SLOW start this morning, very slow start, I have found that I am getting better and better at being slow? Does anyone else agree? Seems no matter how fast i attempt to be or how fast i think i am in my head it always turns out to be slow :) YEEE HAW it sounds like we are all picking up speed rolling downhill!! :) I enjoy it though. I found something that may help or hinder your thoughts today. DO you have a lot of MOLES?!?!?! LOL seriously its some kind of study that's shaking down about being slow, or aging slow....enjoy haha:

This was taken from CBC news

Moles linked with slower aging: study

People with a lot of moles may age slower than those with few moles, say British scientists, who suggest this may mean fewer age-related illnesses such as heart disease or osteoporosis for "moley people."

In a 10-year study of more than 1,800 twins, researchers at the University of London's King's College, found those with more than 100 moles had a biological age six to seven years younger than those with fewer than 25 moles.

The study was published in the July edition of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention.

The researchers estimated age using telomere length. Telomeres, which get shorter as we get older, are bundles of DNA found at the end of chromosomes in all cells and help protect, replicate and stabilize chromosome ends.

Scientists say telomeres are like the plastic tips on shoelaces, because they prevent chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other.

While large numbers of moles are linked to an increased risk of melanoma, a rare form of skin cancer, doctors have long suspected that people with lots of moles may have some advantages because moles are common in the general population.

Moles appear in childhood and disappear starting at around middle age. They can vary significantly in numbers and size. Scientists don't know why there are such differences between people, or even the function of moles.

"The results of this study are very exciting as they show for the first time that moley people, who have a slightly increased risk of melanoma, may, on the other hand, have the benefit of a reduced rate of aging," said lead researcher Dr. Veronique Bataille.

"This could imply susceptibility to fewer age-related diseases such as heart disease or osteoporosis, for example. Further studies are needed to confirm these findings."

These results suggest those with higher numbers of moles may have a delayed aging as they have longer telomeres and appear to keep their moles for longer. In contrast, people with shorter telomeres have lower numbers of moles and appear to lose them quicker with age — which may be a marker of accelerated aging.

"We now plan to look in more detail at the genes which influence the numbers of moles and to see whether they may also slow down the aging process in general. We'll examine the rate of aging in the skin, muscles and bones in different groups according to their mole counts," said Tim Spector, study co-author.

I am checking my body for the naughty culprits right now. I suggest you do the same, at some point. What a wild study though.

CMN (country music news)

Miss Carrie Underwood is no stranger to the number-one spot on the chart, and she's headed there again with her latest single, "I Told You So." Originally a chart-topper for RANDY TRAVIS in 1988, Carrie decided to record her own version of "I Told You So" because she wishes she'd recorded it first. Carrie says, quote, "We were looking cover songs to do...I started going through my iPod and...I thought maybe ["I Told You So"] would work. Carrie's also a big fan of Randy Travis. She says, quote, "I grew up listening to [him]. Randy Travis is kind of a staple of country music for me." "I Told You So" is the fifth single from Carrie's current album, Carnival Ride. And btw she owns Randy in this version of the song, completely blows him up with it. Sorrrrrrrry Randy man! :)

Who could ever confuse TIM MCGRAW with BILLY RAY CYRUS? A photographer, that's who. On Tuesday, Tim and FAITH HILL were spotted out and about in L.A. by a pack of paparazzi. One clueless photographer, who works for the gossip website, said to Tim, "How you doing, Billy?", and then asked "Where's Miley today?" Faith started laughed and corrected the guy, adding, "It's a compliment, though, Billy's a great guy." She then quipped, "I'm Miley, can't you tell?," while Tim joked, "Actually, I'm KENNY CHESNEY."

Later, when the photographer spotted Tim and Faith again, he claimed he was just "joking" when he confused Tim with Billy Ray. Yeah, right. You can watch the whole thing on

In this Saturday's edition of CMT Insider, KEITH URBAN denies that he and his wife NICOLE KIDMAN are expecting another baby. Well, at least he denies that HE's expecting a baby.

According to People magazine, Keith says, "I'm not pregnant, no, definitely not. I haven't had any check-ups recently's just going out on a limb here." Fans had been speculating that Nicole was pregnant again because a recent photo showed her hands covering up her tummy, as if to hide a baby bump.

Also in the CMT Insider interview, Keith says fatherhood is "excellent" and clarifies that the baby in the video for "Sweet Thing" is not his daughter, SUNDAY ROSE. You can watch the whole thing this Saturday at 1:30pm ET/PT.

TAYLOR SWIFT stood in as High School Musical star ZAC EFRON's date last night as she attended the Australian premiere of Zac's new movie, 17 Again. Taylor's actually on tour Down Under, but she took some time out to walk the red carpet with Zac at the premiere in Sydney. The movie opens in the U.S. on April 17th.

According to published reports, Zac explained that his girlfriend VANESSA HUDGENS couldn't make the event, but said he was glad to have Taylor as a replacement -- he called her "a lovely, lovely girl." And Taylor was lovely, sporting a white dress with rhinestone and mirror detailing around the bodice, waist and neck.

DOLLY PARTON made a memorable appearance on American Idol last season. And unlike some other established artists, she doesn't see a problem with a show that brings aspiring singers overnight success. Dolly tells Atlanta's WAGA-TV, "It's different from the way folks like me made it in the business, but....I think it's wonderful that people have a vehicle where you don't have to work so hard!"

Dolly also compared Idol to "winning the lottery," and added, "If you can get a good head start, I think it's wonderful. So I think certainly it's been a big enough success that it proves that it's a good way to go."


Apple has introduced the latest generation of its iPod Shuffle. As you probably expected, it's smaller and has more memory than the previous generation. Being billed as the world's tiniest music player, the third generation Shuffle is reportedly smaller than a AA battery, with four gigabytes of memory -- enough to store up to 1,000 songs. But the biggest new feature is VoiceOver, which announces songs to users in 14 languages. That's particularly useful since the tiny Shuffle doesn't have a display screen to show you what you're hearing. And now, with VoiceOver, listeners can effectively switch between playlists. The price for the new shuffle is 79 dollars.


