A walk in the Park, Volume 268

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today’s song is from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, and I noticed this morning that today is the 15th anniversary of the release of their “Californication” album.  What’s your favourite RHCP tune?  I have a really hard time trying to choose one… “Under The Bridge,” “Suck My Kiss,” “My Friends,” “Scar Tissue,” “Wet Sand,” even their “Higher Ground” cover.  Anyway, I really think the 2006 “Stadium Arcadium” double-album was one of the Chilis’ finest moments, and that’s where this track hails from.  Use your hand-eye coordination to activate the “play” button so you can use more of your senses to experience a funky little “STORM IN A TEACUP!”

ESSENTIAL BEER DRINKING GEAR: I really like beer, and I also like cool inventions for beer.  If you plan on enjoying some suds outdoors this Summer, then first you should check out a funky new cooler here.
CITRUS + SUNSHINE = HAPPINESS: It would seem that way, but apparently that’s not the case with Florida residents, as a new study suggests they’re more stressed-out than any other U.S. state.  Wrong coast maybe, California?  Surf the deceptively sunny story here.
SMART TV SECURITY FLAW: We all love our technology & gadgets, but it looks like there’s a vulnerability in 1000′s of new “smart TVs” out there.  I know when we bring our brand new 132-inch LED TV home, we just want to plug it in and start watching the hell out of it, before checking to make sure that the security in the new TV is properly configured.  But make sure your set is secure before you fire it up, find out what I’m talking about here.
BETTER POSTURE IS HEALTHIER: I’m not exactly a picture of good health, but I do like to find as many tips as I can to at least try to stay a little bit on the healthy side.  If you’re similar in your approach to healthy living, then stretch for a few good posture tips here.
