  • How many REAL dollars spent on Farmville?

    Posted by Stacy Cole

    farmville

    A 12 year old boy gets into his savings and also finds his mum's credit card and goes a bit bonkers with it...a grand total of 1400.00 US dollars. 

    Holy cow...I have a feeling this kid will be doing chores for the rest of his life! All on a virtual farm.  Nothing is real....the animals and crops don't have any impact on feeding hungry families...they don't give people jobs...Houston, we have a problem.  Click the link below if you want to read about what this 12-year old got himself into.  OUCH!

  • Pets Change Lives...Young and Old!

    This is a great article from www.peoplepets.com

    pig

    When residents at the SharonBrooke Senior Assisted Residence in Newark, Ohio, head to breakfast each morning, they're greeted by a very special employee: a teacup pig named Roger. Just 5 months old, the little guy came to the facility as a baby, and has been lifting spirits ever since.

    "We wanted to get a house pet for the residents," executive director Amy Twyman tells PEOPLEPets.com. "In doing our research, we realized that teacup pigs weren't just hypoallergenic, but litterbox trained, very clean and a good size — below 35 lbs. What more can you ask for?" Twyman and her staff found Roger in nearby Lancaster, where he was put up for adoption by a woman who could no longer care for him. 

    Now, Roger lives full-time at SharonBrooke. When he's not sleeping in his "great big circle" of an area near the front door, he's walking the halls with residents (on a leash, of course) or roaming free in the fenced-in backyard. The staff helps with his care, but it's the residents who've really raised him so far. "He doesn't need to be on a bottle, but we've kept him on a couple a day because the residents enjoy it so much," Twyman says. They also slip him leftover fruits and veggies that supplement his diet of Shredded Wheat and Cheerios. 

    Home to 118 seniors, the family-owned SharonBrooke Center has been around for 23 years. It's the first assisted living center in the state of Ohio, and houses a movie theater, Wii room, ice cream parlor, aviary(where Roger loves hanging out with the birds) and more. 

    Luckily for Roger — named by residents in honor of the home's owner — not one person has complained about his presence. "Everyone has taken to him — he's the center of attention," laughs Twyman, adding that random passers-by have even popped in to greet the pig. "He's somewhat of a celebrity." 

    So is a second pig on the horizon? "Right now, one is enough," says Twyman. "We're a unique facility, so we needed a unique pet."

  • FINISH THE PLAY!

    Corey Williams, a redshirt freshman pitcher for the Vanderbilt Commodores, suffered a particularly brutal knee injury in a Saturday game against Florida.. Williams' knee was split in two by a hard-hit line drive in the 7th inning. Amazingly, the Vanderbilt southpaw still managed to make a spectacular defensive play despite the crippling injury. COULD YOU DO THAT?  I COULDN'T!

  • YOGA FOR EVERYONE

    Posted by Stacy Cole

    On Tuesday, we will be chatting with Meera Patricia Kerr-a yoga instructor.  A lot of people think yoga is just for rail thin people...it's not.  She has a book (and DVD) out called Big Yoga.  Yoga is something that has helped me personally through stress, pain, and general life.  I am sad when people think it's only for "certain" people.  It's for EVERYONE.  She's joining us on Tuesday morning.  I hope you will, as well! Namaste~

    'Details' Mag Identifies 'Stuff She Does That Turns A Guy Off'

    The ladies at Glamour magazine asked the men at Details magazine what women do to "turn off" a guy. Let's just say that Details didn't leave out a single detail. They created a laundry list of disturbing things women do.

    At the top of their list? Women try to go at "warp speed" in a relationship. The men at Details will admit that guys are often impatient when it comes to getting a woman into the bedroom. But they often regret it, because her response is to start rushing toward commitment. The worst question a guy wants to hear in the bedroom is: "Where are we going with this?" or "What sort of future do you see us having together?"

    Details says if she needs to ask that question, it means she'll very soon be single.  Ouch.

    JESSE JAMES...HITLER POSE?

    And that's not all...

    Some in Hollywood are comparing him to Michael Vick...He's big into dog fighting and one of his "beloved" dogs was killed in a dog fight...good grief.  

    Don't you think there were signs that he had this evil side? It sounds like he had two distinct sides that he showed to certain people.  Ugh.  

    Run Sandra, he isn't going to change his ways, is he? She needs to find herself, get some grief counseling-consider him dead, and MOVE ON!!!

  • SICKEST STORY I'VE SEEN ALL YEAR

    FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The father of a Marine killed in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters was ordered to pay the protesters' appeal costs, his lawyers said Monday.

    On Friday, Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered Snyder to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps. Phelps is the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral in 2006.

    The two-page decision supplied by attorneys for Albert Snyder of York, Pa., offered no details on how the court came to its decision.

    Attorneys also said Snyder is struggling to come up with fees associated with filing a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court.

    The decision adds "insult to injury," said Sean Summers, one of Snyder's lawyers.

    The high court agreed to consider whether the protesters' message is protected by the First Amendment or limited by the competing privacy and religious rights of the mourners.

  • I Hid This Under the Bed

    Yeah...I was a gigantic Prince fan in the 80's.  I had my room painted Purple and it served a double purpose-Prince and the Vikings.  But, being 13-14 years old, Prince was quite a bit scandalous.  So, when I got a new album, I usually pulled the sleeve out (kids-look it up or ask mom or dad) of the album cover and hid the cover under the bed.  I saw through his dirtiness and had an appreciation for the beat and the passion in his music.  Hard to tell mom that when she hears the lyrics...

    My mom was pretty reasonable about such things but Prince was really pushing the limits.  He sang about sex and more sex.  He really didn't sing about drugs...it was all sex.  I think it even opened a discussion between me and my step dad about Little Red Corvette.  The lyrics made my step dad about drive off the road...(My parents always trapped me in the car to talk about the birds and the bees...or Prince and his lyrics) I am not sure I even understand the song now but it certainly got the talk going as we were driving on 494...

    I really wish the cop wouldn't have kicked this kitty.  Obviously, not a cat lover or animal lover...I'm sure the claws hurt but come on...