PATRICK SWAYZE denies his life will come to an end in the near future. The 56-year-old actor, who's battling pancreatic cancer, claims a National Enquirer headline that reads "Patrick Swayze: The End" is not accurate. The cover story is accompanied by unflattering photos of him.

In a statement released yesterday through his publicist, The Beast star said, quote, "It's amazing to me that the tabloids such as The National Enquirer print such negative stories about me and my health when there are so many positive things going on in my life right now. I've started a new chemotherapy and, once again, I am one of the lucky ones with pancreatic cancer that is responding well to the treatment."

Swayze also noted that he's working on his memoir, due this fall, and is appreciative of the positive response to his cable TV series. He even said his family recently welcomed a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy named Kumasai.

NBC's ER will admit a few of its old staff members onto tonight's episode, including a certain someone who once played Dr. Doug Ross. While NBC hasn't specifically confirmed reports that GEORGE CLOONEY will be featured in the episode, the preview on its website does note that the doctor who JULIANNA MARGULIES' character, Nurse Carol Hathaway, married on the show will return. That would be Ross, last played by Clooney in the year 2000 in a cameo. Furthermore, a poll on the ER website asking fans which original cast member they are most excited to see on the drama includes Clooney as an option.

Margulies herself alluded to a brief reunion with Clooney on ER in a recent interview with Us Weekly, saying that he didn't pull any of his trademark pranks while on the set.

Margulies and former co-stars NOAH WYLE and ERIQ LA SALLE are also scheduled to appear in tonight's episode, as is SUSAN SARANDON. You can catch them all tonight on NBC at 10 p.m. Eastern time. ER ends its 15-season run on April 2nd.

{Wingnut's TAKE} There are more doctors than patients in this ER. You'd think there would be no wait to be admitted.

Saturday Night Live has upset another politician with one of its sketches. Hawaii Lieutenant Governor JAMES "DUKE" AIONA wasn't amused by a sketch that aired last weekend, featuring host DWAYNE JOHNSON and cast member FRED ARMISEN as a pair of Hawaiian singers/dancers at a restaurant frequented by American tourists. They complained about their low wages and repeatedly mocked the customers; Johnson's character told one of them, quote, "Our biggest export is coffee. And our biggest import is fat white tourists."

While the sketch has become a big hit on the Internet, Aioni wonders if it might affect Hawaii's tourism, especially in light of the country's economic problems. He says the sketch, quote, "went too far in its negative depiction" of native Hawaiians and the state's tourism industry. He says he will send a letter to SNL executive producer LORNE MICHAELS to express his displeasure.

The state's tourism liaison, MARSHA WIENERT, agrees with Aioni, telling The Honolulu Advertiser that the sketch was "distasteful" and "offensive."

SNL was criticized by New York Governor DAVID PATERSON earlier this year for making fun of his blindness on the show. Armisen has portrayed Paterson in multiple sketches this season.

{Wingnut's TAKE} Saturday Night Live" is thrilled. Hawaiians found the sketch "distasteful" and "offensive," but they said nothing about not being funny.....If "Saturday Night Live" is influencing your decision to go to Hawaii, then you're an idiot. LOL

DANIEL RADCLIFFE is the most bankable teen in Hollywood. That's according to Forbes magazine, which has named the 19-year-old Harry Potter actor as Hollywood's most valuable young star, based on its Star Currency survey released last month. The poll asked members of the entertainment industry to rank hundreds of actors based on multiple factors, including their ability to generate box office revenue.

Radcliffe earned a score of 6.03 out of 10, mostly because of his success in the Harry Potter films. His next adventure as the boy wizard, titled Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, hits theaters on July 17th.

The second-ranked teenager, 16-year-old singer-actress MILEY CYRUS, will be seen on the big screen next month in Hannah Montana: The Movie. DAKOTA FANNING, ABIGAIL BRESLIN and HAYDEN PANETTIERE round out the top five. WILL SMITH led all actors, regardless of age, in the Star Currency survey last month.

The actors included in the "young stars" list were 19 or younger when the original survey was released last month. Here is Forbes' list, with the celebrities' current ages and scores:

1. Daniel Radcliffe, 19 years old, 6.03
2. Miley Cyrus, 16 years old, 5.93
3. Dakota Fanning, 15 years old, 5.58
4. Abigail Breslin, 12 years old, 4.83
5. Hayden Panettiere, 19 years old, 4.14
6. Emma Watson, 18 years old, 4.02
7. Freddie Highmore, 17 years old, 3.73
8. Keke Palmer, 15 years old, 3.17
9. Emma Roberts, 18 years old, 3.07
10. Anton Yelchin, 20 years old, 3.05

JOAQUIN PHOENIX had an altercation with an audience member at his rap show in Miami Beach early this morning. It's up to you to decide whether it was all an act.

Phoenix jumped off the stage to face the audience member before security guards escorted him away from the scene. Since his brother-in-law, CASEY AFFLECK, was filming the concert for his documentary on Phoenix's career change, it's very possible that the confrontation was scripted.

There's certainly reason to believe that Phoenix is orchestrating an elaborate hoax. He fell off the stage during his rap debut in Las Vegas in January, and made an awkward appearance on Late Show with David Letterman the following month. Phoenix has also grown a shaggy beard.

COUCH POTATO ROUND UP (tv last night)

Hey, Idol-watchers, remember how angry folks were last season when MICHAEL JOHNS was voted out so early? Well, thanks to American Idol's brand-new rule, we may be spared that kind of agony from now on. Last night on the Idol results show, which ultimately saw both JASMINE MURRAY and JORGE NUNEZ head home, the concept of the "Judges' Save" was introduced. From now up until the Top 5, the judges will have the power to save one contestant from elimination. The decision must be unanimous and, again, they can only do it once this season. The week the judges use their save, no one will go home, but the following week, two more contestants will be eliminated. It's worth noting that this particular rule would not have saved CHRIS DAUGHTRY, Idol's most shocking vote-off, since he had already made it to the top four when he got booted.

Last night, unsurprisingly, the judges all turned down the chance to use their one save to rescue Jasmine and Jorge. Here's how it went down:

First, we were shown footage of all 13 contestants moving into their huge new mansion, which comes complete with a basketball court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, bowling alley and screening room. Despite the size, they all still have to share bedrooms.

