Now its time for the show to start & I think we'll start now!!!!
There are two possible outcomes: If the result confirms the hypothesis, then
you've made a measurement. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then
you've made a discovery. --Enrico Fermi

FOLK MUSIC SCHOLAR ALAN LOMAX DIES
Musicologist Alan Lomax, whose
national radio show intro- duced the music of legends like Woody Guthrie,
Leadbelly, Aunt Molly Jackson and Pete Seeger, died last Friday at age 87.
He and his father, John Avery Lomax, set up the Archive of Folksong at the
Library of Congress, and wrote and published important folksong collections
such as Cowboy Songs and American Ballads and Folksongs. Lomax also
recorded Muddy Waters during a field trip to Mississippi in 1942. Funeral
services for Lomax are sche- duled for Tuesday in Tarpon Springs, Fla., and
plans for a New York memorial service will be announced later.

Bonehead award one,
from a story sent to me by reader Soltani Abbas, goes to a Toronto man who
was pulled over by Toronto police for erratic driving and who was found to be
driving barefoot with his feet wrapped in banana peels. He claimed that this
would cure his bunions. Police also said a big bloodhound was licking his ear
while he was driving.
award two goes to a Bethlehem, Pennsylvania couple. A woman' s boyfriend
shot her in the back with a 12-gauge shotgun to test out the bulletproof vest
that she was wearing, according to police. She was treated for a broken rib
and cuts. He was arrested.

If you want to repel gnats and mosquitoes and don't want to use anything with
chemicals, mix one tabelspoon of vanilla extract to one cup of water. Apply
to the exposed skin with a cotton ball. This is safe for everyone including
babies, unless of course you are allergic to vanilla, in that case a
mosquito bite might be the lesser of two evils...
Cover the bottom of the ashtray with baking soda. This will
neutralize the odor and help put out the cigarette quicker...

HAMBURGER RECALL INCREASES The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the recent
recall of possibly contaminated hamburger has been expanded to 19 million
pounds of the product. So far health experts in Colorado, where most of the
concern over the product has been voiced, report some 17 people have been
sickened with E. coli-caused infections. The beef was processed by
the huge ConAgra plant in Greeley, Colo., and was distributed to many
states. The contaminated product has the code "EST. 969" on it, located
within the USDA inspection seal. Meanwhile, consumers, particularly those who
do a lot of outdoor grilling, are being reminded that hamburger
should reach a temperature of at least 160 degrees to kill any bacteria.
A cheap meat thermometer could be a good investment.
NASA CONTINUING TO WORK ON SHUTTLES Engineers with NASA say they are still
trying to figure out what has caused some hairline cracks in space shuttle
fuel lines and whether major repairs are necessary. In a statement to
media, NASA's directors noted the entire shuttle fleet has been grounded
while experts make a thorough examination of important hydrogen lines.
Although the cracks are very small, less than the width of a lead pencil,
questions remain: "How did they get there and what, if anything, should be
done?" Some experts say the real concern is not that the cracks could cause
any major problems, but what if one should quickly expand? That could lead
to a Challenger-type disaster. Meanwhile, it appears it may be a couple of
months before the shuttles can fly again, if a quick decision on the
enigmatic cracks can be made.

DIXIE CHICKS TO JAM WITH JAMES TAYLOR
The Dixie Chicks are back on the
schedule for a Country Music Television Crossroads special, but will be
tune- swapping with James Taylor instead of the Dave Mathews Band. Taping
will take place in Nashville on July 31 be- fore an invitation-only audience
and the cable network plans to air the show in October. The Dave Mathews
Band cited a scheduling conflict when it pulled out of the previous CMT
Crossroads date with the Chicks, whose "Long Time Gone" currently is rated
No. 7 on Billboard's country singles chart. Their latest album, "Home,"
is slated for release Aug. 27, and Taylor's "October Road," is due out
Many fruits and vegetables found in supermarkets today
look ripe, but are hard as a rock. Soften them up by placing them in a
brown paper bag and hiding the bag away in a dark cabinet for a day or two.
This is great for items such as avacados, kiwi fruit, peaches, nectarines,
and more. Once ripe, refrigerate the produce to preserve
Never refrigerate a tomato that is not fully ripe.
Most tomatoes sold in stores are still ripening, and would benefit from a
few days on the counter. Cold temperatures alter the fruit's flavor and stop
the ripening process. Once ripe, a tomato can be refrigerated for several
days. To ripen a tomato fast, put it with an apple in a perforated bag.
Now That's What I Call Road Rage -------------
MINNESOTA - Gregory Peter
Carr was annoyed by speeding vehicles and heavy traffic in front of his
home, by County Roads 29 and 164 in Minnesota. So he took matters into
his own hands. Armed with a 12-gauge shotgun and approximately 14 rounds
of ammunition, Carr aimed at vehicles passing in front of his house and
several were hit by his six shotgun blasts. There were no injuries, but the
road rager immedi- ately went into hiding. Police found Carr in a nearby
soybean field and he remains in jail until his first court appearance.
He told authorities that all he wanted was the drivers to simply slow down
and take alternate routes.
PARKAY MARGARINE GOING HIGH TECH Remember the TV commercials where a package
of Parkay Margarine keeps spouting the word "Butter!" every time someone
samples some of the product? The advertisement's wording was as incessant as
the current raft of Aflack spots or the exploits of the battery bunny. Now,
according to the St. Petersburg Times, the company has started a giveaway
contest in which some tubs of the popular butter substitute actually do talk
when the lids are removed. Using the same technology in talking greeting
cards, the high-tech tubs of Parkay actually say "Butter!" when opened.
Some 15,000 talking tubs have been shipped to grocers. People who find the
chattering tubs will win prizes. Kraft has been using the "talking tubs"
concept for nearly 30 years.
NEW NATIONAL BYWAY ADDED Old U.S. Highway 40 across Ohio is now a National
Byway. Working with national preservation groups, the stretch of road,
much of it still the original two-lane (in some sections in eastern Ohio a
strange three-lane highway), the roadway has been declared a "national
shrine." Before its designation as U.S. 40, the old National Road carried
pioneers from the Washington and Baltimore areas to the west. Its original
terminus was Vandalia, Ill. Ironically, the city of Vandalia, Ohio -- just
north of Dayton and home to that city's international airport -- was
formed by people who thought they were headed for the other Vandalia and
were dropped off there by con artists. Before heading west, many were told
if they paid the price they would be taken to Vandalia (Illinois). So, when
the wagons arrived in Vandalia, Ohio (some 150 miles shy of their
intended destination) they were told: "Get out. You're here!" Hundreds, not
having the money left to go farther, became the original citizens of the Ohio
city. Other cities along the way, including the quaint towns of Zanesville
-- home of the historic "Y" bridge -- and Concord -- John Glenn's hometown --
are adding museums and special exhibits to celebrate the "rebirth" of the
highway. For more information, not only the Ohio section, but the entire
National Road, check out route40.net on the Internet.
