Drink Coke for Healthier Skin?


For some people, me for example, having nice skin can prove difficult. I can't count the number of times I've been to the doctor for skin related problems. Water and vitamin E help, but they don't solve the problem. It would be nice if something came along that would make taking care of my skin much easier. A few days ago a friend sent me a link to an article about a drink that could help us all have nicer skin.

It turns out that the Coca Cola Company and L'Oreal are pairing up to develop their very own health beverage for health conscious women. It is a health and beauty tea-based ready-to-drink drink that will help us have nicer skin. read more »

Water-Safe Baby Carrier


With summer fast-approaching, visions of the dreaded heat and humidity press tightly on my mind, like a hot, wet cloth. Oppressive and uncomfortable, the Midwest summers can nearly kill you or at least obliterate any fun outdoors - especially for my family. We all dislike the heat. Staying at home with the kids, cooped up in the deliciousness of air-conditioning can only last too long. Boredom sets in. Quick as a wink, I'm out the door, having packed everyone up for an afternoon at the pool. I love the water; its blue wetness dazzling in the glaring sun. Watching the children swimming their hearts and summer away is amazing. I love to hear their ecstatic squeals of laughter echoing off the water.

Brilliant's Invention Idea of the Week - Gas-o-Haul


Gas-o-HaulI think it's important for a car to have a container handy to hold extra gasoline or water in case of emergencies. But, the storage containers traditionally available to hold gasoline are usually huge and bulky and practically take up half the space in the trunk, leaving little room for anything else. So, although having a container around is something people should do, very few people actually do because it's impracticable.

Products That Help Jog Your Memory


Brain & Memory Fitness TrainerYou know the story about Chinese food, right? "The problem with Chinese food is that no matter how much you eat, in 20 minutes you're hungry again."

Have you heard this variant of the anecdote?

"I went to see the Chinese movie, Curse of the Golden Flower, but 20 minutes after I left the theatre, I forgot what it was about."

Or this one?

"We saw the film "The Banquet," and not only were we hungry 20 minutes later, but we had to see the movie again!

I used to laugh at these "jokes." Now... well, I'm a little sensitive about my memory. I can't seem to recall the names of movies, the stars, even the plots of movies I've seen recently...and these movies were not even Chinese!
