It seems to me as though Bourbon has become fashionable, it is talked about everywhere and the liquor stores and grocery stores are giving more and more shelf space to it. Bourbon is being made in all kinds of places... Continue reading

Fox2 weatherman, Dave Murray, put up this story last night: "THREE WEEKS WITHOUT SUNSPOTS: The sun has been blank for 21 straight days--a remarkable 3 weeks without sunspots. This is an almost decade-class event. The last time the sun lost... Continue reading

Lots of chuckling online and on local news programs this morning over a Wisconsin cyclist who stupidly decided to bike across a bridge just as the bridge was raising up so a boat could pass underneath. She road right into... Continue reading

Discovered a couple of extra odd things after Saturday's storm and power outage here on the campus. Not only did the storm turn on our gas fireplace, but it knocked out a couple of electric sockets. Not all, just two.... Continue reading

I came across this photo from July 2011. It's a picture of a traffic jam on the Poplar due to construction. Deja Vu all over again. Or, just non-stop yearly Poplar work. Continue reading

We had a heck of a late afternoon/early evening story yesterday. Thunder/lightning/heavy rain/ power outages all after a really stifling hot day. As it began I took a couple of pictures from our back deck in Collinsville. We could certainly... Continue reading

On Saturday we took the boys to a great great park in Wheaton Maryland, not far from where Katie lives. This place was known to locals as the Blue Mountain playground, but is much more than that. Wheaton Regional Park... Continue reading

I guess there's a Day for everything, but this seems to be a stretch. But since it is National French Fry Day, leave it to news people to use it to fill their time. Randi Naughton on Fox2Now asked, "Where... Continue reading

One thing about Facebook and Twitter, it gives local news outlets the opportunity to post links to stories from other areas which are just bizarre. And that could just be the point, the headlines are written to get you to... Continue reading
