College degree worth extra $23,000/year

Where?

Drug addiction...

Rush Limbaugh, you should be ashamed of yourself and I am really irritated by the news saying he apologized after making those nonsensical statements, those lame sentences made after his perverse gesticulations, do not count as an apology in my book! Also, no need to apologize when you obviously meant what you said, you need to learn to exercise decorum and not spew out atrocious comments as you did!
Oh and yeah, you would know if someone was off their medication!

Maddie and David


So Madonna adopted an orphaned baby to give him a life better than most babies born and living with their own biological parents and the media wants to turn that into a bad thing! Shame, shame, shame!
On the news today, after her appearance on Oprah, the talk on the newspaper circuit was about her accent and her roots showing. Madonna happens to like wearing her hair that way, she has never tried to hide that she is not a natural blonde and that is so not a topic of discussion!!!
Again, I have to say that the media is slacking, days, weeks, months are spent on useless information. Do they understand the reasons behind Angie and Maddie's quest to impoverished countries in Africa? Do they understand the awareness that these philanthropic celebrities are trying to draw attention to?
My advice is that these magazines and newspapers and whomever else who likes to make a fuss, should focus on the much bigger picture, the poverty, famine, disease, rape and murder of these innocent people.
In Africa, there are several countries that are being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic among so many other diseases that can easily be avoided if they had the basic necessities of life. There is Darfur and the genocide (view picture inset) and unless "60 Minutes" does a special story, nobody knows what’s going on there!

Geico commercials....

Okay, I love those Geico commercials, at first, that gecko, oh that gecko, yeah, he was my favourite, well, kinda still is. But has anyone seen the one with the caveman; at first, we saw him and his brother at the restaurant getting an apology from the Geico guy and now, the cave dude at the airport, LOL!!! The soundtrack, the look on his face....classic :)
Kudos Geico!

Hysteria....

The other day, my laptop went on the fritz and for the next few days until I got my new one, I went completely bonkers!

I was very emotionally attached to my old laptop, it was a gift from my ex but that was also the reason I needed to replace it, that and the fact that it is quite old - when I took it to get checked, cause I just wanted it fixed initially, the guys there were laughing at me, because it had an infrared port and they did not know what it was when I asked if newer laptops came with both infrared and blue tooth. Also, when I took it in, it would always work and when I bring it back home it would just conk back off, much like my past relationship, touché!

As I called everyone I knew trying to find out which laptop model was the best, I had heard good things about Dell but I was not too thrilled about the wait time, I needed my laptop like yesterday. I liked Toshibas, actually; I can't remember why that dropped off my list, hmmm!
Anyway, I knew I wanted a Mac book pro but with everything I wanted in my new Laptop, I was not quite sure I was ready for the cost and the time it would take to get acclimatized to the new apple environment, which is quite funny because my first experience with computers was with an apple, go figure!

It finally came down to the Sony Vaio, Hewlett-Packard and the cutest Compaq I have ever seen. The Compaq is latchless, that was a huge selling point for me, it was so sleek but it did not have an Intel processor and had a lot less hard drive space than the other two; the HP was 17' had a full keyboard, nice but an HP? I know HP and Compaq are now one but I am not so sure about the quality.

The winner was...ta tara ra....drum roll please...THE SONY VAIO!

The Vaio beat the other two for me because of the 802.11 a/b/g, the only one with all three, built-in camera, fastest 2 duo core processor but I was not too thrilled with the keyboard.
I could not sleep, I went online researching, I called everyone I knew who knew anything about computers and it turns out I made the right choice. Also, turns out that I am quite a geek...I stayed up all night transferring data from my old laptop to the new one with limited assistance, also set up my wireless station, boy am I cute!!!

I love my Sony Vaio!!! Tchuse!!!

Death Of A President...

Why???

Who comes up with this crap? Why in the world or should I say how in the world does someone make a movie about real individuals, living, and call it "fictional." Hello... is it just me or is this completely, outrageously and utterly appalling? Why is this even allowed to happen? Oh, I guess it is fictional since our President is still very much alive, ah, not!!! Stupid idiots!!!! If you want to portray a fictional movie of a murdered anybody, bloody well use fictional names!!!

Do the writers, producers etc of that crazy movie know that in some cultures when one is rumoured to be dead when in fact that person is still very much alive, that fate is immediately transferred to the perpetrators of said rumour!

Seriously, what is the difference between the writer of this movie and the next terrorist out there? Have these people taken a moment to imagine what it feels like watching their death planned on a movie for the whole world to see. I abhor people who do wicked things like this and I hope no one goes to see this very stupid, senseless movie!!!

Shit!!!
