A good chuckle for a Saturday :-)     Police in Georgia shared this security camera footage of a GameStop store burglar who tried to conceal his face with an unusual disguise -- a clear plastic wrapper.   As pictured above, the video shows the male suspect wearing the plastic wrapper from a package of bottled water over his head, completely failing to hide his face with the clear plastic.   Police are asking members of the public for help identifying the "craftily disguised ...

I, and other members of the book club I belong to, had a special treat last night. A delicious dinner at the Friars with the author of the book we read.   Marty Appel, author of 20 books, PR Director for the Yankees among other very notable achievements, was there to talk about his experiences with the Yankees and most importantly about his latest book, Casey Stengel. Wearing a World Series ring, he recounted many inside stories that we all loved to hear.   Now I could tell y...

Tooling along in the right lane, south on rte 135, last week at about 60 mph (cruise control), listening to a book, heat seater and steering wheel heater on, and I'm enjoying the moment.   A blue Subaru mini SUV pulls up to my left in the middle lane and slows down. They position themselves just off my left front bumper. Then, without notice, they move into my lane. I step on my brakes while simultaeously downshifting to avoid an accident. The Subaru, seemingly unfazed, conti...

Your intrepid blogger has dug up a fascinating true story.   More than 131 years after being thrown overboard, the world's oldest message in a bottle has washed up on a beach in western Australia. The bottle was found by Tonya Illman and Grace Ricciardo in the dunes near Wedge Island in January.   Weeks of research traced the historic note back to 19th century Germany. Mrs Illman and her husband Kym placed the note in an oven to dry it out before unravelling it to reveal a s...

There's nothing like a good massage. It loosens up your whole body and relaxes your mind.   I was fortunate to enjoy one last week. My masseuse was a woman who was obviously visually impaired but she greeted me with a warm smile and showed me to the room, subtly touching her surroundings as she found her way. While I undressed I wondered what this was going to be like. A woman who could not see the world like I experience it. I felt sad.   As she started to work on my back I ...

Several of my friends often plan Uber nights. It's essentially a plan to drink and let Uber drive you around. Everyone can drink and not worry about driving home.   Well here's an interesting result of an Uber night as reported by SkyNews. A drunk Uber user was hit with a $1,635 bill after falling asleep and embarking on a 300-mile journey across three states.   Kenny Bachman, after a night out with friends in Morgantown, West Virginia decided to get Uber to take him back to...

Imagine walking into a restaurant, bar or public place and no one is on their phone. Lot's of interaction...people talking smiling, arguing and sharing. It's unusual these days.   However, The Fat Boar, a pub in Wrexham, north Wales, is offering people 25 per cent off their food if they lock their phones away in a box on the table. They then have to hand the keys over to staff for the entire duration of their meal.   The owners had gotten so fed up of seeing their customers g...

If you want to buy a :30 spot on the Super Bowl you better open up your wallet because it now costs over $5million. That doesn't even include making the commerical which could cost anywhere from $1m - $5m. Last year the Super Bowl raked in over $419 million in air time   Why so much you ask? Because the audience is over 100 million which is just about double the next biggest event on TV (which BTW is the Super Bowl postgame :) AND if the spot is a hit, it will get millions of...

Apparently in France people take their Nutella very seriously.     Parisian's emotional connections to Nutella were on display when a French supermarket chain drastically cut the price of a 2 lb jar of Nutella on Thursday. This resulted in never before seen outbursts of violence between customers fighting to get their hands on the product.   “They are like animals. One woman had her hair pulled. An elderly lady took a box on her head. Another had a bloody hand,” reported a l...

What follows are some funny tweets I found...enjoy!   "I just spent 20 minutes at the store choosing the best food with only organic ingredients for my dog, then took my kids to Burger King."   "Steps to survive on a dessert island: 1. check spelling 2. if correct, enjoy"   "Carrots are a great thing to eat when you are hungry and want to stay that way"     "Welcome to the DMV waiting room, if you don’t have a cough, one will be issued to you"     "Interviewer: what are your ...
