Saturday Snippets: 23.July.2016

Well, this week was Heater Week for the sprinter conversion! Welding a mount for the expansion tank to go under the hood, plumbing in one of the heat exchangers, attaching to the in-floor heating, and getting the mount ready for the diesel heater. If you don’t understand a word of what I’m saying, no fear, we’ve got pictures to the rescue! This was Jonty’s view for most of the week. It’s a good thing we have a 4×4 – definitely makes it easier to get under the van!

Here’s what caught our eye online during the week of 23.July.2016.

On Climbing:

On Eating:

  • I love salads. And when they look like this? How can you not want this in front of you immediately!
  • And I love bowl foods. I’m pretty sure I could live off this salmon souvlaki bowl for quite some time, and never get tired of it.
  • These flatbreads would fit perfectly into our weekend hummus spread.

On Cycling:

On Repeating:

  • I just finished reading When Breath Becomes Air. Have you simultaneously wanted to read a book because you knew it would affect you, and not wanted to read a book because you knew it would affect you? This was that book. After reading the first sentence, I knew I would most likely be crying by the end of it. I was not wrong. The next morning, Jonty asked if it was a book about a puppy dog, because it is also likely I will cry about a book involving a dog, but it wasn’t. This memoir was beautifully written and heart-breakingly sad. I loved it. You should read it.
  • Would you ever take a cruise-ship adventure on a cargo ship?
  • Have you seen more people wandering around town, their eyes glued to their phone screen? Someone should start tracking this, and see how many people are injured as a direct result of playing Pokemon-Go. Perhaps Darwinism will prevail?

Happy Weekend!
