I used the [link=(http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml)]Cool Running Couch to 5K program [/link]to ease into a running routine. It only requires you to run 3 days a week to prevent injuries from overdoing it at first. Get good shoes and work into a level of fitness where you can comfor...

Garry James was in the 1983 Gumbo. Guy in blackface with a football helmet on, rope chains, football in one hand, jam box in the other...probably wouldn't fly today. But in that same Gumbo, the confederate flag makes several appearances and there might have been some others in blackface for South S...

I look forward to sitting in a row with parents and a kid. When I tell them that I have young kids too and nothing their kid will do is new to me so don't worry, they are so relieved and thankful. I can put up with the crying/screaming. My blood pressure stays low, the parents are less stressed, and...

I'm not an expert on that side of the metroplex but here are some ideas but I'm sure there are better options. There is a Rainforest Cafe just north of Arlington and Bass Pro has a restaurant that serves decent food.
If you are looking for something to do other than eat, take the vintage train f...

A pledge from one of the traditionally black fraternities was in my DiffEq class and was going through their Hell Week. He carried around a decorated cigar box but never opened it. Late in the week, he passed out in class and was deep asleep. I used my foot to open his cigar box and look inside. The...

When I went to see LSU play USC in the 1980's, we stumbled across the filming of BOTNS on the Pepperdine campus. I remember seeing Howard Cosell, Jennifer O'Neill, and Kim Fields. We stuck around for one event and that was probably one event too many but, looking back, it was cheesy fun. ...

We are currently a Nielsen family. We don't fill out books - each TV has a settop box. When you turn on the tv, you press a specific button for each family member who is watching. The info gets uploaded to Nielsen each morning.
They gave me $100 cash after the install. Twice a year, they send ea...

Wouldn't move there - the Bedico Bums will terrorize you. But, if beer commercials are to be believed, fishing in Bedico Creek is awesome.
Caveat - this is the most recent advice I have regarding Bedico and it's from the mid 1970's. Thing might have changed since then.
