Pirates of the Caribbean Movie

This movie sales into the theaters and took it by storm. It made $112.5 million from Friday to sunday. Last summer's $135.6 million opening weekend for its predecessor "Dead Man's Chest" did quite a bit better. The third installment of Priates of the Caribbean: At World's End didn't do too bad though with the $112.5 million. It was the fifth biggest three day opening ever. Spider-Man 3 made $151.1 million and Shrek the thirs $121.6 million, both outperforming it, however.

Hayfield Dental Care

There is nothing like a good, experience, well-trained dentist to do your dental work. This site Hayfield Dental Care is the website to check out. My children are all going to be in need of braces and I found by checking out their site that they do orthodontic work right there at their dental offices. They will give you free consultations and then set you up with appointments that will meet with your schedule and the classes of your children so they won't need to miss any unnecessary time from school. They are very pleasant and helpful and explain everything to you that will need to be done. They will also go over the costs as well. I understand that all of the dentists there have a history of zero complaints which is invaluable information to me. I also like it that they are open to emergencies like when one of the girls fell and broke a tooth. The dentists all have advanced or specialty training and are very versatile. You can get any kind of dentistry work done there, even cosmetic. I know this is the place for all my family's dental work from now on.

New Breast Cancer Genes Discovered

Scientists have developed a new technique to identify genes that increase the chance of women developing breast cancer. The hope is that a single blood test will reveal a woman's risk of getting the disease. Researchers say the new technique speeds up gene identification and could mean finding all the genes associated with breast cancer. This development is hugely significant.Two years ago scientists found two genes responsible for breast cancer. Now that they know these search methods are effective, they think that many more breast cancer genes can be found. Wouldn't that be great?

Marriage to Earl Was a Curse

The former nightclub hostess, Jamila M'barek, 45 said she did not marry Anthony Ashley-Cooper for his money. She said she had always been prosperous. Marrying him was a curse. She and her brother, both deny the murder charge, saying the Earl, who had homes in Hove and London was killed during a drunken row. The Earl was reported missing in 2004 and in April 2005, his body was discovered in undergrowth between Nice and Cannes. She says her brother was sick after the fight and forced her to help him put the Earl's body in the boot of his car.

They are the best dealer in America and have competitive prices with a convenient market. A unique investment is gold bullion. Way back in ancient times, the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks realized the value of having gold.

High Salt Diet Link To Ulcer Risk

The bug that causes stomach ulcers may be more likely to cause disease when exposed to high concentrations of salt according to a US team of researchers. There are two genes associated with the potency of Helicobacter pylori and they become more active when alot of salt is present. The American Society for Microbiology conference was presenting with the results. The researchers said research had shown salt was linked to gastric cancer. H pylori lives in the stomach and accounts for up to 90% of duodenal ulcers and up to 80% of gastric ulcers. The bacterium may also increase the rist of gastric cancer.

11 Year Old Kills 1,051 Pound Wild Boar

An 11 Year old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild boar. His father said it weighed in at a staggering l,051 pounds and measured 9 feet, 4 inches. That is from the base of its tail to the tip of its snout. Think hams as big as car tires. If these claims are accurate, this trophy boar would be bigger than Hogzilla, the famous wild hog that grew to seemingly mythical proportions after being killed in south Georgia in 2004. It was thought to weigh 1,000 pounds and measure 12 feet in length. But it was National Geographics experts who unearthed its remains and they believe it actually weighed about 800 pounds and was 8 feet long. This boy killed his first deer at age 5 and was out hunting with his father and two guides on May 3 when he killed Hogzilla II. He shot the animal eight times with a .50 caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point blank shot. He said he was a little bit scared but a bit excited too. And all the time there was the fear that the hog would turn and charge at them. He had just finished 6th grade on the honor roll at Christian Heritage Academy, which is a small private school. Just in case, to be extra safe, his dad and the two guides had high-powered rifles aimed and ready to fire in case the hot with 5-inch tusks decided to charge. It is huge. It measured 54 inches around the head, 74 inches around the shoulders and 11 inches from the eyes to the end of its snout. they are planning to have it made into sausage and think they will probably get 500 to 700 pounds of sausage. The boy said he prefers hunting pheasants to monster pigs. They are a little less dangerous. You think?