Next, the group performed a medley of the JACKSON FIVE hits "I Want You Back" and "ABC." Legally blind SCOTT MACINTYRE managed to dance around the stage, guided by whichever fellow contestant he was standing next to at the time. We then got a look at the season's first cheesy Ford commercial, set to QUEEN's "We Will Rock You."

Next, RYAN SEACREST had MICHAEL SARVER and ALLISON IRAHETA stand up and announced they were safe. Jasmine was told to stand center stage. MATT GIRAUD and KRIS ALLEN were then told they were safe, and MEGAN JOY CORKREY was sent to join Jasmine center stage. Ryan then announced that Megan was safe and Jasmine was out, unless the judges voted to save her. She performed "I'll Be There" while they deliberated, and then RANDY JACKSON said, "No, sorry, you're headed home."

Next, we saw an obviously pre-taped performance from KANYE WEST, who sang "Heartless." Then, Ryan told Scott, ALEXIS GRACE and DANNY GOKEY that they were safe, sent ANOOP DESAI to center stage, told ADAM LAMBERT he was safe -- big surprise -- sent Jorge to center stage, and then told LIL ROUNDS she was safe.

As Anoop and Jorge sweated it out, KELLY CLARKSON appeared, live, to perform her #1 hit "My Life Would Suck Without You." Ryan announced that the show will be featuring a different Idol every week, but didn't say which ones.

Ryan then told Anoop he was safe and told Jorge he was out, unless the judges decided to save him. As he sang "Never Can Say Goodbye" one more time, the judges deliberated. Well, actually, PAULA ABDUL danced and waved her arms. Then, Simon curtly told Jorge, "No, sorry."

Tune in next Tuesday night to see the now-Top 11 do it all over again.

NEWS abused by WiNgNuT

Ticket booths at Disneyland were temporarily closed Sunday morning after authorities became alarmed over a suspicious powder stuck to the windows of several booths. [Just one more reason to make sure Mickey is never disgruntled.]

According to a study, nearly 60% of employees steal valuable information when they leave a job. [And 95% take valuable office supplies.]

A new national poll indicates that nearly three out of four Americans are scared about the way things are going in the country today. [I'm not surprised. Jobs are disappearing, the stock market is bust, Sean Penn won an Oscar...]

Bruce Springsteen will headline this year's Glastonbury Festival. [Meanwhile, Michael Phelps will be managing the weed booth.]

The recession may be forcing the average American to cut back, but Hollywood insiders say the Academy Awards after-parties went on like nothing was wrong. [The one at Brad and Angelina's house was top notch, thanks in part to all of the free child labor.]

According to a Nielsen report, Americans are watching more television than ever. [Well, we have to do something to get our minds off of all the bad news on the radio.]

OSCAR'S BIG HIT (do we care?)

The reviews are in. And so are the ratings. The 81st Annual Academy Awards climbed 13% in the ratings from last year's record low. The telecast averaged 36.3 million viewers, ABC says, up from last year's 32 million, when No Country for Old Men took home the best-picture prize. Ratings for the past five years, followed by best-picture winner:

2008 - 32.0 million (No Country for Old Men)
2007 - 40.2 million (The Departed)
2006 - 38.9 million (Crash)
2005 - 42.1 million (Million Dollar Baby)
2004 - 43.5 million (Lord of the Rings: Return of the King)

... And what are the critics saying? They're not really raving --except for Oprah Winfrey on her show Monday and Roger Ebert online. USA TODAY's Robert Bianco says the Oscar show's "improvements often seemed to come more in spite of host Hugh Jackman than because of him." Some other critics:

... New York Daily News' David Hinckley: "Jackman did his best. His mission just wasn’t accomplishable."

... Newsweek's Pop Vox columnist: "Throughout the telecast, my BlackBerry buzzed with messages from friends, all in their 20s, about how un-hip and un-young and unwatchable the Oscars felt."

... The New York Times' Alessandra Stanley: Jackman was the "hosting equivalent of a value meal. ... Mr. Jackman was high-spirited, not mean-spirited."

... Los Angeles Times' Mary McNamara: "Now I'm sorry, but didn't we decide, like as a nation, that Big Dance numbers were a blight on the Oscars telecast?"

What Just Happened?


The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice.

Speaking of movies that are out on DVD now and that you can watch through COMCAST ON DEMAND (order Comcast now at 1-800-COMCAST) Have you guys seen BODY of LIES very secret AGENT type stuff in that movie, check out a clip below:

Check out some secret agent code type research done for you right here!!


Stores, hospitals, entertainment venues, and other places where the public are together in large numbers use secret codes to pass information between store employees. These are meant to be a secret as they don’t want to alarm the non-staff members, or alert someone (like a thief) to the fact that they have been noticed.

Time Check -- as in "Time check: the time is 12:32" -- can be a code in stores for a bomb alert. It alerts the staff to follow the bomb procedure, which can be to either try to locate any suspicious packages, or to prepare to get the heck out. If you hear a time check in a store, it is probably a good idea to start moving toward the exit.

A Code 10 in hospitals can refer to a mass casualty or serious threat (such as a bomb alert), but the majority of people experiencing a code 10 will do so for another far more common reason: a "Code 10 authorization" is made by a merchant when he needs to call a credit card company to inquire about your card. This means that he is suspicious of you or your card and doesn't want you to know it while he gets it checked out. When the credit card company hears that they have a Code 10, they will ask a series of yes/no questions to the merchant in order to find out what the situation is. This will often result in the merchant keeping your card if they believe it is safe to do so. This type of call often results in a call to law enforcement.

Doctor Brown is a code word often used in hospitals to alert security staff to a threat to personnel. If a nurse or doctor is in danger from a violent patient or non-staff member, they can page Doctor Brown to their location and the security staff will rush to their aid. In some hospitals, Code Silver is used to refer to a person with a weapon, and Code Gray can mean a violent person without a weapon.

