According to an article in USA Today, it seems we pay a lot of attention to what our boss drives. Only 10% of us don't know what the top dog drives. We know, and we care. Whether our boss is like Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton who drove an old pick-up, or Warren Buffet who drove a 2001 Lincoln, or the the most preferred car of CEOs everywhere - the BMW.

Speaking of driving, Grant found a story this morning of a woman who drove for 82 years without having an accident. Muriel Gladwin, who taught herself how to drive when she was a child, is hanging up her driving gloves at the age of 94.

Muriel gives up her wheels!

Plus, last but not least, Grant found this little gem. The headline reads "Parrot Forces Man to Keep Changing His Ringtone." Stuart McNae has had to change the ringtone on his phone five times and will probably soon have to change it a sixth time because his blue-fronted Amazon parrot has learned to mimic them. The parrot has already learned the BBC Match of the Day tune, Lou Bega's Mambo Number 5, Soul Limbo by Booker T, the Nokia theme, and Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry. He chooses to mimic the current ringtone when McNae is out of the room.

Have a good one! We'll see you in the morning.
