Goofy Danny

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick wants a special legislative session called and here is how Gov. Greg Abbott responded:

“That’s pretty goofy because everybody knows there’s only one person with the authority to call a special session, and that’s the governor.”

What a putdown. The sooner this session is over on Monday, the better.  The last thing we need is more Goofy Danny.

I wake up every morning, turn on the flat screen and watch Channel 2 news.  I especially pay attention to Britta Merwin’s weather forecasts.  Britta put this out today:

“I have tried to write this post so many times and it has become very obvious that there is no easy way to break this news… After 7 wonderful years I will be leaving KPRC2 on June 4th.

It is bittersweet to say goodbye to Houston but I am accepting a job (stay tuned for details) that will allow us to move back east to be by our family. I am excited for my kids to have their aunts and uncles at their games, to be by their grandparents and for their great-grandparents to have the opportunity to hold them often.

Thank you to my amazing team! It has been an honor to work alongside my coworkers who are honestly dear friends. We have gotten through the darkest times like Harvey and celebrated the best of life welcoming our babies and raising our children. Thank you for being my family away from home.

To all of our viewers, thank you for allowing me into your home every morning. It has been my greatest honor and an opportunity that I have held close to my heart.  Houston, a piece of you will always be with  me!”

Aww.  I will certainly miss her.

There is new book out on the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates that says Sen. Bernie Sanders demanded that his hotel room on the road have a king-size bed.  If that’s the promoted excerpts of the new book, it won’t land on my bedstand.  Every time I go online to reserve a room, I try to get a room with a king-size bed.

I saw this story a few days ago on the internet:

In honor of Pride Month 2021, which is June, Kellogg’s and GLAAD have come together to introduce a new cereal. The Together With Pride variety aims to celebrate everyone having a seat at the table and show support to the LGBTQ+ community.

Kellogg’s first partnered with GLAAD in 2019 to create the All Together Cereal. The pride-fueled box was filled with six cereals, including Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Rice Krispies, Frosted Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, and Corn Flakes. You might not have had the chance to try it, however, because it was only available online. This new version has wider accessibility so more people can enjoy it.

The limited-edition Together With Pride cereal looks like Froot Loops, except they’re in the shape of hearts. The colorful pieces are berry-flavored and topped with edible glitter for an extra special touch. You’ll be able to find the cereal at select major retailers nationwide beginning in mid-May, press materials confirmed. The 7.8-ounce box will have a suggested retail price of $3.99.

Commentary doesn’t eat sugary cereal.  Why don’t they do something with raisin bran or shredded wheat?

On the fight at The Yard a couple of nights ago, here is from the Chron:

Those involved were escorted out by MMP security and received citations from HPD for fighting in a public place. KPRC reported that those involved were also banned from MMP for a year.

They got off with a slap to the wrists. 

The Padres are in town for the weekend.  The Padres have the best record in MLB.

I will be spending the Memorial Day weekend with my Dad.  Stay safe everyone.