In computer support, a variety of codes can be used when referring to a customer. One of these codes has become fairly well known on the Internet: PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair), but there are a variety of others that are lesser known. One of these is used when reporting a fault which has been fixed: "The fault was a PICNIC" (Problem In Chair Not In Computer), or "ID 10 T Error" -- ID 10 T spelling the word idiot.

On a ship, a Code Oscar means someone has gone overboard.

Code Bravo is the code phrase for a general security alert at airports. For those of you who travel on ships from time to time, you may like to know that Code Bravo means fire and it is the most serious alert on a ship.

Inspector Sands (or sometimes Mr. Sands) is a code for fire in the United Kingdom. Obviously it would not be appropriate for the service staff of a store to announce a fire publicly, so this code is used to alert the appropriate staff to the danger without upsetting customers. A frequently used code for a bomb in London's famous Underground is Mr. Gravel. For example, "Mr. Gravel is in the foyer."

Code Adam was invented by Walmart but it is now an internationally recognized alert. It means missing child. The code was first coined in 1994 in memory of Adam Walsh, a six-year old who went missing in a Sears department store in Florida in 1981. Adam was later found murdered. The person making the announcement will state, "We have a code Adam," followed by a description of the missing child. As soon as the alert is heard, security staff will begin to monitor the doors and other exits. If the child is not found within 10 minutes, the police are alerted and a store search begins.

Hey I thought it was cool?! :)

JOKE of the day sent to me by Stan Thomas of the SPRINGS.....ENJOY thanks STAN!
E-mail you jokes to me now at

A man with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large company. The interviewer looks over his papers and says, "This is phenomenal. You've graduated from the best schools; your recommendations are wonderful; and your experience is unparalleled. Normally, we'd hire you without hesitation. But a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we're afraid that your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I'm sorry... but we just can't hire you." The applicant says, "Wait. If I take two aspirin, I'll stop winking!" He then reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, green condoms, ribbed condoms, big condoms, small condoms. Finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin. He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking. "Well," said the interviewer, "that's all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanizing all over the country!" "Womanizing?," the applicant says. "What do you mean? I'm a happily married man!" "Well," the interviewer says, "how do you explain all these condoms?" "Oh, that," the applicant sighs. "Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?"

NAP time...

Greetings BLOGGERS!!!!

Monday, Monday Oh how we love Monday's MONDAY, MONDAY!!! Reminds me of a song!

OK maybe another SONG!

HA they make me laugh!!!

Last night we have to break down the Oscars! Roll the stats:

Watch in amazement as we recap, the visual stiml-you-lie-is your eye doth crave!

It was "Slum" enchanted evening at last night's 81st Annual Academy Awards as Slumdog Millionaire swept to victory with eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Song and Best Adapted Screenplay. The feel-good story of a kid from the slums of Mumbai who lands on the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in a quest to find the love of his life proved irresistable to Oscar voters, beating out more serious fare like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Reader, Frost/Nixon and Milk. In his acceptance speech, director DANNY BOYLE thanked the people of Mumbai, holding up his Oscar statuette and saying that they, quote, "dwarf even this guy."

After five nominations, KATE WINSLET finally scored her first-ever Oscar on her sixth -- she won for her role as a Nazi prison guard in The Reader. She told the audience, "I'd be lying if I haven't made a version of this speech before. I think I was probably eight years old and staring into the bathroom mirror and this would have been a shampoo bottle." Clutching her newly-won statuette, she added, "It's not a shampoo bottle now!"

SEAN PENN won his second Oscar for playing the real-life murdered gay activist HARVEY MILK. At the podium, Penn jokingly called the Oscar voters "Commie, homo-loving son of a guns," and noted his reputation as a "difficult" actor by admitting, "I know how hard I make it to appreciate me, often." Penn also used his speech to call for "equal rights for everyone," and acknowledged the man many thought would beat him for the award by saying, "MICKEY ROURKE rises again...and he is my brother."

As expected, HEATH LEDGER won Best Supporting Oscar for The Dark Knight -- precisely 13 months after his death from an accidential overdose of prescription drugs. His family accepted on his behalf, saying, "This award tonight would have humbly validated Heath's quiet determination to be truly accepted by you all here -- his peers within an industry he so loved." PENELOPE CRUZ won for Best Supporting Actress for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and delivered the second half of her speech in her native Spanish.

As for the actual Oscar telecast, the producers promised something radically different, and in many ways, it was. The stage had more of a nightclub feel, with the orchestra onstage. Host HUGH JACKMAN sang and danced his heart out, starting with an opening number that incorporated "homemade props" and nods to all the nominated films, and some that weren't. The man known to many as Wolverine pointedly asked, in one lyric, "How come comic book movies never get nominated?" Jackman also did a full-blown, top-hat-and-tails salute to movie musicals with the help of BEYONCÉ, High School Musical stars ZAC EFRON and VANESSA HUDGENS, and DOMINIC COOPER and AMANDA SEYFRIED of Mamma Mia!

Other differences: lengthy montages of all the big movies of the year -- nominated or not -- were shown, grouped into categories like romance, action, animation and documentary. And the awards were handed out in the order in which they would fall during the actual creation of a film -- first comes the screenplay, then the costume design, then the special effects, then the music, then the directing, and so on.

The most unusual change in the show was having five past winners in the four major acting categories come onstage, personally address each nominee, and simply describe their roles: no clips from their performances were shown. That amounted to 20 extra mini-speeches. For example, ROBERT DENIRO spoke about Sean Penn's performance, SHIRLEY MACLAINE talked about ANNE HATHAWAY, WHOOPI GOLDBERG discussed AMY ADAMS, and KEVIN KLINE described Heath Ledger.

Other tidbits:

--EDDIE MURPHY presented JERRY LEWIS with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award -- fittingly, since Murphy starred in the hit remake of Lewis' classic The Nutty Professor.

--Presenting an award for cinematography with NATALIE PORTMAN, BEN STILLER came out dressed as a spaced-out JOAQUIN PHOENIX, in dark glasses and a huge bushy beard. Portman told Stiller he looked like an escapee from a "Hasidic meth lab," while Stiller said he wanted to "retire from being a funny guy."

--When ALAN ARKIN was talking about PHILLIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN's performance in "Doubt," he accidentally called him "Seymour Phillip Hoffman."

