I haven’t seen it in person, but apparently IKEA has taken station domination to a new level. The Nordic furniture company has “furnished” several Paris metro stations for a couple of weeks. Read about it and see a photo here.

I’ve come across this ad in a few places around Paris and each time it cracks me up. It’s not unusual to see ads in the city advocating the use of condoms, but this is the first one I’ve noticed that uses a senior citizen as the primary model. The headline says that condoms protect from AIDS, and just below it states “Odette 13,874 condoms”. Use condoms and you may live a happy and sex-filled life as long as Odette’s. I think that's pretty straightforward.

Gene Porter, the owner of Dixie’s BBQ in Bellevue and creator of the "The Man" hot sauce, has died. If you like ridiculously hot sauce, then Porter’s The Man is for you. My one encounter with The Man occurred when I was working for a small start-up company in Seattle and the boss decided to take us to the eastside to meet The Man. After one bite, I was convinced that part of my tongue had been burned away. According to the PI/Bellevue Reporter article Dixie’s will remain in business, but it won’t be the same without Gene Porter there to ask if you’ve met The Man.
