Michael Jordan Getting a Divorce

After 17 years of marriage, Michael Jordan and his wife, Juanita, are divorcing. Mrs. Jordan filed for divorce on Friday."Michael and Juanita Jordan mutually and amicably decided to end their 17 year marriage," the couple said in a statement issued through their lawyers. "A judgment for dissolution of their marriage was entered today. There will be no further statements." Juanita previously filed in January 2002, but withdrew her petition a month later when the couple announced they were attempting a reconciliation. During her last divorce petition, Jordan said attempts to reconcile their marriage had failed and future ones "would be impractical and not in the best interests of the family." This is sad to hear, but they tried. And the sadder truth is that people change and there is nothing you can do about it but just carry on.

Touting my Hometown

I just have to crow a bit. I was born and raised in Waxahachie, Texas, and I am always proud to take any chance I get to brag about what a great place it is. I wrote an article yesterday for AC about The Gingerbread Trail, an annual event held each June in Waxahachie, which is about 25 miles south of Dallas, where tourist from all over the nation come to tour the beautiful Victorian homes in Waxahachie. Going to the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce website to get some details about the trail made me want to post it here for your enjoyment. That is, if you like taking a trip back in time. :)

Ok, I'm Gonna Be Catty Now

When I found out that the star quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Roma, had dumped Jessica Simpson and was now seemingly happily hooked up with Carrie Underwood, and that Jessica was so 'down' that she wouldn't come out of her movie trailer for three days, until her sister, Ashley, (can you say yuk?) had to talk her out, I thought to myself, Jessica is fading. Nick finally got enough of her bimbo self. And I am afraid, even though my son swears that the girl actually has a brain, that he's wrong. Sometimes a cigar is really just a cigar.  But hey, Jessica, even though you look delightful, only the freshest chicken..I mean tuna...gets to be Starkist.

Identity television show is stupid

I posted yesterday that there was a new show coming on that I had seen the previews to and thought I might like, but couldn't remember the name of. Well, it's called Identity and it's totally stupid! I can't believe that Penn the magician would host such a dumb excuse for a game show. Here's the deal. You have about 10 or 15 people standing on a stage and you have to see if you can guess their identity from a list of choices. Yep, that's it. Duh. The Rabbi was dressed like a Rabbi, the Burlesque Dancer was dressed like a Burlesque Dancer, and so on, ad nauseum. I didn't last through half of it. Penn, stick to magic, would ya dude?

What About Bryan

I mentioned this show when I first started watching it and how it immediately hooked me. If you haven't seen it, by all means tune in on Monday nights at 10:00 p.m eastern time. I will bring you up to date to get you started. After being left at the altar, Adam rebounds by marrying a stripper! But it seems like it might actually be love. However, he's up for a partnership at his law firm and having a stripper wife with a sordid past besides is not making him look too good. Meanwhile, Bryan has met a beautiful but tough adversary and possible new lover at his father's real estate firm, where Bryan has gone to work after losing his video game business. That should be enough to get you started. This show is not soap opera material, it's very well acted and more like a new Thirty Something. Check it out!
