    Getting back to a sense of normalcy after Hurricane Sandy. We fared better than most - no heat or power for a week but no damage to the house. My biggest concern was falling trees (we lost one during...

    If memory serves, there's an homage at the end of the PIXAR movie The Incredibles. There might be a screen grab of it floating around somewhere.

    I think you may need to temper your expectations a bit - while it certainly smells like celery, it tastes more like ginger ale. I'm not a mixed drink person, but I would imagine you could mix it with...

    Very cool. I still haven't tried Red Cream and based on the flavor descriptions here, I'm not sure I'd like it. Didn't they have a couple of different brands of Red Cream there?
