- There's been a ton of sad news lately, but here are two small things you can do: Forest Hill Funeral Home has registry books for thoughts, prayers and condolences that will be sent to the Sandy Hook families, and locally, a donation fund to benefit MPD Officer Martoiya Lang's family has been set up by the Bank of Bartlett.

- Put a candle in your margarita – venerable midtown Mexican restaurant Molly's La Casita is 30 years old.

- Welcome to Memphis, John Hollinger – he's moved from covering the NBA for espn.com to working for the Grizzlies.

- As for the Tigers and their game against Louisville on Saturday, all I'll say is that Calkins is right. That, and D.J. Stephens wins at life.

- This is awesome: one of my favorite food trucks, Rock'n'Dough Pizza, is opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant in East Memphis.

- Congrats to Memphis band Tiger High for getting their video for "Be the Indian" on MTV. Good job, y'all.

- Lazy Cakes, the only snack food that should come with a pair of pyjamas, are changing their name to Mellow Munchies.

- Lastly, after he started Piggly Wiggly, Clarence Saunders opened another store called Keedoozle, which had a very interesting ad campaign.
