Time to Lose My Holiday Weight

I love the Christmas season, but from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day, and even through the college Bowl season it seems like I am eating more and more every year. By the time the 2nd week of January rolls around I feel like I have become an extra half a

Anyways, every year I decide it is time to get into shape and exercise after my long vacation. There really is no other way to feel good than to be in good shape. I have more energy, feel better about how I look, and just have a lot less stress. My fitness regimen has always included weight training as well as aerobic exercise. I kind of skimp on the diet now and then, but building muscle mass as keeping my heart rate up has always been the best way to either lost weight or keep it off. Having a nice metabolism is great because you can eat a lot more things you wouldn't be able to before. At least you can burn the calories off a lot easier.

If you don't have a lot of time there are always some great ways to improve your health just doing everyday things. 10 Practical Tips to Improve Your Health was an article I saw recently and found it to be a good thought process. If you think fitness and health, it is easy to find a few ways everyday to improve them.

Binocular Heaven

Not really much of a question about this. Eagle Optics probably has more great deals on binoculars than any site I have seen. They have just added a Hot Deals page and offer fee financing for some of the higher end products they offer. Also find Spotting Scopes and telescopes for your optical desires. It is the binocular site.

Woman Settles Suit in Flour Condoms Case

Unreal. Not sure what to make of this one. On TV cops sure know what drugs taste like. What kind of training do these guys get?

A woman who was arrested and jailed for three weeks on drug charges for what turned out to be flour-filled condoms has settled a lawsuit against the city for $180,000.

"Under the circumstances, something went terribly wrong," Janet H. Lee's attorney, Jeffrey Ibrahim, said Wednesday. "We're trying to ensure that nothing like that ever happens again."

Those Crazy Bikers

I'm a pretty big fan of people doing crazy things. Nothing better than seeing a guy take a head plant after trying an insane stunt really. Of course when someone actually pulls one off it is even more impressive. is dedicated to wild stories and provocative pictures of riders in action. On top of that you can get advice from other fellow riders about what you should get, how to make your bike better, or just discuss some amazing stunts.

These guys have the right idea. Shock and amaze everyone that sees them. It is no secret that being a stunt crazy fool is the way to get hot females to pawn over you. I mean they like guys that take risks, so there isn't a better way to take risks then by showing off your stunts.

Take a bit of time and browse through the forum until you are comfortable. Then join and get access to more discussion as well as the ability to ask questions, brag about your feats, and make some friends that love the same things you do. At least most of these guys can keep up with your extreme lifestyle and maybe even one up you and present you with future challenges.

Great Magazines for Low Prices

Magazines are a great way to keep informed, and provide generally a more detailed write up on whatever subject you are looking for. Whether you are looking for a way to get in shape, improve your home, or just keep up to date about a current hobby or event, magazines are a great asset to anyone.

Even in the internet age, there is still a place for magazines and their columnists. Generally stories in magazines are much more thought out than anything you can find as an internet press release. The authors tend to take more time as well as research more subjects to give you a detailed discussion on any topic you can imagine in a portable book.

MagsDirect offer the lowest authorized prices on over 1,300 different magazines as well as no sales tax and 100% money back satisfaction guarantee. And if you'd like a suggestion, our well informed representatives are available at 1-800-232-0487 and would be glad to assist you.

Magazines also make a great gift. Something that will last the receiver much longer than a traditional gift and possibly help motivate them to go forward in anything they are looking to do.

Suspected mouse remains found in beans

This is truly disgusting. I don't think I could ever eat beans again after something like this. Well...I probably could because I could eat anything, but these kids have to traumatized for life.

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. - No child became sick, but the thought of finding mouse remains in cooked green beans at a preschool lunch has officials feeling ill.

About half of the Oak Ridge Preschool's 206 students had been served Wednesday when a teacher distributing the meals spotted suspected rodent remains.

Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp., which provides food service management to Oak Ridge and more than 420 other public and private school systems around the country, was investigating, spokeswoman Karen Cutler said Thursday.

"The object has not been identified. There is no confirmation of what the object is until it is tested," Cutler said, noting that the local health department considered the health risk so minor "they declined to come out. They are not going to take any samples or anything."

Coin Collectors and Precious Metal Investors

Monox Deposit Company (MDC)and affiliates have been the leading silver and precious metals investment companies in America for over 30 years. According to their research world demand for silver now exceeds annual production, and has every year since 1990. Above ground stockpiles of silver bullion are low, shrinking rapidly and approaching zero.

What better way to take advantage of the current market by getting a beautiful silver coin.

As an investment product, silver is available in coin or ingot form. Ingots are generally silver ingots of pure bullion cast in a convenient size and shape. Coins have a currency value or they are actually defined as ingots.

Based on the fluctuating stock market, and uncertainty there, one can never have too many tangible investments. Precious metals fall into this category, so take a look and see for yourself if it is something that is right for you in your investment portfolio.

Michigan Wolverines Get Embarrassed

USC destroyed them in every way. As a Wolverine slappy I am embarrassed at the performance. I have so much disgust for Lloyd Carr right now I can't even put it into words. So much for putting up a good fight when you thought you were ousted for the National Championship game.

This trend is starting to get ugly for Carr. Lose to Ohio State. Lose your Bowl game. But, but ,but, Carr won a National Championship in 1997...10 years is plenty long enough to say goddbye. This team just doesn't get ready to play.

Rose Bowl Prediction


Michigan 40
USC 10

Ohio State will lose.
