Chirps on Amazon
Some of you may remember I kicked a project to make chips from cricket flour. They were funded and I got my chips and...well...they taste like any other "gourmet" style chip. I sampled them around work to a dozen people or so and the overwhelming opinion was positive. 

Those of you that know me know that I'm not going to stop eating meat anytime soon, but I also cannot deny that the production of meat products is resource intensive and tough on the environment and animals. With that in mind I will continue to sample and support alternatives when I can. Such as these yummy high protein chips.

Very cool! My cousins and I have always talked about how cool it would be if someone opened a coffee/tea shop catered to "board and card gamers". Glad to see someone is actually going to try it.

+Eric Milliken​ I was in high school myself. I remember having this on a mixed tape I recorded from the radio; the DJ came on immediately afterwards, commenting "Sounds like a bunch of frustrated ducks" about quacking noises at the end of the song. :)

A Place to Bury Strangers
I ran across a thread on Reddit recommending +Spotify playlists and the one I keep going back to is made by +Evan Witten and called 2015. It's a collection of songs he has found this year and is all over the place but I like it as I keep finding new stuff. This group popped up today and I liked it enough to jump over to their latest album
Transfixiation

2015 Playlist (Spotify) - https://open.spotify.com/user/121005385/playlist/3LYgXlhZ3KbUtkNMjKHf42

Evan, apologies if this isn't you but you have music fiend in your profile description so I made the leap. :)

I asked my daily chat group to make a list of things to help me here and this is what they came up with. I think it's pretty good:
