Awards season is here! Oscar nominations came out today and, per the usual routine, I have never heard of any of the films nominated for best picture. This happens every year. I eventually get around to watching most of them, though I still can’t bring myself to finish Nebraska from the 2014 awards season. Apparently there is a reason that these titles seem unknown. Many of these films haven’t even hit the mainstream big screen, yet! As long as they played in one “big” screen at one time during 2014, they are eligible for that year’s awards. Since most of us aren’t hobnobbing around LA or New York, making appearances at exclusive premiers of these big-time films, we might need a little help when it comes to putting together our Oscar picks this year. Don’t worry. Our Dallas Tire Delivery team has you covered!
Back in my college days, before I was writing Dallas Bank Delivery blogs for Dallas Courier, I worked as a barista. If you aren’t quite as learned as our Bank Deliveries Dallas team, or maybe over-priced coffee isn’t your style, “barista” is a snooty word for “coffee maker”. As a barista, I knew exactly what was going into your fancy cup of Joe. Those calories really add up! Take your favorite chocolately, caffeinated mocha drink. That bad boy packs 400 calories, 15 grams of fat, and nearly 50 grams of sugar! Pretty soon, you’re adding on 10-40 pounds a year just from your regular coffee drink. We agree that the madness has to stop, right? The great news is you don’t have to give up your coffee fix to whittle your waistline. Here are some fancy coffee terms to tell your barista to slash calories and lighten up your latte.
Last week, the world lost an entertainment icon and an old favorite of our Dallas Hot Shot Couriers. Mickey Rooney passed away at the age of 93. His career was expansive; one of the longest in entertainment history. With 88 years in the cinema, he appeared in over 200 films, various Broadway shows and musicals, and lent his vocal talents to movies, TV shows, and commercials. You may remember him best as Andy Hardy in the film series with the same name, but that was only the tip of the iceberg of Rooney’s career.
Call it immature. Call it unprofessional. Or maybe call it smart. There are a lot of little birdies who have returned to their mother and
father’s nest. They had good intentions. They went off to a university where they earned their four-year degree (some of them took a little longer than four years, but they were awarded their degree eventually). They got a great job, perhaps working for our Hot Shot Deliveries Dallas team. They make a solid income that any single adult could easily live off of. But they’re still shacked up with mom and dad.
Say that title in a Texas twang, and you'll get what we're after. Doesn't it make you just want to go out and get all the things you need for one of the greatest holidays ever created? Our Dallas Courier team is more than ready to celebrate the great U S of A with burgers, ice cream, and some beautiful fireworks. We know how hectic it can be this time of year folks, but make sure you have some great plans with the friends and fam this July 4th. Now, we also know that there are other things that can get hectic during this holiday. Yup, you guessed it... the fireworks.
