David Cameron got a little emotional – for David Cameron, at least – at this week’s NATO summit on Ukraine.
The British prime minister, who will resign in October in the wake of the “Brexit” referendum, posed for photos with President Obama, German chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi and French president Francois Hollande after their meeting with Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko in Warsaw.
“The leaders posed for photos in a rather poky room, saying little beyond pleasantries,” read a White House pool report. “But as they parted, there was a wistful moment as Cameron bid Obama and the other leaders farewell. Read more…
Cheesecloth and muslin bags are the preferred wrapping material for bouquet garni (aka flavorful little bundles of tasty herbs and other flavorings), but a simple coffee filter can be used with the same results.
Not only I am much more likely to have coffee filters on hand than cheesecloth, but coffee filters are much cheaper (and compostable!). To make a little infusion packet for soups, teas, or tinctures, place your ingredients in the center of the filter, tie it up with a bit of twine, and submerge until your liquid is properly flavored. Remove, toss into the compost, and repeat as needed.

…My Anker cables have survived all sorts of use that have killed other cables many times over.
I originally purchased Monoprice cables, and they had a terrible tendency to fray and stop working. The great thing about Monoprice is that they have a lifetime warranty, but it’s a pain to keep replacing them.
Anker, on the other hand, are great and I am still on my original cables. They also do a bunch of customer appreciation stuff-I’ve received free cables, chargers, etc.
The only negative thing about Anker is that they, like many on Amazon, do the free-for-reviews thing. I hear Amazon is cracking down on that, so there you go: hate the game, not the player, I suppose. – Jägs
I haven’t found and Anker product yet that didn’t make me glad I made the selection. – VitaminCM
The only downside of PowerLine cables is that they’re somewhat expensive. Not compared to Apple’s own cables, of course, but they demand a premium among third party offerings. Luckily, Amazon’s own AmazonBasics Lightning cables are imminently affordable, and also proved to be quite popular.
I prefer the AmazonBasics 6 ft certified lightning cable. I have never had any issues with it breaking down. It doesn’t seem to tangle either. 6 ft means you can (usually) use your phone when it’s plugged into the wall, but it’s not so long that it’s entirely cumbersome. And it’s fairly cheap at $8. They’re the only kind I buy nowadays. – DigitallyCrazy
For a long time I would only buy Apple cables for a long time because the quality of the knockoff ones were so bad that it wasn’t worth the savings. I finally broke-down and got this cable for my bedside; I 100% agree with your nomination. Vote to you. – elpaco13
