March Madness is upon us, and it’s that time of year that many of us lent (except for this weekend) and some of our minds go to the mystical. Just about a hundred miles from WWE headquarters (and the US HQ for Guinness), you will find two Casinos and a little town called Mystic Connecticut. The town is know for a lobster place called Abbot’s that sells the best lobster rolls with huge chunks of lobster (don’t forget the butter and lemon). Down a few streets from Abbots you will find a pizza joint called Mystic pizza, made famous in the Julia Roberts movie, where you can grab a slice. While people trek to Mystic for its seafood, pizza and proximity to the casinos, Mystic is also famous for its witches and warlocks. I had the pleasure of meeting a TK-short for telekinetic while in the great state. She could move books without touching them. It was really cool. Maybe you’ll run into one of these along with the spiritual Catholics this St. Patrick’s day. They might just touch your heart.

During my last go round, I blasted Pepsi for sourcing its oranges from Brazil. Now, a few years later, I realize that with this sourcing Tropicana was able to innovate. Tropicana now offers Low Acid orange juice that tastes great but without all the acid. Pick some up on sale this week at your favorite store. It doesn’t hurt that Pepsi was a Die Hard pump.

I think that the adult diaper industry is missing the boat with marketing to NASCAR drivers. I know none of them admit it, but the drivers have to be wearing diapers. How can they trek 500 miles without going? I know I’m not alone in this assumption just Google Danica Patrick and diapers. Maybe they are all taking Vesicare LOL.
Laugh out Loud
Sometime on Saturday Night you can’t sleep so you tune in to Saturday Night Live. SNL pokes fun at everybody and everything. Who can forget great skits like Buckwheat sings or “XXXX” in a box, or the infamous Drunk Uncle. So tune in on Saturday night, or program that DVR and be a fan for life and laugh out loud.
Don’t Stop The Party
