Sound and Flurry

It seems that yesterday was a bit of a bust after all. All that talk about a huge winter storm amounted to not much more that a little sleet and some wonderful snow. It was fun getting to dance outside for a few minutes as the big snowflakes come down in the 4 o'clock hour. I hope that everyone got to enjoy the slightly white landscape on the drive home as it will all be gone in the next few hours.

My girlfriend, who is a saint, was kind enough to brave the cold with me, go to dinner and run a few errands. We ate at Go Fish in Addison which is an excellent restaurant for seafood. It seems that everyone was looking for a reason to go home early last night. (Yes, Sugarless deLite closed at 7.) We heard the good people at Barnes & Noble say that they were shutting down at 9 o'clock. It just seemed like a day that people wanted to either stay in or get home quickly.

Friday Fun Fact: By the time tea was introduced in Europe, it had already been drunk in China for nearly 4,600 years. Tea was first brewed in China around 2700 B.C., when the emperor Shen Nung, a scientist and patron of the arts, ordered all drinking water boiled as a hygienic precaution. When some dried brown leaves fell into his boiling water, the curious emperor drank the infusion as an experiment and found it refreshing. Europeans were not introduced to tea until the early 1600's-around Rembrandt's time.

Happy Birthday Wishes to Allan Stewart Konigsberg, a.k.a. Woody Allen. Mr. Allen is one of the more influential directors of our time. He is well known for his neurotic persona that he created in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Want a free mini (4 oz) yogurt? Give us the name of the jazz instrument that Woody Allen plays.
