  2. CELL PHONE FINE PRINTFri, 16 Nov 2012 16:19:21 EST
    I took a stroll up Radio Shack today to buy a microphone for my computer, by the way they dont carry them any more. They have sent them all to the Newport store, which apparently is a hotbed for microphone usage.But, that is not the point of this article. It is really about cell phones. I took a short 4 block walk to Radio Shack today and I saw a women almost get mowed down in a crosswalk. I noticed, the driver turned pale, but she didnt appear to hear or see her near brush with death. She was busy talking on her cell. Another women plowed into me when I was coming out of the Carew Tower on Vine Street. I dont think she noticed eithertoo busy talking on the phone. At least she didnt acknowledge the collision or ask if I was all right.

  19. STUPID CRIMINALMon, 09 Nov 2009 07:30:37 EST
    Did you read about the "braintrust" in Appleton, Wisconsin, who decided to surprise his ex-girlfriend with a drive-by shooting of her house. A dumb idea in any case, but even dumber in this guy's case. First, the girlfriend was away at school. Maybe the reason they broke up is because he had absolutely no idea what she was about. Second, he forgot to roll down the window when firing the shot. So, glass shattered, and the police just had to check glass repair shops to see if he had brought his car in for repairs. He had, of course, and not only that. He filed an insurance claim for the broken glass.

Get over there quick, I'm sure it won't last long. Somebody must have goofed. There is always at least one escalator down.

    This is kind of a weird couple of weeks. Halloween is over, but the Thanksgiving and holiday season has not quite started as yet, except at Macy's of course. They have already had their Christmas trees up for weeks. But, other than that, there's not a whole lot happening. Except, of course, for a day I know you won't want to forget...TODAY, NOVEMBER 2 is '"NATIONAL DEVILED EGG DAY".

  26. FAME! THIS VERSION WON'T LIVE FOREVERMon, 28 Sep 2009 16:02:14 EST
    The latest version of Fame! opened last week, and a friend of mine just had to see it. She loved the old T.V. series, and I must say, I thought that was a good show as well. The scene, again, is a performing arts high school in Manhattan. The film begins on Audition Day, with thousands of hopefuls trying to get into the prestigious school. We see bits and pieces of try-outs of what seems like hundreds of kids, but I couldnt really get a feel for anyone. The teachers conduct the auditions, and we meet Debbie Allen, the school principal; Bebe Neuwirth, the dance teacher; Megan Mullally, the vocal coach; Kelsey Grammer, the piano instructor; and Charles S. Dutton, the acting coach. Misses Neuwirth and Mullally added a bit of spark, but the others could have been played by your local high school guidance counselor.

  27. JULIE AND JULIA, ENTERTAINMENT FEAST OR FAMINE?Wed, 02 Sep 2009 10:22:30 EST
    The new film, Julie & Julia is based on two true memoirs, authored by famous chef, Julia Child, and aspiring writer and blogger, Julie Powell. The movie drifts back and forth between the lives of Ms. Child (Meryl Streep) and husband Paul (Stanley Tucci) and Ms. Powell (Amy Adams) and husband, Eric (Chris Messina). All four of these main characters are likable, smart and sympathetic, but the lives of the Childs overshadow those of their counterparts throughout the movie.

    Health care isn't working for America's middle class. It's too expensive and uncertain -- and it's crippling the economy. Because Congress is on recess this month, our friends at AFSCME rented an RV and converted it into a mobile action center to crisscross the country -- to states and districts where the most important votes are -- to keep the pressure on.

  30. Automobile ClubThu, 13 Aug 2009 09:36:28 EST
    Have you seen those ads for the membership in the Automobile Club that are on television right now. If you sign up for membership, you get to enroll a second household member for free. Sounds great doesn't it? That is unless you are already a member, then you get to pay $34 for the second household member. I have been a member of the Automobile Club for over 30 years (I know I am giving away my age), and for most of that time, I have had a second household member on my membership. In fact, I just got my bill. Thinking that as a good customer I would be entitled to the same offer that they give to new members, I called AAA. I was wrong, no dice. I had to pay $34. Doesn't seem right, does it?

    Were things a little dark and quiet when you came into your office this morning? Duke Energy experienced a power outage downtown very early this morning...between 1:00 and 1:30a.m. Even though they got the power on quickly, the outage wreaked havoc on many office computer systems, including my own. Servers were down and didn't want to come back up. I wasn't able to update the website until late morning, so I apologize for the old news this morning and hope that your day is going better than mine.

    Cincinnati lost one of its most treasured citizens on Sunday. Mr. Harris K. Weston, a partner at Dinsmore and Shohl for more than 50 years passed away. Mr. Weston was 91 years old and sharp as a tack. He was always a gentleman and a scholar and he will be sorely missed in the community.

  37. The ProposalWed, 17 Jun 2009 09:41:07 EST
    I must admit, I was of two minds when I heard about Sandra Bullocks new film, The Proposal. First, I knew I would see it. I really like Ms. Bullock, (and Ryan Reynolds is a real cutie), and sometimes you just need a light, little romantic comedy to make you feel good. Whenever I think of Ms. Bullock, however, I get flashbacks of that horrible little film, Miss Congeniality 2, and I fear shes gone down that inane and ridiculous road again.
