got jelly? or honey, even?

I found a picture of the technological miracle. Do we need this? I doubt it.




And for all you wildlife fans out there thinking of visiting Canada, a link to a pdf. brochure entitled There's a Bear in My Backyard!

I TOTALLY need one of those! It's like something from Judy Jetson's space kitchen!

I don't think I could have one of those radio toasters.
I really liked the Bear brochure. I think I've learnt some practicle advice incase I ever meet a bear.

Hi Christina:

My law school roommate's girlfriend was from Tokyo, and had amassed a mountain of frequent flyer points by the time that we graduated. Five of us paid her $200 each and she, in turn, cashed in the points to buy us tickets to Anchorage.

During the month leading-up to the trip, I prepared by reading story after story of horrifying accounts grizzly bear attacks.

When we finally reached Denali Park, I was in a state of extreme paranoia...and decked from head to toe in "bear bells."

The others in my group (i.e., those who were too lazy or prudent to ruin their trips by memorizing the graphic details of 20th century bear maulings) found this very amusing while hiking in the bush. Inevitably, someone would yell "BEAR!!!" every 100 meters or so.

This has nothing to do with toasters, but might explain my current state of male-pattern baldness.

BTW...do you have any brochures entitled "There's a Beer in My Backyard!"?

Sal

I MUST HAVE one of those toasters. Wanted a Radio in the kitchen for a long time.. but it uses up to much space. 2 in 1, the perfect gadget :-)

Does it infuse the toast with music? Now if you could swallow a disposable radio that would last all day and then rub your ear to turn up the volume and twist your nose to switch stations...

Disposable toast radio.

Hannah,Lillian - only EUR 29,99 (plus around EUR 75 in postage, of course) and it's yours!

Mr. Haddock - you just never know when information like that could come in handy. I've heard there have actually been a few bear sightings in Germany lately.

Sal - great story! Yes, those terrified tourists with bells on their toes are just everywhere. The possible connection to male-pattern baldness deserves more research, I think. You may be on to something there. I don't know how much demand there'd be for a beer brochure since most card-carrying Canadians just know instinctively how to tackle a nice cold brewski should it suddenly show up on the picnic table out back. :-)

Philip - you're a genius! Toast with the music built right in. What a concept.
