Can you imagine what it would be like to travel around and live out of a van?  Though that idea may horrify some, to the rest of us that level of freedom sounds like a dream come true.

Back in Spring of 2010 this couple bought a sad looking Volkswagen T4 van and with a lot of love, creativity and a very small budget were able to borrow some tools and create their dream home.  Over the next 5 years, they travel across Europe in their Rolling Home covering more than 80,000 miles.

Calum Creasey and Lauren Smith are the creative couple who roamed the United Kingdom over the past 5 years.  In their free time, they have put together a book of their journeys called “The Rolling Home”.  The project is well on its way to being fully funded in their Kickstarter campaign where they promise that the journey isn’t over.

The funds they are getting from the project is to help them fix up the van and move into it full time.  Lauren’s goal is to show people through the book and their social media that living the lifestyle of your choice is both reasonably attainable and a lot of fun.

All you need to do is to get out of your comfort zone and follow your heart on to the next adventure!

Lauren and Calum are from Newport Pagnell which is a town in Buckinghamshire.  They have always loved exploring and spending time in the outdoors.  Calum grew up with many different sizes and shapes of campervans.

The couple says that the hardest thing they run into when it comes to living in a van is when they come across towns that aren’t very “van friendly”.  Imagine it is late at night, you are tired and just looking for a place to park in the dark to sleep for the night.

There are times where it isn’t all fun and games, but overall the couple loves their life and wants to continue it many more years.

In a heartwarming start to the New Year, a pair of California twins were born only 15 minutes apart — in separate years, with one born minutes before midnight on New Year’s Eve in 2021 and the other born at precisely midnight on New Year’s Day in 2022.

Their Mother, Fatima Madrigal, gave birth to her son Alfredo Antonio Trujillo at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday night, according to the Natividad Medical Center, which announced the birth on Sunday.

Alfredo’s sister, Aylin Yolanda Trujillo, was born precisely at midnight in a new year with a different birthdate, just 15 minutes after Alfredo’s brother.

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, a family physician at the hospital, described the deliveries as being “uniquely timed” and “one of the most memorable deliveries of my career.”

“It was an absolute pleasure to help these little ones arrive here safely in 2021 and 2022,” Arias added in the release. “What an amazing way to start the New Year!”

After spending time in the hospital with their mother and father, Robert Trujillo, the two newborns will travel home to meet their three older siblings – two girls and a boy.

Game Changer: The FDA Approved Eye Drops That Replace Reading Glasses

The Food and Drug Administration authorized eye drops that may possibly replace reading glasses for millions of people in October, and they entered the market this week.

“It’s definitely a life changer,” trial participant Toni Wright told CBS“I would not need my readers as much, especially on the computer, where I would always need to have them on.”

The drops, known as pilocarpine, and sold by pharma outlet Allergan under the name “Vuity,” might help the 128 million people in the United States who are nearsighted. One drop in each eye, according to the business, may enhance closeup eyesight for six to ten hours, according to CBS News.

The drops function by utilizing the eye’s natural capacity to shrink its pupil.

“Reducing the pupil size expands the depth of field or the depth of focus, and that allows you to focus at different ranges naturally,” George Waring, lead investigator of a clinical trial, told CBS.

At $80 for a 30-day supply, the drops aren’t cheap, but they’re also not excessively pricey, considering the benefit..

However, it is not a cure-all, and headaches and burning eyes are two of the most common adverse effects reported. The manufacturer also advises against using the drops at night while driving or when operating machinery.

Middle-aged adults are the ones who benefit the most from the drops. According to CBS, those over the age of 65 will be less affected by them.

Millions of people find wearing reading glasses inconvenient, therefore getting rid of them is surely appealing.

Along with revolutionary technologies like Lasik, humans are continually moving towards a future where problems with eyesight are a thing of the past. Nice.

December 8th is National Brownie Day, and yesterday the king of all brownies was revealed. Breaking the Guinness Book of World Records, the recently revealed brownie is taking the internet by storm. If you like brownies, incredible feats of baking, and maybe a bit of THC, then the world’s largest pot brownie is just for you!

Massachusetts-based cannabis company MariMed, Inc. is getting ready to launch its edibles bakery brand, Bubby’s Baked. What better way to introduce the world to your edible company, than by baking the world’s largest THC-infused brownie? 

MariMed is a “premier seed-to-consumer vertically integrated multi-state operator. The company’s driving mission continues: to improve the lives of people everyday through our products, actions, and values.” and advises people who plan to produce cannabis on design, development, operations, and financing, according to the company’s website. 

Just before National Brownie Day, on Tuesday, the company baked a record-breaking treat. Using the same ratios from one of their normal-sized edible brownies, the team amped things up and made a mega-brownie.

Weighing in at a whopping 850 pounds, the massive brownie contains a mindblowing amount of THC too. How much THC, you ask? Well, 20,000 milligrams to be exact.

The massive chocolatey treat measures 3 feet wide and 3 feet, 15 inches tall. The previous record in the Guinness World Records was a mere 243 pounds. Looks like this edible is going to hold the title for quite a while.

Bubby’s Baked fills a big hole in the edibles market that cannabis consumers crave – high-quality, delicious baked goods that stay moist and chewy,” said MariMed Chief Product Officer and SVP/Sales Ryan Crandall. “For many of us, homemade brownies were our first taste of cannabis-infused edibles.”

MariMed, headquartered in Norwood, Massachusetts, saw its craft confectioners use the same ingredients and a similar procedure to making its smaller pot brownies, using all the typical ingredients – flour, butter, eggs, sugar – for the giant one, including the 20,000 milligrams of THC.”

In total, to create the incredible edible, the bakers used: 1,344 eggs, 250 pounds of sugar, 212 pounds of butter, 5.3 pounds of vanilla extract, 81 pounds of flour, two pounds of baking powder, three pounds of salt, and 122 pounds of cocoa powder. Quite the shopping list!

“Bubby’s recreates and elevates that nostalgic experience, infusing full-spectrum, craft-quality cannabis into timeless recipes, for a reliable high reminiscent of simpler times. Strategically, Bubby’s is part of our effort at MariMed to build a house of brands that meets different consumer needs across a diverse range of occasions,” the news release continued. 

If you’re wondering where you can find Bubby Baked’s brownies, their confectionary line is available throughout Massachusetts. This includes the MariMed Panacea dispensary in Middleborough. They are expected to hit dispensary shelves in Delaware and Maryland next year, so keep your eyes open for that exciting development!
