Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here were are as in olden days,
happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
gather near to us once more.

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Coldplay

The Giants clinch home field advantage in NFC throughout the playoffs. In a tough game against the really good Panther team, the Giants come together and rally behind the good running attack led by Derrick Ward(215 yards) and Brandon Jacobs (87 yards).
Eli Manning also had a good game. He wasn't really great but threw lasers when needed.
Kevin Boss also made big plays. He caught a crucial touchdown.
The Giants' offensive line paved the way for the running backs to run the ball efficiently. The Giants had a total rushing yards of 302. I guess you could say, "what the Panthers do best, the Giants can do it too..".

The Panthers scored touchdowns the first three possession in the ball game. The defense gave up 4 rushing touchdowns to running back DeAngelo Williams.
The Panthers had a chance to win the game in regulation but the swirling wind at Giants Stadium pushed John Kasey's 50-yard field-goal attempt wide left, sparking some more celebratory snow throwing by Giants fans.
"Give them credit," Delhomme said. "They battled back and made the plays they had to. They beat us. That's why this game is so much fun. One is excited. The other is totally devastated. That would be us."

Kelly Slater has already wrapped up his 9Th World Title. He has won 6 out of 11 events this year including the Pipe Masters. Clearly he is the Michael Jordan of surfing, the Wayne Gretzky of surfing or the Lance Armstrong of surfing all wrapped up in one. The guy is like, as they say, fine wine..... he gets better with age.

Kelly won his 6Th Pipeline Master on Friday Dec. 12 on some pretty good waves. Slater has made the Pipeline Masters final 10 out of the 17 times. He has entered the event winning in 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1999 and again on Dec 12th. His 2008 win comes nine years after he last clinched the Pipeline crown in ‘99.

"It’s inexplicable,” Slater said of his win and banner season. “I’m just stoked. I wasn’t even worried about surfing the event, so to surf it and win and get that board (a Gerry Lopez designed surfboard trophy). I’ll cherish that for sure."

I loved reading this article by Stacy Phillips. What she said about saying the phrase "I love you" the same old manner eventually loses its meaning is sadly true. Although I'm no married yet, I think she hit that right on the head so to speak. In her article she shares about what we should do to keep the relationship happy, exciting, sweet and of course still in love. Doing the same things or routine everyday like getting up and taking a shower, getting dressed and kissing your husband or wife on the cheek with a "love you" while on the way out the door gets old and stale.

Stacy has written 8 tips or advice for keeping your relationship like it just started.

Are you about to take that next step in your relationship? Are you really going to propose? Are you really sure about that??? Just think about it for a minute...Please..! Just think about it.............

Are you really considering proposing to that woman who makes your heart beat? If so, then I'm pretty sure you're sure about that decision...=) Well, next step is of course finding that ring that will say how much you love her, that ring that will say "you are one of a kind"... What you want is something that's 30 times more rare than gold. What you want is something that does not tarnish or fade..because as the saying goes, if it fades, so does your love...or at least that's what some women think. They have that "its a sign" thing because it faded or they have that analogy thing related from your faded ring to your relationship...You know what I mean? Anyway, What I'm talking about is Platinum....that's right! It's 30 times more rare than gold...!

I know what you're thinking, "If it's 30 times more rare than gold, is it also 30 times more expensive than gold???" Hey, you answered my question about being really sure about proposing right?!?!.. Look at it this way, its for someone who you're absolutely sure you want to spend the rest of your life with.


By the way, Platinum is not 30 times more expensive than gold. It's more money than gold but not 30 times more...so you can wipe that "shock" off your face.. Platinum is a naturally white metal that will keep its brilliant white luster and will hold those very precious gems securely. How's that for a guarantee. Think about it, a platinum engagemet ring...That has some class to it too. I'm telling you, once your fiancee will see that diamond sitting on platinum, she'll say yes faster than when she begins to gasp and cry....

Good luck...!!!


On Dec. 5, the defending NBA Champs, Boston Celtics were at home battling a good team from the west, the Portland Trailblazers. The Celtics were pretty much in control of the game and enjoying a 25 point lead. However, when the starters were taken out for the bench players to relieve them, Kevin Garnet was not at all pleased when their huge 25 point lead shriveled up to 11 points in the 4Th quarter. During a timeout, Garnet pulled all of those bench players, including the "big baby" and was absolutely steaming. I don't exactly know what Garnet said to his teammates but whatever it is, after the barrage from Garnet, "big baby" went to the end of the bench and was fighting back tears.....such a baby.... hahahaha..!!!

