  • While going to my mailbox I ran into my neighbor that plays for our local NFL franchise.  He seemed like he was in the doldrums, but I did tell him that I was proud of him and the team and thanked them for such a fun season.  He still seemed in the doldrums, perhaps I should have done a song and dance.
  • While driving home from my allergist on MacArthur Boulevard through Coppell traffic came to a stop.  A very young boy was trying to catch his dog that came off his leash, and the dog was darting from the grassy medium to both sides of the streets as if it was a game.  That poor kid had a look of worry and hopelessness that would break your heart.  One fancy sports car pulled over and Dallas Cowboy Brandon Carr stepped out to help wrangle up the canine.  And yes, there’s probably some joke I could have thrown in about his defensive coverage skills, but that fruit seemed a bit low hanging.
  • Speaking of dogs and allergies . . . I had an allergy test performed yesterday.  This is actually the third one of these I’ve had (why so many is another story), and I’ve had mixed results.  The results of one test said I was allergic to dogs and the results of the others said I wasn’t, yesterday’s also said I wasn’t.  I also had a blood test to see what kind of foods I’m allergic to and plan on adjusting my diet accordingly.
  • I get a small bit of satisfaction when I finish typing and email and use the Ctrl+Enter keyboard shortcut to send it off.
  • This is a little late, but Kirk Cameron is selling Saving Christmas Blend coffee.  I thought some of purchase funds would go to some kind of charity, but I couldn’t anything that stated such on a cursory glace.
  • Man Saves Wife’s Sight by 3D Printing Her Tumor – When his wife was misdiagnosed, Michael Balzer used 3D printing and imaging to get her well
  • Biggest North Texas Speed Trap Cities of 2014
  • I do enjoy finding Disney related stuff on the web, but a lot of times I post them because I know one particular reader enjoys them – 15 Disney Attractions You’ll Never Ride Again
  • 8 Logical Fallacies That Fuel Anti-Science Sentiments
  • GOP’s Mike Huckabee Questions the Obamas’ Parenting of Sasha and Malia – Granted, it’s People magazine so it doesn’t have much substance, but that headline is a bit misleading. Huckabee just doesn’t think Beyonce is someone the Obama girls should be looking up to.
  • I had no idea that President Nixon and Gov Mario Cuomo were good friends and even exchanged books with updated notations.
  • 2016 Presidential Form 2 Filers
  • This story of a handcuffed teen yelling for help for the heart attacked policeman that arrested him somewhat reminded me of the prisoners that rescued a warden from another inmate.

    The Disney links are much appreciated, sir. Keep 'em coming! As for today's', it kind of made me sad. Some of those attractions were classics that made up a big part of my childhood. Of course, I'm also an advocate for progress and some of them really needed to be either totally overhauled or replaced, but I still get nostalgic for things that made me so happy as a kid.

    Saving Christmas made the Razzies nominations list yesterday. I hope it wins.

    I hope your neighbor re-signs with the team. I'd hate to see him go.
