Peculiar Treasures Snack Size Edition

By Kellie Purcill



A short and sweet Peculiar Treasures today, to go along with the sugar rush many had last week.

Can your leftover Halloween candy charge your phone or do pullups? Yes it can! Did you coordinate your costume to your kid’s, like this awesome Dad?

Food allergies and crazes continue – here’s looking at you, gluten! And here’s to growing food right under a freeway overpass.

Time waits for nobody – though the new 69 year-old “face” of Paris L’Oreal has in her contract the company will not Photoshop her face. Lava also waits for nobody, or their cemeteries.

Are you being cruel to yourself about your Halloween? Or yourself in general? Have a look at your belly, raise your hands, take a breath, move, swim, have some cake. Be gentle with who you are.

  1. That underpass farm was very emotionally moving for me to read about. How beautiful to create so much life and joy from something that seemed so dead and hopeless.
