What Do Hog Guts, SRV, and a Red Paper Clip Have in Common?
1. If you haven't heard about the guy who traded a red paper clip for a house, it's worth a few minutes of your time to take a look at his story. As far as I know, it's very real. See http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/
2. Someone sent "Mr Fire" a surprise gift box with a bag of chitterlings in it. I had to Google "chitterlings" to discover what they are. Now that I know, I'm not sure I want to ingest them. See http://www.chitterlings.com/
PS - If you want to send me a gift, please don't send food. Remember, I like nothing better than Amazon gift certificates. I don't need lobsters or chitterlings, though I am grateful for the intention behind the gifts.
PPS - Actually, the subject of gift-giving is worth a comment: When you want to give a gift to someone, find out what they like, not what you like. The other day someone sent me a rare music CD of Stevie Ray Vaughan. That got my attention. The giver did their homework. They discovered I love Stevie Ray Vaughan and went out of their way to impress me. They did.
