“It’s the best thing since sliced bread!” is a modern saying. But where does it come from?
“Otto Frederick Rohwedder was an American inventor and engineer who created the first automatic bread-slicing machine for commercial use. It was first used by the Chillicothe Baking Company.”
Since then, we have seen pre-sliced bread in so many recipes and favorite meals.
I love grilled cheese and tuna sandwiches. What about you?
First of all, I would like to congratulate ALL of the champions who have participated in this national event. I was at the Opening Ceremonies on June 15th, where law enforcement representatives and athletes from throughout the United States, who ran together for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, brought the Flame of Hope to light the cauldron at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It was spectacular!

I saw this photo in my Facebook News Feed today and it intrigued me, so I looked it up. Originally, I thought that the couple in the painting was pregnant and that the butterflies coming out of her belly represented the life cycle, but I was wrong. It turns out that this painting is only a part of a series of paintings that represent a love story.
Each photo in this set has a symbol in it. I think it is truly amazing and awe-inspiring.
This project was published on Bēhance, an online platform from Adobe that is designed for artists to showcase their creative work and get it discovered, on January 17, 2012, by Danny Quirk. He specializes in photorealistic watercolors, painting, and the things the camera cannot see. The “hidden eye”. His photos are perceived to be a bit dark, but they are really about exploration. He is best known for his series entitled ‘Anatomical Self-Dissections‘.
What the artist says about the series.
The piece was done as a sequential series, depicting the journey of love from rejection to reciprocation, based off personal accounts.
His career really took off after he painted his girlfriend like a zombie for Halloween one year. That was his first ever body painting. He describes the process he uses on IFLScience.
Watch Danny Quirk as he goes through the process of creating an anatomical dissection body painting.
