Pipe Cleaners are a great invention! - 05/04/14

So you may be wondering where this may be coming from...I know it seems a bit out of left field.  I drink a ton of water from my water bottle and the straw part just started filling up with mold.  I was telling one of my friends about it at the gym because I was wondering where I could get a new straw for the bottle.  I've been trying to clean it but have had no luck.  He said why don't you get a pipe cleaner...you know those long thin metal strands with fuzz all around them.  I thought what a great Idea.  Went home and boom it worked! 

Anyways...This is a ROCK STAR forecast.  Sunshine and warmth for pretty much the entire work week. Love it!

YOUTUBE ANNIVERSARY

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Happy birthday YouTube. The video sharing site is turning 10 years old this month. A Nike soccer shoe ad called "Touch of Gold" became the first video on the site to be watched 1 million times. That was in 2005. The dance video "Gangnam Style" was the first YouTube video to hit 1 billion views in 2012. It's still the most-viewed clip. In case you're wondering, YouTube says it gets about 300 hours of video uploads each minute. That means it would take about 49 years to watch all the videos posted on YouTube on a typical day.

FAIR-VEGAN STAND

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Vegans won't be left out of the deep fried fun at the New York State Fair. The fair has chosen a vendor for its first ever all-vegan and vegetarian stand. Syracuse's Strong Hearts Cafe was picked. Strong Hearts says it will serve vegan fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner and create a new milkshake-like drink especially for the fair. The eatery also promises deep-fried vegan chicken wings.

KEY WEST-RAINBOW CROSSWALKS

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) -- You've seen crosswalks painted white and probably yellow, too. But how about a rainbow crosswalk? Key West, Florida's famed Duval Street will get rainbow-colored crosswalks. The crosswalks will be painted this week at the intersection of Duval and Petronia streets, just a couple blocks away from author Ernest Hemingway's home. The project will officially be unveiled June 10 for the start of the five-day Key West Pride festival. The Miami Herald reports donations helped cover the $4,000 cost for the project.

JAILHOUSE LAW SCHOOL

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Some future lawyers could be going to jail. But it's not what you might think. Northern Kentucky University is considering a former jail for its law school. The Kentucky Enquirer reports the university is looking at converting an old county admin building for academic use. The facility once housed a jail and offices. If the proposal is adopted, more than 400 law students could be doing "time" -- in class -- at the old lockup.
