to China was a little over 500 bottles of air, their next shipment in two weeks will be around 700.


    Not a wow-wee type of thing but a story of interest.

    Well the French convinced us to pay high prices for a common item in the US = water, bottled.

    "Virtual fire" would allow me to feel the warmth/heat virtually - not just see & hear it - but w/o any risk of injury or damage.

    That would be Perrier in 1977, followed by Evian in 1978.

    Fool US once and shame on them. Fool US twice and shame on US. Evian is N A I V E backwards. Directly from the French https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/naive

    Florida Liquid Sunshine

    Our Florida vacation rental last year included a Rival Juice-O-Matic. We went through more than a bushel per week of fresh oranges that I squooze for morning breakfast and afternoon adult beverages. Truly it was liquid sunshine. My fingernails became yellowed from all the carotinoids.

    Reminds me of Anita Bryant and her career that included among other things "Breakfast without orange juice is like a day without sunshine!" Who remembers her other controversial advocacies?
