I am a huge fan of subscription boxes, but can't always afford to pay a large price for a bunch of samples. At times it's not worth it, and I find myself disappointed with the size of the boxes. The first thing I noticed when I received my daily goodie box was how it was heavy, full of stuff and not tiny by any means. We're talking jam packed here! In this post, I will be including prices of the full sized products. Okay, so before I jump into all the stuff in my box, here is how you can get one too!



I really enjoyed trying new things in my Daily Goodie Box. I love how these products are environmentally friendly, organic and use fresh organic ingredients. Each box will be filled with a bunch of different products to try, so you will always be filled with excitement! My favorite goodie in this box is the Gary Poppins popcorn. It was light and delicious with the perfect amount of salt. Again, this box is completely free to everyone in exchange for your review. Sign up here today and receive your very own Daily Goodie Box!

The relationships between people, animals, environment, and religion are exemplified during the time of year. Different rites and traditions center around giving thanks and acknowledging the relationships people have in life. But the festival also has far-reaching economic implications. Ahead of celebrations, people rush to buy gold and other goods, which in turn fuel many industries tied to the holiday.

China and India are the two leading producers of firecrackers in the world. In 2016, India had the second-largest country market in the world, followed by Europe and Japan. Making the popular consumer item involves dealing with chemicals like phosphorus, sulfur, and potassium. The factories and local shops produce tons of hazardous waste, and the people who work there are at risk for pulmonary diseases. But the tradition of lighting firecrackers to further commemorate the triumph of good over evil during Diwali is longstanding. As a result, the holiday continues to fuel the firecracker industry.

Similar to the use of handheld firecrackers, fireworks represent the same sentiment of welcoming the good. Firework displays dot the South East Asian skies this time of year, and one common location is to set them off at temples and places of worship, such as the Golden Temple Amritsar (pictured above).

Another notable tradition accompanying Diwali is the creation of rangolis. Rangoli is used for many other celebrations as well; it is a decorative and auspicious practice for which people make decorative designs with colored sand, flower petals, and grains like rice. Rangolis can often be seen in temples and at the foot of entryways and doors to bring good luck into a household.

The Ganga, also known as the River Ganges, is mentioned in many religious texts as sites of miraculous events or as holding healing powers. So, the location and water itself are considered sacred by Hindus. Ceremonial bathing in this river is thought to wash away the bad and bring in the good. In recent times, increasing concerns are growing around the pollution and quality of the water because of religious use. People bathe in the river, set candles afloat, and also spread cremated remains in the river. The combination of all those tributes over time has created environmental problems.

Dances are also historically tied to this celebration as another way to honor the goddess Lakshmi and bring good luck for the coming year. The dances themselves vary regionally but all tell a story through physical movements and expressions.

Apart from the general controversy around parabens (we wrote about it more here), there is a 2006 in-vitro (made in the lab not on real people) research about methylparaben (MP) showing that when exposed to sunlight, MP treated skin cells suffered more harm than non-MP treated skin cells. The study was not done with real people on real skin but still - using a good sunscreen next to MP containing products is a good idea. (Well, in fact using a sunscreen is always a good idea. :))

I have never made a secret about my love for a good William S. Hart western and his films have a rather high survival rate, though the quality of the prints varies. However, there are still some titles that are gone forever. The Gun Fighter looked like it was in that unfortunate category. 9.5mm condensations have been circulating among collectors for years but the bulk of the footage and all the original title cards have been gone for almost 100 years.

Of course, this creates another minor mystery because silent films generally had a second camera grinding away for the foreign market and why bother making dissolves for English titles on a foreign print? Perhaps there was enough of an overseas English speaking market for the dissolves in the second camera to be worth the trouble. The Gun Fighter was released prior to the United States entering the First World War so the troops are not the answer but Britain, Australia, New Zealand, etc. would likely have enjoyed a good western.

Ultimately, colonies that are bright, vivid, beautiful and have been in a reef tank for a good while will always give the best chance of having one of their frags successfully thrive and wonderfully color in your tank. A plain, blah looking frag from a stunning tank-raised colony is truly preferable to a colorful frag without history. Colorful frags from freshly imported colonies can easily turn out to grow into duds, but frags from beautiful, brightly colored tank grown colonies will almost always turn out well. Colonies that are recently imported might be bright with exotic colors but there is a high probability that the colors will change and falter once accustomed to aquarium life and artificial lighting.

The most important characteristics for a successful reef tank and ultimately colorful coral are both vigilance and diligence. You must test your tank frequently and observe your corals regularly for signs of good health. Most everyone enjoys looking at his or her beautiful colored SPS, so constant observation is easy to achieve. Testing your tank parameters is not difficult but does require commitment.

Corals require nutrients. It seems the best source of coral food is happy fish doing what fish do after they eat: poop. So the best coral food is simply any good fish food that is enjoyed by your fish. There are many manufactured food choices as well as custom home blends that provide appropriate nutrition for your fish and ultimately your SPS coral.

Tribal Villages (also known as goody huts) are inhabited by non-civilized natives who, unlike Barbarians, are friendly to civilizations. They utilize the same mechanics as Ancient Ruins in Civilization V - the first civilization whose unit enters their tile receives some kind of bonus. The village is removed from the game immediately afterwards, meaning that this is a one-time bonus which will only be given to the first civilization to find and "activate" the village. Tribal Villages spawn randomly across the map at the start of a game. Recon units gain +5 XP when activating a tribal village. Sumerians get a Tribal Village reward every time they capture a Barbarian Outpost.

Bacall possessed a wide range. In Key Largo, though co-starred again with Bogie, she essayed an unusually demure, vulnerable character. Over the course of her career, she played everything from murderesses to abused wives to spunky gold-diggers. But she was at her most iconic as the good bad girl, the woman fit to accompany Bogie down the mean streets of noir as his equal.

Store-bought isn't usually anywhere near as good as the bakery version, but these frozen croissants are the exception. Let them rise at room temperature for a few hours and then bake them to golden, buttery, flaky perfection.

This take on the Alsatian tarte flambée has been a constant fixture in the frozen aisle for over a decade, and it's still a crowd favorite for good reason. Loaded with Gruyère cheese, caramelized onion, and thinly sliced ham, I can attest to the deliciousness.

Broccoli comes in a little lower than the other leafy greens, but it still has a good nitrate content. In 100g of broccoli, you get around 39.5 mg of nitrates, which the body can later convert into nitric oxide.
