It all started with my craving for a big sweet watermelon. I love watermelon. There is nothing better to crunch a summer thirst than a few big slices of cold and sweet seedless watermelon. I have been shopping at different places for good watermelons. Usually the best deal are ones that price by the whole instead of by weight. Trader Joe's usually have them for $3.99. I have seen them also at Costco for $6.99. At first glance you would think it is no-brainer to get the one from Trader Joe's. I then start paying attention at the difference in size. it turns out the ones at Costco is about twice as big, and is more consistently sweet. This year I have been having pretty good luck with the ones at Costco. The key is not to buy them too early in the season. life is no joy being stuck with a twenty-pounder that is too dense and bland.

This is the eleventh installment of the series of post on a road trip during the spring of 2014. I woke up with a cold sweat last night. I realize if I don't grab my blogging by the hone (think unicorn) my series of the recent road trip will never finish.

I just can across this interesting Japanese gadget. It is very common for most Asian to pick clean the ears but in the West, most people would think twice and frown on the idea of inserting a strange contraption into the ear canal. Just plug into an USB port of your PC...

Whenever I go to Home Depot in my neighborhood I always drop by the Korean grocery store across the street to pick up a few things and this trip is no exception.
