I just talked to her best friend. She said that Ang had great ideas, but follow through was not her strong suit, so unfortunately no.
We know she loved Queen and Heart, though :)

I remember when she told us at first and my thinking that maybe there was at least some hope ... until I did some research myself.
It's too bad.
Don't blame yourself. You did all you could do!

I did and it was funny, but Gene was talking about the media picking on him. I don't recall the media picking on him because of his religion ... at least no one in the mainstream. It was talked about for sure.
He was an enigma...a guy who could still occasionally win, with the least true talent, almost as if he had willed it...an NFL mirage...lol...

Being a Nole, I have no love fir Tebow. That being said, I agree with the lical columnist that Jacksonville was stupid not to pick him up. Blaine Gabbert is not a franchise QB. He could nit possibly be in the Jags long term plans. So why not get Tebow? You might not win any more games, but the beloved hometown kid starting at QB? That's gotta put asses in seats an move a crap load of merchandise. No one was goin to the games as it was. What's better? Being a losing team playing for an empty stadium or a losing team making money?

If no less a football expert than Gene Simmons likes Tebow, that's good enough for me! The guy has slept with over 800 women! Not Tebow- Simmons! That's close to Sublime territory. The poster, not the 'group'. Anyway, If Tebow had started for Denver this past SB, at least the Broncos would have had a good reason for losing so bad.

Kids grow up so fast these days!

The teacher has been suspended and may lose her job. I don't agree with that. Due to budget cuts, we're cramming 20 to 30 kindergarteners per classroom with no teacher's aid. Then want to blame the teacher for not doing her job if there's an incident. If a kid asks to go to the bathroom, the teacher can't just stand vigil at the door with a stop watch in her hand. So she turns her back, another kid sneaks in, and they could have had their clothes off within minutes -(I'll agree that hopefully they weren't REALLY having sex, but didn't know how else to describe what they thought they were doing.)- And she reported it immediately. I think the teacher did everything right in this case and hope she will be exonerated.

My sister is a kindergartener teacher with 25 kids, and no aid. She voices this frustration often. A teacher just can't effectively do hizzer job while being pulled in so many directions.

And the bigger issue is how do five year olds even know to get naked and have "sex?" Abuse at home perhaps? The families of these kids should be investigated, as well.

You are absolutely correct...they should have added him, just for the ticketing factor alone....them's his peeps.....even with Gabbert and Henne, bet they draft another QB.......Wonder if they are LA bound, eventually....

With sparkling grapefruit juice, of course! Glad she was able to beat the demons I welcome!

How you been, girl? Busy getting married and divorced I presume! Just kidding! How's the schooling going?

Thank you. That sort of praise means a lot coming from a guy who hasn't slept with any women since his wife left him. Maybe I'll get even more lucky and Ted Nugent will endorse me next.

I don't think I like Jimmy Fallon. I think he's a Johnny Carson wannabe liberal shill.
