Toyo Observe G-02 Plus

Toyo went nuts for traction and added ground walnut shells to the tire to act as mini stud. It works.


I guess the squirrels will have a few less snacks for the winters. Our new winter tires (not sure if they are the same brand as above) have crushed nut shells in them. I can't help but grab DS's hand as we walks by the car even though the 1000 degree+ temps to melt the rubber I'm sure destroyed any protein in there. Yuck.

Luckily DS has outgrown shellfish but for those who haven't ...heads up....last year leaving a big box store there was all the summer topsoil stacked outside. I noticed a white bag with pictures of shrimp all over it. Sure enough, the topsoil is "enriched" with shrimp shells. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

There was an add on TV the other night for hand lotion, almond oil enriched. Brain fart and I cant remember which one so I won't post the name. But I need to look it up to be sure we don't buy it. It was just a standard normal grocery store style lotion. :frightened

You know, everyone wonders about all the allergies nowadays, there are nut oils and crustasians and seed oils etc. in every single solitary food, product, non food item we use/eat. I don't know about you buy my grama never used an 'enriched ' anything in her life and she looked better than anyone half her age.