--Man on Wire, a movie about PHILIPPE PETIT, who tightrope-walked between the World Trade Center towers in the early '70s, was named Best Documentary. At the podium, Petit balanced the Oscar statuette on his chin, upside down.

--When JACK BLACK and JENNIFER ANISTON presented the animation awards, the camera kept cutting to ANGELINA JOLIE. We hope that was because Jolie was Jack Black's co-star in Kung Fu Panda, and not because Jolie is now with Aniston's ex BRAD PITT.

--The star who got the biggest applause during the annual "In Memoriam" montage was, perhaps not surprisingly, PAUL NEWMAN.

--The three Best Original Song performances were presented in somewhat of a mash-up, with JOHN LEGEND, at one point, singing PETER GABRIEL's nominated song from Wall-E, "Down To Earth," simultaneously during the performances of the nominated Slumdog Millionaire songs "Jai Ho" and "O Saya."

AND IF THAT recap was not enough: lets break it down winner by winner:

Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner at last night's 81st Annual Academy Awards.

Taylor also made history in the U.S. on Friday becoming the first artist to debut at number one on CMT's Top 20 Countdown. Her "White Horse" clip was the one to pull off that feat; it's also the biggest debut ever on

While in London last week, Taylor filmed her reaction when she first saw the Rolling Stone magazine with her face on the cover. Even though she's sold tons of records and been on countless magazine covers, Taylor truly freaked out when she saw the Rolling Stone issue and laughed when she saw the caption on the cover -- "Taylor Swift: Secrets of a Good Girl

Greetings Bloggers!!!

WOW we have to TALK Oscars!?!?! Don't we? They are this SUNDAY remember....

HUGH JACKMAN will host the 81st Annual Academy Awards this Sunday, live from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. Though the presenters for the event will remain a mystery until showtime, Jackman has already revealed that he'll be delivering a bit of song and dance during the ceremony, which airs on ABC beginning at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Which film will win the best picture Oscar on Sunday? The final answer could be Slumdog Millionaire, the darling of the awards season to date. The tale of an orphan who becomes a contestant on India's version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and is suspected of cheating enters the ceremony with 10 nominations. Slumdog Millionaire will contend for best picture along with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which has a leading 13 nominations, as well as Frost/Nixon, Milk and The Reader.

Those movies are well represented in the best actor and actress categories. Las Vegas oddsmaker JOHN AVELLO believes Milk star SEAN PENN and The Wrestler actor MICKEY ROURKE are the frontrunners to win the best actor Oscar. Their competition includes BRAD PITT, for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; RICHARD JENKINS, for The Visitor; and FRANK LANGELLA, for Frost/Nixon.

KATE WINSLET will make a bid for her first Oscar in six tries, for her performance in The Reader. However, she's competing against some other notable names in the best actress category: ANGELINA JOLIE, for Changeling; ANNE HATHAWAY, for Rachel Getting Married; MERYL STREEP, for Doubt; and MELISSA LEO, for Frozen River. If Winslet loses, she'll tie the record for most nominations by an actress without a win.

The other major story line is whether the late HEATH LEDGER will become the second actor to win a posthumous Oscar. He's considered the favorite to take the best supporting actor prize for playing the Joker in The Dark Knight. So far, PETER FINCH is the only actor to receive a posthumous Oscar, for his work in the 1976 film Network. Thus sayuthhhh the folks from ABC!

This am I talked about POP star Rihanna getting beaten up supposedly by boyfriend Chris Brown. I talked about earlier last year mean nasty 'Chris Brown' sang with Tim McGraw:
R&B/pop superstar Chris Brown is testing his country crossover abilities with help from Tim McGraw. The two have recorded a song together called 'Human.'
"It's incredible," Brown tells Billboard. "I wanted to do something more along the country line. That's a bigger and different audience for me."
McGraw has already expanded his audience outside the country world. He recorded a hit song with R&B star Nelly, 'Over and Over,' in 2005. He also wrote and recorded the song 'Nine Lives' with hard rockers Def Leppard this year. Remember Tim did a tune with Nelly a while back too check it out here:

Now we have news that someone from the L.A. P.D. leaked a picture of miss Rihanna! OUCH can you say lawsuit and jail time? All of this info came form TMZ: TMZ has obtained a photo of Rihanna taken after Chris Brown allegedly beat her...the picture below...

Now there are reports that Chris Brown, the idiot, did not do anything. RIGHT! There are also people saying that he has already apologized to hurting his 'then' girlfriend. Most of this started before the Grammy's in L.A. The biggest dish is that he has acted violent in the past, in his relationships. AGAIN this is all up for speculation, and nothing other than this picture has been confirmed or been cast out on record. If indeed it was Chris, the idiot, then I wish and hope to god his music career is over, and he is cast off his record label. People like this who beat and hurt women have no business drawing breath in my humble opinion!! And from the earlier report mentioned above I truly hope Tim McGraw does not record anything with this maggot ever again!

Greetings BLOGGERS!

K, lets break that word down shall we? 'Hump Day' or Wednesday if you will!

The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English language Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the English god Woden (Wodan) who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century. Wēdnes dæg is like the Old Norse Oðinsdagr ("Odin's day"), which is an early translation of the Latin dies Mercurii ("Mercury's day"), and reflects the widespread association of Woden with Mercury going back to Tacitus.

In Romance languages it is derived from the name of the Roman god Mercury: mercredi (French), mercoledì (Italian), miércoles (Spanish), miercuri (Romanian), dimecres (Catalan), dies Mercurii (Latin). Similarly, in most of the Indian Languages the name for Wednesday, Buddhavar is derived from the Vedic name for Mercury, Buddha. Buddh is also used in Urdu. Russian does not use pagan names but instead uses sredá, meaning "middle," similar to the German Mittwoch. Likewise, Portuguese uses the word quarta-feira, meaning "fourth day" (literally it means "fourth fair", that comes from the latin "feria quarta" - "feria" original meaning is "celebration" - it was so the fourth day of celebration of the week, because all days were days of celebrating God (the name was created by Pope Silvester I, christian leader between 314-335AD). While in Greek the word is Tetarti(Τετάρτη) meaning simply "Fourth."

