Photo: Zaxby's Before Haircut

I usually get my mother to cut my hair (since Daisy is short and I can't see the back of my head) and we went over there the other day to do so. We figured it'd be a better idea to go out to eat before we did that. We went to Zaxby's which we haven't been in almost a year for some odd reason. The only thing I dislike about the place is that it does take awhile to get your food. Daisy for example got hers first. 

Story: Marriage Riddle

 I heard this one on a reality show many moons ago, and I've seen it again recently but in a much simpler form. I think the simpler one is too easy, so here's more of the version I heard but with my own wording. This year in the state of Virginia, a Protestant man publicly marries two Protestant women on a Saturday, making it no secret to the local community of his hometown. He is not confronted ever by the authorities for charges on polygamy, how can this be? 

Fact of the Day: King Francis I Death

King Francis I of France died on his son's 28th birthday, strangely after complaining about the weight of his own crown which he had originally considered a gift from God. His son took the throne as Henry II.

My wife found this little mask while looking at Valentines Day stuff. Seems rather more Christmas but it was cute.  

42 (2013 Film) Review

I've heard about 42 for a few years now. I don't know why I waited a few years to see this one. I guess it might have been that I saw Moneyball around the same time at home, and I suppose I wasn't in the mood for another baseball story at the moment. The film is about Jackie Robinson, who in 1947 joined the Brooklyn Dodgers and broke the racist color barrier that kept African-Americans in separate (but certainly not equal) leagues. While there is a large amount of diversity in the MLB today, it seems crazy that this was ever a controversial issue. But Jackie Robinson made a lot of enemies simply because the color of his skin, but he paved the way for justice not only in baseball but in all fields of the American life.
