I'm surfing a few shopping sites getting a general idea of prices of an item, and stumbled across one site that had $69.99 as the price, but it had a line drawn through the price. It said to see the real price, I have to add it to my cart. Well, OK, I added it. But that wasn't enough to see the price. I then had to log into the site as well. So I logged in. The fantastically low price that it didn't want to show me? $69.97

If you are working for a company that is in the habit of sending out thousands of items daily to the post office, the post office likes to have an accurate weight of what is being sent. So normally, we weigh 10 items (one item is typically too light to get an accurate measure). But then the post office prefers we report that weight accurately. For example, if you have 10 items that weigh a total of 8.5625 pounds, and you tell the post office that the 10 items weigh 85625 pounds, for some strange reason they get a bit cranky. I can't imagine why. I mean, all the numbers are right. What more do they want from me?

There is a bank in Greenfield with a big sign out front that says "CD Specials," but I keep forgetting to go in and see what type of music selection they have.

I keep hearing from co-workers that this is not for families (which I would agree with), and it likely wouldn't work as the only car in a household, but... a brand new car that costs less than $7,000 and gets 84 MPG? You have my attention.

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Your next commuter car could have two seats, three wheels and get 84 miles to the gallon.

Another day, another "Weird Al" Yankovic video. Oh, and his new album, "Mandatory Fun", is available now. Yes, I have my copy.

I had a friend n college who would fill awkward silences by saying, "There is a natural lull in conversation every seven minutes." Not sure where she got that information or of there is any truth to it (we never timed it), but it did a good job of filling the awkward silences.

"Weird Al" Yankovic's new album, "Mandatory Fun", hits stores tomorrow, but the first video release from the album is online now. I hate to criticize my all-time favorite musical artist, but this video and song are really, really tacky.
We are teeming with excitement to announce that Nerdist is premiering “Weird Al” Yankovic’s first music video for his #8videos8days project. Feast your eyes on the video for “Tacky,” a wonderfully warped and wacky version of Pharrell’s hyper-bubbly mega-hit, “Happy.” Featuring guest…

The Hancock County Public Library has a summer reading program for adults, running from May 31 through Aug. 1. I decided to sort my to-read list by length and start reading the shortest ones first (I seem to have picked up quite a few novellas... maybe that's cheating, but I don't think so). I set a goal of reaching 34 books by the end of the program.

I just finished by 34th book today over lunch.

Despite reading 34 books in a bit over a month, I still have over 100 books on my to-read list. I seem to be adding books as fast as I can read them.

Yeah, those StoryBundles are addicting. I've picked up all but four of them.
