Snapshot of the Morning: Today's Eye-opener

I know it's a bit nippy this morning in the Las Vegas valley, but I decided to start my day with a cold drink anyway: 20 ounces of cold-brewed coffee leavened with a splash of half-and-half and 3 packets of raw sugar.

It's cool and smooth, and it delivers just the right amount of kick. Come get one from Grouchy John's Coffee Shop!

And enjoy your Monday.

Last Night's Dreams

Last night's dreams were full of strangeness, with Ray & Rick popping in & out of scenes in various disguises & accents. My wife laughed hysterically each time, even when they appeared as menaces, as when, while trying to exit a phantasmagoric Circus Circus buffet, Ray-as-fake-Elvis rushed up to us, waving a loaded .44 magnum while singing "Love Me Tender"...or when, just as we were enjoying a night-time view of post-apocalyptic Las Vegas from the observation deck of the Stratosphere Tower (which, incidentally, had been converted into the Central Government Building for the fiefdom of Sin City), Rick-as-Evel-Knievel crashed through a window on a motorcycle that he'd jumped from the open cargo hatch of a passing C-130, darting all the security guards & soldiers with an auto-air-pistol and installing himself as the new Mayor of the City, granting me a pardon for all my transgressions and promoting me to majordomo...

Song of the Day: "Let The Day Begin" by The Call

Sure, it's an oldie-but-a-goodie with laughably on-the-nose visuals, but the message and the beat and Michael Been's passionate vocals help me get my head in the right place when I'm rising from my too-little slumber at some pre-dawn hour to drag my carcass back into the fray...

KSNV News 3 is doing a story on the effect of gas prices on mobile food vendors, and they're planning to do a live feed from in front of our shop for their 4pm and 6pm newscasts today!

We would love for someone to record this broadcast to see if we actually get some on-air love!
