|I'm mixed up. What happened to the Mixology feature that ran in the Metro? Gwenda, I need help. What are some good drinks to serve at Christmas parties? Thanks, - Mac in GR |
ED NOTE: It's still there. It's now called "Gwenda With A Twist". Without going to the professional (Gwenda) let me just give you 2 quick drinks that my parents served at their swank Christmas parties in the luxurious confines of the star laden McCarty basement. Just remember... for a successful party... serve H&H. (Highballs & Hamms)
Dear Editor, 18 million miles!? I am no math whiz, but the question about doubling a 0.001 inch piece of paper 50 times can't be over a couple of feet. Please, show your work. I think the credibility of The Metro is at stake. Or not. -GR Mac
ED NOTE: I'll put it in terms you can understand. If you taught one person to play the banjo, then you both taught someone else, then the four of you taught someone else, and just kept it going, by the time you got to the 50th person that you taught, there would be over 1 quadrillion people on the planet earth playing Cripple Creek. Then comes the Apocalypse.

A Bible Story Taken Out Of Context
So, after Adam was created, there he was in the Garden of Eden. Of course it wasn't good for him to be all by himself, so the Lord came down to visit. "Adam," He said, "I have a plan to make you much, much happier. I'm going to give you a companion, a helpmate for you, someone who will fulfill your every need and desire. Someone who will be faithful, loving, and obedient. Someone who will make you feel wonderful every day of your life." Adam was stunned. "That sounds incredible." "Well, it is," replied the Lord. "But it doesn't come for free. In fact this is someone so special that it's going to cost and arm and a leg." "That's a pretty high price," said Adam. "What can I get for a rib?"
A Little Fact
October 5 as the date the most people in the U.S. are born. So why October 5? Just a random date? Perhaps, to be born on this date, a baby would most likely have been conceived on New Year's Eve. So, before having that extra glass of champagne, think about October 5th.

|MOVIE BOO BOO?|
The movie "A Christmas Story", was set in the 1940s, however, the red wagons shown in the display in Higbee's corner window at the beginning of the film, bear a Radio Flyer script logo which was designed in 1967.
