Raging Storms, Wrecking Balls & Amazing Videos

Last week’s blog was delayed with the storm that hit the Twin Tiers, knocking down trees, power lines and creating havoc.

Businesses are popping up all over. Perkins  recently broke ground in the Mansfield I-99  Business Park.  It will seat 120 persons and employ up to 90 people.

The Hampton Inn will also be coming shortly.  The four-story, 83 room hotel will employ about 15 workers.  Both should be ready for business in early 1012.

“I, as poster boy for soft majors, remain undaunted, unfazed and unslighted.”  For the rest of “Shakespeare’s” response to being played down” in a study, this response in the Chronicle is an entertaining defense of liberal arts and “soft” majors.

Charlie Bit Me is making rounds again.  Posted several years ago, the video has no redeeming value other than being so cute you tend to watch it again.  However, it has collected over 300 million views and I feel compelled to share it as a piece of our pop culture.
