Black and/or Gus

I love the way the News Anchor throws the Script Writer under the bus.  Evidence that newscasters are puppets and are not in touch with the farm communities.  What would have happened if the news report was about a Jersey?

Distractions Lead to Larger Brain Capacities

A resent report stated that people who are distracted during the process of learning large amounts of information stand a better chance of learning, retaining, and dispelling that info.  Research actually says that we can expand our memory capacity with a life of distraction.  If this is the case, Youth Pastors must be the smartest people on earth, with the exception of a few like myself.

Miley/Hannah Writes a Book

According to the Art section of the New York Times, Miley is writing a book about her family. Having dominated cable television and the concert circuit, and coming soon to the cineplex, Miley Cyrus, the 15-year-old star of the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana,” has agreed to write a book about her early life in Tennessee, her move to Los Angeles and the influence of her parents — especially her mother — on her success.

In a seven-figure deal, Disney Book Group acquired the rights to Ms. Cyrus’s book, to be published by the Disney-Hyperion Books imprint in spring 2009, when the Hannah Montana movie is also scheduled for release. Jeanne Mosure, global publisher of Disney Book Group, said the company had already sold 15 million copies of some 60 Hannah Montana-branded titles worldwide, including novelizations and gift books about the show. She said the new book would have an initial print run of one million copies.

“It’s rare that you hear from someone her age that they want to talk about their family,” Ms. Mosure said. “How she sees her family in light of everything that she’s exposed to on a daily basis is pretty incredible.”
