Queen Elizabeth II once terrorized King Abdullah — by driving him around - Vox - http://www.vox.com/2015...
"And she wasn't just driving, she was DRIVING, leaving Abdullah a quivering wreck: His nervousness only increased as the Queen, an Army driver in wartime, accelerated the Land Rover along the narrow Scottish estate roads, talking all the time. Through his interpreter, the Crown Prince implored the Queen to slow down and concentrate on the road ahead. That's right: Queen Elizabeth basically spent an afternoon using her military-grade driving skills to haze the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Result: Elizabeth 1, Abdullah 0." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Box hits Wall Street with a bang after IPO - Yahoo News
"Cloud storage startup Box soared in its Wall Street debut Friday after a public share offering, pushing its market value to $2.7 billion. Trading under the symbol "BOX," the shares jumped 66 percent to close at $23.23 on the New York Stock Exchange from the offering price of $14 announced Thursday." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Cooking With Kimchi - NYTimes.com
Cooking With Kimchi - NYTimes.com
"It’s commonly used in traditional cuisine as a condiment or side dish with grilled foods (Korean barbecue), served with steamed rice for a humble meal or as an accompaniment to ramyun (Korean noodles), nibbled between slurps or added to the bowl for extra zest. Indeed, kimchi can perk up just about anything, even a plate of bacon and eggs. But to think of it merely as a condiment is a mistake. Kimchi is also a magic ingredient with many possibilities, and home cooks would do well to explore them. Adding it to soups, stews, noodles or rice dishes gives them more dimension. It’s like adding a layer of very flavorful vegetables." - rönin from Bookmarklet
As I mentioned yesterday, one of the most annoying things about this 'trend' is that there are several kimchi that are not cabbage or radish based. - Anika
Yeah, but cabbage and radish are by far the most popular. Even at Korean markets, the cucumber and other veggie kimchis are far in the minority compared to cabbage ones. - Andrew C (✔)

He's lucky he only took himself out. "The North Carolina Highway Patrol says a tractor-trailer driver hauling a load of Ramen noodles nodded off at the wheel and crashed, causing a mess along southbound I-95 near Rocky Mount Wednesday morning." - rönin from Bookmarklet
And carting all the noodles to the landfill seems like such a waste. - rönin
Be glad it's only noodles. Yesterday a truck rolled with just under 40,000 liters of gasoline and diesel. (They were looking into driver fatigue.) - Stephan from iPhone
When I saw this story earlier, they said the noodles had to go because they had contact with the diesel fuel. - Anika

It's a hoot hanging out with owls at this Tokyo cafe - Yahoo News
"In the U.S., hanging out in a cafe with animals is such an exotic concept that people can't get enough of it. A pop-up cat cafe in New York last year had lines down the block. Online reservations for another Manhattan cat cafe are almost fully booked more than two months ahead. But in Japan, cat cafes are just the start. You can hang out in rabbit cafes or have coffee in Tokyo with two goats. And you're not limited to domestic animals. You can also spend an hour at a cafe holding a great horned owl." - rönin from Bookmarklet
When the boys & Ga Yeon of Roommate visited the owl cafe in Tokyo it was hilarity. I felt bad for the poor birds chained to sticks, though. - Anika

Diane says she came home to an empty lot and still hasn't gotten any answers from her husband of nine years. "I don't know what happened. I don't know anything. I know that when I got here he was already down at the police station. We were not fighting, we were not arguing," Andryshak said." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Woman pays $164K per year to live on luxury cruise ship
"Lee Wachtstetter, an 86-year-old Florida widow, took her daughter's advice. She sold her five-bedroom Fort Lauderdale-area home on 10 acres and became a permanent luxury cruise ship resident after her husband died. Mama Lee, as she's known aboard the 11-year-old Crystal Serenity, has been living on the 1,070-passenger vessel longer than most of its 655 crewmembers — nearly seven years." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Buffet is always open. - Eric - ill subliminal
If you've got the money (and that's the big caveat here), why sit in a house somewhere waiting out the rest of your years when you could travel, constantly meet new people and enjoy the luxuries of being cared for buy all the staff. - Johnny from iPhone

If that's all-inclusive then it's not too terrible of a deal. - C to the A to the J..Hey!
@Anika, considering a higher end retirement community would require about 300K to be accepted and then have to pay 3k per month, I think she is using her money wisely. Insurance doesn't cover elder care until you typically need round the clock nursing care, then when your money runs out the Medicaid kicks in. - Janet
