Break Time: Wine, Popsicles & Ants.

July is wrapping up, and I have picnics on the brain. The food, the grass, the relaxed mood—nothing beats an al fresco dinner. So, to end the week, I leave you with a few articles on some picnic essentials: wine, frosty treats, and those little six-legged party crashers.

When it comes to wine, I’m pretty flexible. As long as it’s not too pricey and not too sweet, I’m happy. But this roundup up of the most expensive bottles of wine in history, blows my $10 favorites out of the water!

One summer, in college, my friends and I pounded through a carton—yes, a carton—of ice pops per weekend. Needless to say, I’m a bit of a frozen ice expert. Collectors Weekly looked back on the history of the cold concoction. But, don’t read it too fast, you’ll get mental brain freeze.

No picnic is complete without a visit from a few scurrying black ants. But why not add some color? Scientist Mohamed Babu fed dyed sugar water to translucent ants and the result was a brilliant kaleidoscope of creepy crawlies.
