Today is buy one, get one free from 6 PM to 8 PM for the frozen yogurt (limit one, excludes XL).
Some morning I wake up knowing what I am going to blog about. Today was one of those days; however, somewhere between my bed and the office, I have managed to forget. The only thing that remains is the title and the thought that I must have had a dream about poker.
Friday In the News: In 2003, Pope John Paul beatified Marco d'Aviano, an Italian friar, more than 300 years after his death. Among the saintly deeds he is credited with is the invention of the cappuccino. With the vast Ottoman Turk army advancing on Vienna in 1683, Marco d'Aviano was sent to the pope to join the outnumbered Christian troops and inspire them to victory. It worked, and when the Turks retreated, they left behind bags of bitter coffee. D'Aviano sweetened the brew with honey and milk, and a saint was born.

Happy Birthday Wishes to John Martin Kruk. Mr. Kruk played baseball for 10 years for the Padres, Phillies and the White Sox. In the 1993 All-Star game, John Kruk provided me with one of my greatest memories of baseball. Randy Johnson pitch him a 98 mph fastball that sailed wildly above his John's head as he hit the deck. After the pitch, John backed all the way to the back of the batter's box for the remainder of his at bat. (I remember watching this game at my church youth camp at HPU.) Want a free small yogurt? Tell us John Kruk's major league baseball career OBP percentage.
Also, if you see Stacey in the store today, make sure to wish her a happy birthday as well.
