I went to Lambert’s for a work dinner tonight and now that I’m home I realize how much everything (including my hair) smells like smoke or smoked meats or some combination. 😠 And all I ordered was the pulled pork. Sorry Austin, barbecue is lost on me.

I get that every news site isn’t always optimized for SEO, but I put a little bit more responsibility on Google News to surface better results than this, especially when google auto completes the score when you search for it

Is it just me or have Facebook ads become garbage recently? I've been hiding two a day as irrelevant. Pretty low quality too.
