* Over on Gimundo, I saw a little piece about miracle fruit — I’d read before about this berry, which makes sour things taste sweet. I’m so curious to try it; something to put on my life to-do list.
* I send out short monthly newsletters that highlight the best of the previous month’s posts to about 23,000 subscribers. If you’d like to sign up, click here or email me at grubin, then the “at” sign, then gretchenrubin dot com. (sorry about that weird format – trying to to thwart spammers.) Just write “newsletter” in the subject line. It’s free.
