Per my new Consumer Reports, when the term kosher is used with pickles, it doesn’t mean it was prepared under a rabbi’s supervision, but that garlic was added to the brine. And dill sometimes refers to size or that dill weed was added to the brine.

Since I’m married to the best looking one-eyed-woman I know, I’m always on the lookout for one-eyed stories. Here’s one in which a war veteran has the Purple Heart on his prosthetic eye, and he’s another one where a man actually gets a bionic eye implant.
I was writing the other day looking for a way to backup all my photos online and compared different plans. One of my readers was nice enough to recommend SmugMug, where you can store unlimited photos for only $40 a year and they also offer other bells and whistles such as easy linking and great displays. He was also nice enough to provide a promotion code for $5 off the first year ( 7hlbThvNOsIu2). Yeah, he may get a small incentive for providing the code, but hey, it’s $5. Here’s an in-depth review of SmugMug if you are interested.
There was a lot of buzz on the Internet about the new Samsung phone. It has a sensor that can tell if you are looking at the screen, so when you aren’t it will dim or go off and come back on when you look at it.

One major advantage that I think Apple has over it’s phone competitors is that it only produces one phone at a time, so it’s able to pour all it’s time and resources into developing a new one, as opposed to other phone manufacturers who make numerous phones and have to spread their time and resources.
