Head colds are not helpful when it comes to standing outside, even when the weather breaks favorably. It is not pleasant for me, nor for the customer hearing the wretched sneezing and nose blowing. Rather than Kleenex, I have brought by a roll of toilet paper for the job.

Non-news was that American Idol Jennifer Hudson sang at her old church. I'm guessing it was one of the swan-song deals when the person grows up in church, learns to sing in church, and then, never really returns to sing the songs of church.
