Everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it. Was that Shakespeare? Or Willard Scott? Well, I AM gonna do something about it. Not exactly sure what that is, however. I am familiar with some very effective rain dances, but what we need here is a sun dance.

Just read in the Tribune today that Walgreens will start selling a DNA Genetic test so we can discover all those hidden secrets within our genetic code.
