What makes a truly great milkshake? Greedily drinking down my umpteenth test subject, I must ask myself this vital question. Why is this one superlative, crave-worthy at all times, while an equally priced, similarly composed competitor is more like a nuclear meltdown in a cup?

Judging objectively, it all comes down to texture, which encompasses a number ...

These grape buds will open soon, then as the grape berries form and get heavier, the bunch will bend downward. Today is a busy day for me. Tasha has a grooming app...
