Deep Thoughts

A little irony: Last night, while much of America was watching Barack Obama spew his usual statist drivel, I was at the Pepsi Center watching The Who in concert, hearing Roger Daltry sing "Won't Get Fooled Again."

A little stupidity: I ordered some Valentines Day flowers from the web site of 1-800-Flowers. Today I got a message from UPS that the flowers were damaged in transit. (I was going to have them delivered today so they'd be at my house in the morning.) I wanted to call the people I ordered from to discuss options, so I did a Google search for "1800 flowers" to find their phone number. (As if that's not dumb enough, the Google search result was not 1-800-FLOWERS. But at least I was smart enough to dial that anyway.)

    Most people don't know that the drummer for the past few years for the Who is Zak Starkey, Ringo Starr's oldest son. He is excellent.

    Hey, Ross! It's Bob Piccard. That's a pretty funny story. What I've done for years is look in the Yellow Pages for florists in the town where I want to send flowers. So it adds a couple of bucks to the cost, but I talk to a human being without any of that "Press one for English" crap and when I decided I wanted to change my order and called again the next day, the woman acted like we were old friends.
