Be a Music City Tourist! - 04/18/14

Happy Easter Weekend!  I hope you are having a great holiday.  I have family visiting from the northeast this week and have had a chance to play tour guide and tourist at the same time.  It's been fun! If you haven't taken the time to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame (most of us that live here probably haven't), take a trip downtown!  I had a blast there on Wednesday!  It's a great place to spend a few hours rolling down memory lane and learn more about this great place we call home. 
A friend once suggested that when she has family or guests that will be staying at her home for a few days, she would spend a night in the guest room before they arrive to make sure she had supplied everything her guest would need to make it as enjoyable as possible.  I always thought that is a great idea.  Take it a step further and play the role of tourist in your own town and check out all of the great things Nashville has to offer!  I bet you'll have a great time too!

SELF-DRIVING BIG RIG

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Who's driving the big rig? The computer! Daimler Trucks North America says its "Inspiration" truck is the first self-driving semi to be licensed to roll on public roads. It's being tested on Nevada's highways. There's still a driver behind the wheel -- in this case it was Mark Alvick. He had the truck in "highway pilot" mode. So, no hands on the wheel or feet on the pedals. But forget about catching some "Z's." Daimler says their drivers won't be snoozing or texting even when the truck is in automatic mode.

PULLING TEETH-JAVELIN

UNDATED (AP) -- Olympic gold medalist Bryan Clay is practicing a little creative dentistry. He helped his 5-year-old daughter pull out a loose tooth with a javelin throw. The American decathlete tied one end of a piece of floss to the tooth, the other end to the javelin. Out popped the tooth. It's all captured in a video that's going viral. Clay says in an email the idea was a joint effort with his daughter and wife. He says Ellie is their youngest and watched as her older brother and sister did some crazy stunts to remove their loose teeth. Now it was her turn.

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A move to legalize pot in Texas is getting tea party backing. A state House committee has passed a legalization measure. Republican state Representative David Simpson argues that pot comes from God and therefore shouldn't be banned by government. The tea party favorite supports what he calls the "Christian case" for legalization. The bill would still have to be considered by the full House, before the session ends June 1.

WRONG WAY NAKED DRIVER

GRANT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan authorities charge a naked woman forgot more than her clothes. Clare County deputies say 23-year-old Jessie Schwaub-Devault was nude when she was stopped for driving the wrong way and drunken driving. According to authorities, Schwaub-Devault had also left her naked husband and child at a highway rest stop. She now faces a number of charges, including drunken driving, indecent exposure and child abuse. Her husband, Joshua Devault, was also arraigned on indecent exposure and child abuse charges.
