You can bring your dog to Downtown Frederick and pop in pup friendly stores and take part in "Yappy Hour" as well as other fun. Check it out here.

Have you heard of the new phenomenon Texting While Walking (TWW)? Yeah, apparently people are so engrossed in texting that they decide to walk, and they are having serious problems multi tasking. So...we hear people are doing walking into doorways, parking meters, oncoming traffic and more. Read onhere. Scary stuff.
Friday Toy Memory: Again, not a toy...a drink? A powder? A breakfast of astronauts? Whatever it is, it was delish. The neighborhood kids would all get together and eat it without water ...yum, I can taste that sugary orange paste now! Also here's a Tang Tidbit: The creator of Tang, William A. Mitchell, also invented Pop Rocks, Cool Whip, a form of instant-set Jell-O, and other convenience foods?
Marc also reminisced that his grandmother used to make some nasty concoction of Tang and powdered Lipton iced tea. Well of course, people can make anything look fancy. I found thisfancy shmancy blog with that recipe...but they dressed it up with cinnamon sticks and stuff.
We got a little off topic and started talking about the group "Hot Chelle Rae" that sings Tonight, Tonight. It's catchy and we agreed that we both like it. We were wondering how they came up with the name. It seems like it was a food of some sort. Marc decided that he would come up with a dish called Hot Chelle Rae. It would include pasta shells, something spicy (likesriracha) and I suggested cheese...after all, everything is better with cheese.
I digress. Here's what I found out about them and the band name.