Funeral of Jerry Falwell

Thousands attended the funeral of Jerry Falwell who be remembered as a champion of conservative Christian values. He fearlessly galvanized the religious right into a powerful force in American politics. He started as a young preacher in l956 at the Thomas Road Baptist church with ust 35 in attendance at that time. It was an old abandoned soda bottling plant. There were more than 10,000 people attending the funeral, and many were forced into overflow seating.Pat Robertson said Jerry was a champion of the fundamental values that we hold dear. Falwell was outspoken in his condemnation of homosexuality and pornography, and his opposition to abortion led him to get involved in politics. Rev. Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Bill Graham said he had been asked whether he agreed with Falwell. He drew applause when he responded with "Every time he opened the Bible, I agreed with Jerry Falwell". More than 33,000 people had viewed Falwell's body over four days as it lay in repose.

Mob Informant Pleads Guilty

The star witness in the government's case against a dozen alleged chicago mob figures pleaded guilty to taking part in a conspiracy that included 18 murders. James Marcello and Joseph Lombardo are both reputed to be major mob bosses in the Chicago area. They are among the 12 defendants. They, of course, have pleaded not guilty and are being held in custody pending trial. The star witness is being kept under heavy security and admitted that he took part in planning and carrying out 14 of the murders. He expected to be the key witness against his brother and other major mob figures charged in the government's Operation Family Secrets investigation. This investigation was aimed at clearing up old, unsolved gangland killings and bringing down chicago's organized crime family.

Canadian forces Jet Crashes

A Canadian Forces Snowbird jet crashed during a rehearsal for a weekend performance at Malmstrom Air Force Base. It killed the pilot as no one ejected from the single engine jet. The Snowbird pilots had been participating in the practice run in Montans. They were veterans, though they couldn't say exactly how many planes were in the air at the time. During the maneuvers above the base, one plane broke from the formation and crashed. The Snowbirds perform high-speed, low-altitude maneuvers in nine Canadair CT-114 Tutors and are part of the Canadian Air force.,

Jumping Frog Jubilee

Would you believe about 4,000 contestants entered the Calaveras county Fair's annual Jumping Frog Jubilee this year? That is twice as many as last year. But then last year the attendance was low, they thought, because it was rainy weather. But this Sunday it was a sunny day and every one was out to see the frogs jump. Although there was a little disagreement between organizers of the famous frog jumpint contest, that did not keep away thousands of frog wranglers. This was inspired by Mark Twain's tale of a frog jumping contest that was weighted in one gambler's favor when he secretly filled his opponent's frog with buckshot. I think that is funny, but guess it wouldn't be to the guy who lost the contest with his frog full of buckshot. The prizes are as follows: winning owners get a $750 prize or $5,000 if their frog breaks the l986 record of 21 feet 5 3/4 inches set by Rosie the Ribeter.

Allabama Nuclear Plant Shutdown - 2006

In 2006 an overloaded computer network shut down a nuclear reactor in Alabama. It is nine months later and regulators still cannot pinpoint the source of the failure. Since Sept ll, Congress has been concerned that utilities and other high risk facilities might be vulnerable to cyber-attacks because of their reliance on computer networks to control operations.The computer malfunction did not threaten plant safety and they are confident an outside hacker was not responsible. The the House Homeland Security committee urged a boader investigation this week as they feel there are too many unanswered questions. I think this will be an ongoing investigation.

Ice Cream Store

We have a great new ice cream store in town and I have been working there until I had surgery on my hand. Stopped in today and got a large black raspberry shake and a pint of orange sherbet twist, yum yum and put them in the freezer for later. It is the very best soft ice cream for miles around. I also gave my 2 week notice since I will be having more hand surgery on June 7 and will be a month recuperation there and then maybe another month with a hand brace like the one I have now. By that time, summer will be over again, won't it? August is pretty hot though. Once school starts, the kids taper off on the ice cream too.

"Fat Maps"

Did you know that what's on the inside of you is what counts? There are alot of thin people out there that could be in alot of trouble according to the latest article I read. Some doctors now think that the internal fat surrounding vital organs like the liver, heart, or pancreas, which is invisible to the eye, could be as dangerous as the more obvious external at that bulges underneath the skin. Just because you care thin doesn't necessarily mean you are not fat. Since l994, a professor at Imperial college, London and his team have scanned 800 people with MRI machines to create "fat maps" showing where people store fat. It shows that people who maintain their weight through diet rather than exercise are likely to have major deposits of internal fat, even if they are otherwise slim. Scary, isn't it? doctors are now worried that thin people may be lulled into falsely thinking that because they are not overweight, they are healthy. Just because someone is thin doesn't make them immune to diabetes or other risk factors of heart disease. Of the women scanned, as many as 45 percent with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) actually had excessive levels of internal fat. Of the men, 60% had excessive levels of internal fat. Interesting, huh?

