I bring my scales to my trips

I have two digital kitchen scales (Soehnle brand), a small, and a bigger one. I also have a bathroom scale to measure my weight. When I go on a trip, I bring them with me, and I continue scaling as I do at home.

Pin as tab the Nutrition tracker page (Firefox 4)

I used "Pin as tab" in Firefox 4 to fix my daily nutrition tracker page.
This way, my nutrition tracker is always there one click away when Firefox opens up. It is less time to add food, and I am more likely to track. ("Pin as tab" is also useful for gmail and facebook.)
