I cannot even imagine what that must be like for the folks who live there and who may never be able to return.

I see that Oprah has made the Entertainment Weekly's "Must List". This is Oprah's 20th season and EW is trying to guess what she will be giving away to her studio audience. To quote EW "Houses? ... Yachts? ... Kidneys?"

- Cover your eyes if you don't want to read about it..........reports say that former OSU runningback Maurice "I want it my way" Clarett will be one of the chosen few cut in the first round by the Denver Broncos. There is no telling what type of football career he would have enjoyed but as I said.........he wanted it his way. Enough said..........
- The Bengals season opener with the Browns is slowly approaching. Our faith still sits with Marvin as we watch the Bengals suffer through the pre-season. Unfortunately, the fans still remember the 1990 seasons vividly..........Who Dey!
- And finally to my pals in Boston who eagerly await the Patriot's opening game.......it will be interesting to see how they get along without Teddy and Charlie. Wait......it shouldn't matter because Tom Brady "is" the team. I am amazed at how he is so resilliant and resistant to injury. All it takes is one full moon crazy defensive lineman to make old Tommy's day........or season. Good luck Patsies!
Thanks to generous government subsidies on petroleum products over there, it has kept the Iraqi cost per gallon at an astonishing rate per gallon. Reports show, however, that fuel in the Arab nations is the lowest worldwide. In fact, Iraqis pay much less for a gallon of regular gasoline than in nearby countries such as Iran (38 cents), Jordan ($1.89) and Syria ($1.74).
My cost at the pump this morning - $2.55 per gallon and that was with a .10 discount because of a grocery store card. Word has it that Americans will not really begin to suffer with the higher costs until the cost per gallon reachs $5.

What a wonderful evening? We have a Cat 5 hurricane spinning around in the Gulf as we speak. Hurricane Katrina.....not near as pretty as most Katrina's that we know.......is headed directly at New Orleans. (or 'Nawlins" for all of you locals) Yikes! Supposedly this is bigger than some of the biggies we have seen in the last 15 years........Andrew and Camille. Well......batten down the hatches, grab yourself a Hurricane and hold on tight! It looks like its going to be a rough night down South.
All this excitement on the day that I begin my very first Blog entry. Yes yes......blogging. Hopefully you have all heard of the newest craze. Its all about speaking your mind whenever you want on whatever you want. Don't worry friends.........I promise this won't be too boring. Just Rita rambling on about whatever Rita wants to ramble on about. Ha! This might be really fun.................
