it's been a sad week
They say things always happen in threes this week has proven this to be true. We have lost three great people this week. First there was the inventor of the "Magic Fingers Vibrating Bed" John Joseph Houghtaling. Then we lost Ed McMahan the announcer of the tonight show with Johnny Carson. Now we have lost Farrah Fawcett one of the first original "Charlie's Angels" the television series. They shall all be remembered for the influence they have had on our lives. They will all be remembered and missed greatly. Amongst all this grief there is yet another almost tragedy that has had a serious impact on some people. A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of beer overturned in Vermont and closed a highway for several hours. The truck went off the road Monday on Route 78. It rolled over and landed in a swamp on a wildlife refuge. Now before you all cry over spilled beer here's the good news. No beer spilled into the swamp. Keep your heads up the sun will shine tomorrow until then have a drink in memory of these people who have influenced our lives. But you may not want to drink in swampy areas.