Here's a video for you to watch....

With all of these sites where you can upload videos, music and also have an email account, can also have a blog, Kerchoonz takes it a step further by adding games that you can play. What more could you want from a social network? Well, how about adding your other social networks to Kerchoonz? social networks like Facebook, YouTube, Myspace, Bebo, Friendster and etc. Hows that for taking it a step further?


One unique thing about Kerchoonz also is that when you sign up, you can sign up as just a fan or a listener or you can sign up as a publisher or an artist/band or an industry pro or a label. So regardless of what you do or who you are, people in this community can easily identify you.

Contacting or messaging or emailing the right people is easy.

And also, if you are an artist, and if you upload your music, people can download it for or just stream it but here's the thing, if you sign-up for an ad-revenue agreement, this will allow you to share or have a cut in the revenue generated by the exposure or advertising on the website.

I'm no expert when it comes to something like this but everything I'm saying here is just my personal opinion and what I've noticed and experienced.

I think Women are attracted to:

Sense of Humor

I think this is also one of the characteristic that women look for. If you can make a woman laugh, she will love spending time with you. But men, like me, have to figure out what makes her laugh. Some women laugh on just about anything, or laugh about just the silliest things and some have a "green" sense of humor...meaning those dirty jokes. Making a woman laugh is probably one of the biggest characteristics you can have.

Being responsible

I think this is also one of the characteristic that women look for right away when they meet someone. If you are a guy who does nothing and doesn't take responsibility for anything in your life, whether it be emotionally, physically, mentally and even financially then don't be surprised if she gets turned-off easily.

Being Honest and trustworthy

There's nothing that women hate most of all about men than being a liar. That being said, there's a fine line as to which is acceptable lie or those little lies like what men would say if you're wife or girlfriend asks "Does this dress look good? or Does this make me look fat?" If you don't think the dress looks good, just don't say it...or just say "It looks good, but try the other one, lets see which one looks better...". But on a more serious subject like about your relationship or who you were with or where did you go, or what did you do, being honest goes a long way. If she knows she can trust you, your relationship will be so much better.


Most Women are just not that attracted to brainless idiots. Unfortunately, some women don't mind their men having a "DUH" on their forehead.... You may not be a genius, just don't be stupid.

A collection of cute dogs and what they do when they get sort of confused....

Even before the season started, Plaxico's ankle sprain kept him off the field and missed all of training camp...at least he insist that's the reason why and not the contract dispute with the Giants.

Another incident this season was that Burress was suspended for a game against Seattle on Oct. 5 and fined $117,500 for missing a team meeting and failing to notify the team of his absence. He said he had a family emergency.

He also was fined $45,000 by the NFL for his conduct during an Oct. 19 game against 49ers in which he abused an official and tossed a ball into the stands.

When asked last month in discussing his runs-ins with the team, Burress said, “Like I said, I am human,”. “I have made some mistakes. I haven’t made the best of decisions, I am aware of that, and I am the first one to look myself in the mirror, be honest with myself, and say that.”

Plax started the game last week against the Cardinals but didn't play the rest of the game after the first play. He was also scratched from the line against the Redskins this Sunday due to a hamstring injury but his recent incident......accidentally shooting himself in the right thigh on Friday night and spent the night in the hospital, was an additional reason for him to be unable to play. A team official told The Associated Press that Burress shot himself in a nightclub. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the team was still trying to sort out all the facts.

Tsk Tsk Plax.....

The NY Giants crushes the Baltimore Raven's No. 1 ranked defense in rushing. Brandon Jacobs rushed for 73 yards with 2 TD's while Ahmad Bradshaw and Derrick ward rushed for 96 and 41 yards respectively. The Giants had a total of 210 rushing yards against a defense who only allows less than 70 rushing yards per game. People have said that it would be a tough running against this defense but the Giants hit them and attacked them where they're good at. If that's not "imposing your will" against another team, I don't know what is.

The Giants have a very good offensive line. They very under rated but is now getting the attention. The defense of course needed to be stiff as well... which they were. That's why the Giants are now 9-1 on the season because they are playing together. The Giants did it against tough opponents the previous weeks, they won a tough and grinding game against the Pittsburgh Steelers then won another tough one against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Lets keep winning these games GIANTS!!! and finish strong..! I'm not saying anything about playoffs or anything like that but the GIANTS have to continue what they are doing and not get complacent or get cocky. GO GIANTS....!!!!!

