It is great for photos and videos for sure, but I also like the feel of that time of day, and the lack of burning feeling on my face.

Don't these sound like well-behaved topics?! Don't worry, I haven't gone off the goody-two-shoe deep end! Until recently, even though I've liked kale for a long time cooked in dishes etc, and raw baby kale for salads, I hadn't had any especially good experiences with kale chips. Especially the sort I tried to make myself in the oven a while ago which smelled horrible. … [Read more...] about Two Unlikely Subjects… Kale Chips and Lunges?!?!
