Holy Snow Rollers.. Check This Out!

"Snow Rollers" have been forming in the Midwest due to the amount of snowfall and windy conditions.

The sculptures have become big hits on Twitter and Facebook.

The rollers are formed from a combination of sticky snow, fairly strong winds and cold temperatures. Most of them are too light to be picked up but some people have been able to take them inside to try to preserve their shape.

Some have gotten to be the size of basketballs.

Girl Scout Cookies Go Gluten Free 

The Girl Scouts are now offering gluten-free cookies!

The Girl Scouts of America are rolling out their first gluten-free cookie, the Chocolate Chip Shortbread, in 20 select markets.

The cookie is reportedly "made with real chocolate chips and real butter" and that it "contains no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no high fructose corn syrup, no palm oil and no hydrogenated oils."

If the cookies perform well in those locations, they may go national next cookie season.

There's also another new cookie in the troop this year called the Cranberry Citrus Crisp, made from whole grains, cranberry bits and citrus flavors.

Addicted To Your Smart Phone.. There's An App For That

There's a new app that tells you if you are addicted to your smartphone.

The free Android app called Menthal monitors your smartphone usage to see if you are dependent on it. It tells you how long you spend on the phone per day and which apps you use the most.

The app will also use your results to gauge your mood.  For example, if you spend a lot of time messaging and chatting with friends, this might be an indicator that you are feeling cheerful whereas fewer interactions could mean that you are feeling depressed.
