Crawfish Disaster?

Seems that Michigan is having a problem with Louisiana crawfish. I'm a little surprised that they can survive up there given the ground freezing. Instead of spending money to eradicate them, they should grant fishing licenses for Cajuns to trap them.

Head Count

Saudi Arabia played catch up after Ramadan and beheaded 23 men. This jumps their year to date total to 76, the number of trombones that lead the big parade.

In other execution news, Japan hung the leader and 12 members of Aum Shinrinkyo, the cult that did the sarin attack on the subway.

Lip-Sync Bragging

You may have heard about the lip-sync challenge that's going around. The Gretna Police Department got my son, who has an advertising agency, to write and produce their video. He had a ball doing it and got to play with the SWAT vehicle. Here's a link:

The Balvenie 21 Year Old Portwood

When family asks me what I want for Father's Day or Birthdays, I say "Scotch". This has allowed me to build a nice collection of some pricey whiskeys. One of them was this one. This scotch is old enough to vote so I didn't feel like I was robbing the cradle.

Palate: Very smooth
Nose: Flowers, nuts
Color: amber
Finish: Mild and warm

For other Balvenie reviews go here.

Mailer Daemon Movie

My nephew has written and directed a short film about the guy that returns your emails to you. It was filmed at his dad's house. They built the set in his garage and scrounged props from the family to set up the office. They used some of the crew from NCIS New Orleans while the show was on hiatus. This is a short about the behind the scenes action.
