I have blogged before that I think the Secret Service should have a vow of celibacy as a requirement for employment. It has not happened. Now I think the Secret Services needs a vow of sobriety. (Click to tweet.) Before you think that is ridiculous, it is my understanding that the soldiers that guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers take a vow of sobriety – for life.
Senator Mitch #McConnell’s campaign staff pulled an online video that featured a clip of #Duke basketball players celebrating their 2010 national championship. Duke is, of course, in #North Carolina and a big rival of Kentucky. It’s easy to make that mistake. McConnell’s campaign staff obviously thought that “Duke” is a title much like “Colonel.” The Kentucky Dukes?
It seems that art, especially painting, is now a trend in some bars. In #Philadelphia, pubs are hosting Paint Nite. Customers drink and follow an instructor step-by-step in painting landscape or other scenes. They call it "social painting" and it is rapidly growing in popularity. I remember a scene in the movie Sister Act where the nuns go to a bikers’ bar. One biker says to another, “If this turns into a nuns’ bar I am out of here.” Oh well.
I am going to try that at my house. I will offer drinks and snacks. Guests can have a drink, a paintbrush and any wall. No pictures please – just one color of paint.
