Undaunted by the controversy of just a few years ago, Madonna has again started the process of adopting a child from Malawi, according to officials in the impoverished southeast African nation.
Malawi officials and a U.S. counterpart, all speaking on condition of anonymity, have said that the pop star has filed adoption papers, though the singer’s spokeswoman would not comment on the matter. According to reports, Madonna is set to adopt a little Malawian girl.
In an interview with Malawi paper The Nation last week, Madonna said she was considering another adoption, but only if she had “the support of the Malawian people and government.”
Roughly translated, this means which ever family comes forward willing to sell their child first.
Why is it, that a millionaire can adopt a child on a whim, while thousands of good people who would make great parents are left waiting?
For crying out loud people, these are children not cars!!!!!

As parents to a 5 & 7 year old, my wife and I rarely have the chance to watch a movie that wasn’t made by Disney or starring Barbie! So when we the opportunity came to rent a scary movie, we were pretty excited. We were pretty happy to see Rogers (is there anybody else that rents great movies?) had a copy of Quarantine available. We saw the trailer and thought, ‘Wow, this is going to creep us out BIG TIME’.
When night fell, and the DVD player came to life we got comfortable on the couch and prepared for what should’ve been an awesome movie. Well it wasn’t. What a waste of time, I actually fast forwarded to the end to get the story over worth. I won’t give you any details because maybe you plan on renting it, but this flick will not win any awards. We were so ticked off, all we wanted was a good scary movie! Don’t they make them anymore? I got to go, The Tinkerbelle Movie is starting.

“LeAnn Rimes Caught in an Affair”That’s the headline on the cover of the latest issue of US Weekly magazine, which claims the country singer is cheating on her husband of seven years. A photo (see below) inside the mag allegedly shows Rimes kissing Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the upcoming Lifetime movie, ‘Northern Lights.’
“From the moment we rehearsed, LeAnn and Eddie honestly developed a really strong bond and a warm relationship,” movie director Mike Robe told Us.
The picture was captured on a security camera inside a Laguna Beach, Calif. restaurant where the two were having dinner. The magazine also claims the co-stars spent three secluded hours together at a hotel in Malibu last week.
Rimes married backup dancer Dean Sheremet in February of 2002, when she was 19 years old. Just last September, the couple told reporters they were ready to start trying for a baby. Cibrian has also been married for seven years and has two young children.
I have to be honest, the little smooch pictured below looks innocent enough.
OK, so that peck lasted a little bit bit longer than we thought!!1 Check out the video….

Read this in the Toronto Sun;
Team USA’s Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves is not a fan of Toronto after playing the World Baseball Classic.
“Just way too many days off,” Jones told the the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We stayed in Toronto for a week and played three games. I don’t know if you ever stayed in Toronto, but it’s not exactly Las Vegas. To say that we were plucking our eyebrows out one at a time would be an understatement.”
Gee Chipper, sorry there wasn’t enough gambling, topless bars and strip joints for you.

OK, I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of change! Don’t get me started on the new look of Facebook. Anyway, I saw this article about Dora The Explorer and how Mattel is ‘changing’ her look to appeal to a slightly older crowd. Let’s face it, those who loved Dora 3-4 years ago are that much older too. I’m shocked to hear what some parents are saying in various blogs, ‘Dora the streetwalker. A sexed-up version of a children’s icon. A poor example for kids’. Are you kidding me? The biggest Dora fan in our house, my 5 year old daughter Danielle, absolutely LOVED the new Dora. Plus, I don’t think watching a show starring her is going to pave the way for my child to pursue a career in pole-dancing (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Here she is, do you have a problem with the new Dora?

Spears, younger sister to pop-star Britney and a TV star in her own right, is reportedly shopping for a Nashville record deal. The teen already has a little bit of musical experience, singing the theme song to her Nickelodeon sitcom, ‘Zoey 101.’ Sources close to the Spears family tell E! that Jamie Lynn “has been quietly working on a country album since last fall.”

Things take a very awkward turn after This Hour Has 22 Minutes star ambushes Ont. premier. Bad timing or lack of a sense of humour?

So I get this e-mail from a friend of mine who’s putting together a band with some fellow studio musicians. Not a ‘garage band’ but one that’s very serious. They’ve played with some big names and are ready to take the country world by storm. Only problem is, they don’t have a name! I told him that I was going to put this on my blog and let you guys decide a name for this band, and I’m sure he thought I was joking!!!
If your name is used, I’ll see to it that you NEVER have to pay for a concert ticket to see them play.
So, what’s a good name for a Country Band?
