… but I have a few fun things for you today.

First, it was a sad drive through Johnson on my way to work this morning.

It never ceases to disappoint me.

Fun link! This mindless fun monopolized several minutes of my day yesterday until I had to force myself to stop — realizing it had the capability to eat up every bit of my productive time and energy. Enjoy.

Fun link #2! I watched Ace of Cakes with Nancy last night and I don’t know that I’ve ever been more impressed and entertained at the same time. The show follows Duff Goldman and his employees at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore. They make cakes in any shape – for any occasion. It is truly amazing. Check out the gallery on their site.

Programming note: I never posted answers to the Super Bowl/Groundhog Day trivia. My apologies. Answers are as follows:

Advertisers paid $42K for spots during the first Super Bowl in 1967.

Advertisers paid $2.6 million in 2007. Even the Snickers Ad…

MVP of Super Bowl XLI was Peyton Manning (duh).

The 8 winning, Hall of Fame quarterbacks of the last 8 Super Bowls played in Miami are: Bart Starr (Super Bowl II - Green Bay Packers), Joe Namath (Super Bowl III – New York Jets), Johnny Unitas (Super Bowl V – Baltimore Colts), Terry Bradshaw (Super Bowl X and XIII – Pittsburgh Steelers), Joe Montana (Super Bowl XXIII – San Francisco 49ers), Steve Young (Super Bowl XXIX – San Francisco 49ers), and John Elway (Super Bowl XXXIII – Denver Broncos).

Punxsutawney Phil, of course, is the groundhog residing in Punxsutawney, PA and Groundhog Day has been a part of US History since 1887.

  1. I agree with Keith.  “Fillet” is good in my book.

  2. Actually, Sarah, that is one of the correct spellings; however, it is not the one most commonly used.

    Also, filet (for defs. 1, 10).

  3. I find it hard to believe that Golden Corral knows they are using an alternate spelling…

  4. Maybe to them it’s not an “alternate” spelling. Maybe to them that’s how you spell it.
