Great Lakes State...

Michigan needs to be renamed as the "Great Weight State" 
after this one...

Michigan baseball park to offer 
4,800-calorie burgers

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Well, at least the salsa is low-cal. The West Michigan Whitecaps, a minor league baseball team, will be offering up major league cholesterol, carbohydrates and calories in an enormous hamburger being added to the menu this year at the Fifth Third Ballpark.

The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips, all on an 8-inch sesame-seed bun.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that anyone who eats the entire 4,800-calorie behemoth in one sitting will receive a special T-shirt.

 Um.... I hope it's an Extra-Large T-shirt!

Star Light...

Star Bright

One star in heaven just got a little brighter.

Natasha Richardson passed away at the age of 45 as a result of her injuries sustained in a fall on a Canadian ski slope.

This statement was released last night...
"Liam Neeson, his sons and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha," the statement said. "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

I am having a hard time with this one...

Thoughts and Prayers...

Actress Natasha Richardson suffered a serious head injury in a skiing accident in Canada on Monday. Richardson, 45, was taken in critical condition to a hospital near the Mont Tremblant ski resort, then transferred to a larger medical center in Montreal. Her husband, Irish actor Liam Neeson, rushed from a movie set in Toronto to be by her side.
What an amazing actress... she has such grace with a hint of old Hollywood. I do hope that this story has a happy outcome...

And now...

The rest of the story.

A radio icon passed away on Saturday. Paul Harvey filled our airwaves at noon every weekday for years. Now that great voice has been silenced at the age of 90.

I will forever remember his parting words each day: This is Paul Harvey... Good Day.
