Tom Brady’s Bathtub

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t know anything…and that’s anything with a capital “A” about breastfeeding.  But since personal knowledge hasn’t stopped me from commenting before…I thought I’d share this.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen was quoted in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar as saying this:   

“I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breast-feed their babies for six months…Some people here [in the U.S.] think they don’t have to breast-feed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'” she said.

That, of course, isn’t the fun part of the story.  The best part is this quote by Fox News contributor Colleen Cappon:

“What she doesn’t know, is not every mother can relate to a woman who describes labor as “painless,” thanks to meditation, of course. Oh, and did we mention—she gave birth in Tom Brady’s bathtub.”

Oh, and did we mention—she gave birth in Tom Brady’s bathtub.  I mean, seriously!  How grounded in reality can she be?

Love it.

Book dealer and would-be playboy gets 8 years in jail for handling stolen Shakespeare tome

(Personally, I think ol’ Willie would be proud of his motivation…)

From Fox News

LONDON (AP) — An unemployed book dealer has been sentenced to eight years in prison for possessing a stolen first edition of Shakespeare’s plays, described by the judge as a “quintessentially English treasure.”

Raymond Scott was cleared last month of stealing the rare First Folio but found guilty of handling stolen goods and removing stolen property from Britain.

Scott was arrested after he took the 1623 volume to the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington and asked to have it authenticated. It disappeared from Durham University in 1998.

Scott denied the charges and claimed he had found the folio in Cuba.

At Newcastle Crown Court in northeast England on Monday, Judge Richard Lowden told Scott he had tried to use the book to “fund an extremely ludicrous playboy lifestyle.”

Update

Notice anything different?

If you guessed “I got a haircut,” you’re wrong.  Well, actually I did…about a month ago…but nobody noticed.

The real news here is the new site.  After way too many years of being hosted by a less-than-stellar hosting service, I finally kicked them to the curb. 

Unfortunately, they were so bad I wasn’t able to transfer things over in a nice neat little package.  So essentially, I’ve spent the last two days re-posting several years worth of blogs–which is why everything is dated either yesterday or today.  It’s a little frustrating but the content was worth more to me than the date it was posted.  Hopefully you’ll agree.
