In the presence of champions ...

Very cool news: Roger-Bob was named Volunteer of the Year at the Resource Center of Dallas' Volunteer Appreciation Party last night. He says they logged him at 504 hours last year, which is more hours that some people work for pay in a year! Great job, R-B!

What a mouthful
The Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) has an item on their website about Not-So-Spontaneous Human Combustion, a topic which continues to fascinate me. Will I, someday, just burst into flames? This reminds me of the awe-inspiring 1998 Super Bowl Tabasco commercial, where a mosquito not-so-spontaneously combusted (and not a word of dialogue!).

Being Super Bowl Sunday, I will make my annual pilgrimage to the nearest Golden Chick Restaurant for some of their mouth-waterin' chicken wings. What? They don't have barbecued wings?!? Plan B: phone an order into WingStop (next to Kroger) or WingZone (next to Neighborhood Market) before the 5:25pm start! (None of this will mean much to the British Expatriates, who think football is played with a round soccer ball - ha!)

(speaking of Neighborhood Market) their parent company is in the news again: Wal-Mart on PR Offensive to Repair Image. The antithesis of Wal-Mart is small business, an example being the 12 people behind Guru Reports (Automotive-Related Research), who explain how I should wax my car (among other automotive stuff).

Random Spot: Texas Fast Facts and Trivia contains that silly myth about the Texas flag - the one that says it should be flown at the same height as the US flag is pure, unadulterated balderdash!
