Stuff and More Stuff

Going in all sorts of directions today...

**Monster Quest has had all sorts of fun airing its Bigfoot/Sasquatch specials...including a rather silly "Snowbeast" version about Mr. S's doings in Colorado. Unfortunately, instead of dealing with the vast batch of credible reports, we are treated to guys riding horses aimlessly, and buzzing coyotes in helicopters. They also peer into an abandoned mine, notice some leaves blown in and posit that this, of course, is a bona fide Bigfoot cave.

Another installment in the talking kitty episodes...this one's on fish.

Free mayo samples from Kraft!

And if you're living in Colorado, you're probably headed to Taco Bell this afternoon -- our beloved (and before this, losing) Rockies hit 7 runs in last night's game, which means 4 tacos for a buck at the Bell. Provided you order them before 4-6 p.m.

**From the "Strange Details" department: A look at Peter Getty's messy divorce proceedings. Getty, a billionaire, is described as a tad weird because he has "a penchant for knitting!"

And the funniest fight scene ever -- anchorman Ron Burgundy's network anchor fight. Hilarious...especially if you've seen West Side Story, the Magnificent Seven, gladiator movies and spaghetti Westerns. 

 I'd rather be fishing in Alaska, and putzing about with the whales.
