Pole Dancing ... Grizzly Style

Apparently this has been around for awhile, but I just saw it today and think it's a riot!! (I may have to get some old-school Kool & the Gang downloaded to my iTunes.)

Eco Barons ... looks like a good read.

I saw an inteview on Morning Joe with the Eco Baron author, Edward Humes, earlier this week. I'm completely intrigued - not only with the subject matter, but with the beautiful cover image. The mended leaf. So tragic, but inspirational. It's never too late, right? If anyone has read the book, please let me know what you think of it. (Although, I think I'll be hitting the bookstore soon to pick up my own copy.)

By the way, Mr. Humes has received the Pulitzer Prize for his journalism and he's a writer-at-large for Los Angeles magazine. And he does have a blog as well...

Prime Minister Gordon Brown ... Wow!

I'm currently watching MSNBC's coverage of Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown - he is a fantastic speaker. I liked Tony Blair immensely - now it appears I am also a fan of the honorable P.M. Brown. (I'd give you a link to his rousing, inspirational speech, but he's still delivering it...)

The Swear Jar... this is how it would work in my home...

One of my "Facebook" friends posted this link ~ what a hoot!! (And as I posted earlier, you know there is a special place in my heart for bad language...)
