I Put The “Pop!” In Popsicle

Are you as hot as I am? 😉

In the year of 1905, 11 year old Frank Epperson stirred a package of soda mix into a cup of water with a stick and accidentally left the concoction on his porch overnight.

Eureka!

Nevertheless, it seems like frozen novelties have been around for as long as humanity has been able to harness ice in the warmer months, as the chime of an icy treat is a relish to the ears (and taste buds) of everyone on a hot day. Continue reading “I Put The “Pop!” In Popsicle”

But as human beings, we just have this innate ability to ramp up everything to the next level.

World Cup Eye Candy

All eyes were on Brazil as one of the most heated sporting events in the world was kicked off last month. Full of breathtaking athleticism and tooth and nail competition, the stadium was jammed with spectators.  However, most of us had our eye on something other than the ball. Women and men were glued to their screens during world cup matches, but their eyes were not focused just on the scoreboard.


Feel how the planet becomes one. Beats like a drum to the same rhythm. Hear the whistle, kick the ball. The entire world soars like an eagle! â™Ș
