Taco Bell unveils new restaurant design, emphasizing the drive-thru and limiting human interaction

michael jhon

Taco Bell’s newest restaurant design emphasizes the drive-thru and limits human interaction, making it more suitable for the coronavirus era.

The most significant difference is the size. Taco Bell is cutting back on dining room seating and adding a second drive-thru lane dedicated to pick-up orders made on its app. The “Go Mobile” concept is debuting next year.

The “evolved restaurant is specifically designed for guests to order ahead through the brand’s mobile app and enjoy the Taco Bell experience in a frictionless way,” the company said in a release Thursday.

The design is in response to the changing ways consumers began ordering fast food since the pandemic’s start. Digital orders and drive-thrus exploded in popularity for basically every chain, including Chipotle, McDonald’s and Starbucks.

Taco Bell owner Yum! Brands said it served an additional 5 million cars through the taco chain’s drive-thrus compared with the same time a year

The price for Matthew Perry’s “mansion in the sky” is coming back down to earth. The actor of “Friends” fame relisted his Century City penthouse this week for $27 million, down from $35 million last year.

Located within the Century high-rise, the full-floor residence was reimagined during Perry’s ownership by architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Pagano.

Subdued colors, textured accents and modern fixtures dominate the 9,300-square-foot floor plan. Four private terraces take in views from every direction.

An open-concept living room, center-island kitchen and custom screening room are among the living spaces. Four bedrooms include an expanded master suite outfitted with dual bathrooms, walk-in closets and a plush sitting area.

The 140-unit Century building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, was completed in 2009. Concierge and security services, a fitness studio, a swimming pool and four acres of gardens

Dirty Fingernails: Garden scissors and string trimmer best tools for weed control | Local News

When you look at that list, you will be able to see what applies to your garden corner. Change the nutrition, compaction, drainage, or shade, and your garden plants soon will outgrow the moss.

Meanwhile, you need not worry about getting rid of moss. It does not harm other plants, does not even compete with them. Moss simply sits there on the soil surface, filling in a blank.

Q: How thorough a job should I be doing at pulling the roots of weeds?

A: I would not bother with weed roots at all. Save time and energy by cutting the weeds at ground level. Leave the roots to decay in the ground; they will add organic matter to the soil.

The last weed will never disappear from garden or lawn. Weeds are the adventurers, the pioneers, the buccaneers of the plant world. The gardener’s job is to hold weeds to

5 tips on how to conserve energy with household appliances

michael jhon

As residents in South Texas already know, August weather can be brutal — with temperatures reaching 100 degrees or higher.

According to CPS Energy, high-energy demand days are a few days each summer when demand for electricity is highest, and they typically occur from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on very hot days.

Every bit of conserved energy helps CPS Energy continue to power San Antonio. CPS Energy has provided five tips on how you can potentially save money on your energy bill by conserving energy with your washer, dryer and dishwasher.

  1. Save money by letting the Texas heat dry your clothes. Use a clothesline or drying rack instead of the dryer. If your clothes dry a little stiff, use your dryer’s fluff cycle (before 3 p.m. or after 7 p.m.).
  2. Run your washer, dryer and dishwasher only when they are fully loaded.
  3. Wash your laundry with cold water.
  4. Don’t

“For downtown living, to have sunny and shady spots, plenty of room for recreation and some nice sitting areas … that is pretty unique,” she said. “Plus, I’ve planted hundreds of bulbs through the years, so you’ll have something blooming all four seasons. It’s very pretty.”

Perhaps the Castles’ favorite upgrade has been the home’s attic. They have morphed the third-floor space into a contemporary, bright and insulated haven, perfect for kids’ slumber parties or, on the flip side, a quiet area for guests.

Also upstairs are the home’s four bedrooms, three of which have their own bathrooms.

Whereas the attic certainly emits modern vibes, the bulk of the home retains its historic allure. Among the features you’ll notice throughout are its original blown-glass windows, towering arches, original hardware on doors, real plaster walls, resurfaced hardwood floors and pocket doors.

Upon arrival to its front patio, you’ll notice the ornate
