NEW FOOD ITEM: Kellogg's Mashups - Frosted Flakes and Fruit Loops

 

It was like a childhood dream come true.

I found this Limited Edition of Kellogg's Mashups which is a combination of Frosted Flakes and Fruit Loops for $2.98 a box.

I was going to pick up a box until I spotted the sugar content and put it back on the shelf, but it still sounds delicious!

INTERESTING TRADITION: ALTAI THROAT SINGING


Screenshot from video below

In the video below the two young lads recorded the video live in the Altai Mountains in Russia and it is a form of singing called Altai Throat Singing.

From an article on To Discover Russia:

"Passing on legends and traditions from generation to generation the people of Altai, like many other nations, accomplishedthrough singing. Altai traditions are passed on as poems in the form of epics.

The epic (“kai”) is performed not just as a story, but as a legend, accompanied by music on Altai folk instruments. Epics are sung with a special, throat singing. Sometimes a kai can be sung for hours or even days –kais reflect cautionary tales oftheir heroes.

With the use of throat singing of epics the people of Altai preserved their cultural traditions and passed them on to next generations.

Usually kais were performed after dark, which added to the performance and the storyteller some magical flare."

ANIMALS: COCATOOS TAKE OVER AN AUSSIE TOWN LIKE A HITCHCOCKIAN NIGHTMARE

 

Screenshots from video below

The above pics are from the short clip below of thousands of cockatoos descending on a suburb in Nowra, New South Wales yesterday like in Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Birds".

The New York Post reported:

"Parrots taking over a town might not sound particularly terrifying.

However, the angry birds — which are native to the region — are incredibly destructive with past invasions resulting in wrecked storefronts and roads littered with bird droppings, local media reported.

Unfortunately, not much can be done to mitigate the mayhem as the birds are a protected species"
