Pop singer Rihanna was upset about CBS for pulling her song from Thursday Night Football’s opening game, so she tweeted out the F-bomb in their general direction. Nice manners, babe.

  • Virginia is for (oyster) lovers. I don’t know, the best oysters I ever had were in British Columbia, Canada.

  • Best deals for Caribbean vacations start about now. Avoid Thanksgiving. My cousin Pam and her daughter are on a Caribbean cruise as we speak.

  • USA Today has their picks for some of the most iconic restaurants in the south. I’ve never been to any of these, I’m afraid.

  • Service industry people you should tip. The garbage collector? Really? I guess if he came into my yard and collected the garbage, I could see it. But I’m not sure a guy driving a truck who operates a lifer to pick up the garbage that I must carry to the curb is tip-worthy, and I am a very generous tipper. Heck, I even tip on take-out.

    Also, I disagree with the reduction in tip for a waiter for "poor" service — unless, of course, he or she gives some kind of nasty attitude or is blatantly incompetent — then all bets are off. My tip starts at 20%, period, and goes up from there depending on service quality.

    If I get poor service, I call the manager over and discuss it with him or her, but I don’t short the server. Usually, poor service reflects inadequate training, and the proper place to direct that issue is to management. If it continues, I simply don’t return to the restaurant. I’ve occasionally been forced to have very pointed conversations with management. It works for me, your mileage may vary.
