Thank you, Jim.
When I asked for directions outside the Summit train station this afternoon, you could have simply pointed to the street and gone on your way.
But you smiled and asked where I was headed and, in typical small-town fashion, offered to give me a ride to my hotel because of the intense heat.
I could have put up my big-city blinders and refused, but I could tell — you were just being nice. So I got a ride and a fun, impromptu tour of Summit.
After a delayed, packed train ride, it was an unexpected pleasure.
Thanks again for taking the time.

Dear Time Warner:
Ms. King didn’t enjoy your phone calls, and who can blame her. Your customer service representatives called her — after she explained that they had the wrong number — an additional 74 times to harass her about a previous client’s unpaid bill.
Now a court says you owe her $229,500 under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
So, call me instead. I’m an actual Time Warner Customer. I even pay my bills. And I’ll only charge you…$1,000 a call.

This was a crappy day.
I woke up to a vomiting dog. He’s feeling much better now, but it took a $400 vet visit to do the job.
My to-do list was repeatedly stymied by frustrating people and annoying road blocks.
And my evening dog walk, usually my stress reducer, was washed out — literally — by a cloud burst that left me and Rory sopping wet.
Yep, crappy was the word of the day. So this video really spoke to me.
…and puts a smile on my face! Great way to put this day to bed and start fresh tomorrow.

Everyone should have an opportunity to read the closing paragraph of the Supreme Court ruling–authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy–that has changed our country for the better.

This article in your latest edition of Bulletin arrived just a bit too soon after the “60 is the new 40″ story…
Let me have my illusions, okay?
(Or should that be ‘geezer?’)

I’ve heard of throwing pizza dough in the air…
…but throwing pizza as a punch?
A Florida man threw a hot slice of pizza at his roommate, who called the cops.
And they arrested him.
Since this incident occurred in Florida, it’s really not all that surprising. What is surprising is that the guy didn’t eat the slice when he threw it at him.
When life gives you lemons, buddy. It is pizza, after all.
