2010 Turkey Awards

2010 Turkey Awards
  I’m one of six kids–Thanksgiving was always a big deal in our family and it has always been one of my favorite holidays.  We always gathered at my Grandparents’ house.  It was a day to savor the smells of my Grandma’s kitchen.  Holiday dinners always included great debates around the dining room table.  Grandma’s dining...

William and Kate: 10 Royal Tidbits You Probably Didn't Want to Know

2010 American Music Awards: Random Thoughts and Observations

Rihanna's barely there outfit left me wondering...her funky-perfect-for-the-front-row-down-low-camera-moves had me convinced she should document them for a "how-to-dance-video".  Any lucky recipient and subsequent master of the moves would surely ensure rockstar status at their upcoming Holiday Office Party.  It's a good thing the girl can sing and dance--because when she opens her mouth to attempt stringing together a thoughtful sentence, it seems twenty pounds of stupid fall out.
I watched last night’s AMAs with very low expectations.  Like most award shows, the lower I set the bar, the greater chance I have to be entertained and enlightened.  Needless to say, the three hours of my life spent watching that I’ll never get back were actually pretty entertaining.  As a bonus, watching last night provides random...
