well when i came home i changed shoes and went through my mail from today and yesterday and threw out the real junk mail and kept the bills and one zero percent interest rate for a little more than a year credit card offer then left to go see my parents for dinner and to bake a cake with my mom i hadnt baked a cake since high school and i wanted to learn how to again and to bake a rum cake like my mother always made for my birthday it isnt a rum cake like some people know of but like a yellow sponge cake with rum flavoring and rum icing that is like milk and powdered or confectioners sugar only instead of milk you use rum and it tastes so good i would always ask for it for my birthday because on your birthday you could have whatever cake you wanted even if it was a rum cake and your sister couldnt stand it you could have it anyway only my car died in front of a church

so this young guy let me use his cell phone and i called my autoclub and i was on hold for forever and twenty minutes but they sent somebody and the somebody got there just before the church service for the graduates in blue robes got out becuase my car died just as they were going in and i got towed to the garage well not towed really becuase it was a rolloff truck and it rolled on then rolled off the rolloff and it was taken to the garage and i got out and the car rolled off the rolloff and they drove away there wasnt even anything for me to sign and i had a fortyfive minute walk home and i wish i hadnt changed my shoes

Wired 14.06: Don’t Try This at Home

Garage chemistry used to be a rite of passage for geeky kids. But in their search for terrorist cells and meth labs, authorities are making a federal case out of DIY science.

So much for the (al)Chemical Wedding.

The Times-Tribune – Robbery suspect doesn’t get far

[Scooter’s Hot Dawg Hut]’s owner, Bob Bolus, who was working in the outdoor barbecue pit, saw the man run out of the store. He hopped in his sport utility vehicle and pursued Mr. Leonetti toward the nearby Days Inn, 1226 O’Neill Highway, trapping him inside the motel parking lot, police said.

“I was showing one of the (employees) how to rake the charcoal in the barbecue pit, and all of a sudden I heard a girl scream, ‘We’ve been robbed,’ and the guy was running across the parking lot toward a white car,” Mr. Bolus recalled. “I told an employee to call the cops, and then I went after him.”

After realizing there was no way out, Mr. Leonetti rammed his car into Mr. Bolus’ SUV twice, according to court papers.

Mr. Leonetti then fled on foot. Dunmore police apprehended him a short time later. The car Mr. Leonetti was driving had been reported stolen in Lake Ariel, police said.

Mr. Bolus suffered minor injuries in the crash, according to police.

Bob Bolus’ name appears in the strangest places.
