Driving home from work yesterday on I35, I passed a garbage truck that had a flat tire; but, about twenty yards away from it on the access road was a tire store.
A friend recently shared his experience with me about a Baptist wedding he attended. As the couple exchanged vows, the groom “promised to be her leader” and the bride “promised to be her helper.” I’ve been to many Baptist weddings, but that was the first I’ve ever heard of this.
My new pastor left a comment on this blog yesterday, so I may have gained a new reader . . . now I wonder how long has he been reading and if I said anything that will come back to haunt me. 😉
I’ve been a DirecTV customer for a while now, and have been pretty pleased with their service. Yesterday in the mail they sent me a thank-you card for being a loyal customer and gave me three months of Showtime for free starting immediately, I didn’t have to do a thing.
I’ve cut my magazine subscription down to just one. I can find all the material I need to read online, and I’m doing this as a way to try to be more dedicated to books.
The sole magazine I still subscribe to is Mental_Floss, which comes out every other month and is a not too intelligent, intelligent read.
The government has a website to track stimulus funds called recovery.gov. However, I was listening to NPR yesterday (I’m still trying to get more cultured and intellectual) and they talked about a Seattle-based company called Onvia that runs recovery.org. It’s a bit more robust and detailed than the government’s site. For instance, you can break down what your state, county, and city are using regarding stimulus funds. I live in Lewisille, TX in Denton county, and found my city isn’t receiving any stimulus funds but our county received $848,898 to replace two bridges.
