Make 5 Dinners in One Hour unfolds convenient meal plans that allow busy families to assemble five days' worth of meals in one brief sitting and avoid overbuying groceries. At the beginning of each month, culinary planners issue recipes for four weeks' worth of meals via email. Included grocery lists allow customers to buy only the exact ingredients they need, avoiding unnecessary items, such as canned donuts and loose yogurt. Instructions guide cooks through each entree, stocking the fridge with five days' worth of dinner in about 60 minutes, with dinners in the past including roasted sausage, peppers, and onions with mashed potatoes, and jerky turkey burgers with sweet potato fries. Although each meal plan is laid out for a family of five or five children raising each other in a boxcar, recipes and grocery lists are easily amendable for smaller undertakings, and side dishes can easily be swapped out depending on personal tastes and compatibility with entrees in online quizzes.
Bounce Town is a strange place to live. Especially since its inflatable houses were built for no other purpose than to entertain the town’s transient population of children. At the colorfully decorated indoor playground, youngsters ages 12 and under bound from squishy slides to plush obstacle courses, and only stop when asked to serve as jurors in juice box theft trials. On Friday mornings, Bounce Town lets tykes frolic freely during two-hour open jump sessions. The center’s highly attentive supervisors also keep the good times rolling during after-school and summer child care programs, as well as private party packages to celebrate birthdays or other special occasions.

Somewhere in Oregon every November, a flatbed truck trundles down the lone dirt road past row upon row of fir trees. Every mile or so, one of a team of winter-weather lumberjacks jumps down from the cab of the truck and gets to work cutting and piling eight-foot firs. That's when a duo of choppers circles the man-made forest, air-lifting each tree and dropping them off near the truck where they're bundled and loaded for the long drive back to Texas.