Brush Your dog's Teeth

Do you brush your dog's teeth? Does he have awful breath? It could very well be your fault. When your dog is a puppy, you can get him/her used to brushing their teeth by just rubbing your finger over their teeth. They get used to that and then when you introduce the toothbrush, they aren't scared of it. Use a regular dog's toothpaste. I get mine from my veterinarian. You should also take them to the vet once a yyear to have their teeth cleaned and have his mouth checked for broken or abscessed teeth. this can lead to a buildup of odor-causing bacteria too. I use an oral care dog food that has just done wonders for my dog. she is over 8 years old and has clean smelling breath and good teeth. Even the vet seems surprised.

Weighing In

How often do you step on your scale Once a day, once a week, once a month, or never? Well, should you weigh yourself everyday? The latest research says it is fine. Frequent weighing will not make you depressed. They have found no strong evidence to show that stepping on the scale frequently makes women depressed. Actually, daily weighing has been associated with lower body mass index levels in women 40 years or older. It is actually helpful to people who are trying to gain or lose weight. but many experts still believe the average person doesn't need to step on the scale every day. Doing this tends to lead to an over-reliance on the scale and cause you to obsess about your weight. Plus, the scale doesn't tell you if you have gained water weight, fat weight or protein and/or muscle weight. It is best instead to base your weight on how clothes fit and how you feel. You should look in the mirror. If you see less fat, you have less fat. Weight fluctuates and can be misleading. In other words, it helps to get on the scale once a week. You may be expecting too much too soon and judge the true state of your progress too quickly. What's the best advice? Maybe three or four times a week??

Animals Bugging Airplanes

Would you believe that animals are bugging the city airport to the point that they are going to have to install a 7 1/2 mile femce that will cost a million bucks? The Federal Aviation Administration asked the Airport Commission two years ago to have a year-long study done to determine if wildlife posed a danger at the airport. The study which began last June will be completed this month but the verdict is in. The problem is deer and coyotes wandering onto the runways. They also plan to rehabilitate taxiways if more federal funds become available. Sounds like a great idea to me. I want to feel safe when flying into the airport.

Gas Prices

Gas prices keep going up but American's don't seem to be cutting back any. Ours is up to $3.19 a gallon here and we use Ethanol based gas which is cheaper than regular unleaded. For all the complaining, few American drivers have yet to reach the point of cutting back, even though they are paying $3 or more a gallon to fill up their vehicles. The demand for gas is only just starting to level off even as refinery outages and tight supplies have sent pump prices soaring by 43 percent since the end of January. What we need in this country is more refineries and the environmental kooks are putting a stop to that so I hope they are the first ones to walk where they need to go. It is wonderful to protect the environment but a little common sense has to enter into the situation too.

Junk or Treasure?

This is junk week. Everyone throws out the stuff they have been stashing in the garage all year round and thru the winter. Old broken ladders, flower pots, and stuff. We went around for the fun of it and found the cutest end table with very attractive doors on it. It is small so doesn't take up alot of room. I was using two folding wooden tray tables to hold all my printer paper, spare ink cartridges, etc and was able to put alot inside the end table and the rest I keep handy on top and put away those 2 tables, making more room in the office here. It had alot of little worn spots so got out some of those furniture touch up sticks and touched it up and it looks great. So someone's junk became my treasure :0)

Toyota Predicts Flat U.S. Sales

There seems to be higher gas prices, a housing slump and a slowing economy that have tempered consumer spending. This has affected Toyota production sales. Officials of Toyota said that auto sales would probably be flat this year in the key North american market due to this. They beat General Motors corp. in worldwide vehicle production and sales in the first quarter for the first time ever, 440.0 billion yen ($3.67 billion), up 9 percent from 404 billion yen for the same period in the previous year. that doesn't sound too bad too me, does it to you?

Veterans Struggle With college Costs

The GI Bill's buying power is shrinking. An example of this is a man and his son. The father had all his college expenses covered in the mid l970's. His son, though, expects that even with the maximum o $1705 in Monthly GI Bill benefits, he will be saddled with $50,000 in student loans when he graduates. The federal program that once covered nearly the entire cost of a veteran's college expenses continues to fall further behind due to the soaring prices of higher education. The maximum amount a currently enrolled veteran, who served on active duty, can qualify for during a college career is roughly $38,700. For many students that is not nearly enough to pay tuition, room, board and books. The GI Bill also only covers four years so if the veteran goes on, he is on his own. Congress has increased it several times but not nearly enough to keep up with the costs of a college education. Guard members and reservists currently receive a much lower educational benefit. This doesn't seem fair,does it, for those men who are fighting to keep us safe.

