It's summer time! And with some parties around the corner comes the need for cool drinks. But how do you keep them cool when the space in the fridge is already taken by BBQ stuff and other food?
A cooler is the perfect solution. So, after more than 6 years in California, Guido and I finally went shopping for one. They come in many different sizes - from small personal boxes to large family coolers with wheels - and various prize ranges from about $15 to $300+. Let me proudly present our cooler of choice: It comes with a fully insulated body and lid, durable wheels, a telescope handle that makes it easy to tow and it holds up to 40 U.S. quarts/37 liters/63 cans.
But why as a proud new owner of a cooler do I feel a bit more Americanized? Yes indeed, the portable cool box was first invented by Richard C. Laramy of Joliet, Illinois in 1951. He got his idea patented in 1953. :-)
Enjoy your summer!