Check this one out.... A giant Golden Orb Weaver spider caught a chestnut-breasted mannikin bird in its web and has it for lunch.. and maybe for dinner or maybe have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for weeks.

The photo was snapped in a backyard in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. That is one big spider! and that is one poor bird. How strong is the web of that spider that a bird could get caught in it and not able to escape?

"Normally they prey on large insects, it's unusual to see one eating a bird," (said head spider keeper Joel Shakespeare at the Australian Reptile Park.)

Mr Shakepeare told ninemsn he had seen golden orb weaver spiders as big as a human hand but the northern species in tropical areas were known to grow larger...

"(The spider) would not eat the whole bird," he told ninemsn.

"It uses its venom to break down the bird for eating and what it leaves is a food parcel," he said.

Have you ever signed up on those dating websites? How do you know that the person who's been matched to you has no criminal history? How do you know that the person who you will be going on date with will not do you harm? Will you compromise your safety just to see if that person is for real or not? You're on a date, and next thing you know the guy puts you in a situation where you could have avoided if the dating site you signed up for has done their homework.

Is there such a dating site? Yes there is. I'm talking about True.com. They are the only dating site who conducts criminal background screenings and Single Certification. They are also the only Internet dating and relationship site that is endorsed by Psychology Today®. Isn't that a relief? Don't tell me that's not a feature that you won't take advantage of. That's why millions of people have signed up on this dating and relationship site. I should mention that a friend of mine has signed up on this site and she tells me that having that criminal screening is what made her decide to try it because she has always been skeptical and scared in meeting men online. Who wouldn't be? Now a days, online predators are on an alltime high, so having such a benefit offered by the site is really the most sensible thing.

Why don't you give it a try? You can search for free. Who knows, True.com might find someone for you.


Before the season started, analysts predicted that the Dallas Cowboys would be the team to beat in the NFC despite losing to the NFL champs New York Giants who beat them in the first round of the playoffs last year. For the first three games of the 20008 season, the analysts seemed to be right on the money however, the mighty Cowboys now have a record of 4-3. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games. They recently got beat by the woeful St. Louis Rams by the score of 34-14. Tony Romo did not play due to a broken pinkie on his throwing arm that he sustained during another loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The "very talented" Cowboys team should have not been beaten so badly. Their previous two losses to the Redskins and the Cardinals, were competitive and hard fought games, but this latest loss to the Rams was about as bad as I have seen them play. Sure, losing Tony Romo is a big blow to your offense, but they have to play through it. They have to come together. The defense only lost Adam "waste of money" Jones because of off-the field incident...again...., but still that's no excuse for giving up 34 points to the Rams. Surely the defense can muster some thing to pump up the "down" offense and give them a chance to win....or atleast make it a close and competitive game..but no, the entire team just fell apart.

Dallas Cowboys..... welcome to third place..! Get it together or your season is going to be over soon...!! Anyway, what do I care, I'm a Giants fan..GO GIANTS!!!!!

I wish I knew about this before I agreed with that contract. You know what I mean right? That contract that you can't cancel for two years? And if you do, you pay a significant amount becuase its a penalty.. And I just purchased that 5 months ago. Talk about getting disappointed. I could have been paying a lot less for my connection right now. I could have spent the money that I would have saved on some new shoes or something. Anyway, I'm writing about Charter now because I'm hoping people won't make the same mistake I did or regret that you didn't find a better deal sooner.

Charter High-Speed® Internet only cost $19.99 a month for 6 months. You read that right..! I could have also got that 3 for 1 payment thing like Verizon FIOS and Optimum Online because Charter also offers that. You get Charter Digital Home™, High-Speed Internet, and Charter Telephone® at $99.97/mo. for 12 months. Now that's a deal..! But there's a catch. The catch is, you can win 1 of 30 laptops when you purchase one of their deals. Well, its actually a catch for us, the costumers. That's right! On their Charter Laptop-a-Day Giveaway, 30 HP Compaq Presario C770US Laptops are up for grabs. And did I mention that after you purchase you will automatically be given a FREE Shell gift card..How's that for a catch?

The first winner will be announced on September 1st, with one winner a day for the rest of the month. So what are you waiting for..? If you're still using a connection that doesn't do your PC justice, then trying out Charter is the way to go.

