Funny how some things reserve a place in your memory. I still remember in the early 70’s, when the Washington Post editorialized against the month of February. They denounced it as pestilence followed by disease. I concur.
In Texas, trees are already in bud. In Minnesota, our friends and neighbors were hunkered against below freezing temps for 27 days. I cannot imagine such.
Breaking news: word just in from Paris. It’s officially OK to drink red wine with oysters on the half shell. Screw-tops permissible. But not boxed.
Car deals. Consumers prefer to kick the tires in person. Today, direct sales of new cars over the Internet are expected to grow from 100,000 in 2007 to 300,000 in 2012. That’s not a big jump and represents only 1.7 percent of all new cars sold. But, if you are like me, you spend time on-line looking at Craigs List, CarFax, CarSoup, NADA, etc. before you buy your next vehicle, be it new or used.
