Here in Austin Lammes has them as a seasonal item and they are fabulous!

Single red grapes fully dipped. The ones they use are smallish and sweet. So good! Mmmmm...

How is this new? We've had desks that adjust to standing where I work for the 7 years I've been here, and they weren't new when I started.

When we moved to a new building we got L-shaped desks w/upper cabinets that also move, so if you want to stand up, your whole cubicle basicaly goes with you, walls and all. Much cooler than it sounds (:

I will say, they are awesome and I would have one at home if I could find one a little more decor/space friendly.

Anyone else remember the cue cat? We got two sent to from Wired & one from the Dallas Morning News so we could scan barcodes in articles that would take us to web content. I thought it was cool, but I was 12... (:

And even then, I only remember using it 2 or 3 times.

That having been said, I could see this actually being useful now as a smartphone app.

Yes! I LOVE my glasslock containers!!!
The set from costco has 9 different containers w/ lids and is less than $30. You can also get individual containers at Bed Bath & Beyond, but they're $5 - $12 apiece. Still worth it, especially for the larger containers.

Great article! I've always wondered about white pepper.

However, Brazilian Pepper is INVASIVE in Florida, not ornamental. There are several counties (that I know of...)w/eradication ordinances, meaning owners of improved and unimproved properties must remove it. And it is a PAIN to get rid of... this stuff is a menace.

Do people have dogs who wouldn't chew that sheepskin right up? I don't. This may just be a personal failing, though.

That said, this is too cute! I can totally see a DIY version of this in my future.

I agree w/all above, Mag Mud is yummy! I haven't been in a while, and I can't find it on their online menu, but my favorite was actually the Edward's queso. I seem to remember queso w/ loads of fresh pico ,avocado & other vegetables (squash, etc..)
Loved that stuff.

Austin has the queso/avocado thing down to a science. Besides the Kerby Queso, Kerby also has a dish called Eggs Francisco (english muffin, bacon, scrambled egg, slice of tomato & avocado slices all topped w/excellent queso in lieu of hollandaise) Would this kill you if you ate it on a day-to-day basis? Yes. It would probably be worth it, though.

Oh yeah, both Kerby and Magnolia are open 24/7 ( : I love Austin!

First thing? Curtains. I've been planning this project for a while and I just found the perfect fabric, but the sewing machine my grandma gave me finally kicked the bucket.

It was a Singer and I loved it, but it was very, very old and its time had come. This machine looks like a dream come true!
