I love March 4th because today is National Pancake Day !!! To celebrate this joyous occasion, The International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is giving out a free stack of pancakes to every customer! The company has been doing this since 2006 and the promotion runs from 7:00am till 10:00pm today! IHOP will ask all customers to make a donation to charity and they have raised over $13-million with the majority of the donations going to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
Here we go again … just what the world needs … another political war! This time it’s Russia -v- Crimea, a peninsula in Ukraine. The United States and Western leaders have warned Russia to withdraw their troops but the situation is tense. We all know that under President Vladimir Putin, Russia thinks it’s unstoppable and he is doing everything he can to bring back the USSR empire. The world will not this egomaniac march through a country and take over. Let’s hope things can be worked out diplomatically and a full-out war is prevented.
Did you know there are 3.34 plastic surgeons per 100,000 residents in Tampa Bay? That ranks our area ninth nationwide according to a website named RealSelf. Two other Florida cities finished in the Top ten with Miami second and Jacksonville finishing fourth. The shocking fact is that Salt Lake City was the top ranked city! Wow … I didn’t know that many people had makeovers and boob jobs in Utah!
Boston’s St.Patrick’s Day Parade is the second-largest in the country (after New York City). This year you just might see something different in the streets of Boston as the gay advocacy group MassEquality is fighting to march in the event. The group has been banned the past two decades but meeting with Boston Mayor Martin Walsh are very optimistic. Come on Boston …. get into the 21st century and let all groups celebrate!
Last but not least … The EPA in Alaska is blocking a giant open-pit copper mine development citing risks to water quality and spawning salmon …The Academy Awards screwed up Sunday Night by not listing actor Dennis Farina and comedy legend Jonathan Winters in their “In Memoriam” portion of the telecast … The Twitter photo that Ellen DeGeneres posted was up to a record 2.8-million retweets at last look … Actor/comedian George Lopez got so wasted last weekend after one of his shows he passed out on a casino floor in Windsor. Nice job George, that showed a lot of class!
Have a great day everybody!
