I couldn’t resist blogging about this…

April 26th, 2009

I have to tell you that I’ve never attended any of my high school reunions.  A couple of years ago, a friend asked me if I was going to attend an upcoming one and I replied that “I hadn’t lost anything I needed to go back and find at my high school.”

I’m not sure how you feel about this issue (you may/may not have loved high school), but I recently watched a video that was simply hilarious regarding one’sreturn to her family reunion.  Let me know what you think and enjoy.

Why Can’t We Be Friends?

April 19th, 2009

This week’s ARTICLE focuses on foreign policy.  More specifically, what should our country’s role be with other nations that we disagree with or disklike?  Should we talk and work with them? Moreover, should we joke and laugh with them? Should we refuse to talk with them (much like we do with Iran)?

Wasn’t it Sun-tzu, the Chinese Military General, who said “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.  What do you think?

Battery-operated ecstasy!

April 14th, 2009

The title for todays blog refers to electronic cigarettes.  Have you heard about these things? I listened to some commentary this past weekend on them and found it quite intriguing.  Click HERE to read an article about them.  You can also click HERE to watch a video demonstrating their use.

Now I’ll admit I may be way behind on this technology as I’m not a smoker.  If so, give me some feedback on your experience with this battery-operated wonder.  There doesn’t seem to be alot of research into their effect on humans (I’d like to hope any negative effects would pale in comparison to traditional cigs).  Let me know what you think.

Cars, Cash, and Crap

April 6th, 2009

I know you can’t turn on the TV or view the Internet without reading something about the current automotive crises hear in the US.  I’m referring to the “Big 3”; uh, I guess you’d have to call them the “Little 3” now, as they’ve been surpassed by the Asian Automotive Market (Honda, Nissan, and Toyota).

Yeah, we’re currently spending billions (if not trillions) of dollars helping these 3 companies out and may end up spending more (The exception here is Ford Motor Company, which hasn’t taken any money yet) before it’s all said and done with.  The ARTICLE for this weeks adds to the already heated debate on whether or not the government (The People) should be bailing out companies who make bad choices or simply fall victim to a really crappy economy.  What do you think?
