Tea Cups Pigs The Latest Crazy Craze

tYes, it's hard to believe, but Tea Cups Pigs are the latest crazy craze that is sweeping the world. These animals are the size of a tea cup and are not cheap to buy, but that has not slowed the popularity of these things down. When fully grown they will only weigh between 30-60 lbs which is not bad. They also have a life expectancy of 20 years so they do live awhile. When born they are the size of a tea cup and that is where the name comes from.

They also can be litter trained very easily as well. You will probably see these more often as stars and others start breeding them. The bad part is these little things will be bred to death and health problems could come of it. They are cute I will have to admit that. I do not think I ever want them as a pet though, but you never know as more and more people buy them they become more mainstream.

George Michael Continues Downward Spiral

George Michael continues his downward spiral as he was arrested after a crashing a car into a building. The 47-year-old, who was banned for driving for two years in June 2007, was reported to have crashed into a branch of a photography shop near his home in the leafy north London suburb of Hampstead on Sunday.

In 2006, Michael was found slumped over the wheel of his car and in June 2007 was given a two-year driving ban after pleading guilty to driving while unfit. He claimed he was tired and had been taking prescription drugs. It's a shame that Michael does not get it together. He was a talent and it seems that he continues to spiral out of control. Hopefully, he will figure it out soon, but I seriously doubt it.

Pawn Stars Something Everyone Should See

The History Channel every now and then surprises me with some of their programming. Pawn Stars is one of those shows that have been proven to be worth watching. The show profiles Rick Harrison; his father, The Old Man; and his son, Corey, as cameras follow them around their Gold And Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. Some humor is thrown in with the help of Chumlee, Corey's best friend who helps manage the increasingly popular pawn shop.

What makes this show stand out from the crowd is the lessons it teaches. People will bring in things to sell and usually the viewer will get an interesting history lesson in the process. On pawn stars they try to get it for a low price so they can resell it for profit. It's how they use to do it many years ago. On Pawn Stars you will see many items that you probably will never see anywhere else. It's on Monday Nights at 10PM on the History Channel. Check it out it is enjoyable television for a change.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE - Featurette "Newborn Vampire Army"

Twilight Eclipse Only Days Away Are You Ready

Twilight fans have started the countdown as the release of the third movie in the Twilight series Eclipse will hit the theaters on June 30, 2010. This series is not as bad as I thought it would be. In fact I do find myself actually enjoying the movies and this third installment should be an interesting one.  The plot centers around a string of killings and Bella must make a choice between her love Edward and her friendship with Jacob.

Many people like the eclipse book the best out of all of them that was written. I never read them so I cannot really say. I know this series continues to garner great numbers at the box office and this new movie should do very well. My daughter loves the series so I will be checking it out. Eclipse should be an interesting movie and even if your not into vampires you will still find something you like I bet. I know I did with the first two and probably will with this edition as well.

Hail Storm Hits Oklahoma

If you have ever been in a hail storm you know how crazy that can be. In Ohio we do not see a lot of hail storms. Here is a video from a hail storm that hit Oklahoma.

Get Rid Of Ronald McDonald OMG NO!

Yes, can you believe it some people want McDonalds to retire the character Ronald McDonald. The critics say that Ronald McDonald promotes bad eating habits in children and that he should slowing ease into retirement. Luckily. McDonalds CEO Jim Skinner told a room of shareholders that there are no plans at all to retire the character Ronald McDonald.

Ronald McDonald is a good force who is a friend to children. Ronald McDonald charities have raised millions of dollars for various things. People have for years wanted to get rid of Ronald McDonald, but the restaurant chain as resisted the pressure from a variety of groups. Now with children's eating habits getting worse they are coming down on Ronald McDonald. I give McDonalds for standing it's ground and not retiring Ronald McDonald anytime soon.

How Will Robin Hood Fare This Weekend?

The movie Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe comes out this week and for the most part it has been panned by the critics. This never seems though to be the death of a movie. Many movies who have been panned have gone on to do well among moviegoers. Maybe the biggest thing that the Robin Hood movie will deal with is Iron Man 2. Iron Man 2 did very well in the opening week and it will give Robin Hood a run for it's money.

Even though the critics has been rough on the movie it should do fairly well. It has a decent cast and with Russell Crowe leading the way it should do fine. The key will be word of mouth with Robin Hood. If some people really like it and spread the word it could do much better than anyone could imagine. I guess we will have to wait and see how this works out this weekend.

Freddy Krueger Still A Money Maker

The remake of Nightmare On Elm Street scared away the competition this weekend at the box office with a take of 32.2 million dollars. This newest installment should do well for awhile until IronMan2 comes out. The best part for Warner Bros is this filmed really had no top stars and it did not cost a lot to make. Once the run is over DVD sales will come so do not be surprised if Nightmare On Elm Street does 70-75 million when all said and done. Not to bad for a film that did not cost a lot to make.

Movie buffs love scary villains such as Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers and these types of films do well. It did help that there really was not much competition at the theater as well. No matter Freddy Krueger continues to bring in the dollars. It seems we all like a good scare every now and then and this weekend was no exception.

Sandra Bullock Adopts Baby, Kicks Jesse James To The Curb

Sandra Bullock has been quiet, but that does not mean she has not been busy. In People magazine she reveals what she has been up to lately. She has adopted a baby boy which she plans to raise by herself. She has also filed divorce from her husband Jesse James which is really no surprise. Bullock and James filed for adoption together, but Bullock will finalize the adoption by herself. With James out of her life Bullock looks to get on with her life.

You have to give Sandra Bullock after all she has been through the past few months she still puts a smile on. She could have done many different things, but she is a strong woman and you have to tip your hat to her. Besides being a great actress and mom deep down she is a fine human being as well. These days qualities like that are real tough to come by. I hope the best for her and her new baby boy which I am sure really brightens he world up on a daily basis.

Corey Feldman Will Not Be Attending Corey Haim Funeral

Corey Feldman has decided that it is best if he does not attend Corey Haim's funeral. According to him it is going to be a small family affair and he wants to give Haim's family time to grieve. Feldman has indicated he probably will have a service later in about a month. Haim and Feldman were friends, but in recent years had their disagreements and that is a shame. Losing a close friend is never easy especially the way Haim was lost.

Prescription drugs is a growing problem in the United States. More and more people are abusing prescription drugs than ever before. People can buy these drugs through the Internet and the blackmarket. This trend will continue as long as the demand continues to grow. Maybe the death of Corey Haim will be a wakeup call for people, but I seriously doubt it. This problem has been around for the longest time and something needs to be done about it or we will be burying more people who are dying too young.
