News From Along Route 66-- March 2015

MARCH 22ND--  Big Texan record holder Molly Schulyer returning in April.  She set the record by eating that famous 72-ounce steak and sides in less than five minutes.  She will be returning April 19th to defend her title.  She plans to eat three of the steaks in under an hour.

There are videos of her on You Tube and they are not for the squeamish.  She essentially bites and swallows with no or very little chewing.  Then plenty of washes.

To me, that sure isn't the way to enjoy a steak.  Surely no savoring.

MARCH 24TH--  The Sears Tower in Chicago was sold for $1.3 billion.  I refused to call it by that other name and won't call it by whatever its new name is.  I'd rather go out on that skyledge and jump up and down.

MARCH 25TH--  Pictures of what shape the Tropics sign is in at Lincoln, Illinois, are very disappointing.  How could a city that aware of its Route 66 heritage let something like this happen?  Maybe they should get an online effort started to save that.

MARCH 28TH--  In Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Aztec Motel sign was taken down, the rest of the motel was torn down in 2011.  At this point it is not known what will happen to it but it might become a part of a Route 66 park.  The original Aztec Auto Court was built in 1933.

At least save part of the place.