Position in the week

When Sunday is taken as the first of every week, the day in the middle of each week is Wednesday. Arising from this, the German name for Wednesday has been Mittwoch (literally: "mid-week") since the 10th Century, having displaced the former name: Wodanstag ("Wodan's day"). The Finnish name is similar: Keskiviikko (literally: "middle of the week") as is the Icelandic name: Miðvikudagur ("Mid-week day"). Wednesday is "sereda" in Ukrainian, which has the same word base as "seredyna", which is translated as "middle". In Russian Wednesday is "sreda" / "среда" from "sred'" / "средь" almost identical to Ukrainian meaning the same thing - in the middle.

Wednesday is also in the middle of the common Western 5-day workweek that starts on Monday and finishes on Friday.

See don't cha just feel smarter???

Considered by the 58-year-old to be symbol of luck and prosperity, his ear-hair has been growing since he was 18 and has never been cut. Maintained by a specially prepared blend of herbal shampoo, Baijpai has so far resisted the pleas of his wife to cut it off. ICK.....

Hang, on I can't type....I just threw up in my mouth! BLASSSCH!

And yes, just when you thought we could not talk about anymore tv, remember....At 11:59pm last night (Tuesday), more than one-third of full-power television broadcasters in the U.S. were no longer transmitting an analog signal. A total of 641 stations decided to go all-digital at some point yesterday (February 17), the original date of the digital transition. Congress has postponed the switch until June 12, fearing too many viewers aren't prepared. Despite the delay, the FCC granted requests on a case-by-case basis to broadcasters who wanted to pull the plug sooner.

... It's difficult to estimate how many viewers will be left without TV after Tuesday's switch, but industry experts put the number at around 5% of all homes.


The Writers Guild of America is getting out picket signs again. The guild will protest today's (Wednesday) live telecast of American Idol, calling on its producer to "treat its 'reality' TV writers and other workers with respect by improving working conditions and providing health care and pension benefits."

Michael Johns and Carly Smithson will perform a duet tonight (Wednesday) during the first results-show telecast of American Idol's season 8 semifinals.

Despite his reputation as American Idol's tell-it-like-it-is dream killer, Simon Cowell is popular with the show's past contestants. A new report reveals Cowell's tough talk earned him the respect of both Carrie Underwood and David Cook. Carrie says, "I think it's really good that somebody will give you a dose of reality even if it might be said in a harsh manner. I can think of nicer ways to say things than he tells (contestants), but it's nice that he's got a very strong opinion and he does voice it." As for Cook, he considers Cowell the best judge on the talent panel, but he didn’t always feel that way. Cook recalls, "As soon as I took a step back and realized that everything he said was constructive, as mean as it might be, we got along fine."

This morning I blathered on about our current recession despite the most recent efforts of President and the new stimulus bill he signed in Denver. I did a little research last night and FOUND some pretty amazing things that are still working out for Americans despite the recession:

THE UPSIDE TO THE RECESSION points out that there are some good things about the recession:

Better customer service
Gone are the days, it would seem, that companies don’t have to work for your patronage. Many businesses, particularly banks, have noted an increase in customer satisfaction scores in the previous few months. And why is that? Well, as firms struggle for survival and scramble to regain the trust of the public, executives have placed the emphasis back where it should be: on keeping the customer happy. If you haven’t already, you should soon notice an improvement in customer service and much more attentive staff in shops, which is a definite silver lining to the recession.

Great travel deals
The tourism industry was one of the first to feel the devastating effects of the recession. Bucking the trend, however, are local and small-scale tourism outfits who offer great value for those looking to tighten their belts. If you can’t afford a trip to the Maldives this year, why not look at some of the B&B offers right in your own backyard? And by supporting your local economy, you’ll feel that you’re doing your part to inject a bit of your very own fiscal stimulus. And who knows -- thanks to this silver lining to the recession, you might even find that everything you needed was right under your nose to begin with.

Lower interest rates
National interest rates are now at an all-time low, which clearly has major benefits for many of us. You might not be able to get a mortgage as the credit crunch continues, but if you’ve already got one, then your monthly payments are bound to get smaller during this economic slump -- provided that you’re not on a fixed-rate mortgage. Now that the banks are bowing to government pressure to pass on these savings, those of us with tracker and variable mortgages can appreciate up to hundreds of dollars of savings a month -- a silver lining to the recession for us all.

Surge in public creativity
When times are tough, people want to forget all the gloominess and often look to pop culture for a form of escape. What we get, then, is the arrival of fresh and new forms of entertainment during periods of economic crisis. The Great Depression of the '30s saw the advent of the detective novel and comic books, and it was also around this time that Hollywood experienced its first real golden age. Perhaps this recession will trigger a new wave of creativity, a silver lining to the recession for sure, and very soon we’ll all have better movies to watch and books to read.

Cheaper booze
You might not see “drowning your sorrows” as a productive countermeasure to the economic hardships we’re enduring, but there’s no denying the benefits of lower prices of drinks in bars and clubs -- after all, we still need to enjoy ourselves. British newspapers have even been talking about the return of the £1 pint, a pricing phenomenon that hasn’t occurred since the late '80s.

Return to a real economy
Now that the recession is officially underway, there is no shortage of accusations and finger-pointing. One good thing that is sure to come out of all this, however, is a shift toward a more authentic economy, based on real things built by people with real ideas. You can wave goodbye to the Wall Street asshole who, for all the trouble he’s caused, won’t have a place in this new economic order.

New opportunities
If you’re one of the many unfortunate people who have lost your job, you may find it difficult to see anything remotely positive coming out of these times. However, for every person in despair at a job loss, there’s another who sees it as an opportunity to reexamine what he’s been doing and discover the silver lining to the recession. The option to pursue new projects and acquire new skills has never been so apparent, and now people can get down to what they would be doing if they weren’t constricted by their day-to-day obligations.

Ladies Home Journal Predictions.....this blew my mind...where do you come up with this stuff;

This week (February 16) marks the anniversary when The Ladies Home Journal first hit newsstands. In the December 1900 issue, the Journal had ran an article making predictions for the 21st century.

