What is in a name??

I have heard lots of talk recently about Spurrier trying to come up with a name for Willy B like he had at U of Fla. We all know "the Swamp" and Spurrier wants to get a name for the field at USC. Well I ask this readership what names do you propose?? Maybe Advice Man can help out on this one? The names I have heard floating around are "the Brice," "the Pit" and "the Den." What do you guys think would be a good and intimidating name for Willy B.?

Wow, that is all I can say

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- A 33-year-old man in northern Malaysia has married a 104-year-old woman, saying mutual respect and friendship had turned to love, a news report said Tuesday.
It was Muhamad Noor Che Musa's first marriage and his wife's 21st, according to The Star newspaper which cited a report in the Malay-language Harian Metro tabloid.
Muhamad, an ex-army serviceman said he found peace and a sense of belonging after meeting Wook Kundor, whom he said he initially sympathized with because she was childless, old and alone, the report said.
"I am not after her money, as she is poor," Muhamad reportedly said. "Before meeting Wook, I never stayed in one place for long."
He said he hoped to help his new bride to master Roman script while she taught him Islamic religious knowledge.
The report did not say if any of Wook's previous 20 husbands are still alive.
Malaysian Muslim men are allowed by their religion to take up to four wives at a time, but reports of women who marry more than once are rare. Muslim women do not practice polygamy.
Malaysia's 26 million population comprises about 60 percent Muslims, almost all ethnic Malays. Large ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities are Buddhists, Hindus or Christians.

This is Water-World....

This is some 'News of the Weird'....My question is "How did he do that?" I am not a fan of Mr. Blaine but his latest stunt is one to watch. below is the article that discusses what he is doing.

David Blaine's latest stunt is spending a week living in a 2.4m acrylic sphere filled with water. The 33-year-old magician, with an oxygen tube in his mouth, slid into his snow globe-like "human aquarium" yesterday at New York's Lincoln Centre.
In a week, he will remove the device and attempt to hold his breath underwater longer than the record of 8 minutes, 58 seconds. He also will try to escape from 67.5 kg of chains and handcuffs during the breath-holding finale on Monday.
"As a kid, I always was obsessed with Houdini," Blaine said yesterday. "I don't think about death, but I am prepared for it."
Blaine said he started training in December, with help from U.S. Navy SEALS. He lost 22.5 kg so his body would require less oxygen.
He will be fed and relieve himself by tubes.

What's 3 billion dollars.....

Well, last Thursday when Microsoft stock fell by little over $3 dollars and it was reported that Microsoft founder/ceo lost 3 billion dollars in that same day due to the stock falling sharply. Could you imagine???? I sure to him that is nothing but to you and I that is HUGE!!! And have no worries he is still the richest man in the world, the 3 billion dollar hit did not even hurt his stride.

More health tips

Well as another milestone approaches this week, my 25th birthday. I figured what better way to celebrate then with a nice frosty beverage. I saw another health tip that might save you a few calories.

Consider beer or wine instead of a frozen drink: A glass of regular beer has 140 calories and a serving of wine has 126 calories, while a strawberry daiquiri has about 300 and a margarita has 340. this will save you 150-200 calories.
