I pulled this from Yahoo News:
Hmmm.. something to go with your Jolt Cola
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A molecular scientist who moonlights as a cafe owner developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods, one that eliminates the natural,bitter taste of caffeine.
"This gives people the opportunity if they want to have a glass of milk and want to have caffeine. It will get them going," Dr. Robert Bohannon said.

During our Mediterranean cruise, our ship made a special trip out to Stromboli. We were lucky enough to see one eruption like the one in this photo.
We didn't even attempt to take pictures so we could fully appreciate the moment.
To see more great pictures taken of Stromboli, visit Flickr.Stromboli is one of the Aeolian Islands of Italy. It is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth. It has been in nearly continuous eruption for about 2,000 years.

We started our vacation in Rome. Spent a few days in the city before starting our cruise. After the cruise, we spent one more day in Rome before flying back to Toronto.
We had a lot of gelati of course (Isak is having one in this pic).
My goodness, where do I start? From marvelling at the breathtaking Pantheon to being overwhelmed by St. Peter's basilica and the Sistine Chapel; devouring what seems to be the best pizza ever and having gelato every hour; from gawking at the ridiculous number of tourists everywhere to simply watching Romans go about their daily lives-- it was sensory overload and it was all good-- too good that we experienced a bit (just a tad) of a let downdown when it was time to start our Mediterranean cruise.

It seemed like there were Roman ruins at every corner we turned-- the power of the Empire that built Rome could be felt everywhere. The Colosseo (below) is a major tourist attraction.
Here is a view of Rome at night from the gardends of Villa Borghese.
Rows and rows of vespas and motorcycles parked on the street is a common sight in Rome.