The American will be taller by one to two inches. His increase of stature will result from better health, due to vast reforms in medicine, sanitation, food and athletics. He will live fifty years instead of thirty-five as at present – for he will reside in the suburbs. The city house will practically be no more. Building in blocks will be illegal. The trip from suburban home to office will require a few minutes only. A penny will pay the fare.

Gymnastics will begin in the nursery, where toys and games will be designed to strengthen the muscles. Exercise will be compulsory in the schools. Every school, college and community will have a complete gymnasium. All cities will have public gymnasiums. A man or woman unable to walk ten miles at a stretch will be regarded as a weakling.

There will be no street cars in our large cities. All hurry traffic will be below or high above ground when brought within city limits. In most cities it will be confined to broad subways or tunnels, well lighted and well ventilated, or to high trestles with “moving-sidewalk” stairways leading to the top. Cities, therefore, will be free from all noises.

Automobiles will be cheaper than horses are today. Farmers will own automobile hay-wagons, automobile truck-wagons, plows, harrows and hay-rakes. A one-pound motor in one of these vehicles will do the work of a pair of horses or more. Children will ride in automobile sleighs in winter. The horse in harness will be as scarce, if, indeed, not even scarcer, then as the yoked ox is today.

Photographs will be telegraphed from any distance. If there be a battle in China a hundred years hence snapshots of its most striking events will be published in the newspapers an hour later. Photographs will reproduce all of nature’s colors.

Man will see around the world. Persons and things of all kinds will be brought within focus of cameras connected electrically with screens at opposite ends of circuits, thousands of miles at a span. The instrument bringing these distant scenes to the very doors of people will be connected with a giant telephone apparatus transmitting each incidental sound in its appropriate place. Thus the guns of a distant battle will be heard to boom when seen to blaze, and thus the lips of a remote actor or singer will be heard to utter words or music when seen to move.

No mosquitoes nor flies. Insect screens will be unnecessary. Mosquitoes, house-flies and roaches will have been practically exterminated.

Peas as large as beets. Strawberries as large as apples. Melons, cherries, grapes, plums, apples, pears, peaches and all berries will be seedless. Roses will be as large as cabbage heads. It will be possible to grow any flower in any color and to transfer the perfume of a scented flower to another which is odorless.

There will be No C, X or Q in our every-day alphabet. They will be abandoned because they are unnecessary. Spelling by sound will have been adopted, first by the newspapers. English will be a language of condensed words expressing condensed ideas, and will be more extensively spoken than any other. Russian will rank second.

A university education will be free to every man and woman. Time will be saved by grouping like studies. Medical inspectors regularly visiting the public schools will furnish poor children free eyeglasses, free dentistry and free medical attention of every kind. Etiquette and housekeeping will be important studies in the public schools.

Coal will not be used for heating or cooking. It will be scarce, but not entirely exhausted. The earth’s hard coal will last until the year 2050 or 2100. Man will have found electricity manufactured by water power to be much cheaper.

Hot or cold air will be turned on from spigots to regulate the temperature of a house as we now turn on hot or cold water from spigots to regulate the temperature of the bath.

Pneumatic tubes, instead of store wagons, will deliver packages and bundles. These tubes will collect, deliver and transport mail over certain distances, perhaps for hundreds of miles. They will at first connect with the private houses of the wealthy; then with all homes.

Ready-cooked meals will be bought from establishments similar to our bakeries of today. Food will be served hot or cold to private houses in pneumatic tubes or automobile wagons. The meal being over, the dishes used will be packed and returned to the cooking establishments where they will be washed.

Few drugs will be swallowed or taken into the stomach unless needed for the direct treatment of that organ itself. Drugs needed by the lungs, for instance, will be applied directly to those organs through the skin and flesh. They will be carried with the electric current applied without pain to the outside skin of the body.

Something to think about....

Also ladies....the stuf fyou guys can come up with is sometimes fascinating to me, more from womans health.....

5 Foods for Healthier Skin (by Leslie Baumann, M.D.)

1. Fish: Fatty fish like salmon, tilapia, and cod are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. And that's a good thing, because our bodies cannot produce those essential lipids naturally. By adding omega-3s to your diet, though, you can bolster your skin barrier - that is, the layer of lipids that holds onto moisture and keeps irritants out.
2. Green Tea: It's inexpensive, easy to add to your routine, and one of the best-researched and most powerful antioxidants around. That's why green tea is my go-to antioxidant: I drink at least three cups a day to fight aging and inflammation. Some studies even suggest that the antioxidants in green tea reduce one's risk of skin cancer. So put down that soda and start drinking your way to healthier skin!
3. Broccoli: Rich in vitamins A, C, and K (among many other nutrients), this veggie does more than its fair share of nutritional work. Vitamin A decreases oil production, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, and vitamin K can help prevent bruises. So whatever ails you, this green wonderfood might be just what the doctor ordered.
4. Safflower or Sunflower Oil: Omega-3s get a lot more talk, but omega-6 fatty acids - like the linoleic acid in these two oils - are also important for healthy skin. Like omega-3s, they help prevent dry skin and inflammation; they're also essential for the formation of prostaglandins, hormones that keep all the cells of the body functioning well.
5. Almonds: When it comes to boosting skin's defenses against aging, inflammation, and even skin cancer, antioxidants are so important that I'm going to add another to my list: A handful of almonds every day boosts your levels of vitamin E, one of the most important antioxidants for skin health. Studies also suggest that consuming vitamin E orally can increase the levels of this moisturizing vitamin on your skin's surface - great news for anyone prone to dry skin.

Ok seriously i might try this kinda stuff. Because afterall who wants to looks like a 90 year old man at 30 or 40, right?

Ok ladies, we covered you guys wel, correct more Wingnut research about what MEN want on V-day? Seruiously this might give you some ideas from my hear earned internet research and a tad bit of me thrown in to make things fair right? I found this from the YAHOO people, they rock!

