Where is the only place on a divided highwa that a solid yellow line appears by itself?

That is just one of the questions on the Road Challenge Test. I took it, and did,â€¦well,â€¦fair.
Thanks to my friend, Rich, a former Coastie.
TJ relates a hilarious story about her interesting encounter with electricity today. I particularly liked the part where she called the doctor saying that she believed she had â€œelectrocutedâ€ herself. That statement was undoubtedly the product of an electricity-induced brain fart.
Robert Palmer, best known for songs such â€œAddicted to Love,â€ and â€œSimply Irresistible,â€ and their respective mondo-sexy videos, died in Paris of heart attack. He was 54.
â€œAddicted to Loveâ€ earned Palmer a Grammy in 1986 for best male vocal. I always thought that the full-bore crunch guitar hook in that song was terrific, although at the moment I cannot recall (nor can I find) who played guitar on the record (Hispanic name, methinks). Of course, the women in the video pretending to play instruments were comical, but I doubt that many men focused on their hands.
George Plimpton died unexpectedly in his Manhattan apartment last night. He was 76. He was best known for his 1963 book â€œPaper Lion,â€ in which he chronicled his participation in the Detroit Lions football pre-season training camp. I am not much of a sports fan, but I recall laughing out loud at that book. As I recall, he described the linemen as “having hands like cabbages.”
Plimpton was a prolific and talented writer, but he also did many other things.
He boxed with Archie Moore, pitched to Willie Mays and performed as a trapeze artist for the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus. He acted in numerous films, including “Reds” and “Good Will Hunting.” He even appeared in an episode of “The Simpsons,” playing a professor who runs a spelling bee.
He was good guy.
