Two Thumbs up for Captain America!

This 2011 Comic Book Movie is worth the eleven bucks I paid to get in and see it!! The movie takes place during the 1940's, where every able bodied man wanted to enlist in the Army and protect American soil. Chris Evans plays Steve Rogers who wants to be a soldier but is constantly denied because of his size and laundry list of medical problems. Steve later catches the eye of a scientist named Stanley Tucci, who approves him for the army and later performs an experimental procedure transforming Steve from a punk to a hunk. The story line gets interesting as Captain Steve Rogers aka (Mr. Sexy Pants, *Giggle*) comes face to face with his rival, the German Villain, Johann Schmidt played by Hugo Weaving, who is also Stanley Tucci's experiment gone wrong. ( Did you get that?) You know the deal, Hero vs. Villain, battle, saves world and gets girl. Well not quite, Captain Steve Rogers aka. Captain America and the beautiful Peggy played by Hayley Atwell, never really get together but the chemistry is evident and sealed by a very brief kiss. ( Loved Peggy's bright red lips... Hwot!)

For the record, I am sssooo not into these Comic Book Movie re-makes, but I really did enjoy this one. Captain America and my buttery movie popcorn topped off my Sunday just fine.

Planking: The New Craze!

People from all over the world are posting planking pics! This latest Craze has many striking the stiff pose anywhere they can. People are planking at work, on vacation and almost anywhere that they can think of!

What is planking and why are people doing it????

The plank is an actual exercise position designed to strengthen and tighten the ab muscles. Please don't ask me how it worked its way to this because I honestly Don't Know!! But I do know that this new internet craze has become sort of a strange new competition. The trick is to capture your planking pic in a place that's unique and difficult to do.


Beware People!! Planking in odd places can be dangerous. People are raising the stakes on planking!! I have seen pictures of people planking on railings, ledges and even train tracks?!

This past May, a young man from Australia fell to his death by attempting to plank on a balcony railing in a pose similar to this pictured on the right.  At first I thought this whole planking craze was something really funny and entertaining. But of course you know too much of a good thing can go really bad...Please be careful people.

What do you think of this Planking Craze??
Are you Planking???

The Casey Anthony Verdict: If it doesn't fit, you must acquit?!

On, July.5th 2011, Casey Anthony was found not guilty on all murder charges! The jury refused to convict Casey Anthony for the murder of  2 year-old Caylee Marie Anthony. The decision all came down to evidence! "Casey Anthony was found guilty of four counts of lying to law enforcement and could be released from jail as early as Thursday"- ABC News

A little Background info...

Caylee Marie Anthony disappeared in June 2008. The almost 3- year old Caylee touched our hearts as we watched our sets in hope of her safe return. Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, failed to report her child missing and was taken into custody, charged with felony murder. Casey Anthony's strange behavior raised lots of questions. She was the prime suspect and the last to see little Caylee alive.

"In the summer of 2008, Orlando, Fla. toddler Caylee Anthony disappeared, only to be discovered six months later a short distance from her home, her skeletal remains stuffed in plastic bags and her mouth sealed with duct tape. Her mother, Casey Anthony, was charged with the horrific crime after not reporting her daughter missing for a month, and allegedly lying to police"-CBS news

Casey Anthony is pictured at a "hot body"contest just days after her two year-old daughter, Caylee went missing. Does this look like a mother worried about her missing child??

Who killed Caylee Marie Anthony? 
Why did her mother hesitate to report her missing?  
Why would she lie to the police?  
 How did the Verdict make you feel?
