Old Chinese Dessert Has Celebration TODAY!

Do you believe in luck over knowledge when it comes to surviving games of chance?  For example, I happen to know someone who proclaims to be a wizard when it comes to picking the ponies.  Have even accompanied him to Louisiana Downs, where I observed some minor magic.

I believe that no matter how intuitive one is, being a Svengali at the track likely results from the marriage between luck and knowledge.

Go Daddy Hacked, Affecting Millions of Businesses

Indy racer Danica Patrick's #7 car has become a well-known symbol for the company Go Daddy. Turns out, nobody could navigate Go Daddy out of yesterday's hack that shut down millions of websites.

If you went to a website on Monday and you got an error message, chances are it wasn't your internet connection. A hacker group has claimed responsibility for shutting down Go Daddy-hosted sites and causing millions of small businesses to have a hard time functioning. Why?

Isaac hits Louisiana, Louisiana hits back

If there's one thing we've learned about Hurricane Isaac so far, it's that the storm has a mind of its own. First it was making a beeline for the Florida panhandle. Then it changed its mind and headed straight for New Orleans. Isaac finally made landfall in Louisiana late Tuesday night, then retreated briefly back to the Gulf, as if Louisiana had just sucker-punched it right in the face and forced it to think twice about coming in there. But alas, Isaac has hit our neighbors to the east, and hurricane warnings are out.

What does that mean for East Texas?

5 Year Old Wears Wrong Team Shirt To School, Branded ‘Offensive’ [VIDEO]

I've absolutely had it with stupid, ridiculous, non-nonsensical rules, whereby the people drafting the code should be banished to that island that Tom Hanks was stranded on for four years in the movie "Castaway"!

Further, the lunatics of such gibberish, actually make the guys in the "Dumb and Dumber" flick retain respectability.

Allow me to vent forthright.

Austin Area Walmart Site of Early Morning Shooting

Another miscreant of society who probably doesn't have any responsibility in life because he's at an Austin area Walmart at 4:30 a.m. Sunday poppin' off a few rounds, 18 year old Soloman Onwukaife will undoubtedly unleash terror on society again, once he's let out of jail.

Unless we start giving the perpetrators a sentence befitting the crime, many more morons like Onwukaife wait in the wings to prove that shooting innocent people makes them a tough guy.

Never would have thought twenty years ago, that my television viewing today would feature a weekend marathon of "Murder By The Book", "Murder Mysteries", "Anatomy of a Murder", etc...

Heck, I grew up with "Columbo", "Cannon", and "Barnaby Jones"!

Dogs Die in San Antonio Sheriff’s Department ‘Mishap’

Let me understand this.  You are an officer of the law entrusted to handle a dog as part of your K9 duties.  You reside in a part of the country known to unrelenting heat and humidity during the summer season.  But for some unexplained reason, common sense values vacated your brain long enough for not one, but two dogs perishing inside your patrol vehicle.

Greatest Unknown Holiday of the Year Arrives Tomorrow

Usually I don't get so emotional that tears free flow from my eyes, but there are those solemn events in one's life that necessitate a good cry, and for me, there is no better day -- than tomorrow.

Please share your love with me when I tell you that this "holiday" is so extra special, that I'm planning a personal celebration here at the radio station.  No R.S.V.P. required.  You are all invited to attend and become my special guests, so long as you bring your own food & drink (no alcohol please - at least not during business hours).

Better bring your own folding chair too; and a napkin just in case you spill.

Just one requirement though before entering the building, and that is you must come in costume as your favorite Classic Rocker.  No prizes will be handed out, but if we can't figure out "who you are", we will laugh at you uncontrollably.