I don't know if this is what Manny really needs. A fight with Oscar who is taller and bigger and has about a 5"-6" reach advantage. Even though Oscar is older and is towards the end of his career, he is not a knock out waiting to happen, not even close. Oscar fought some of the hardest hitting fighters in world. Oscar went toe to toe with Felix Trinidad and Shane Mosley and he didn't even get seriously hurt. Manny’s power won’t be the same at 147 as it was at 135. Sure, Manny has his advantages like his younger age and Oscar even admitted that Manny is faster than him but I think Oscar is a wily veteran.

I'm still looking forward to a good fight. I'm still picking Manny to win but this fight will probably be one of the toughest test. Manny deserves credit for taking on the challenge that Oscar would not and that is "ducking" WBA welterweight champion Antonio Margarito. Manny has so many physical disadvantages, but he took the fight regardless. Did Manny take this fight because of "Chachingggg..?" I don't know. Maybe...

Oscar on the other hand said that his competitive juices was flowing and made him decide to try to make the bout because “When people started saying, "Manny can beat you," and "Manny can knock you out," and especially when Freddie Roach started saying "Oscar can’t pull the trigger," or "Manny Pacquiao, the fighter I train, can beat you, it started to become a challenge to me,” De La Hoya said. “Now, it’s very personal, especially when Manny Pacquiao beat all the legendary Mexican fighters from Mexico. To me, it’s a challenge.."

"People are talking that Manny Pacquiao can beat me. Well, we’ll see Dec. 6.”

We'll see Oscar...

I can't really give a "look" to a woman because of two things: first, I'm not good looking and second, I'm not good looking. If I do give a woman a look, I'm sure it will come out creepy or weird or just plain "eeewww.." And women will probably just laugh at me. If I were a Brad Pitt or a Tom Cruise, then giving a "look" would make the ladies squeal and faint instead of shriek and laugh. That being said, I do have another side of me that can probably make women go "aawwwwwwww....how cute". I'll just show them my cute face like this...

Ooops! wrong photo..., I meant like this...

Cute huh..?! And when the ladies say that "aaaawwwwww.....", then that means I have their attention. And so they would look at me with a BIG SMILE with their eyes grown wide. So, there's nothing left to do but give a big smile back to them..like this..

After I've done and accomplished those..I'm also pretty sure that the ladies would be all over me. They will be offering me drinks and will be talking to me. I'm sure they will be dancing with me too.. like this..

Dancing with someone is the most non-verbal and non-obvious flirting you can do. But if you want to try your verbal flirting skills, you should first try it out at Ultimate Flirting Championship which is a really fun game and it is created by Extreme Style by VO5.

In the filming of World War Two picture "Valkyrie" in Berlin last year, twelve movie extras were injured on August 19, 2007. A side panel of a period German army truck burst open as it drove around a corner in central Berlin. They suffered broken bones, cuts and bruises and are now seeking damages from Tom Cruise and his production company. How much are they asking for..? $11 million...Yaiks..!

A lawyer for the extras told Reuters Television on Tuesday that witness statements indicated the truck's side panel had not been properly secured.

"Valkyrie" by the way is named after the codename for a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler concocted by senior German military officers during World War Two. Cruise plays ringleader Claus von Stauffenberg.

This is probably why the film's original release date was postponed to December 26 from July 4 this year. Probably not a good movie to watch for the holidays. But who knows, If its a really good movie, it won't matter when the movie is released.

Chef Tafari Campbell from Maryland created this scrumptious and delicious recipe. Just seeing a photo of it makes me hungry. The dish that I think is the best and voted for is called Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots.

In the site, www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com, There were a number of chefs from different parts of the country in which they had a cook off. They had to be creative becuase they had to cook using some mystery ingredients like for example Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co. And then it was narrowed down to five chefs and then we get to vote which one we think is the best. Actually I had a hard time deciding which one to vote for because everything just looked so good. There's Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella by Chef Paul Anders from Colorado, which I think is a really close second. There's also Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet by Chef Brian Landry from Louisiana. Of all the foods, I love sea foods the best. I have previously posted about my favorite food and mentioned that I would rather eat seafood than anything else. The only thing I would change about all of these recipes is that I would add more seafood. I would add lobster tails, jumbo shrimps, scallops and etc. It would probably compromise the taste because of overloaded seafood meat, that's maybe why I'm not a chef because I would just stuff my face with all of the seafood meat that I can get.

