Kelloggs, 'The Greatest Name In Cereals', presents: The Adventures of Superbowl. Faster than a speeding brown bullet! More powerful than a macerator! Able to leap tall black tanks in a single bound! ("Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's Superbowl!")... Yes, it's Superbowl ... strange visitor from another planet, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal toilets! Superbowl ... who can change the course of mighty rivers of black water, bend toilet paper in its bare bowl, and who, disguised as a toilet, mild-mannered flusher for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way! And now, another exciting episode, in The Adventures of Superbowl!

I'm with you three. Got rid of the cable and the digital antenna's lousy reception makes for a lot of stop-action replay...

Yeah...anymore you can just hit up youtube and watch them all ahead of time, and just skip the whole thing all together.

S-Bowl commercials . . man, that is really 1970's (my Dad was in advertising and cued us in to the whole sports TV / ad relationship way back when it exploded). There's a reason they call it programming, kids.

Yep... take a kid away from a TV for a few weeks and then sit them back in front of it. Suddenly you hear about all the stuff they just HAVE to have!

State Wide Emergency

The past few days have been a little cold here but from listening to the news you would think the second ice age was coming. The reports were all about how all the shelters were taking in anyone to escape the cold and how residents should take extra precautions due to the "extreme weather". I found it somewhat humorous listening to all the commotion about a little bit of cold.
Of course they were blaming the cold on Canada.
That being said I haven't really been enjoying it too much either.
This morning while I was checking the weather network both for the forecast here and at home I found this picture.

After seeing that I feel much better about a little bit of cool weather.

Define "cold" - in my book, anything above zero F tain't cold.

I am jealous of the snow picture though, and no, I do not own a snowmobile.

Hey MC. well is got down to 34F on Sat night and struggled to reach 50F on Sunday. We were out sightseeing then and the wind was very strong. We actually had to wear our CDN. coats that day.
Normal services have been resumed though, it hit 81F this afternoon. Back to shorts and a tee shirt again so it's all good.
The snow picture was from my home town and I'm not jealous of it all.

Here in North Texas, anytime there's a chance the temperature might dip below freezing people can talk of nothing else. If that's combined with any real chance of precipitation, the stores are all stripped of bottled water and flashlight batteries and people cower in their homes like they saw the Four Horsemen. I was born and raised in Texas, but I've lived in a few places that had 4 genuine seasons so I don't worry too much about Texas "winter" but I find that the infrastructure isn't really designed for it. We have aerial utilities in my neighborhood, for example, and a couple of years ago a heavy (for Texas) snowfall downed so many powerlines we were in the dark for a couple of days.

Even in Denver, when snow is coming, the TV anchors got beserko and shake in fear of "black ice" and snow. I don't know whether they all come from Texas or southern California, or it is just the usual local news fear approach (we cover all the biggest fires, auto accidents and assaults, then 10 minutes of Broncos, Broncos, Broncos, or maybe 20 minutes of Broncos). It got so bad when we lived on the Front Range we ignored what they had to say and got in our 4WD truck and went to work.

You should see tornado season in Oklahoma City. I've never seen weather coverage that comprehensive.. and more than once was thankful for it!

I have to say that it is still a little foreign to me. I'm used to spending 5 minutes donning winter apparel every time I venture outside. Although I am getting used to it and could really grow to like it.
