Bonehead Tip of the Day: Cell phone talk has gotten out of hand. More people are looking down and pressing buttons that falls into open manholes are on the rise. Bumps on the knees, head and face also have seen a spike thanks to people running into poles, parked cars and more. So, here's a not so boneheaded thing to do. Unless it gets you in trouble, then back away. When encountering a person talking feel free to engage that person in the very conversation they are in. Sure, you hear the one-sided part but that doesn't matter. They are in line in front of you and are chatting away. they cannot expect privacy on that one.
The List: Top TV Show of the Week.

Notes: Football continues its domination this season with only "Dancing With the Stars" and "NCIS" looking to get in the way of the fall season title. "Rudolph" scores big and that has to mean something, so let's try to figure it out. when people are down, times are tough, we tend to go back to what made us happy when growing up. Or head back to those traditions. Well, I tried. "It's a Wonderful Life" is on Saturday and I'm hoping people take time out to tune in. It may, however, hit to close to home for many of us. "The Simpsons" make a nice return to the top 25.
Trivia: After George Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware on Christmas Eve in 1776, a battle did erupt. None of George's troops died. However, the two who died froze to death. Monsoons can be a dry as my mouth on a Saturday morning because it's a wind system, not rain. Moths rely mainly on odors and sounds. So does my uncle. It works well for him. Frogs drink through their skin. Nice trick.
Closer: "It would be like camping with Jesus." From "Raising Hope" on being in a living Nativity Scene.
