I have eaten at Mellow Mushroom once and thought it was good. My wife loves the restaurant. Well, the chain has a bunch of new fans after this gesture.This is a great story. Not enough of this type of news gets reported.

A shifty character, this manager screens all phone calls and immediately ducks into the rest room when unexpected visitors arrive at the office. Rumors are rampant about his/her checkered past, but they are all moot as Wanted Manager’s career is suddenly terminated by a visit from the U.S. Marshals.

Judith Shulevitz, science editor at The New Republic and a mother of a child who she had at an "advanced maternal age" as doctors refer to it on their charts, has penned this interesting article about the effects of older men and women having children. Here is a pull quote from the article.
"Sociologists have devoted many man-hours to demonstrating that older parents are richer, smarter, and more loving, on the whole, than younger ones. And yet the tragic irony of epigenetics is that the same wised-up, more mature parents have had longer to absorb air-borne pollution, endocrine disruptors, pesticides, and herbicides."
There are many reasons to have children later in life, many of them perceived as advantageous for the parents and their offspring, but according to Shulevitz, there may be more than a few consequences lurking as well.

If someone is your manager you would assume that he/she makes more than you do. Apparently that may not be the case with this next manager. Deadbeat Manager never has any money on him/her and is constantly hitting up anyone in sight for a loan. When no one will pony up, due to Deadbeat Manager going to the well once too often, he/she begins to moan about how pawn shops and payday loan specialists just aren’t as accommodating as they used to be. Give this manager and his/her financial situation the widest possible berth or suffer the consequences.

To "The Greatest." Muhammad Ali or Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. as he was born is 71 years old today. The man who won the world heavyweight championship at 22, floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. He changed the sport of boxing forever.

I feel sorry for this guy. Putting is where the game is won or lost and putting in windy conditions can be extremely difficult. He might want to think about just sliding it up to the basket, taking his stroke and moving on next time.

Considers the best way to keep things creative is to make everyone work outside their comfort zone. Assigns tasks in a challenging yet haphazard manner (i.e., without giving it a lot of thought). Has everyone wondering what is coming next. Keep your seat-belt fastened!

To David Robert Jones, or David Bowie as he is better known. Bowie is one of my favorite all time artists.
Also to Stephen William Hawking, theoretical physicist and cosmologist extraordinaire. Bowie wrote songs about space, Hawking studies and writes about space.
Happy birthday to both of these gentlemen who have influenced the 20th century, each in their own unique way.
