1.) This Sunday, the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Smithsburg, Maryland will host their first “Doggy Day Service.” Starting this weekend, the last Sunday of each month the church will hold canine services. The idea is an effort to attract worshippers who consider their pets to be a part of their families. Rev.Al Deal says his biggest concern is the cleanup after the service. In addition to pet-friendly services, Deal plans to include a time for Sunday school for his members and their pets, including cats, depending how well the dogs behave.
2.) If you use a cup of coffee to jump start your day, there could be a tastier alternative. Wired Waffles pack a secret ingredient to get you going. Every 2 ½ ounce waffle packs 200mg of caffeine, mean that two waffles for breakfast will pack a stronger punch than a grande coffee from Starbucks. You can order them in a number of flavors like Bacon Maple, Sweet Sugar, Cinnamon, and Chocolate Chip. Plus, you can get an extra kick with their caffeinated maple syrup.
3) It took scientists a long time to discover it, but there’s a good reason. From above, it looks like a dead leaf. But today, there is a new species of toad – the Rhinella Yunga. The toad was discovered living in the Peruvian Andes. It’s so hard to find because it hangs out on forest floors among dead leaves. The toad not only has the right coloring to blend in, but it also has bony protrusions that make it look more leaf-like.
