We had a visit this weekend from the local sales rep from QubicaAMF. This is the company that makes our bowling lanes. I told him about a couple maintenance issues we're having, and he's going to help us get them fixed.

This is good, since the main "expert" Qubica has is in Virginia.


A Maryland high court has determined that a man cannot divorce his wife simply by saying "I divorce thee" three times.

It seems the wife had filed for divorce and the husband tried to invoke talaq, where the man ends the marriage by saying "I divorce thee" three times. Talaq is the law in some countries where Islamic law in enforced. Of course, under talaq the woman doesn't receive any of the marital property...and this estate was worth $2 million.

Ya think he was trying to get out of giving up any of that?


NBC used some misleading footage about global warming. In a report about the Arctic ice breaking up, there's a shot of two penguins frolicking on an ice floe.

Slight problem - penguins are in the Antarctic. Wrong end of the world.



Once again, a Fark headline tells you all you need to know about a story:

Britney Spears has been giving pregnant little sis Jamie Lynn advice on motherhood. What could possibly go wrong?


Time has a list of the five mistakes Hillary made during her run for the presidency.

Lying about her experiences and being arrogant ("It WILL be me") didn't make the list.


Okay. Day off, and some things to do.

Tonight I'll kick back, but for now... seeing you.
