Love this new Pizza boxes

Vinnie’s Pizzeria has made being eco-friendly delicious. The Brooklyn, New York pizza shop has unleashed a pizza pie that comes inside a box actually made of pizza in an attempt to cut down on the amount of cardboard boxes wasted. “Sometimes I get a little annoyed by customers that ask for a box, and then sit down [in the shop] and eat the piece of pizza and throw the box into my trash can,” co-owner Sean Berthiaume explains. “It got me thinking, I wish they could eat the box.” This isn’t the first time the pizza maker has gotten creative. Last year, he created a pie that had mini slices of pizza on top. No word on whether Vinnie’s still offers that particular creation, but the pie that comes in an edible box will run you $40.

Before you get married, you need to have this conversation

When you’ve met the person of your dreams and you’re ready to tie the knot and live happily ever after, you’ve probably covered the big things. Like, you’ve most likely talked about whether or not you want kids, where you want to live and how you’ll afford that life. But relationship expert April Masini says these are probably some important conversations you haven’t had with your fiancé yet, because you didn’t know how important they were.

  • What place your exes have in your lives – Just because you’re getting married doesn’t mean your close friendship with your ex isn’t a big deal to your fiancé. You might have been friends for years, but your life partner could still feel threatened. So don’t assume anything and talk about your exes if they’re in your lives.
  • How you’ll divide household labor – A marriage is only part romance, and there’s lots of hard work, too – some of it is housework. So figure out how things work best for your life together. Masini says you only have so much time, energy, space, and money to deal with, and the way you use it is crucial to your happiness. You’re probably not going to split everything fairly right down the middle – just do what feels like a good balance to you both.
  • How your in-laws are included in your marriage – You might think that time with family will sort itself out, but you’d be wrong. “In-laws can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back — and the camel in this case, is the marriage,” says Masini. “That’s why it’s important to strategize about how to deal with in-laws before the marriage.” Figure out how to alternate holidays with each of your family’s or how to trade off so you’re both happy and your folks are as well.
  • What’s on your bucket list – If your life-long dream is to sell all your stuff to become a cross-country trucker, you should probably tell your fiancé about this goal early on. Don’t wait until you’re hitched to share surprises with your sweetie. They want to support your dreams, but you can’t blindside them.

What City is the Best Griller?

While it’s not quite summer yet, lots of us are already dreaming about the warm weather and the steaks on the grill, and it seems there are some cities where that barbecue is dying to be used more than others.

According to some new research that uncovered America’s Top 10 Grilling Hot Spots, the biggest grillers in the country are in Atlanta, which makes sense considering it’s almost always hot in the city. Although not all top grilling spots are generally warm states. In fact, Washington, DC, Minniapolis and Boston all made the Top Ten.

Top Ten Grilling Spots in America

  1. Atlanta, GA
  2. Washington, D.C.
  3. Miami, FL
  4. Kansas City, MO
  5. Minneapolis, MN
  6. Boston, MA
  7. Cincinnati, OH
  8. San Francisco, CA
  9. Pittsburgh, PA
  10. Tampa, FL

And it seems grilling isn’t just for the men of the house anymore. The study found that nearly half of all women say they’re the primary grillers in the household, and of the women who aren’t the main grillers, the majority say they would gladly man the grill more often.

Who beheaded Snowbrick?

Who could have done this? What kind of people that are on the air 3:00 to 6:00 PM everyday could have done this?

Who did this?!?!!?

You need a good nights sleep!

It turns out that a good night’s sleep really can be what you need to fight off those pesky colds and infections. Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that those who sleep five or fewer hours a night had a nearly 30-percent higher risk of getting a common cold than those who sleep more.
