What's Up Today?

Patti sent along the Scotsman Fact of the Day:

A strange little cartoon is aired on the popular ‘Tracey Ullman Show’ today in 1987. It is called ‘The Simpsons’. We believe it may have enjoyed some minor cult success since.

It seems like only yesterday that I was watching Tracey Ullman in my parents’ living room. But it wasn’t; it was 1987.

Today is also Patriot’s Day — the day of the Boston Marathon. The famous marathon starts at 11:30 AM. You can get all the details on the Boston Athletic Association: 108th Boston Marathon Race Day Home Page

If you know someone who is in the race, the site will let you track their progress. I do know someone who is in the race — an ex-coworker and decent guy John Intorcio. He’s bib #7392. Good luck, John!

Your poor friend, running out there in the heat! Well, he finished, and with a pretty good time, too--4:09:39.

Man, that's determination. I toast him for his accomplishment!
