Fun Facts and Stuff
Today, students at JJ Pearce and Trinity Christian Academy can get a free small yogurt by coming in and showing their student ID. (Limit one per student.)
Countdown: After today, there are only 2 days left to order your pies, cheesecakes, or pumpkin breads from Sugarless deLite. Don't forget to give us a call at 972.644.2000. The bakery items will be more expensive if they are ordered after the deadline.
Friday in the News: It could become the new definition of an oxymoron: a Beauty and the Beast marriage of the all-time hands-down favorite snack food to a food that inspires disgust in most of the civilized world. What is this strange concoction from Scotland? Haggis Chips! The Raeside family began turning potato crops into flavored chips in 2004 and business is booming. Other flavors include smoked salmon and sea salt, but haggis is the big seller. (I love my people.-Brought to you by the WWDTM calendar.)
Happy Birthday Wishes to Shigeru Miyamoto. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Miyamoto, you might find yourself familiar with some of his games that he has created: Donkey Kong, Mario, the Legend of Zelda, and Star Fox are just a few. He is often referred to as the "Father of Modern Gaming." His creation of Donkey Kong in the early 1980's solidified Nintendo as a driving force in the booming gaming industry and spawned many future titles. Mr. Miyamoto is currently over seeing the development, production and marketing of the Wii gaming system.
(Honorable Birthday Wishes: Diana Krall-Canadian jazz pianist and singer (one of my favorites), Maggie Gyllenhaal-American actress, Dwight Gooden-Baseball player.)
