Watching Kelly Thomas’ video was not easy

It took me a while to decide whether I had the stomach to watch the newly released video of Kelly Thomas’ beating.   However, as the day progressed, and I continued seeing more and more posts about the video, it became something I could no longer ignore.

Jennifer Aniston IS sexy

It’s been a while and I didn’t think my December post would be about this, but it seems the men’s world has been a little shaken up with the news of the “Sexiest Woman of All-Time.”  She beat sex icon Marilyn Monroe, the queen of pinups—Betty Paige, 70s angel—Farrah Fawcett and even her ex-husband’s current…

Halloween is Almost Here!

  October is here and what does that mean (besides my birthday being 10 days away)? It means most of you are trying to decide what to be this Halloween.  So before you go on shopping frenzy and hand over $100 to your local costume store, stop and think about— Outfits that can easily be…
