SEARCH YOUR KIDS WITH DOGS?

 

We saw this piece about the non-profit group

“Dogs Findging Drugs”, where you can rent drug-

sniffing dogs to worried parents…some say it brseaks

down trust—others want to know what they’re doing.

The dogs get in there and sniff out the goods…..

Was a good phoner for us….apparently parents

are clamoring for the service.

 

 

TELEGRAMS….

 

A little reminiscing about telegrams…since you can

now get ‘em again for 6 bucks a pop……at telegramstop.com…..

 

We got into how they were read and the word stop would be at the

end of every sentence……found out that they would charge extra

for punctuation so that’s how people chose to end each line instead

of paying extra…..

 

Also brought up the singing telegrams….lotsa memories of those

things on the yellow paper…..

 

 

MORE IPHONE TROUBLE………

 

You just gotta know that the iphone 5 is gonna be THEE most tested

product  ever…..what with all the issues that have popped up…….

 

I have a friend who’s jonesin’ for the white one….does that even make

sense? Don’t people who buy white everyday items know that eventually

their nasty hands will scuff it all up….especially an iphone………

 

Who owns a white car that is driven crazy by the fact that, unless you’re coming

out of the car wash, it always looks dirty?

 

 

HALLOWEEN AT SAM’S CLUB…..

 

Isn’t shopping at a Sam’s Club or a Costco or BJ’s an eye-opening experience?

 

You just see the weirdest stuff there……decorations for various holidays that you

NEVER see anywhere else…….just amazing. The best thing this year was these

2 rubberized heads like the one at Disney’s Haunted Mansion that communicate with each other ….kinda like a spooky Furby…….one talks and the program alerts the other

head and that head answers…..costs like 92 dollars but freakin’ cool……..

 

Any cool Halloween thing that you’ve seen for sale? Kids today have it so cool…

Our decorations were a pumpkin and maybe a paper skeleton…..(snooze)

 

 

ONE MORE THING….

 

Try this app….it’s free. It’s called Balabolka…….you open up a doc file

and a computer reads it to you and even records a wav file of that reading…..

that you can play on air….we used it to give away tix to Beatlemania and

did Beatle lyrics……

Sometimes it doesn’t read words properly……like instead of “Oh”, it read “o-h”….

which made it funnier……we called it “The Vocal Computer”…..and it can be

very funny!

 

 

RIC AND THE CREW SAY—HAVE A GREAT WEEK, STARZ!
