A list of exciting free crap you can do this weekend in Dallas/Fort Worth.

Holy crap, people, I just discovered the plug-in of a lifetime: Ad-Block Plus for my Firefox browser. At last, I’m not seeing any more POP-UP CRAP or BLINKING MESSAGES or IRRITATING ROLLOVER ADS ... even on YouTube videos! I’m sure Ad-Block Plus has been around for a long time and I’m a few years late to the party, but what the hell. I love this thing! And when Sam gets home from California we’ll install it on his Mac, too.

In case you don’t have other plans and feel like hopping on a plane, here’s a list of exciting FREE CRAP you can do this weekend in Dallas/Fort Worth!
  1. North Texas Asian Photographers Association Membership Exhibition at the Irving Arts Center.
  2. The Dallas Arboretum Bird House Exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum.
  3. Western Treasures Exhibit at the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth.
  4. Native Texas Butterfly Collection at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney.
  5. World’s Largest Swim Lesson at the Crawford Park Pool in Cedar Hill.
  6. The Annual Mesquite Quilt Show at the Rutherford Recreation Center in Mesquite.
  7. Cotton Bowl Trade Days Flea Market in the Embarcadero Building at Fair Park, Dallas.
  8. Passport to Healthy Skin lecture at Pegasus Plaza in downtown Dallas at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
For your possible interest the map below indicates: A) Howdygram headquarters; and B) the Rutherford Recreation Center in Mesquite, which is mentioned in item 6 above. I’m also including a nice photo of the Senior Room with elderly Texans at no extra charge.
Big news, golf fans! Announcing that he’s completely healed from microdiscectomy surgery in March for a pinched nerve in his back, Tiger Woods (pictured below, smiling with lots of teeth) will return to the PGA tour on June 26 for the Quicken Loans National at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. The Tiger Woods Foundation hosts this tournament every year, and this event will mark Tiger’s first competitive rounds since the Cadillac Championship in early March. He missed the Masters and the U.S. Open, and I didn’t bother to watch either of them because PGA golf without Tiger Woods is even less exciting than watching your eyebrows grow. Seriously.
I’m being terrorized by a fruit fly. Somebody call 911, okay?
