Happy 7-11 Day!!

It's going to be another sweltering day here in Austin and I've got the perfect way to celebrate! To commemorate 7-Eleven, Inc.’s 84th birthday on July 11th, aka 7-Eleven Day, participating 7-Eleven® stores across the nation will celebrate by giving customers a free 7.11-oz size Slurpee® beverage. As a special birthday treat, the 7-Eleven store at 2600 Guadalupe in Austin, TX 78705 will hold a series of competitions, including timed Slurpee-drinking contests, one-minute 7-Eleven-themed challenges and a Twitter popularity contest. Winners will be rewarded with exclusive 7-Eleven prizes. With the theme “Our Birthday – Your Bash,” participating 7-Eleven stores will thank customers for their patronage and support by offering a free Slurpee in a cup specially designed for this day while supplies last. Fans in Austin will get an extra treat by participating in a variety of prize-winning games to round out the birthday celebration. Stop the the 7-11 at 2600 Guadalupe between 11:30 and 1:30 for all the fun!!

The Dirty Dozen Foods For 2011

 
 
Apples, celery and strawberries are at the top of the latest "Dirty Dozen" list compiled by the Environmental Working Group, while onions, sweet corn and pineapples are among the "Clean 15" fruits and vegetables the EWG says are least likely to carry pesticide residue.
 
In releasing the 2011 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce, its seventh edition, the advocacy group emphasized that the health benefits of a diet abundant with fruits and vegetables outweigh the risk of pesticide exposure.
Below is a list of the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15:
Dirty Dozen:  Apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, imported nectarines, imported grades, sweet bell peppers, potatoes, domestic blueberries, lettuce, kale/collard greens.
 
Clean 15: Onions, sweet corn, pineapples, avocado, asparagus, sweet peas, mangoes, eggplant, domestic cantaloupe, kiwi, cabbage, watermelon, sweet potatoes, grapefruit, mushrooms.