Visit the site and vote for your favorite recipe or you download the recipes and cook it yourself and taste how good it is. I've only tried one of these recipes but I kind of screwed it up. I'm not exactly a chef because the only thing I know how to cook is fried stuff..hehehe..! Even when I screwed up the recipe that I tried, it was still good enough...how much more if it was actually cooked and made well. But of course, none of the food you cook will taste great if its not made with fresh ingredients. So stop by your local market and get the freshest produce or seafood available.

Here's the recipe.

Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots.

One of the worst one-liners we have all heard is.. "You know what looks good on me..? YOU..!" Yaiks..!! Talk about one of the worst pick-up lines ever. It makes me cringe when ever I hear that..and it's hard to imagine someone saying that line now a days but believe it or not, someone said that to a really gorgeous woman in a bar that we went to a few months back. Well, the guy was obviously drunk but still, being drunk is no excuse to saying that. The only Victory Hair he'll get is if that lady beat the crap out of him and started slapping him and pulling his hair. He would be getting a LOSER'S HAIR for that matter. I can't imagine myself saying that really lame line..not even if someone paid me..!

To that guy who said that or to some people who needs some practice on those one-liners and to those who want to get a Victory Hair, check out this game created by Extreme Style by VO5 called the Ultimate Flirting Championship. Like I've said in my previous post, you play with actual people. You get some real reactions. I have never laughed so hard when playing a game. When you read the lines that people will say in that game, I'm sure you'll be laughing and saying "Oh my god!" at the same time. But that's OK, people can't see you or see the person saying those lines..so it's all good..just pure fun.

Meet Leryn Franco.

This Olympian is not only a Javelin thrower, but also a hottie. She is a sexy catwalk and photographic model. Although she didn't fair too well in the Olympics, she definitely got some attention. The first time I saw her was in the opening ceremony in Beijing. I thought, "Ooh, who was that..? She's gorgeous.." Well, now I know that I wasn't the only one who noticed her but so did thousands of people who saw her beauty....Hot or not? You be the judge...

The guy is just one that simply puts you in awe. He just game us all something to cheer about whether you're from the United States or not. Getting 8 gold medals in one Olympics is just mind boggling.
There are athletes who will never qualify to be an Olympian. There are Olympians who will never win a medal. There are Olympian medal winners who has never won a gold medal. There are countries who have never won a gold medal. There are Olympic champions. There are Olympic champions who have won multi gold medals..But there is one Olympic champion who has won 14 total gold medals. There is only one Olympic champion who has won 8 gold medals in the same Olympics.

That right there, just puts everything in perspective on how good this guy is and what he has achieved. One that will definitely stand the test of time.

I really didn't know if this one liner would work because its from a movie that caused some controversy but hey, its just the line. So, I tried this line on a game that I have played before..its called Ultimate Flirting Championship. This game was created by Extreme Style by VO5, and I have to tell you, its a pretty creative game and pretty creative idea. If you haven't played this game, you should. This is so much fun because you get to play or FLIRT with actual people. So I tried this line, "I wish I knew how to quit you..." And believe it or not this one liner is a good one. I got some good reactions and responses from it. Do you know what this line is from..? I'll just keep you guessing.
If this line doesn't get you a Victory Hair, I don't know what will..but keep in mind, it only works if you use it in the right way, you can't just blurt it out and expect a lady or a man to be "googoogaagaa" on you..

Play the Ultimate Flirting Championship and see what kind of responses you get. Try out your one liners or famous lines from a movie. If you get a compliment, I'm sure you'll be smiling all day. If it doesn't, then you'll know what not to say in front of real people..right? This game is definitely fun. You never know what that other person will say.

I first heard this song in a Broadway show in New York called Aida. The lyrics is sad. What the song is about is kind of cruel if something like that could happen to some people or somebody but I like it..maybe because I can relate to it. What I have experienced didn't exactly happen like the lyrics in the song but it surely felt that way..like time was cut much too short. It felt like someone up there was being cruel and we were just part of his experiment or it was supposed to happen because we were being tested and what happened, happened for a reason and it was supposed to make me, her or us stronger...but you realy can't help but wonder...Why..?

The particular lines that strike me the most is in bold letters.