Friday Night Fish Fry

Got to the fish fry a little late, but Barb and Herman were still there along with Michelle and her little boy, and Sharon, Barb's friend. Barb is not doing her physical theraphy at home for her knee like she should and she isn't walking like they recommend. She has to go to physical theraphy twice a week for another month and is going back to work the 15th. Herman is going to have a bone density test and then to the arthritis doctor. Doctor wants to see what is going on with his spine. They found out that not only were 2 vertebrae in his neck cracked, but one is broken. The doctor said that isn't as bad as it is a soft bone. I didn't know we had any such thing as a soft bone. He plans to go back to work next week fry Barb is using a cane and think she will be for a long time. Her knee still isn't strong enough in the back but is bending the full degrees. Also, her stroke affected her eyes and she has to have a special lense for one and a new one for the other.


It's the spring season when the Lilacs are in bloom and the whole world smells wonderful from their blooms. They come in several colors. Our neighbors have white, we have a dark blue and at our other home, we used to have a most beautiful light blue. but all of them have the most beautiful smell. I love to bring big bouquets into the house and the whole house smells like lilacs. You haven't lived until you have lived where the lilacs bloom in spring. It is just wonderful. I love them.

Family visit

One of the kids called Monday and asked what we are doing tonight. Of course, we are going to our favorite Mexican Restaurant in a little town nearby as we always do on Wednesday night. They asked what time we eat, and said they will meet us there. Isn't that a nice surprise as they live over two hours away. It is Mother's Day on Sunday so I am sure that this is the occasion. We will both wish each other a Happy Mother's Day as they have two sons that we love dearly. We are looking forward to a great visit with them. We had such a nice visit last night with our oldest son too.

Baby-Teeth decay

It seems that tooth decay in young children's baby teeth is increasing and they are worried about it. It would appear that pre-school children are eating way too much sugar. They are trying to educate parents about the importance of early dental visitss and dental hygiene. Another good thing to give parents is information on good and bad snacks. It is good for kids to drink juice and milk, but they should be more aware of how much sugary or acidic beverages the kids are consuming. It is a problem to have milk or juice on the teeth overnight. Parents can gently clean their baby's gums with a wash cloth and should start tooth brushing as soon as possible. I've always heard it is bad to give a baby a bottle at bedtime and let them drink from it till they go to sleep or wake up and drink more from it during the night. From what I understand, milk will hurt the teeth and cause decay sooner.

And They Call the Wind Mariah

If we didn't have any wind in this state, we wouldn't have any weather at all. We have never seen so many many long hard days of very strong winds blowing everything and everyone about. It is almost dangerous to be on the road. And today we have hard, beating down rain along with it. We checked the rain gauge awhile ago and it was 1/4" and it jumped to 3/4" just like that and it is probably an inch or more by now. It is scaring our little dog, Holly, till she just sits and shakes. She is my shadow. She never leaves my side. About 5:30 this morning, she heard the thunder before I did and she sat on the bed and shook so hard I could hardly go back to sleep. I keep a little gate in front of the bedroom door so she won't roam the house at night and when I take it away, she heads toward the other end of the house where there are less windows and doesn't seem so bad to her I guess. We are very blessed though, that we have not had the tornadoes they have had in Kansas. I just don't know how folks do it when 60% of their town including their homes are blown away, people hurt and killed. It's been a terrible tornado season and it's just gettin a good start, sad to say.

Pella Tulip Festival

The 72nd Tulip Time Festival will be held today, tomorrow and Saturday in Pella, Iowa. This little town of 10,000 welcomes more than 10,000 visitors to its three day celebration. If you have never been there, it is worth the trip. thousands of beautiful tulips are in bloom everywhere. They have a Parade down the main street and bleechers to sit on to watch the Parade. The women wash the street in dutch dress and wooden shoes and it is really neat to see the Queen and her court. One of the best things of all is the wonderful dutch food, pastries, candies and more. The town is very quaint in architecture too. There is much to do. They say they plant more than 100,000 new tulip bulbs every year and import them from the Netherlands. There are activities for every age group. Go and enjoy it. I want to go again too.
