3.) OH MY GAWD. This. THIS PEOPLE!!! Thomas Leveritt ‘How the Sun Sees You’……


He set up a special camera and monitor that was able capture an image in ultraviolet and relay it back to a viewer in real-time. UV lighting allows those within in its scope to perceive, beyond the range of the human eye, not-yet-visible changes, and otherwise unseen parts of the skin.

Leveritt asked passers-by to take a look at the screen and check out the changes in their faces! These poor people then saw faces full of freckles, scars and sun spots  - AKA sun damage where they might not typically apply sunscreen!!!

Now go put some sunscreen on already, would ya??

4.) Grilled Peaches and Pound Cake….Ok…..so this last weekend I made a yummy desert.
EASY PEASY!

Because I am lazy and challenged in the kitchen, I just bbq'd my peaches (with a tiny bit of sugar on them) and bought a poundcake to grill with it…adding a bit of low fat whip cream on top! 

But you should go whole hog and follow this recipe by

Bryan Calvert, chef and co-owner of James in Brooklyn, New York, loves the versatility of his supermoist lemon pound cake: He uses it to make everything from French toast to a stuffing for baked apples. At this time of year, he grills it until crisp and toasty, then tops it with warm, tender grilled peaches and whipped cream.
