Black Friday: Update

In Random Ramblings by Daniel M. Clark1 Comment

Not only did I not participate in the insanity, I slept until noon. Haven’t done that in years. Felt good.

So, I’m watching TV tonight and a commercial for JCPenny comes on.

Don’t get me wrong, Alton is the …

Earlier this year I wrote a little piece about fortune cookies. Go ahead and read that. I’ll wait. Back so soon? Okay, well, my daughter and I had lunch today at Chow’s Asian Bistro at the Cottonwood Mall here in Albuquerque. I know, I shouldn’t be surprised at anything that comes out of a mall restaurant, but cut me some …

A Van Halen tour with David Lee Roth as lead singer was announced last month and I can sum up my feelings about it thusly: *yawn* Does anyone still care about this band? To my mind, they’ve squandered any goodwill they might have once had with the public, and the attention they’ve been getting from the media over the past …