With Valentine's Day coming up, it seems like all you hear about is what women want from men on the "hearty" day. But what about what men want? I found this article from Yahoo Personals that might be of help called, "7 Things Men Really Find Romantic:"

1. Dress Up for Him - Consider dressing for his tastes and not just yours once in a while, take him shopping and have him choose outfits he would like to see you in. Remember, you're doing this for him, not for you.
2. Initiate Physical Affection - Whether you're playing footsie under the table or placing a hand on our shoulders while scooting behind our chairs, men find the touch of the woman they love unbelievably reassuring. In our treasured nonverbal language, it translates as: "I accept you... I love you... We're a team."
3. Give Him a Night Out with the Boys -- No Strings Attached It may seem odd to you that a romantic gesture might not involve you at all. But dogs run with dogs, wolves run with wolves, and every so often, guys just have to break away and run with the guys (drooling and howling optional).
4. Tell Him What a Big, Strong Guy He Is - We men are famously incompetent at expressing ourselves verbally... but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate hearing a little praise now and then. In particular, we draw a lot of our identity from our maleness. Nurturing our big-ape fantasies -- me Tarzan, you Jane -- lets us know you value us as males, which is somehow important to the continued production of testosterone.
5. Score Him a Pair of Tickets to the Big Game - Which would you rather receive from your mate: a weekend at a spa or a new set of cookware? The spa is by far the more romantic gift, if only because he doesn't stand to gain anything from it. Gifts that don't benefit the giver are somehow purer because they demonstrate you care only about making your partner happy. So when you're thinking about gifts, try not to think about what you'd like to get him, but what he'd like to receive.
6. Show Interest in His Outside Life - We live in a fast-paced world, and we all know it's easy enough to get wrapped up in our own routines. But finding ways to let a man know you care about all aspects of his life, not just the parts he shares with you, is a great way to show you love the whole man.
7. Tell Him a Secret - Men want to be soul mates, too. Telling him a secret -- symbolically letting him deeper inside you -- demonstrates total trust in him and faith in your relationship. Because you're making yourself vulnerable, it's an incredible bonding experience.

NEWS abused, by WINGNUT

Wal-Mart announced Tuesday it's dropping 800 jobs. So at Wal-Mart, prices are dropping like price-checkers.

Jessica Simpsons is having trouble remembering the words to her songs. Her boyfriend Tony Romo said, "How can you forget the words to songs when you can remember every ingredient on a box of Twinkies?"

I tell ya', the economy is bad. Lay's Potato Chips is making bags with just one chip.

Did you see that U.S. Airways Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger was interviewed for a full hour on 60 Minutes? Actually, it only lasted 15 minutes. The interview was delayed 45 minutes for de-icing.

During his Monday night press conference, President Barack Obama told Americans he didn't come into office "ginned up to spend $800 billion dollars." Apparently, Obama only gets ginned up when he selects vice presidents and makes cabinet appointments.

On Monday, the Senate has moved the stimulus bill closer to a final vote with news reports saying it "squeaked by" with a preliminary vote of 61 "yeas," to 36 Republican "nays." 61 to 36 is squeaking by? I don't know about you...but when the Clippers are down 61-36 at halftime, I go to bed.

As if eight years of failed George Bush strategies weren't enough, Congressional Republicans are still pushing the exact same ideas in opposition to Obama's stimulus plan. It's like last week when ABC finally cancelled "According to Jim," but you still have to deal with it for years in syndication...

Miley Cyrus has issued a second apology for racially insensitive photographs that showed her mocking Asians by intentionally slanting her eyes with her fingers. Asian groups said Miley's first attempt at contrition, "I apologize from the bottom of my achy-breaky heart," sounded a little disingenuous.

A coffee cup used by Tom Cruise in the movie "Valkyrie" is being auctioned in Brazil with a minimum price set at $2,200. It's considered the most expensive coffee cup in the world that wasn't sold by Starbucks.

It's getting more obvious each day how different an Obama/Biden administration is from what a McCain/Palin one might have been. For instance, with Obama/Biden, Elkhart is a town hall meeting in Indiana. With McCain/Palin, "Elkhart" is a recipe.

In Elkhart, Indiana, President Obama held the first genuine presidential town hall meeting in eight years. All of President Bush's were "town-hall-style" meetings, with pre-screened guests, and pre-screened questions. The only time George Bush ever heard people who disagreed with him was when he was tapping our phones.

Senator John McCain made his 68th appearance on the CBS Sunday show, "Face the Nation" this week. I believe the only CBS Sunday show he's appeared on more was "Ed Sullivan."

Speaking from the Senate floor this week, Joe Lieberman said, "Tonight, we're going to do it." For the last time, Joe... We don't like you in that way.

Val Kilmer says he's seriously thinking about running to replace Bill Richardson as Governor of New Mexico. Have you seen photos of Val Kilmer lately? He certainly meets the weight requirement...

In Canada, a 60-year-old woman has given birth to twins. The good news is, in Canada breast feeding in public is legal. The bad news is... waist feeding isn't.

HA HA sorry i crack myself up soemtimes.....

Yahoo had some very cool, yet interesting LOVE QUOTES I had to share, enjoy....


* If music be the food of love, play on. (Shakespeare)
* Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be. (Robert Browning)
* Love is the enchanted dawn of every heart. (Lamartine)
* Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question. (Albert Camus)
* It's not the men in my life that count -- it's the life in my men. (Mae West)
* One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory. (Rita Mae Brown)
* Never judge someone by who he's in love with; judge him by his friends. People fall in love with the most appalling people. Take a cool, appraising glance at his pals. (Cynthia Heimel)
* Love is much nicer to be in than an automobile accident, a tight girdle, a higher tax bracket, or a holding pattern over Philadelphia. (Judith Viorst)
* At the touch of Love every one becomes a poet. (Plato)
* Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the ride worthwhile. (Sean Connery)
* Love doesn't grow on trees like apples in Eden - it's something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too. (Joyce Cary)
* Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it. (Jerome K. Jerome)
* One advantage of marriage, it seems to me, is that when you fall out of love with him, or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until maybe you fall in again. (Judith Viorst)
* Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties. (Jules Renard)
* To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance. (Oscar Wilde)
* It is never too late to fall in love. (Sandy Wilson)
* Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. (Albert Einstein)
* Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely. (Hawkeye from TV's "M*A*S*H")
* We loved with a love that was more than love. (Edgar Allan Poe)
