The Scone Report: Here are a few tidbits I found amusing this week.
There is a fashion trend that has swept Mexico. Described as "half-Aladdin, all Vegas" these very long (some up to 5 feet!), pointy cowboy boots are sexy if not anything else. Seen mostly in clubs and disco's, no one quite knows where they originated from but those without them are realizing it's hard to find a dance partner in their "short" cowboy boots. At $34 per pair they are bought and decorated with glitter, sequins, butterflies, lights or whatever else you can imagine. Although at that price point, the boots are not accessible to everyone and some quick thinking youngsters have taken to making their own out of garden hoses. Move over, Uggs, there is a new boot to hate!

I'm a Bit of a Foodie
AOL published an article on the "Best and Worst Veggie Burgers for Grilling". They graded the veggie burgers on the following: taste/flavor, texture, aroma, and burger-likeness. I also ran my own test and here are my results.

Doodle of the Year!
Today Google named the winner of their "Doodle 4 Google" contest. Out of 107,000 entries, it was Mateo Lopez, age 7, whose drawing took the top spot and is now on display on Googles' home page.
Although Lopez was up against some stiff competition, he did not encounter the artistic talent of a younger me (age 7).

Its All in the Details!
As soon as I get around to publishing my coffee table book on mailboxes in Los Angeles, this one will be on the cover.
