Kate Upton - Is the SI 2012 Swimsuit Issue cover model. Need I say anything else about the 19 year old model? Nah didn't think so....
As a public service Cedar Posts is providing the correct link to the real SI Swimsuit photos of Kate Upton and all of the other 2012 swimsuit models which is here.
St. Valentine's Day - Love it or hate it is the big day here. The good news is whether you're Single, Married, In a relationship or Recovering you are not alone.
About Roses - if you can't make time to send at least one to her office this morning, don't I repeat don't take the low road and buy one from the Circle K on the way home. As a true sign the economy may be recovering FTD and 1800Flowers reported that they are unable to fill many orders already placed for delivery today. So your only hope is to jump in the car and make a mad dash to a real florist (the number should be on your cell already) and shop for the real deal.
Hint number two - if it comes with an attached cord it is not a suitable Valentines Day gift. Hint number three - if you're caught off guard by this post noting that today is Valentine's Day, don't offer that you thought today was really "Groundhog Day" again. Finally Cedar Posts is convinced that most women like to hold hands in public, as it plays to their romantic notions of how life should be. If you're that manly man type and this goes against your principals, today is the day to suck it up.
Sue Myrick's Valentine's Day Gift - No telling what is up with Myrick's last minute decision not to seek another term in Congress, an election that she should have won easily.
But Myrick's stepping down is a gift to local news media who will hopefully shift their myopic focus on something besides the 2012 DNC.
Republican Andy Dulin, a Charlotte City Council member, plans to announce for the 9th District seat today according to this morning's Charlotte Observer. Former City Council member Edwin Peacock, and former state Sen. Robert Pittenger are expected to join in the fray.
Mecklenburg commissioner Jim Pendergraph and newcomers Michael Steinberg and Michael Shaffer have already announced for her seat and then there is the confusion over
Republican Dan Barry, the mayor pro tem of Weddington who filed for the 9th District Monday after campaigning for months in the 8th District.
They will likely face Democrat Jennifer Roberts, the former chairwoman of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, who will reportedly join the race Friday.
Whitney Houston - There is nothing quite like an unexpected celebrity death to bring out the strange in media coverage. How else do you explain the around the clock coverage of her death on CNN's Headline News. What was once the go to source for news around the world has de-volved into a crime, gossip and entertainment waste of time.
While Houston's death may be tragic it was no more unexpected than the passing of Micheal Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith, Amy Winehouse and so many others. The human body can only take so much. Then its game over!
