Will you keep your hat on all day?
Here you have it: The cover for Sarah Palin's memoir.
The book, originally planned for next spring, is coming out Nov. 17 with an announced first printing of 1.5 million copies. Palin and collaborator Lynn Vincent finished "Going Rogue" just two months after Palin's resignation as governor.
I used to love this show when I was a kid. Maybe it was the girls' hairstyles?
Something tells me that they are not going to use that famous question, "What was the strangest place you've ever made whoopee?"

NEW YORK (AP) -- "The Newlywed Game" is bringing on its first gay couple.
It's a celebrity duo for the long-running game show, now on the GSN cable network. George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on "Star Trek," will appear with his partner, Brad Altman. They just celebrated their first anniversary after being married in Los Angeles.
Takei and Altman have been together for 22 years, so they're nothing like the giggly young couples who appeared on the first version of the show.
Happy Birthday to my Honey! Love ya.
CEO of Whole Foods, John Mackey, is trying to stop health care reform by suggesting that any reform would be socialism. He wrote an opinion piece which you can find on the Wall Street Journal website. The link below is from Americablog and their post on Mr. Mackey.
There is nothing quite like a multi-millionaire or billionaire, suggesting that all Americans should just accept the status quo when it comes to health care. I am unemployed and do not have health insurance so I often do not go to the doctor when I am feeling ill or am in pain. I just can't afford to go. Almost all my friends are lucky enough to have health insurance, however, they are all complaining about how their plan rates are increasing at a time when they are not seeing increases in their salaries. They also complain about greater restrictions on what their policies will cover.
Most people have been hit hard by this downturn in the economy but CEO's of companies, like Mr. Mackey and those who head the insurance companies have not been hit hard at all. Do they ever have to delay seeing a doctor because they can't afford it? Are they worried about where the money for a loved one's medication is going to come from? Do they experience sleepless nights thinking how a chronic illness could drive them into bankruptcy? Are they rejected from receiving health insurance because of a pre-existing condition?
Think about all of our fellow Americans who are unemployed. Think of their children. Think about all of our fellow Americans who are fortunate enough to have employment but are seeing their health plan rates increase. Imagine what it's like for those who have to decide whether to pay their expensive health insurance rates or pay their mortgage/rent, food, or utility bills.
We need health care reform so that those who don't have the money to see a doctor can affordably get medical help.
We need health care reform to ensure that insurance companies don't raise their rates, just to fill their billionaire pockets.
We need health care reform so that people can afford to keep the health insurance that they have.
We need health care reform so insurance companies can't deny an American coverage because of any "pre-existing" condition.
We need health care reform so insurance companies can't tell any American that they have exceeded their insurance limits and will be denied care.
We need health care reform to help our fellow Americans; our mothers, our fathers, our sisters, our brothers, our children, and our neighbors.
All American should have the right to health and the right to health care.
We need health care reform, NOW!
I will not make any purchases at Whole Foods - I'm boycotting the store. I will not give one penny of my money to a millionaire/billionaire who wants to deny Americans affordable health care.
Who needs coffee when you've got pics of Jon Hamm!! Not only am I now awake, but I think it's getting a little warm in here. Whew!!!
I'd prefer him in person, however, this is probably as close as I'll get.
There are two more great pics at the following link at HuffPost Entertainment section...ENJOY!

Alaska Report is reporting that Sarah Palin and her husband Todd are divorcing. They claim to have this information confirmed by multiple sources close to the couple including a former Palin staffer. They also state that the stress of the split could be another reason she chose to resign as Governor of Alaska on July 26, 2009.
Astrologer Lynn Hayes also wrote about this possibility on her blog Astrological Musings (hosted by Deepak Chopra's Beliefnet.com) on July 4, 2009 and again August 1, 2009. It seems that transiting Pluto is making a square to her Venus, which could create problems in her marriage.
Interesting? You BETCHA!
I love their blog!
They have been friends for 60 years. Helen's grandson put together this blog so both Margaret and Helen could keep in touch (one lives in Texas, the other in Maine). 80 year old bloggers!
Here's an excerpt from one of their recent posts regarding the death of Michael Jackson:
The Appreciation or Depreciation of Michael Jackson « Margaret and Helen
Watching all this mad-dash coverage, it occurs to me that if you tore him down in life then it’s a tad bit hypocritical for you to now prop him up in death. Did I mention Joe Jackson was a piece of work? But we seem to be evolving into a nation of hypocrites. And as someone who believes evolution should be taught in school, I am more than a little worried about this evolutionary cycle.
If it were up to me, I would establish a few rules right about now regarding hypocrisy. Something along the lines of:
- If you’re Michael Jackson’s father now is not the time to be enjoying the limelight.
- You can’t be Pro-Life and Pro-War at the same time. If one of these dispositions has to be in your cadre, then pick one and live with the consequences.
- You can’t deny the right to marry to some and then cheat on your spouse. The right to happily marry belongs to all no mater how unhappy it makes you.
- You can’t tolerate the atrocities of one President for eight years and then assign the consequences to one who follows. From this day forward everything was Reagan’s fault.
- The Christian Right should be forced to spend a week in Iran. May the best radicals win.
- The Real Housewives should actually be housewives.
I hope this update makes it easier to navigate. I love having the application, but the lack of responding directly to notifications made it difficult to keep up a conversation.