Written in the Stars
Composed by: Elton John and Tim Rice

I am here to tell you we can never meet again
Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when
You think of me or speak of me or wonder what befell
The someone you once loved so long ago so well

Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by
You don't have to ask me and I need not reply
Every moment of my life from now until I die
I will think or dream of you and fail to understand
How a perfect love can be confounded out of hand

Is it written in the stars
Are we paying for some crime
Is that all that we are good for
Just a stretch of mortal time

Is this God's experiment
In which we have no say
In which we're given paradise
But only for a day

Nothing can be altered, there is nothing to decide
No escape, no change of heart, no anyplace to hide
You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned
What it is to be in love and have that love returned

Written In The Stars - Elton John & Leann Rimes

I definitely think that teachers, especially in the public schools, are underpaid. I'm not a teacher but I feel that they deserve much more. Considering what they have to put up with in public schools, they not only teach but they are also like the second parents. I have a very high respect for teachers who do actually teach and care about students. However, not all teachers are heroes. Some of them don't really care. Unfortunately, I had the displeasure of being a part of a class who is being "taught" by really horrible teachers.

Without teachers, I don't know where we would all be. That's why I consider teachers one of our modern day heroes. They deserve more..both in respect and salary.

For a moment

I don't really know you..
You don't really know me
I have never even met you
but for a moment,
you made me smile..
For a moment,
you made me think
how happy my life would be
if I had you..
I just read something from you
and Smiling
I know emails may not mean much to you
but for me,
you filled my heart with emotions
even though it was just for a moment..
for that moment,
you made me happy..

After losing to the Angels again today with the score of 3-2, the Yankees find themselves 8 games behind the division leaders Tampa Bay Rays and 4 games behind second place Boston Red Sox.

Here's my question, why did they trade Kyle Farnsworth..?? They were on such a roll right after the All Star break. The Bullpen was pitching lights out. They were winning. But they traded one of their good closers for another catcher Ivan Rodriguez for Farnsworth. Molina was doing a great job catching for the Yanks, so why get another one? Now the Yanks' bullpen has been shaky to say the least. They lost to the Angels on a tied game in the 9th inning. Who lost the game? the bullpen. That's the exact same thing that happened the previous game against the same team. The bullpen just fell apart. It was a close game until the bullpen gave up 8 runs... 8 RUNS in the 8th inning....sigh.....enough rambling about the Yanks.

They might not make it to the playoffs....

“Eat what you want and lose weight!”
“Lose thirty pounds in thirty days!”
“Finally, a diet that really works!”
“Lose one jean size every seven days!”
“Top three fat burners revealed”
“Ten minutes to a tighter tummy!”

Unfortunately, those statements are untrue. The truth is, if a person wants to lose weight, he/she needs to work out more than what is advertised.

A 30 minute of walk doesn't mean you burned the calories of the brownie that you ate. People have these myth that if they walk for 30 minutes, they burned most of the calories that they gained when they ate something that is fattening. Everybody wishes that all of those statements that you read above is that simple to accomplish.

My advice is, make time to work out. If you have time to surf through the Internet, watch TV or talk on the phone, chances are you can have time to work out. If you are not an active person or play sports for example, then you need to work out to get your metabolism going. Yes, it means you have to sacrifice some of your TV staring and your mouse-clicking to make changes in your body. Because at this day and industrial age, everything has been made to make our lives simpler. Well, here is the effect of that..where people not doing enough naturally physically to maintain a good health..and that's why you need to make time to work out.

From the start, China was blazing. They came out with the enthusiasm and fire and excitement that made the first and second quarter of the ball game really interesting and fun to watch but towards the second half, the United States was just too much for China. Too much talent on the floor and the US clamped down on defense.
In the first half of the game, China was hitting a lot of their three point shots but the second half was almost the complete opposite. Great effort for China, but unfortunately their effort was well short of even making it close towards the end of the game. Dwane Wade led the United States with 19 points followed by LeBron James with 18. Up next for the USA is Angola....Hhhmmmmmm...anyone smelling an upset..?

First game on the men's basketball will be the USA against the host country of the Summer Olympics, China. This should be interesting. Chinese are very big basketball fans. They love their center superstar Yao Ming. In my opinion, this game would be like being in a gold medal game and a good "measuring stick" so to speak, for the Chinese National Team. For the Americans, on the other hand, the pressure is on to not lose the first game in their so called "Road to Redemption" in the Olympics.

What would it mean if the United States loses to China? It would definitely be a big boost of confidence for not only the Chinese team but for the entire country. Although it would only be the first game for the US, if they lost, it would be a real blow to their confidence coming into the Olympics. It would a game that they would love to take back and play it again...but of course this is just all speculation...I can't wait for this game.

