You might think Ashby's Ice Cream has a strange sense of humor in offering a flavor called blueberry muffin top, but they do. Maybe blueberry isn't a top flavor choice or maybe their customers don't get the joke. Either way, it is not among the company's top 25 sellers. Then again, chocolate does not make the top 25 cut either losing out to cotton candy and Superman. While the calorie count for blueberry muffin top (180 per serving) does not rank it at the bottom of their offerings, there are many other flavors which are better options for developing your muffin top.

I was surprised to see the RNC now runs their own "tip line". The statement to "CALL RNC TIP LINE" followed by "1-800-CALL-FBI" makes me wonder if the party now believes they run the FBI.

As a youth, I would occasionally take my bike somewhere and shop. I had this item called a lock which secured the bike outside while I was inside. This shopper at a Walmart in Tulsa was gathering a few stares as he led his bike around the aisles. There were even more quizzical looks as he sat on the bike while waiting in line. Maybe Walmart should offer call ahead shopping with a bike-up window? ;)

My company recently restarted a facility. It had been closed before I joined the company in 2004. I've made a few visits the the site and recently needed a pen. I headed off to the storeroom and was surprised to see a healthy supply of floppy disks on a shelf. At 3.5" these were a big advance over the 5.25" previous generation. Today, I have three USB pocket drives that all have at least 16GB of memory. The raw images for this post were each larger than the capacity of these floppy disks.

Many airports have at least one shop selling wares that seem to be there solely for the traveler who realizes they forgot a gift for someone on their trip. With an unexpected eleven-hour layover in Denver, I found that shop in Denver airport.

We were at a Hudson Park and noticed they have added permanent cornhole fixtures. These are made from concrete and allow visitors to play the game by just bringing bags to the park. They look like a great idea for parks and maybe even businesses to provide recreation for employees. They are made and sold by a company called B.Y.O Bags.
Maryland's state song has some interesting lyrics....
I hear the distant thunder-hum,
The Old Line's bugle, fife, and drum,
She is not dead, nor deaf, nor dumb-
Huzza! she spurns the Northern scum!
She breathes! she burns! she'll come! she'll come!
Maryland! My Maryland!
Excuse me, am I the northern scum you spurn? Funny, you've always gleefully taken my tourism money.

I hope everyone remembered to celebrate this important day. ;-) Preparation and shopping is always an important part every holiday. Thankfully the local Heinens had stocked extra to prepare for the rush. Decisions, decisions...

January 30 was the date of the last Beatles concert. It was held on the roof of Apple Records. We were a little young for buying Beatles albums, but I had gathered a few long after the band was no more. Years ago, we added the entire collection as CD's. Besides great music, the video is an amazing snapshot of styles and London life in 1969 with mini-skirts, Jaguars, London taxis, and bobbies.
