I want to talk about Costco and their return policy. For those that don't know Costco has an overly generous return policy and you can basically return anything at anytime for any reason and get your money back even on big ticket items like plasma, flat screen televisions. Now, lets talk about the losers that abuse this policy, for one, my sister, my sister bought a flat screen 18 months ago, used it, loved it, then saw recently that 18 months later the same television was a thousand dollars less. Pissed off, at who, who knows, she returned the tv and got a full refund. Now, I will rarely call out my own family members but that is ridiculous and in my book it is stealing. Now, to hear her tell the story, the picture tube has a problem, whether this is true, whether it can be fixed I don't honestly know, though I will say at Thanksgiving the tv worked fine. Make no mistake, because of people like her and maybe you, we all pay higher prices and because of the suspected abuses the policy is set to change in April of this year. Thats right sis, I called you out!
This is a picture of Dallas Austin and the Mayor of Atlanta pictured together at last year's Dallas Austin Fundraiser. Now this is what I like to see, the Mayor of my city, with a convicted druggie. If you remember Dallas was detained in another country earlier this year for having cocaine in his possesion. He looks like he's still probably on the coke. Its all well and good that this loser and I do consider him a loser based solely on the fact the he is a druggie is hosting a fundraiser but I know, I for one, would not give a penny to his charity for fear most of the money would go to his drug dealer. Shirley, rather than hugging and and posing for pictures with a druggie, why don't you get off your ass and do something for Atlanta. My gut feel is your as crooked as former mayor, Bill Campbell, who is now in prison.

When Laguna Beach first came out, I think Lauren was the most likeable person on the show. As time has gone on, much like Britney we have discovered the real Lauren. Like Britney, she is not that bright, her work ethic is questionable on a good day(so far the highlight of her career at Teen Vogue was she lit a candle), her taste in men is drug addicts with crack mouth. All of that said, she is good looking and as this season of "The Hills" progresses I find myself liking Lauren more and more again. She was recently on Seacrest in LA and seemed to have little interest in doing a third season of the hills but I really hope she decides to do it. The drama seems to be back and I like she seems to be kicking or has already kicked that dirty tramp Heidi to the curb. I think Lauren is likable again because the people around her are even less likeable than she is and thats good enough for me. Lauren, here's some free advice, keep looking good, marry rich and do a couple more seasons of the hills. I give the hills two thumbs up this year. The life of a reality "star" and I use that term loosely is short and once the hills is over, your done. No more easy entry to the hot clubs, no more premieres, no more freebies and honey, lets face facts, you don't have much going for you.
How did we go from this just a couple years ago to the bald mess you are today? Now, you might have been a drug addicted whore a couple of years ago but atleast you were a hot drug addicted whore. Over time, we found out you weren't a virgin, you smoked, you did drugs, you weren't as smart as my cat, but you were still hot. Now, your showing your dirty cooch all over town, eating cheetos, looking fatter by the day. And lets not even talk about the kids, you dropped Sean P on his head and actually cracked his skull, then he's flopping around in the backseat and your driving like Toonces from SNL, then you almost drop him in public because your drunk and you don't want to drop your gin n' tonic. What in the world happened? Was Larry Rudolph that damn good at hiding the real you? Did JT make you this mess? Federline? Perez Hilton? You are the new Anna Nicole. You are a mess and not even a hot mess!

If the name were not good enough, the wine is just that damn good. Obviously, from the vineyards of Spain, this is an excellent, inexpensive wine. Excellent with seafood and lighter fare, this is a highly enjoyable wine. I note a very distinct, very pleasant grapefruit taste that myself and my friends thouroughly enjoyed. This wine is somewhat difficult to locate, though Jax in Roswell always carrys it and it is also readily available online and can be shipped to Georgia. The cost is typically $7 to $10 and trust me, this is no disgusting Trader Joe's wine. Whether a novice wine drinker or a wine snob, you too will love this wine. This is the perfect spring or summer wine.
Ferrari Carano Chardonay is one the finest chardonay's I have had the pleasure of drinking in years. Incredibly lucious and smooth, not overly citrus based as so many Chardonay's seem to taste today, more of sumptous vanilla base. The grapes come from Sonoma County and as it should be the wine is aged in oak casks. Available at the finer wine stores in Atlanta like Jax in Roswell or The Wine Store in Alpharetta. The wine is priced in the $30 to $35 range for a standard bottle. In this day of excellent $10/$15 wines, don't overlook Ferrari Carano because of its pricepoint, treat yourself and enjoy and excellent wine.

The weekend is here and you can do a few simple things to improve both your quality of life and your future longevity and health. Number one, always wear your seatbelt. Number two, take a baby aspirin every day, this will not only help protect you from heart attack and stroke but also decrease the adverse affects should you ever have an episode. Number three, take an omega three supplement on a daily basis. The evidence is quite strong and encouraging on the use of Omega 3's. Now, lets be honest, no pill is a cure all but these three things are easily implemented and may go along way in improving your overall health.
Agua Luca is a brazillian rum or what some call a cachaca. It is made from the juice of fresh brazillian sugar cane and then filtered twelve times for smoothness and ultimate drinkability. Agua Luca is still somewhat difficult to find here in Atlanta but the better liquor stores in Atlanta like Jax in Roswell will be happy to order it for you. Now onto my review of Agua Luca, first, like most rums and tequillas, the smell is somewhat unpleasant but when mixed you will not notice any smell at all. In terms of taste, it is quite smooth though I don't recommend this for shots, or straight/on the rocks. I have found it is the perfect rum for an excellent Mojito. The agua luca website is an excellent source for additional drinks and ways to use Agua Luca. I would give Agua Luca an overall grade of very good. It is certainly a worthy addition to any home bar.
Anna Nicole is dead and for some reason it is the top story on every news channel, the lead story in most newspapers, the topic of most blogs and I am certain the front cover of the coming magazine weeklies like People and US Weekly. My question is why? It can be argued the most significant thing she accomplished in her life was taking her clothes off for Playboy. Was she a great mom? Most likely not. It is well documented she had problems with both drugs and alcohol for years and it is hard to be a good parent when you are drunk or otherwise in an altered state. Was she a great philanthropist or humanitarian? To my knowledge she was not. Most of the younger generation knows her from her short lived E reality series where she was inaudible and incoherent 99% of the time. She was married to someone over twice her age and spent the last quarter of her life fighting for his fortune. The last year of her life was spent occupied with questions over who her last child's sperm came from. So again, why is this news at all, let alone the top story? At this point, foul play is not suspected so this is not a criminal case worthy of news coverage. To me, this is a sad reflection on our celebrity obsessed culture, where someone who in many ways was no different than a drug addicted street hooker garners attention over things like Iraq, excessive government spending, Iran, the environment and society's other legitimate problems and issues. As americans, we had better get tuned in to the bigger issues before taxes overwhelm us, we lose more of our basic freedoms and we continue to be pushed toward a government dependent, socialist society. Anna wasted her life, don't waste your own!
