Trail of crumbs…

So I started with research I was doing for the network project that is due on Thursday. I wanted to look up pictures I was going to create into cartoons. The theme was donuts so I started by looking at pictures of donuts on Google.com

This is what led me to pictures found on the Dunkin’ Donuts website

http://www.dunkindonuts.com/dunkindonuts/en/menu.html

On there website there was this “MyPlate” thing that I have seen before. It is for eating healthy and I used it a lot for another class I took.

I found that you can actually buy plates that look just like the picture for adults and children. Which I found awesome because my boyfriend’s 3 year old niece is actually having trouble eating and learning about eating healthy in preschool. So I looked up where i could buy one cheaper than on the website.

While scrolling down the list of all the different plates I saw a wine glass that was very cool

I was actually looking for wine glasses! I ended my search there.

So I started at this (listing deleted) of a 2008 Scion xB that needed an engine

I flip cars on the side, so I did some research on how much an engine costs. Not pretty.
