Today is Super Bowl Sunday!

Today is the big day for all football fans from around the world. The big game, the Super Bowl. (number 46 if you are counting, and yes, I do remember the first and all since). So a few things for you.

The Patriots and the Giants are set to duke it out tonight. Since I’m from Massachusetts and escaped to Maine, I suppose I should take an interest in the thing if only to keep up with the arm chair quarterbacks at work tomorrow. I will be watching the commercials, though. (VW’s Bark Wars cracks me up!)

While you woof down your nachos, sliders and other heart attack causing fare during this year’s Super Bowl, take a minute between bites to remember our soldiers in Afghanistan, the arm pit of the world. To make their Super Bowl Sunday a hell of a lot better than what an Afghanistan Sunday is usually like, a non-profit organization called Pizzas4Patriots (P4P), started by retired Air Force Master Sgt. Mark Evans, is sending about 10,000 U.S. made pizzas to our troops. Pizzas courtesy of P4P are also sent to the troops for July 4th. 
For the rest of the story about somebody’s much appreciated effort, go here to Debbie Does Drivel.

And face it, what is the Super Bowl without a great bacon picture? (had some prime rib and bacon, among other goodies, for brunch today)

Now, GO GIANTS!!!!

One year ago French Moroccan prostitute Zahia Dehar made headlines after it was claimed she had been paid for sex while underage by three French football stars.

While their lives were shattered by the allegations, 19-year-old Zahia’s fortunes were transformed entirely.

And now, her metamorphosis from call girl turned catwalk queen is complete, as Zahia debuted her lingerie line at Palais Brongniart – the former Paris Stock Exchange – as part of Couture Fashion Week.

Taking to the runway the buxom model showcased some of her own designs, including a petal gown which left little to the imagination.

I just finished reading a terrifying new book about climate change. I learned this:

• Climate change is happening faster than we realize and it will have catastrophic consequences for mankind.
• There’s very little we can do to stop it at this late stage, but we might be able to save ourselves if we immediately take these necessary and drastic steps:

- Increase our reliance on alternative energy sources and stop using so much oil and other carbon-based fuels;
- Adopt energy-efficient practices in all aspects of our lives, however inconvenient;
- Impose punitive taxes on inefficient or polluting activities to discourage them;
- Funnel large sums of money from developed nations like the U.S. to Third World nations;
- In general embrace all environmental causes.

You of course recognize these as the solutions most often recommended to ameliorate the looming crisis of Global Warming. But there’s a little glitch in my narrative. Because although the book I read was indeed about climate change, it wasn’t about Global Warming at all; it was instead about “The Coming of the New Ice Age,” and it isn’t exactly “new” — it was published in 1977.
