Parfait Day! All parfaits are only $2.99 (regularly $3.99) today if you ask for the special.


Green Tip: Here are a couple of natural alternatives for you home.

Moth Repellents: Mothballs contain toxic naphalene or paradichlorobenzene; they should be disposed of only through a licensed hazardous waste handler or a municipal hazardous waste collection program. Avoid buying them in the first place by protecting clothes in closed bags. Also try these aromatic moth repellents: cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, or whole cloves wrapped in cheesecloth.

Weedkillers:

There's no need to resort to commercial herbicides to get rid of weeds awakened by warmer spring weather. Squirt them with lemon juice or vinegar, or scald them with boiling water. (The toughest ones may need two applications.)

Happy Birthday Wishes to Pierce Brendan Brosnan. Mr. Brosnan is well known for his roles as Remington Steele and as James Bond. In the later role, he helped to resurrect the spy movie series. His first Bond film, GoldenEye, grossed over 350 million dollars. It also inspired an N64 game of the same name that cost me the better half of my Sophomore year in college. (Super Bomberman and Warcraft claimed the Freshman year.) In addition to his acting career, he is also a dedicated environmental activist.

Honorable Birthday Mentions: Tracy Gold-American actress, Janet Jackson-singer-song writer/record producer/dancer/actress and not a wardrobe specialist, and Megan Fox-American actress.
