All Hail July, indisputable summer in the Northern Hemisphere! Around these parts, summer means baseball at Fenway Park, home-grown tomatoes, kayaking, slowing down in the late afternoons for a cool beverage on the patio, and occasionally ice cream for breakfast. What could be better?

Even if you aren’t a Red Sox fan, you might enjoy the ACS’s Youtube channel, Reactions. And what summer would be complete without ice cream and Sriracha? Take a gander at:
