I found a webpage title The Historical Development of the Vacuum Coffee Pot. The site has detail explanation about coffee especially the vacuum coffee pot. There are also some pictures or drawings of the early design of vacuum coffee pot. Examples of vacuum coffee pot are Palmer’s 1786 patented coffee urn with spirit lamp, hot water jacket, and dual spigots, Petsch and Buynitzky’s 1868 coffee making apparatus, 1934 Silex patent drawing for an electric stove for vacuum coffee brewer and many more. There are lots of readings if you’re really interested in the topic of vacuum coffee pot. As for me, the drawings of the vacuum coffee pot are good enough for me. I’ll leave the reading part for you.

I want to try Syphon coffee. Judging from the way Syphon coffee brew, I think it’s going to be an expensive cup of coffee. This video clips looks more like a science lab than a coffee counter. I suppose the art of making a fine cup of coffee is science. Having thoughts of getting a set of that Syphon coffee science lab? Mmm… I think I’ll skip the brewing part and buy myself the drinking part.

Word Spy keeps in touch with all the new words and posts it on their website. Once in a while you may check out Word Spy to learn all those new words. You may even subscribe to their RSS feed or just follow their twitter. As for the website, I just feel like reading an encyclopedia or a dictionary. Honestly, I couldn’t look at it for more than 5 minutes. I suppose Word Spy should consider include images to make the website looks interesting and easy to understand. Still I think the citations are the best part of the website. There is just one thing that I’m concern about. Will there be any conflict between Word Spy and Wikipedia as it seems both website might be showing the same thing. As far as blogger’s concern, which ever that makes the website interesting deserve checking again and again.

I did try to walk on it by wearing my mom’s high heels. I have to say, it’s not as comfortable as it seen and it’s difficult to walk. Not to mention some can even run a long distance wearing high heels. I suppose either these women are very talented in wearing high heels or they just happen to have a very good pair of high heels. Check out these girls that participate in the Stiletto Run, or the so call high heel run.
High heel is part of a very important fashion for woman but the price of wearing it is expensive. It’s not just the money that you need to pay for a good pair of high heel, but also the price of your health. Take a look at the picture above. Wearing high heels over time can cause lots of problems to the legs. It can leads to pain and numbness in the toes, osteoarthritis, heel pain, bony growth, toes bent, Haglund’s deformity, join pain in the ball of the foot and sprained or broken ankle. So does it worth wearing high heels to look beautiful and sexy? You decide.
P/S: I think you don’t have to put on high heels all the time. You just need to find time and places where you can take it off and gives the legs some rest. I suppose you can take it off when you’re sitting in the office. Just puts them back on when you walk. A smart way to wear high heels can preserve your beauty.
