War hero dog has his day

Rufus, a hero dog who saved 50 GIs from a suicide bomber in Afghanistan, was honored by the Animal Medical Center last night at a charity event at the American Museum of Natural History.

Some 500 guests hailed Rufus at a cocktail reception and dinner during the 100-year-old center's Centennial Top Dog Gala.

The annual event honors service dogs who go beyond the call of duty.

Sadly life didn't turn out so good for Rufus's companions. I challenge anyone to find a story of a cat that saved 50 soldier's lives....anywhere in any century. Man's and soldier's best friend.

Dogs > cats always.

The Answer: How to Wear Plaid

From that hard hitting newspaper, The Wall Street Journal
Q: You’ve seen a lot of plaid around lately and you like what you see. But is this rough blue-collar material ready to be dressed up for a Friday night on the town? Or the office?

A: The fabric pattern known as plaid comes in many variations — with tonal combinations ranging from two shades of grey to yellow and lime green — so to find one for almost any occasion is likely possible. Just keep in mind that not all plaids are created equal.
The word comes from Gaelic, the Celtic language of Scotland: A plaide is a woolen blanket with a checked pattern. That pattern — now known as tartan in the U.K. — has traditionally been associated with warming, wintry fabrics and a thick woolen weave that makes it both durable and amenable to the outdoors. First popularized in North America by lumberjacks in Canada, plaid was later applied to all sorts of fabrics and became standard outdoor attire. Whenever man — or woman — was outside, plaid was suitable.

And for the record, there is nothing wrong with looking like a lumberjack...
I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay...

And I can assure you most men will attest that not enough plaid is being worn.

Woman crashes car while trying to answer phone

A Kelleys Island woman visiting the mainland on Monday crashed her car into the Kelleys Island Ferry boat building, Marblehead police said.

Antoinette Mullins, 69, suffered lacerations to her face and was taken by ambulance to Magruder Hospital.

I watched a similarly aged woman sit at a traffic light on Saturday. The traffic light had changed to blinking red (treat it like a stop sign) and she was chatting away on her phone. Meanwhile the cars were piling up behind her and honking. Did she hear, she was on the phone.

I know I'm gonna get some hate mail for this one....

And the poster child for women drivers and the number one hit on Google for the search...