The Mac man dies at age of 50 due to a condition called sarcoidosis. I just heard the news on TV.. and I'm shocked..! I'm a Bernie Mac fan. Incase you don't know him, he was the black guy in the movie Transformers. He was also in Oceans 11,12,13 and Charlies Angels just to name a few. But he is best known for his ability to make people laugh. A great comedian....I thought he was recovering from that illness since it was reported on Friday.....but now he's dead...Wow...I'm just stunned....RIP Mr. Mac...
My condolence to the Mac Family...

Make god laugh up there will yah...

For some reason I feel like crap today. I feel like not doing anything. I don't feel like going to work. I don't feel like talking to anyone. Maybe I'm currently depressed..If I am depressed, I don't really know why. Maybe I really am depressed. Last night I was watching Everybody Loves Raymond, but never laughed, didn't even smile....I usually laugh, not just laugh but laugh out loud even though the shows are reruns. So there really is something bothering me..

My life is full of disappointments. I don't usually write personal stuff online because guys/men don't really write about how they feel but I don't know...I just have this urge to get these "crap" inside me, out...

Also last night, a few barkadas (meaning good friends) from home sent me text messages, saying that they are going to have a get together and just hang out..maybe have a couple of drinks..I miss those simple things. How I wish I was there. Their text is probably what made me cheer up and smile a little bit. Here's my roaming number..09204401711..send me a text, hit me up or whatever..Just want to have someone to talk to..

Maybe life here is getting to me..I wanna go home..!

Thanks social spark for giving me the opportunity to earn some extra income. But that's not the reason why I made this post. I made this post to thank social spark because I met someone here. Someone who I like talking to. Someone who I'm looking forward to when I open the emails...I'm actually more thankful now that I signed up. Who ever that someone is, thanks for your emails and for your friendship....

Nothing is more popular now a days than online gaming. Why would like to play by yourself if you can play against people around the world? That's definitely more exciting and much more challenging than playing your 8 year old little brother or cousin. For all of you football fans around the world, or soccer fans here in America, this is what you want. If you're a gaming fan too, The football superstars Academy is now open for registration. This game is designed by people who love football/soccer for people who love football/soccer.

I wasn't really a football or soccer fan until I played a video game of it..because playing the actual game is just too much for me. I would love to be a an International Football Star but chances of that happening is next to none. However, in this upcoming virtual game, I think I can be...Even though its just on a video game.

By downloading the game later this year, you can explore the football/soccer game for free. Of course the game wouldn't be fun if you, the gamer, didn't know what to do or how to play it. So, they have provided us with full training instructions. You can't claim that you are the best if you play with just people around you right? So get in the game, and get hooked.

Almost everyone who has watched the movie said it was great. Heath Ledger did such a great Joker that people loved to hate him and felt pity for him at the same time. Batman on the other hand, was talking like he had sore throat. Why is that?? Asked my sister who watched The Dark Knight a few days ago. My cousin, who I talked to on our recent family reunion said, "I liked the movie but the way Batman talked was annoying..I kind of ruined it..".

I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't comment on what they said but based on the previous Batman movie, Batman Begins, I have already noticed that voice thing. I don't know, maybe its worse in this new movie...

On a 3 way deal, the Dodgers get Manny Ramirez. The Red Sox fans get what they wish for. I guess the Red Sox organization are fed up with the future hall of famer that they got rid of him eventhough the push for the playoffs is fast approaching. Could Red Sox have put up for two more months? and give themselves a chance to maybe win another world series? I guess they didn't think Manny would care because he has stated in a recent interview with ESPN Deportes that he is unhappy and that's probably why they got rid of him.

Will Manny be happy in LA? Will he be the more productive Manny of old? I don't know, we don't know..But the Dodgers hope he will be.

Earlier this afternoon, the Marlins were said to be holding a slim chance of pulling off a trade for Manny Ramirez.

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that a tentative three-way deal has been reached between the Red Sox, Marlins and Pirates and after Manny's comments from earlier today, it's not hard to see why Boston might have been forced to commit to a trade that might bring only Pittsburgh's Jason Bay plus unproven prospects in exchange for Ramirez's Hall of Fame talent.

From ESPNDeportes:

"The Red Sox don't deserve a player like me," Ramirez said. "During my years here, I've seen how they [the Red Sox] have mistreated other great players when they didn't want them to try to turn the fans against them.

"The Red Sox did the same with guys like Nomar Garciaparra and Pedro Martinez, and now they do the same with me. Their goal is to paint me as the bad guy," Ramirez added. "I love Boston fans, but the Red Sox don't deserve me. I'm not talking about money. Mental peace has no price, and I don't have peace here."

