From another generation.....I miss the days when stand-up comedy was done by a professional like Bob Hope and the Dean Martin Roasts were actually funny.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

After 108 years, the Boy Scouts program is set to drop the gender from its name and re-emerge as "Scouts BSA," a more "inclusive" group that will also soon welcome girls in its ranks.

Boy Scouts of America, the parent organization of the Boy Scouts program, made the announcement Wednesday. Though the decision to toss "Boy" aside was considered controversial by some, Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said the new name came about after an "incredibly fun" deliberation.

The Girl Scouts said their organization was blindsided by the move and are planning an aggressive campaign to ramp up recruitment numbers

When I was little I broke my ankle jumping over a septic tank. A few years back I blew out my knee while cleaning salamander poop. This morning I broke and dislocated my toe by stepping on a laundry basket.

When it comes to embarrassing-yet-serious injuries, I am a freaking Triple Crown winner.

I shouldn't laugh because I just had a fever for two straight days after one workout, but man, you have bad luck.

So I go into a popular SoCal restaurant, StoneFire, that does quite the take-out business for the their BBQ stuff. Upon checking out, the bill was $84 and I pulled out my trusty AmEx card and lo and behold when given the receipt to sign there was no place to add in a tip. I know that there's plenty of work that goes into getting a to-go order prepared and I certainly don't object to tipping, but I had to explain that since the advent of on-line wagering I simply have little reason to carry any cash. I did notice some large fishbowls on the counter filled with various denominations of currency but quite frankly I was pretty darn embarrassed. My waitress said it was a management decision to program the computers in such a way that no tips be made on credit cards. For the life of me I can't figure out the reason why?

But their food is easy to recommend and don't forget the carrot cake!

Ugh, I just got over a nasty sore throat and now I seem to have a stomach bug.

What's next???

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Miss America Organization is dropping the swimsuit competition from its nationally televised broadcast, saying it will no longer judge contestants on their appearance.

I don't know. Maybe women being hired based on their abilities and not on their looks, and paid the same as men in the same job? :P
