I'm Apparently Closer To Death Than I Know - 08/11/14

  We're all going to die.  I know that.  I wasn't thinking about much, however, until I got a letter from one of the funeral homes and cemeteries near my house.  I'm nearly 50 and it apparently time to make my arrangements.  These thoughtful folks have offered to send me a "final wish organizer" absolutely free. 
  I'm not really offended.  Getting that letter suggesting this is the time to think about how I'd like to handle my funeral just caught me flatfooted.  I had no idea funeral homes offered catering services.  I say let's have one last gathering, a minimum of tears and a maximum of remembering the good times we shared and the knowledge I have great faith about what happens after this life.
  Let me know what you'd like to see on the menu now before it's too late.

GOP 2016-PAUL-MARIJUANA

DENVER (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul is looking for some green from the pot biz. The Kentucky senator sought donations from the newly legal weed business yesterday. He met with donors at the Cannabis Business Summit in Denver. Tickets for the fundraiser started at $2,700. In public remarks after the event, Paul didn't mention marijuana and didn't take questions from most reporters.

NBA JERSEYS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- It's LeBron James versus Stephen Curry, again. And Curry is the winner, again. Curry's jersey is the top seller for the first time. The Golden State Warriors star and league MVP is the best-seller, according to the NBAStore.com. James held the top spot at the end of the regular season, but drops to second. The latest figures cap Curry's incredible year. He led the Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins -- plus 16 more in the playoffs -- and their first championship in 40 years. His Warriors beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games for the NBA crown.

SNAKE-MUSEUM TOILET

ARCHER CITY, Texas (AP) -- There was an unwelcome visitor at a North Texas museum -- a nearly 6-foot-long snake. Mary Ann Levy was opening the museum when she spotted the rat snake curled up in a toilet. Sheriff's Deputy Tina Robertson was supervising an inmate crew mowing at the nearby courthouse. A trusty happened to know about snakes and he helped capture the creature. Levy can laugh about it now. She tells the Wichita Falls Times Record News at least the snake now doesn't have a pot to "hiss in."

NATIONAL MALL-FOOD SERVICE

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Visitors to the National Mall in Washington have some new food options. The National Park Service says concession provider Guest Services is expanding choices at six kiosks. The new options include gluten-free and vegetarian choices. One food station at the Lincoln Memorial will have a specialty burger each month, along with black bean and Boca burgers. At the National Museum of Natural History, a kiosk will have specialty barbecue items. For desert, the food stations will offer seasonal fresh fruit, pies and cheesecakes.
