Hubble Gotchu!

I don’t know why I find this so amusing, but when I saw astrophysicist Sandra M. Faber receive an Honorary Degree at the University of Pennsylvania’s Commencement for her critical work in refocusing the Hubble Space Telescope I knew for sure…

Milk Machine Monday

I never thought I would have tried, let alone enjoyed, vending machine grade milk. As it turns out, I’m now hooked on Byrne Dairy‘s self-proclaimed “world famous” low fat chocolate milk. Wawa chocolate milk has always been the gold standard to which all other milks are measured, and this stuff gets right in its face! I can’t believe it came from a machine that I have openly derided.

My initial concerns centered around temperature. I like my milk cold, and given the wild temperature fluctuations among the bank of vending machines outside my workplace, I assumed this stuff would be nowhere near cold enough for my taste. For some perspective, I’ve had the misfortune of a body temperature Snickers bar from the machine next door. This milk did not disappoint.

Pictured here is the full strength chocolate milk, which I tried today. I much prefer the low fat version. This machine and its contents have been a revelation. I can assure you though, I won’t be trying whatever “Icy Tea” is.
