On the front page of the Houston Chronicle there was an article about the crimes committed by the wives and girlfriends of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. It's absolutely horrible and I wish I could go back and unread it. I won't be sharing those details with you.
I was cheered up a little bit by the next article I read which was about how more retailers are experimenting with home delivery. Over the years I have enjoyed home delivery of pizzas, Chinese food, prescriptions, water and the newspaper. There are some local grocery stores who deliver but I'm all about saving as much money as possible on groceries, not spending extra to have them brought to my door. There are dry cleaners who deliver as well but most of my jeans and t-shirts do not require that level of care. I was, however, excited to read that Advance Auto Parts stores in Houston are now making home deliveries. The delivery fee varies depending on the amount of your purchase, but for around $10 you can have a new battery brought to you and installed by a helpful Advance Auto Parts representative who will also take away your old battery. This can be very helpful if you're stranded at home or at work with a dead battery and no one to come to your rescue. Yay Advance Auto Parts!
