How long are we going to put up with the middle east towelheads? As tensions rise over the hostage standoff between Iran and Britian, fears are rising that this may lead to a disruption in the supply of oil. This is driving oil higher which is driving gas prices higher and the market lower. Just a short time ago, in Atlanta gas was down to a hair under $1.90, a couple days ago I spent $2.60 a gallon. Its our own fault though for not following through on alternative fuels after the crisis in the 70's. Read more here:
I met Ben Stiller and his wife not too long ago and I have to tell you, I walked away not impressed and disappointed. Ben is hillarious in the movies but in real life he is kind of stand offish and certainly thinks he is a big deal. His wife made a point to apologize to my group for his behavior.
I had heard many good things about Citadelle and so I picked up a bottle and gave it a shot. Here is what I found, first smell, very pleasant. Next I took a shot, I noticed a nice spice to it and not overwhelming heat from the alcohol. It is an excellent gin for martini's. For those that are vodka snobs, a real martini is made with gin and not vodka. Mixed in gin and tonic, it is good, though I prefer my gin and tonic to be for of a citrus base like Stellar Gin or Wet Gin. Vodka appeals to the masses largely because it has no taste so it mixes well. Give gin a shot and open yourself up to a whole new realm of flavor. I would rate Citadelle very favorably.
If you want to look more like the old Britney than the new Britney, I'm here to tell you, morning workouts are the ticket. I had read in article that morning workouts boost your metabolism so I gave them a shot and guess what, I have seen substantial results. The theory is, if you work out first thing in the morning you burn more fat as your stomach is empty. The alternative, work out at night and your burning the calories you have eaten during the day. I am no expert but I will tell you I have lost weight in the week since I made the switch. The other major benefits that I have noticed are more energy throughout the day, better, more sound sleep at night, and much better results from cardio. If you can make the switch to morning workouts I highly recommend it. Read more about the benefits of morning workouts here:

Until, I hear different, I don't think there is any question that Joran Van Der Sloot raped and most likely murdered Natalee Holloway of Alabama on her senior trip to Aruba. It has been almost two years now and the small island has been unable to locate her or even determine if there was a crime. I am convinced that Joran's mommy and daddy with the help of others helped in the disposal of Natalee's body. I find this whole family despicable. Definatly boycott Aruba as that whole island is culpable in this girls disappearence. Keep Natalee Holloway and her family in your prayers as the two year anniversary comes up in May. You can always keep up with any case developments at www.scaredmonkeys.com

Here's a collection of entertainment stories from Q100 in Atlanta, click the link below, some poor intern probably had to put it together.
This site www.hotenough.org bills itself as the dating service for the beautiful people. Well, I took a look and these girls are not all that damn hot. The criteria is you are supposed to be atleast an 8 to be voted onto the site. Well, I assumed that meant 8 out of 10 but apparantly it is like 8 out of 100. Go judge for yourself.
While the market continues to slide up and down and is largely flat for the year, one stock Johnson and Johnson seems to have bottomed and leveled off at 60. Stock symbol, JNJ. I like this stock number one because of its price. I think its a value at this level. I also like it because it is so well diversified and lets face it, we all have a johnson and johnson product somewhere in our house. If and when the market falls into recession, johnson and johnson should stand up well as we all will continue to purchase their products as they make necessities. I think Johnson and Johnson has an upside of 10 to 12% over the next six months and possibly as much as 20% in the next year. In the meantime, you can enjoy a 2% dividend. As always do your own research.
My, oh my, how fast the reality stars fall. Kristen as evidenced by the hair net will soon be working your Publix deli. In all seriousness she was apparantly getting lasik surgery. Bitch is blind, no wonder she's with Nick Zano.
Apparantly this happened awhile ago but if you remember on the last season of Run's House on MTV his wife had just gotten pregnant. Well, apparantly the child was born with a defect where the organs are on the outside of the body. Needless to say the little girl could not survive. MTV had the camera's rolling and the next season will deal with how the family copes with this tragic loss.
