Quote of the Day
Miami is just really fun whenever I go there. It's like this post-apocalyptic Barbie world: everything is pink, and there're palm trees everywhere. But then there are also all these people in crazy sunglasses, warehouses with sick parties where all the girls are covered in spikes and black leather. It's a very weird place.
I hate being clean-shaven. My daughter gets very upset if I shave and says, 'Bring back the spikes, Dad.'

It is proper that the federal government help alleviate short-term disruptions and price spikes such as those brought about by Hurricane Katrina.
The critical part with meal spacing is that you stabilize your hormones so that you do not have those spikes in insulin that occur when you eat large meals.
