gasp! I need some air, and was searching for it at - of all places- on google, semi-geek that I am, when I came across this website. Not quite what I was looking for, but refreshing nevertheless.

Duck Duck Go

Interesting, fresh, fast and efficient take on search. Here for my own convenience - as bookmarks don't come with importance indicators, and most are lost in bookmarks-world.

Love the keyboard shortcuts. Loads faster than google, and does not need adblock plugins running to get rid of junk.

We went to Ikea ...

.. and all we did was eat. Well, we did some browsing first, soaking in some product knowledge on a segment we have skipped so far - Children's Ikea, cribs and bunk beds.

I love smoked salmon - and the ones at Ikea were no worse off than the ones at the local supermarket, plus I didn't have to buy in bulk and store up. Missed some wine and cheese, though. And the crackers were horrible, probably super healthy, tasted like dry straws.

Rain to the rescue

After waiting so eagerly for a rescue-by-rain from the hundred degree plus heat wave, the rain came quick, and was gone by a couple of shots. At least the ACs can get some relief after their marathon run.
