O.k. so the week is slowly dragging and as of today, we are officially over the half way mark. So why am I so tired? I know why? Because I need a week long vacation…… maybe even two! I just booked me a mini vaca at the beginning of November and hopefully off to Disney World at the end of November. Any plans for anyone else?
Okay, so – people are breaking up and a home wrecker is PG – let’s talk about.
First off, Lee Dewyse is engaged. Te 2010 winner of American Idol, the singer, 25, is engaged to model/actress Jonna Walsh, he tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Breakups: Jessie and Kat VonD – just after she got a tatoo of her exfiance – rumor he was cheating on her, what else is new? Of course, the official story is the commute between her show taping in Chitown and his living in Austin, TX is the reason.
Pregnancy rumors are “floating” around Fantasia Barrino again thanks to new paparazzi photos of the singer frolicking in Barbados with married boyfriend Antwaun Cook, whose own marriage disintegrated last year in the wake of his headline-making affair with the “American Idol” star. The blogosphere swears ‘Tasia’s sporting more than just a “baby bump” in the photos, as the lovers sunbathed and snorkeled on the beach. Dang, has Tas gotten big!
Confused? Me too. First you cannot eat something it’s bad for you. Then, low and behold, it’s okay to eat a little of that, but leave off this stuff. What are you to do? And you think by chosing more veggies, you’re doing better. Some vegetables even get into the act – now! If the economy isn’t grim enough for you, just check out the February issue of the Journal of HortScience, which contains a report on the sorry state of American fruits and veggies. Apparently produce in the U.S. not only tastes worse than it did in your grandparents’ days, it also contains fewer nutrients — at least according to Donald R. Davis, a former research associate with the Biochemical Institute at the University of Texas, Austin. Davis claims the average vegetable found in today’s supermarket is anywhere from 5% to 40% lower in minerals (including magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc) than those harvested just 50 years ago.