And based on the comments of some Red Sox fans, apparently what Manny is saying is somewhat true or...the Red Sox fans are just tired of his "Manny being Manny" ways.
Here are some of the comments made by Red Sox fans about Manny..

"Manny could never fill the shoes of carl yazstremski, ted williams or even gene stephens in the hearts of red sox nation. good-bye manny. thanks for the thrills. oh, and before you clean out your locker don't forget the folks on $12,000 yearly incomes who coughed up the money to buy a ticket to watch you make an ass of yourself. you are a disgrace to the red sox uniform and to the human race." - John K.

"yeah they need to trade his crying ass......I love this guy, as a hitter I think he is one of the best, but the whining needs to stop...TRADE HIS ASS!!!!!!!!" - E N

Because of the Olympics, Beijing's architecture is suddenly becoming one of the iconic in the world. Bejing's landscape has changed drastically.

The nest-shaped stadium for the 2008 Olympic games, designed by Piere de Meuron is one of the more interesting, "never been done before" kind of design.

Another is the the dome shaped National Grand Theatre, designed by Paul Andreu.

And the latest of the buildings that are newly built in Beijing is the CCTV or the China Central Television Building designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas. Which to me, is probably the most recognizable of all the buildings. I guess you could this cantilevered, block-formed, looks like unbalanced building will put Beijing on the map..in terms of recognizable architectures. This building is like London's Big Ben or Paris' Eiffel Tower or Sydney's Opera House. When you see this building in a magazine or a newspaper or read about it somewhere, you would automatically say, "Ah..this building is in Beijing..".

The design looks simple because at first glance, its just simple blocks or rectangles that was put together but the truth is, its a complex building in terms of the size how those "blocks or rectangles" are put together. As much as it's a challenge to gravity, the building is a challenge to the mind, critics say, defying conventions of skyscrapers as vertical shafts thrusting straight up. Its engineering is so complex that the designers say such a building couldn't have been built a few years ago. That's because it took immense computing power to ensure that the design could withstand huge pressures in the earthquake-prone capital. Some 10,000 tons of steel were used in its construction.

A very modern design in a place and country where there is a lot of tradition.

A family reunion will be on Aug. 2. I don't know what to expect. I have not seen my relatives who live here in the U.S and Canada for a long time...I'd say about 5 or 6 years now. I'd probably be baby sitting my younger cousins like the usual. Anyway, I don't mind because I have fun playing and messing around with them. Probably piss them off and have try to retaliate all day long. And if they fail, they would just probably get pissed even more.
I know whats coming. I've done it before...like beating them at their own game. Namely being a wise ass, being annoying, and beating them in their video games..hehehe..that's probably why they don't start messing with me. I think I'm the one who instigates the whole thing.

I guess thats how reunions are when you don't have someone your age to talk to or hang around with. Its either old people or uncles or aunties or little cousins.

If I hang around and talk to my grand parents, I get bored. They ask the same questions over and over, they always ask you for something like get me some food or soda or "get my purse" or whatever. If I hang out with my uncles and aunts, they treat me like a little kid and never stop telling me to do stuff. So, I guess the only choice left is messing with my little cousins.

Remember this photo on Nirvana's NEVERMIND album cover?

Almost 17 years later, Spencer Elden who's naked baby photo was on that album cover is now a teen.

"Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis," he says from his home in Los Angeles. "So that's kinda cool. I'm just a normal kid living it up and doing the best I can while I'm here."

Elden's naked participation in this important moment in music history was rather accidental because Kirk Weddle, the photographer working on the cover, was simply a friend of Spencer's dad, Rick.

Elden now has his own band. That's right his own rock band on XBox. "I know that's not a real band! That's the difference between the '90s and kids nowadays; kids in the '90s would actually go out and make a [real] band!," he says. Elden ironically, yearns for the era that gave Kurt Cobain, the lead singer for Nirvana, so much angst. He thinks that time and era was much "cooler" than it is now.

In some places, that image or photo of the album stuck. The other day, his friends spotted a giant Nevermind photo on the floor of a record store in Hollywood.

"My friend is all like, 'Hey I saw you today.' And I'm like, 'Dude, I was working all day.' And he's like, 'No, I went to Geffen Records, and you're on the floor and you're floating and I stepped on your face. 'Cause I guess they have like a floating thing where people can like walk on me and stuff ... so it's kinda cool," he says.
