APD IS DOING A NO REFUSAL WEEKEND starting tonight (Friday 8/30) @ 9pm through Tuesday September 3rd at 5am. This DWI initiative is an effort to enforce DWI laws, keep the public safe and to conduct blood search warrants on those who refuse to give a breath or blood test when they are pulled over on suspicion of DWI!
Please don't Drink & Drive. Have a designated driver if you are drinking, or call a cab. Click here for cab 411! Cap Metro 411 here!
September 1st new laws go into effect: One law requires drivers to move over or slow down when they approach a stopped Texas Department of Transportation vehicle with its lights on and not separated from the roadway with a traffic control device. Under current law drivers must do this with tow trucks and emergency vehicles. Failure to do so will result in a $200 fine.
-Drivers also must have two license plates on the vehicle or they will face a $200 fine.
-Drivers will now be allowed to use their cell phone to show proof of insurance.

'The Cinnamon Roll Pancake'. These are AMAZING! HAPPY YUMMY! I suggest trying them out before they are gone until next time. I'm all for putting these on the menu permanently. IF YOU LIKE CINNAMON ROLLS AND PANCAKES, IT'S THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!
Looks like Miley's Twerk(ing) has created a lasting impression in lots of ways and places. 'Twerk' has become the newest official verb added to The Oxford Dictionary as part of their quarterly update w/ new words.
"Twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."
A few others add:
'Selfie'- word typically used to describe pouty smartphone self-portraits,
"Digital Detox" for time spent way from Facebook and Twitter
"Bitcoin," for the nationless electronic currency
Don't you feel smarter now... LOL!
How about we give Miley a break and learn some Twerk moves from Tweetie.

It's true... I've been a longtime fan of Coca Cola /products. I grew up in a home that had and still has the 'Coca Cola Friendly Refrigerator'. My Daddy's Dad/my Grandpa.. Big Papa drove a Coca Cola truck when he was a young man in Virginia, and eventually opened a small quick stop store where he sold Coca Cola products in Weems, VA.
(Daddy Maurice & Charming Carmen) When we went to my grandparents to visit, I was always given an ice cold Coke. I grew into a BIG FAN of Cherry Coke/Diet Cherry Coke/Diet Coke, depending on my mood that day.
Well, a few years ago, I heard about the Coca Cola Freestyle fountain dispensor machine coming to ATX Schlotzsky's. Yes, I'm also a BIG FAN of Schlotzsky's. I had been eating their yummy sandwiches growing up in Omaha, NE. I didn't realize they started in ATX, until I moved here about 8 years ago. Schlotzsky's + Coca Cola= AWESOME. So I had to check out this 'Coca Cola Freestyle' machine that has over 100 different drink combos. Endless drink combos you can't get in a store, but the Coca Cola Freestyle allows you FREEDOM & FUN to create your Yummy MASTERPIECE DRINKS! Check out the video of my 1st experience w/ the 'Coca Cola Freestyle' at the Schlotzsky's on S. Lamar, a few years ago, one of the 1st places to get THE FABULOUS COCA COLA FREESTYLE IN ATX! EASY & FUN TO USE....
Click here to see some of the cool people I meet that day having fun w/ the Coca Cola Freestyle and the drink combos they created!
I was first introduced to the Coca Cola Freestyle in 2010, and it's going STRONG all around the ATX area and the nation allowing peeps to create their own FUN Drink Combos! You can find one to have FUN w/ at participating Schlotzsky's. Click here to find the one near your!

Wish you could bottle up that energy? Looks like someone has tried it. 'Sprayable Energy'(spray on caffeine). You spray it on your skin like you would cologne/perfume. 4 sprays are suggested to be the same amount of energy as 1 cup of coffee. You are suppose to get energy quick without out gitters or crashing. You control the amount, which can be good and bad.
These commercials are becoming more and more popular. The ones you have no idea what the product is until the end, and there is still confusion on how it relates to the product. This ad shows a new place your guy can carry your stuff instead of carrying your purse.. LOL!
