The Man Who Invented Chicken

Great article on Colonel Sanders and the Colonel Sanders Museum with information on how he originally started the restaurant and what it’s like to tour the museum.

Midlife Crisis Crossover!

Colonel mask! Darrell Hammond. Norm Macdonald. Jim Gaffigan. Vincent Kartheiser. Rob Riggle. Before those modern actors, kids in the ’60s had their chance to play Colonel Sanders, too.

What do you think of when you think of Kentucky?

For me it’s fried chicken (Hello KFC), but apparently it’s also famous for bourbon, horse racing, and baseball bats and even though it’s November and definitely not tourist season, there was lots to see that kept things exciting.
